At a time when the remuneration of star heroes has touched the sky, there are few actors who are still taking much lesser amounts. Right now, the remuneration for a star hero is nearly 50 Crores.
Among senior heroes, Megastar Chiranjeevi is on par with star heroes, and even Venkatesh and Nagarjuna are said to be charging good amounts. At a time like this, it is a rather surprising issue that Nandamuri Balakrishna is taking just Rs. 7 Crores for Akhanda. The actor had reportedly quoted Rs. 10 Crores, but Boyapati is said to have fixed it at 7.
On the other hand, with Akhanda being made on a strict budget of Rs. 70 Crores, both Balyya and Boyapati are said to be taking home the profits from the film. Boyapati is reportedly not charging a single penny for the film, apart from the profits.
