This Sankranthi marked the comeback of Lady superstar Vijaya Santhi to the silver screen. Telugu audience enjoyed the veteran actress’s screen presence this sankranthi. She played a crucial role in Superstar Mahesh Babu’s Sarileru Neekevvaru.
It took quite a while for the director Anil Ravipudi to convince her for the role. But it looks like besides the script, huge remuneration was also an important factor for her accepting the role. As per our sources, the Lady superstar charged about 1.25 Crores excluding GST to accept the role. It is interesting because that amount is double the amount paid to the lead lady Rashmika Mandanna by the producers. Female artists too are demanding quite a fortune these days as reports say senior actresses Nadiya, Kushboo and Tabu also charged similarly in recent times.
Besides this Vijaya Santhi also confirmed that she won’t be acting in every other movie. I need concrete roles that are quite author-backed. I’m happy even if I do just one film a year” said Vijayasanthi in Sarileru Neekevvaru promotions. End of the day, Vijaya Santhi scored a BlockBuster on her return to the silver screen with her sankranthi release.
