Ravi Teja has recently made a smashing comeback to silver screen after nearly two years. During the promotions of “Raja The Great”, he told that he would no more do routine masala entertainers. He seemed to have become a changed person physically (more lean and fit) too. However, the latest buzz in film circles is that he is back to his alleged greedy ways.
While there are several rumors about why Ravi Teja took a long sabbatical after the release of “Bengal Tiger” in 2015, the prime speculated reason was his high pay demand. After Bengal Tiger, 2-3 projects of Ravi Teja were reportedly shelved in the pre-production stage itself because the producers weren’t able to meet his quoted high remuneration. This coupled with some alleged health-imposed complications led the actor to take a long sabbatical.
Now, as the actor has made a solid comeback with RTG, producers have once again started approaching him, but Ravi Teja is allegedly intimidating most of them by quoting higher remuneration, nearly Rs 10 Cr. This pay issue is being said as one of the reasons why he had opted out of “Bogan” remake, for which he had earlier given a commitment.
Director Anil Ravipudi’s brand contributed as much as Ravi Teja’s stardom for the success of RTG, but the hero is taking sole credit, and is quoting very high remuneration showing the collections of RTG, alleged a producer who was shocked with the actor’s demands.
Meanwhile, Ravi Teja hasn’t yet officially signed a new film post RTG.
