Ram Charan has been trying to rope in some big stars for his father Chiranjeevi’s next ambitious period drama titled “Uyyalavada Narasimha Reddy”. He has already approached Aishwarya Rai.
She is said to have demanded the price that she is getting in Bollywood for this movie. She takes home Rs 9 cr per movie as remuneration even though she has lost craze of late.
Aishwarya Rai’s comeback movies “Jajbaa” and “Sarabjit” were disasters but she scored a hit with “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” in which she played a glamorous role.
Aishwarya Rai has earlier acted in many South Indian movies. For Rajinikanth’s “Robo”, she was paid Rs 6 cr. At that time, she was the number one actress in India. Today, she doesn’t have the same craze. Still she is demanding nearly Rs 9 cr movie.
“Uyyalavada Narasimha Reddy” will have three heroines. Aishwarya Rai’s role will be the main one.
Ram Charan believes that big names like Aishwarya Rai would add lot of glitz to the movie. “Uyyalavada Narasimha Reddy” is being directed by Surender Reddy.
The script is prepared by Parachuri Brothers and it is set for launch on 22nd August. It has to be seen whether Charan would agree to pay Aishwarya Rai such huge remuneration.
