We had recently reported that Nayantara might well be the highest paid actress in South India at the moment; the 'lady superstar', as she is fondly called by her fans, has been reportedly paid a fortune for her role in Vikram's yet to be titled project, directed by Anand Shankar of Arima Nambi fame.
Interestingly, the latest report has it that Nayantara relaxes her remuneration when she ventures out of Tamil cinema. When it comes to Malayalam films, the chassy actress' salary is nowhere near to what she gets paid in Kollywood.
Speaking to a leading daily, film-maker AK Sajan, who is directing the Thani Oruvan actress in a film titled Puthiya Niyamam, has admitted that Malayalam film industry cannot afford Nayantara her current salary.
It is said that she tends to reduce her salary if the script of a film is rewarding enough. Will the talented actress relax her remuneration if she is presented with an interesting script here in Tamil cinema?
