It is known that Pooja Hedge
has been approached for Akhil Akkineni's 4th film, #Akhil4, which is set to be produced by Bunny Vasu under Geetha Arts 2 banner. However, sources close to the production has informed us that Allu Aravind, who is spearheading Geetha Arts has refused to cast Pooja, who has quoted Rs 1.50 crore for the film. If we go into the details, Pooja, who is revelling on successive hits, has been getting Rs 1.50 crore for Allu Arjun's Ala Vaikuntapuramlo and eventually, she has quoted the same remuneration for Akhil4. Surprisingly, Geetha Arts, who doesn't zero in on a female lead without negotiations has offered Rs 1.25 crore for Pooja, which is about Rs 25 lakh less than what she is getting for Ala Vaikuntapuramlo. As Pooja is rigid on getting the same remuneration as Ala Vaikuntapuramlo, the makers of Akihil4 have decided to look for another actress, who comes handy, for a relatively lower pay package than her. It is learnt that they have approached a one-film -old actress as Pooja's replacement for this film which is being directed by Bommarillu Bhaskar. We have learnt that the female lead's character will be on the lines of Sai Pallavi from Fidaa, and it has to be seen who will snatch this offer.
