With four back-to-back hits and three being blockbusters, director Koratala Siva has hiked his remuneration. If industry sources are to be believed, Siva is demanding a staggering Rs 30 Crore for his next which is yet to be finalized. Buzz is that Siva is expecting Rs 30 Crore as his fee and is ready to give his dates to producer who is willing to pay the exorbitant amount as his fee.
After Mirchi, Srimanthudu, Janatha Garage and the recent Bharat Ane Nenu, Siva is of the opinion that he has joined the likes of Rajamouli, Sukumar, Boyapati. Since Trivikram and Sreenu Vaitla are out of form, Siva seems to be entering into the league of Top 5 and hence reportedly demanding such high amount. Fact is that except Rajamouli, none of the directors are in that bracket of demanding Rs 30 Crore. Yet Siva seems to be pushing for high pay for his work, say rumour mill.
Talk is Siva isn't hurry and keen to wait for dates of stars and meantime looking out for Producers to work out his next. The huge success of Bharat Ane Nenu seems to have doubled the Siva's confidence levels.
