Heroine is just a passing cloud in Tollywood
Mumaith Khan, the rising heroine of Tollywood, has now become an eyesore to many a heroine when she accepted a remuneration of about Rs. 20 lakhs, beating even some big heroines. Maisamma IPS – with its story, screenplay by none other than Union Minister Dasari Narayana Rao – is starring Mumaith in a powerful police officer role with both mass and class shades. Her latest film Operation Duryodhana fetched her name and fame overnight. Its director Posani came out with high praise for Mumaith’s honesty and professional outlook. She also played a glamorous role in Venu Madhav’s Bhukailas.
All the prevailing heroines are slipping into a corner after doing a film or two and their remuneration too is getting reduced by more than half. The dialogue of Raja in Toss – Grahacharam Ghanta Maretho Kudha Bhee Kuch Bee Nahi Karoonga – is apt. Aarthi Agarwal, who charged between 60-80 Lk is said to be ready for 5 Lk. Trisha’s remuneration which dangled in between 60-80 till recently is cut by nearly half of the fee. Same is the case with Nayantara. Heroines like Kamna Jetmalani and Priyamani are not particular about fee but roles.
