Nayanthara is the female lead opposite Balakrishna in upcoming film Jai Simha, which is set to release this Friday. Interestingly, according to a source, the actress had several unexpected demands before signing the film. It is said that the 33-year-old did not fancy working on the Telugu film in the first place, and gave in only because of director K.S. Ravi Kumar.
“She worked on the condition that she won’t do any intimate scenes with the lead actor and that she will not do the typical Telugu dance numbers either,” says a source in the know.
What’s surprising is that despite Nayanthara’s demands, the makers were keen on roping her in because of her fan-following and her sizzling chemistry with Balakrishna. “That’s the reason she has charged a high amount along with all these demands,” adds the source.
Produced by C. Kalyan, Natasha Doshi will be seen playing the other female lead in Jai Simha.
