Allu Arjun has now broken that record. According to our sources, he will earn Rs 125 crore for his next film. T Series, a Bollywood production company, recently hired him for a pan-Indian project. Sandeep Reddy vanga, the director of ‘Arjun Reddy,’ will direct the film.
Allu Arjun reportedly demanded Rs 150 crore for this film, but the deal was struck at Rs 125 crore. As a result, he is now the highest-paid Telugu actor. He desired to make this record.
After two back-to-back hits in “Ala Vaikunthapurramloo” and “Pushpa,” Allu Arjun believes he has a huge market and demand for his films across India. He also believes that “Pushpa 2” will be as successful as “Baahubali 2” and “KGF 2,” grossing more than the first installment nationwide.
So, he demanded such a hefty paycheck.
