Mega Powerstar Ram Charan successfully outshined Superstar Mahesh Babu, when it comes to pay package.
According to the reliable sources, Charan is charging a staggering Rs 15 crore as his remuneration for the bi-lingual flick ‘Zanjeer’ remake, which also marks his debut in Bollywood. For all the flicks he signed recently, the producers have reportedly paid him Rs 12 crores as his pay package. But for ‘Zanjeer’, which happens to be his first bi-lingual, he is said to have asked the makers to pay Rs 12 crore for the Telugu version and Rs 3 crores for the Hindi version as his remuneration.
On the other hand, Mahesh Babu who films are having a dream run at the Box Office is currently quoting a remuneration of Rs 12 crore per film. He has no plans to enter the Hindi Film Industry, for atleast another 3-4 years.
“We rarely witness a hero pocketing Rs 15 crore as his remuneration in South. Only, Rajni has done that before. For Charan, who has done just four films till now, it’s a big achievement. He couldn’t have asked for more,” said a trade pundit.
For now, Charan has an edge over Mahesh, but in the long run only the success of his films at the Box Office will be the deciding factor. The Battle Ahead!!!
