There was a time a couple of years back, when Nayanatara was written off thanks to issues in her personal life. But the lady has striked back and she has been giving good hits in Tamil.
Till now, the word was that she commanded at least Rs 3 crore as remuneration. In fact, no other south Indian heroine or any heroine up north does not command that kind of remuneration. Even heroines who have given back to back hits barely get Rs 1 to Rs 2 crores.
But Nayanatara and Anushka are two leading ladies who make at least Rs 3 crores per film. Though now, Nayanatara has gone one step further. Her latest remuneration is Rs 5 crore per film. The news came out when a Tamil producer disclosed the same to media.
But that's not all. Then there are hotel charges, ticket charges, expenses towards her personal staff, food bills among other miscellaneous charges. He says, when one adds up, the total remuneration will come up to another Rs 50 lakh or Rs 1 crore.
So, in all, a producer has to be ready to pay Rs 6 crore to her, says a producer who made a film with Nayanatara.
Well, a film with Nayanatara or Anushka sells in three languages. Then, there is the possibility of dubbing into Hindi. In all, it will be a worth-while investment, feel her producers.
