Pawan Kalyan, the resident 'Power Star' of Telugu cinema, is arguably one of the most revered names in Tollywood. The mass hero enjoys a strong and dedicated fan following despite not being too active in movies, which bears testimony to his star power. Now, PK is in the limelight for an awesome reason. During a recent interaction with the media, the Gabbar Singh hero revealed that he was paid around Rs 20 crore for Agnyaathavaasi, the 25th movie of his career.

In case, you did not know, Agnyaathavaasi was directed by Trivikram Srinivas and revolved around the exploits of a 'prince in exile'. The film ran into trouble when French filmmaker Jérôme Salle claimed that it was a copy of his popular action-thriller Largo Winch. To make matters worse, Agnyaathavaasi failed to impress the target audience and this resulted in its downfall. The film ended up being one of the biggest disasters of Pawan Kalyan's career.

The Jana Sena Chief tried his luck in the Andhra Pradesh assembly election but failed to make an impact.
