is taking on the role of the female lead in Megastar Chiranjeevi
. The latest buzz is that the actress who would charge up to 2+ crores for a film has now cut down her remuneration for the film. Sources say Kajal has quoted a price of Rs 1.5 crores for Acharya.
The entertainment industry has taken a hit amid the coronavirus outbreak. A couple of weeks ago, sources said that makers of Chiranjeevi’s upcoming film Acharya have decided to cut down on the budget owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. Several reports of actors and technicians slashing their big paychecks have also come out in the recent past. So it is no surprise that Kajal could have reduced her remuneration for the film.
Helmed by Koratala Siva, the film has a star-studded cast. Apart from Chiranjeevi and Kajal Aggarwal, the film also stars Sonu Sood
. Megastar Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan too will appear in the film. Earlier Trisha was to play the female lead role. However, she walked out of the film citing creative differences. Kajal then confirmed her role in a fan interaction session on her social media.
Meanwhile, Kajal Aggarwal is gearing up to play the leading lady in two big-budget films. She will next appear in Kamal Haasan’s Indian 2 and Manchu Vishnu’s Mosagallu. Kajal will also star in a Tamil remake of the Bollywood film Queen titled Paris Paris.
