Buzz: Vijayasanthi Charges Double Than Rashmika

This Sankranthi season, Telugu audiences have enjoyed the comeback of veteran heroine Vijayasanthi to the silver screen. She played a key role in Anil Ravipudi's directorial Sarileru Neekevvaru that has Mahesh in the lead. Though it took a while for Anil to convince the starlet to do the role, more than the script, it looks like even the hefty remuneration also played a key role in bringing her.

We are hearing that Vijayasanthi charged a whopping 1.25 crores excluding GST to come aboard for Sarileru Neekevvaru. That's double that what the film's leading lady Rashmika Mandanna is paid by the producers. Well, it looks like these character artist ladies are turning out to be super expensive as the likes of Nadiya, Kushboo and Tabu also charged similarly for their Telugu acts in recent times.

At the same time, Vijayasanthi confirms that she won't be raining in films back to back. "I need concrete roles that are quite author-backed. I'm happy even if I do just one film a year" said Vijayasanthi recently while promoting her Sankranthi release which turned out to be a super hit.
