Tollywood Heros Remuneration is Really Unbelievable!
With the success of multiple pan-India films over the years, the market value of Telugu cinema and its star actors has skyrocketed. When it comes to remuneration, they have achieved new heights. While it is an unspoken truth that the hero’s salary accounts for the majority of the film’s budget, Tollywood producers are going to great lengths to produce films worth Rs 500 crore, where we know how much the A-list heroes charge per film. In contrast, Tollywood’s male lead performers are making use of their fame to earn large salaries that are significantly greater than they were a decade ago.
According to information trending on social media platforms, reports by the state newspaper show the likely remuneration of stars Prabhas, Mahesh Babu, Allu Arjun, and others. They claim that not just one, but five of the biggest stars demand no less than Rs. 50 crore for each film. The top six actors are listed below in ascending order based on their most recent earnings.
Prabhas began his cinematic career with the film Eshwar and has since given several hit Telugu films. Prabhas, the first pan-India Telugu film star, is still the highest-paid actor, thanks to the success of Baahubali. He reportedly charged almost Rs 100 crore for his most recent theatrical production, Radhe Shyam. Prabhas will collect approximately Rs 150 crore for Adipurush.
Mahesh Babu is a South Indian actor who began his career as a child performer and made his lead acting debut with “Rajakumarudu” in 1999. Mahesh Babu, who is working on a film with SS Rajamouli, reportedly received Rs 45 crore for his previous film Sarkaru Vaari Paata. According to speculations, Mahesh will earn around Rs 100 crore for his next film, ‘SSMB28,’ which he is co-producing with director Trivirkam Srinivas.
He has received numerous honors for his brilliant performances and is the son of the popular actor, Chiranjeevi. Ram Charan, who starred in RRR and is currently collaborating with famous filmmaker Shankar on the next RC 15, reportedly received roughly Rs 50 Crore for the movie, which went on to receive critical praise throughout the world. The movie was the highest-grossing foreign picture in Japan and received numerous international accolades.
The part of Komaram Bheem was played by another RRR actor, Jr. NTR (also known as NT Rama Rao), who got praise for his work in the SS Rajamouli-directed movie.
