Nadiya, the name is made so popular in Telugu film circles. Thanks to the super duper hits of ‘Aththarintiki Daaredi’ of Pawan Kalyan and ‘Mirchi’ of Prabhas where in nadiya played key characters. More than the commercial BO result, Nadiya has become a matter of positive omen for producers and directors. Believing in the same sentiment, 14 Reels Entertainment producers have approached Nadiya to play the sister character to Mahesh Babu in ‘Aagadu’ while Tamanna is the main heroine.
According to the information, Tamanna who lost plenty of market in Telugu due to Bollywood commitments is actually in a lean phase and do not want to miss the life time opportunity of working with Mahesh Babu. So, she negotiated the remuneration for a mere 40 Lakhs which is unfortunately less than that of what Nadiya demanded as 50 Lakhs. This means, Tamanna has come cheaper by 10 Lakhs than nadiya for ‘Aagadu.’
