Bellamkonda Srinivas is yet to score a unanimous hit as hero. His debut film Alludu Seenu was a profitable one for its buyers, but his father (Bellamkonda Suresh) lost a chunk of money due to high investment.
Srinivas’s second film Speedunnodu was an outright dud and his third film Jaya Janaki Nayaka couldn’t recover its high costs despite positive word of mouth and brand Boyapati Srinu in favor of it.
Srinivas’s fourth film Saakshyam is due for release in this month. Although he hasn’t scored a unanimous hit till now, Srinivas is known for doing lavish films.
Besides Speedunnodu, every film that he featured till now had grand production values. His films also fetch very good prices from buyers compared to other medium range heroes.
The fact that his films sell for high prices might be the reason for AK Entertainments to offer hefty paycheck for Bellamkonda Sreenivas.
He was reportedly paid Rs. 5 crore as remuneration for his recently launched film with director Teja.
Producer Anil Sunkara who used to make low budget films on AK Entertainments has now launched a big film with Teja and Sreenivas. He had offered an amount that Sreenivas couldn’t say no.
He could have got the dates of any popular mid range star for that price. But Sunkara chose Sreenivas above all.
