Pooja Hegde is one of the most sought after South Indian actresses right now. Pooja Hegde — who was last seen alongside Allu Arjun in Ala Vaikuthapurramuloo — has apparently hiked her remuneration for upcoming projects again.
If anything to go by media reports, Pooja Hegde — who took Rs 1.5 crore for Bellamkonda Srinivas starrer Sakshyam — has reportedly demanded Rs 2 crore for her upcoming project, making her one of the highest paid Indian actresses.
For Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, Pooja Hegde reported paid Rs 1.40 crore as her remuneration. The massive hit of Allu Arjun and Pooja Hegde starrer seems to have changed the game for the letter and she is now demanding a staggering amount for her upcoming movies.
Pooja Hegde is demanding Rs 2 crore fees for her upcoming film, which is no doubt a big amount for a actress, given the current situation pertaining to COVID-19 outbreak. However, it is reported that Pooja Hegde charged Rs 1 crore for Prabhas starrer Radhy Shyam as she had signed the film before Ala Vaikuthapurramuloo hit the theaters.
Not only Tollywood but also Bollywood and Kollywood are currently witnessing an economic recession due to the outbreak of Coronavirus. It is likely that producers of the film will try their best to slash the production costs and actors would not be having the luxury of getting massive remunerations.
It is yet to be seen if Pooja Hegde can get things going her way and sign projects with her high financial demands. Notably, she has not signed any film post Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
