Super Star Mahesh Babu will be doing a film in the direction of Koratala Siva soon. DVV Danayya is the producer.
Industry sources say that Mahesh Babu has been offered a remuneration of Rs 25 crore plus share in profits.
Koratala Siva would get Rs 14 crore plus a share in profits, which means that Rs 39 crore plus a certain percentage of profits would go just towards remuneration of the star hero and director.
Only god knows what the total cost of production would end at finally and how much Danayya would need to sell the project for to make a profit.
But then, heroes and directors charge so much only because there are producers like Danayya willing to cough up such astronomical sums.
Even if Danayya backs out, there are many such producers in line who are just thrilled to make a movie with stars. Baahubali has indeed changed the whole dynamics of Tollywood!
