Yes, indeed it is a perfect gift as the Bollywood Actress Kangana Ranaut has reportedly charged Rs. 24 crore for her new project and is on her way to becoming the highest paid female actress in India. She will be playing the role of former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu J Jayalalithaa in her biopic “Thalaivi”.
As per a source close to the project,
“Kangana is being paid to the tune of Rs 24 crore for the bilingual project, which will be made in Hindi and Tamil. The makers are sure that her star power will help reach a pan-India audience. The producers have already signed a contract with her”.
The makers of the biopic announced that they have already acquired the No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the actress-politician’s nephew. Director AL Vijay and writer K.V Vijayendra Prasad will be the part of this biopic and will be titled “Thalaivi” in Tamil and “Jaya” in Hindi.
