Of course, every hero hikes his fee basing on his present market at the box office. After the super success of Geetha Govindam, Vijay Devarakonda is said to be asking for 10 crores paycheque. Then what about his senior Nani, who is scoring back to back hits and above-average films from some time?
Earlier Nani used to ask for 6-8 crores, depending on the kind of film and the producer. But now, he is said to be asking for a 50% total budget of the movie as his pay packet. That said, he wants to take home something more than that of 10+ crores per film.
A little birdie tells us, "Nani's films are usually made with 15-25 crores budget. And even if he takes 50% of that as his fee, it adds 7-13 cr to the budget, while his films are getting sold at 35-40 crores. That gives producer 5-10 crores profit even before the film releases".
However, Nani has to make sure that he will pick up subjects that are unique to him rather than DevaDas and Krishnarjuna Yudham which are completely away from his domain.
