Mumbai actresses in Tollywood are much in demand and decide their remuneration accordingly. Actress Pooja Hegde, who made her Telugu debut with Oka Laila Kosam and then acted in Mukunda, is the latest one to hike her fee. Although both her films had only average business, she went on to do a Hindi film Mohenjo Daro opposite Hrithik Roshan.
Although the romantic adventure was a big flop, the actress has bagged a big ticket project in Telugu, Duvvada Jagannadham. Now we hear that Pooja is also paired opposite Bellamkonda Srinivas in an upcoming film directed by Srivass. “The actress has charged nearly Rs 1.5 crore for the film as she hiked her remuneration all of a sudden,” says a source.
