Balakrishna demands full pay before release


For the first time, Nandamuri Balakrishna has demanded full remuneration to be given before the entire shoot comes to an end. He has asked producer C Kalyan to settle the entire amount before he wraps up the dubbing part. Also, he is taking home high remuneration for ‘Ruler’. The senior star till a year ago was charging just Rs 5 to 7 crore. But for this movie he is taking more than Rs 10 Cr. This is a sudden jump in remuneration.

Balakrishna hiking his remuneration after two back-to-back flops of ‘NTR Kathanayakudu’ and ‘NTR Mahanayakudu’ has surprised the producer. But he has no option but agree to Balakrishna’s demand as producer C Kalyan made good profits on his previous movie ‘Jai Simha’.

C Kalyan is repeating the same combination of ‘Jai Simha’ with ‘Ruler’ and he can sell the movie for a good price. Knowing this well, Balayya has demanded high remuneration and full pay before the release.

KS Ravikumar is directing this film that will release on December 20.
