If the latest reports are anything to go by, Super Star Mahesh Babu is the highest paid actor in Telugu film industry. Mahesh is apparently charging a bomb for his up next film, to be produced by V. Anand Prasad of Bhavya Creations, which makes Mahesh the numer uno star with highest remuneration. Buzz is that Mahesh is getting a fat pay cheque of Rs 18 Crore for this untitled film.
Sources in the know say that already producer Anand Prasad has paid Rs 8 Crore in advance to the star to book his dates. The movie will go onto floors only after Mahesh wraps up his next commitment, directed by Koratala Siva. We hear that a star director is going to do this project and his name is presently kept under wraps.
Till far, Mahesh used to charge Rs 14 Crore on par with his peer Pawan Kalyan. Recently, Pawan too hiked his pay after Attarintiki Daaredi and allegedly charging Rs 15 Crore for just 22 days for his upcoming film Gopala Gopala. Looks like Mahesh Babu and Pawan Kalyan are racing ahead towards remunerations of B-town stars.
