Is Sameera The Highest Paid Actress In South Indian Cinema?
There are many criteria to assess which star is bigger than the other. You could talk about their films or the heroes opposite whom they are cast or the budgets of the films they are working in but there is one sure fire way of assessing it. And that is to find out how much they are paid. In this game the surprise name is that of Sameera Reddy. Recently she starred in the Kollywood film ‘Vettai’ opposite Madhavan which also featured Arya and Amala Paul. We heard that for ‘Vettai’ she was paid thirty five lakhs. Incidentally the film is being remade in Bollywood by the same director Lingusamy. Sameera has accepted a role in a new Kannada film being produced by Shankar Gowda where she is being paid an even bigger amount. In recent times Nayantara was paid fifty lakhs for a film, Ramya or Divya Spandana was paid forty lakhs and Priyamani thirty lakhs. The producer however admitted that he she is the highest paid actress in Sandalwood and has paid Sameera more than all the others. Now that makes us wonder what the actress from Hyderabad actually got paid for the Kannada film!
