Gone are the days when star directors used to take their fee, do the film and get going. Now, their business model has changed and they are coming up with package deals in Tollywood like corporate. Leading from the front is director S S Rajamouli and it is heard that this tough taskmaster has devised a family pack for his ongoing project ‘Bahubali’.
News is that Rajamouli got a family pack from producer Shobu Yarlagadda. According to reports, Rajamouli’s remuneration is Rs 12 crores followed by music director Keeravani’s fee at Rs 2 crores and then comes Vijayendra Prasad for his story at Rs 1 crore. The next layer has Rama Rajamouli for costumes.
Buzz is that Rama is getting paid twenty five lakhs and she is accompanied by Valli who is doing the production execution for the fee of twenty five lakhs. So, the total family pack offer from Rajamouli touches Rs 15.50 crores for ‘Bahubali’ if the numbers are right. Any producer wanting to work with Rajamouli, make a note.
