If anyone thinks that Prince Mahesh Babu’s stocks or fan following took a beating following twin flops of 1-Nenokkadine and Aagadu, then they should have second thoughts.
According to insiders a top producer who made three films with Stylish Star Allu Arjun and a film with Power Star Pawan Kalyan gave a cheque of Rs 22 crores shocking Tollywood Super Star himself.
Mahesh who drew Rs 18 crores for his previous project kept the offer on hold. A source says “On one hand producers demand refund from big stars, but on the other, a producer goes ahead and puts up the fancy pay cheque before him, but actor hasn’t taken a call”. He goes on to add “His stardom is perfectly intact, so if the said film is wrapped up below 43 crores, still producer can make decent profit”
If Mahesh takes the offer than he will become the highest paid actor in Tollywood.
