Actor Nandamuri Balakrishna is going to hike his remuneration. The senior actor, who just delivered a hit with Gautamiputra Satakarni, is now going to charge a whopping Rs 10 crore as his remuneration, as opposed to his earlier fee of Rs 7 crore that he charged for each of his films.
A source from the industry says, “In recent years, the actor hadn’t hiked his remuneration as he didn’t want to burden the producer much. But now, with the success of Gautamiputra Satakarni, one of the highest grosser amongst his films, he has decided to go ahead with the hike.”
Balakrishna had recently announced that he is planning to shoot a biopic on his late father’s life. Meanwhile, Balakrishna was supposed to shoot for Krishna Vamsi’s ‘Rythu’ after his landmark 100th film. He, however, kept the film on hold as Amitabh Bachchan is yet to give his consent for a Special Role in the movie. A clarity on Balayya’s 101st Flick might arrive by the end of March 2017.
