Ever since Vijayanthi Movies and director Nag Ashwin announced the name of Bollywood top actress Deepika Padukone as herione in Prabhas 21st film on Sunday, July 19, 2020, it created a lot of buzz not just in Tollywood but the entire Indian film industry.
Rumour mills are abuzz that Deepika Padukone charged a bomb to act in Prabhas 21 film.
Speculations are rife that Deepika Padukone charged a whooping Rs 30 crore to sign the file alongside Prabhas.
While there is confirmation or denial from film producer or director on these rumours, they went viral on social media.
The social media platforms are flooded with posts on Deepika's Rs 30 crore remuneration, which is more than several top Tollywood and Bollywood heroes.
Shockingly, netizens are taking a dig at Vyjayanthi movies Ashwini Dutt, director Nag Ashwin as well as Deepika questions is she worth Rs 30 crore and is it necessary for Tollywood to spend such a huge amount on a Bollywood heroine, who is no more in the top league.
Netizens say Prabhas has stamina and mass appeal to attract audiences in India and movie buffs across the world due to his "Bahubali image" and Prabhas does not require a Bollywood heroine like Deepika Padukone to establish himself as a pan-India hero.
Netizens suggest Producer, Director as well as Prabhas to spend the amount that was being spent on Deepika for world-class graphics/ Vfx/ rich locations to make the movie look more rich and lavish which will attract audience more than Deepika.
It remains to be seen how the movie makers, Prabhas and Deepika react on these rumours and arguments.
