Rashmika Mandanna is currently the actress in demand in Tollywood. She announced her arrival loud and clear with two back-to-back hits of Sarileru Neevaru and Bheeshma. The actress is presently starring in the Allu Arjun-Sukumar’s Pushpa movie, but the film has not yet gone on sets. After the success of Bheeshma, the actress wanted to increase her remuneration. She charged One Crore for Pushpa and planned to quote between 1.5 to 2 Crore for her next films, but the corona crisis is unlikely to allow that.
The makers are unlikely to raise her pay as there are demands already that stars should reduce their pay. Rashmika should postpone her remuneration increase as her contribution. At least her next two to three movies are likely to be in the same range. Rashmika will join the shoot of Pushpa soon after the lockdown. It is reported that she will be playing a challenging role in the film.
