It took everybody by surprised, when pretty actress Kajal reportedly gave a nod to work with relatively newcomer Udayanidhi Stalin, after working with big stars like Vijay, Surya, Karthi in Kollywood. But there is a big reason behind it and it gradually unfolds. She has become the highest paid actress in South India. As she surpassed her colleagues -Ileana (1.5 crore for Snehitudhu) and Trisha (1.6 crore for Tamil-Telugu untitled film femal-centirc film)- as she reportedly pocketed Rs. 1.75 crore for her film opposite Tamil actor Udayanidhi Stalin upcoming Tamil film.

Even though, she had more hits in Telugu including her last release Badshah, but Telugu producers, were reluctant to hike her pay cheque so it just hovered around Rs. 1 crore. But Tamil star and grandson of ex-Chief Minister Karunanidhi realized her potential and offered her a fancy pay packet and she immediately allotted dates for the romantic entertainer. So she has reason to focus more on Kollywood since they understood her full popularity and paying her remuneration which she rightly deserves and justifies her growing popularity.

If T-town dream merchants, don’t change their mindset, she would do more films in K-town, even though big stars like Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh and Ram Charan are willing to share screen space with her. Are top Telugu producers listening?
