However, a source reveals that following the success of the Puri Jagannadh’s directorial, she has hiked her remuneration and is reportedly charging Rs 1 crore for the project.
Meanwhile, several Tollywood personalities are expected to attend the film launch on Sunday. The source also reveals that Ram Charan may attend as a special guest.
"Chiranjeevi used to stay opposite Krishna’s house when the industry was in Chennai, so Ram Charan is very close to Krishna’s family. He has previously attended Krishna’s daughter’s film events as a guest. Now, Jay Galla has specially requested his presence and he has agreed,” says the source, who adds that the two families even holidayed together in Switzerland a few years ago.
