If you click, there is nothing like the Telugu industry. Character artistes and comedians make good money. Senior Naresh takes home at least Rs 1.5 lakh per day.
Similarly, Rao Ramesh takes back around Rs 2.5 lakh. Sunil who has turned a comedian again charges from Rs 3 to Rs 4 lakh per day, whereas Vennela Kishore charges about Rs 1.5 lakh.
So, if one is audience-friendly, then they can be sure of good remuneration. Now when it comes to someone like 'Sivagami', then she will be approached only if the role is worthy of her. If the role is written for her and suits her style of acting.
Well, the latest buzz in Tollywood is that she charges on the steeper side.
Right now, she is acting in Sailaja Reddy Alludu which also stars Naga Chaitanya. Since the title is on her character, you can well imagine how much she should be charging. She is said to have taken 25 call sheets for the entire film.
And as per unit members, she is currently charging Rs 6 lakh per day for shoot. This adds up to around Rs 1.5 crore, which naturally means she is charging more than top heroines.
Only Rakul Preet is in the range of Rs 1 crore. Tamannah who is in the fade out mode is charging up to Rs 65 lakh.
Ramya Krishna has surely learnt make money out of her success.
On the other hand, Vijayashanti, who could have enjoyed similar success, ended up having an uneventful career in politics and landed neither here nor there!
