Tollywood Superstar Mahesh Babu keeps claiming that he would rise the bar on himself and surely has done it by reportedly pocketing Rs. 20 crore for his upcoming film under the direction of Koratala Siva and also given a chance to overseas distributors to turn producers with a 50- crore extravaganza.
The actor has been revising his pay Cheque for few years and reportedly earned 18 crores for ‘Aagadu’ , so the next step was to touch a new benchmark in T-town remunerations. With his market expanding every other day and almost touching 65 crores (including 10 crores on overseas), producers are willing to pay him his price, as its win-win situation for both the star and producer.
No doubt, his arch rivals, Pawan, NTR and Charan would be spending some sleepless nights by looking at the numbers that Mahesh is getting from film to film.
