Janhvi Kapoor asked for a fat paycheck for her Telugu debut

Happening hero Vijay Deverakonda is currently busy promoting his upcoming film World Famous Lover. After the release of it, he will start working on his next project Fighter, under the direction of Puri Jagannath. The shoot of this film will go on floors in January 2020.

Meanwhile, it is being reported in media from the last few weeks that Puri is planning to make this film as a pan-Indian one, considering the nationwide fame of Vijay Deverakonda. It was also stated that Bollywood ace director Karan Johar will release the film in the North Indian circuit.
Puri is also trying to rope in Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor as the female lead of the film. Janhvi has stated in a talk show that she wants to act with Vijay Deverakonda and moreover, her inclusion will bring more hype to the film in Telugu. Thus, the makers are keen on signing her up.
But we hear that Janhvi is demanding a remuneration of Rs. 3.5 crores to act in the film. That is huge, considering the average standards of the Telugu film industry. Apparently, the makers have agreed to pay the amount as well. If everything goes well, Fighter will be Jahnvi's debut film in South India.
