Tollywood and Bollywood’s yesteryears beauty queen Sridevi is one artiste who is aimed at by many producers and directors to rope her in their films for any special roles. After her come back flick “English Vinglish” in Bollywood, Sridevi never seemed to be in a hurry to sign the films. She has been choosy in signing up the films, though she is getting bunch of offers in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi at a time. It is learnt that Sridevi is now wanting to pick Tamil and Telugu flicks only if she is offered a huge pay packet. Recently she was paid hefty sum for Vijay-Hansika’s flick in Tamil.
Though few Telugu film makers are also keen to rope Sridevi in for their films, the amopunt that her husband Bony Kapoor is demanding on her behalf is threatening many of them it seems.
As per the latest buzz, it is learnt that a noted producer approached Sridevi for a mother role in a Telugu flick opposite a big star. They say that UV Productions approached her for Prabhas’ movie, but there is no clarity over that. Anyway, Sri’s husband Boney Kapoor quoted nearly 5 crores in case if they want her dates for real.
Isn’t it so funny ?Who would dare to invest 5 cr for an aged actress ? Rather, one would prefer to rope in star heroines like Kareena, Katrina or Deepikia Padukone for special songs if the situation demands. What say folks?
