Pooja Hegde refuses to cut remuneration to get offers

Pooja Hegde

Pooja Hegde was initially selected as the heroine in the movie “Mr. Bachchan” starring Ravi Teja. The film was recently launched. Director Harish Shankar and Pooja Hegde have developed a strong friendship since she gained popularity in the Telugu film industry with her role in his movie “DJ Duvvada Jagannadham.”


He desired to cast her alongside Ravi Teja due to the novelty of their pairing. But in the final minute, the role was given to a new actress named Bhagyashri Borse.

It has been discovered that Pooja Hegde demanded the same paycheck she previously received when she held a prominent position. Pooja Hegde had commanded a remuneration ranging from Rs 3.50 Crore to 4 Crore during the peak of her career. However, all of her most recent films became duds at the box office. She has not received any new film offers in the past 18 months. It is reported that she continues to demand a salary of Rs 3.5 crore.

According to our sources, the makers decided not to cast her and instead chose a newcomer named Bhagyashri Borse, who will be paid no more than Rs 15 lakhs.

In order to receive more film offers, Pooja Hegde should have lowered her salary to less than Rs 2.5 crore. After achieving success, she can once again assert her authority to negotiate for higher remuneration.

But her obstinate attitude appears to have resulted in a decrease in the number of offers she receives.
