Mohanlal's remuneration for 'Janatha Garage'Mar 24, 2016 08:55 AM
Malayalam Superstar Mohanlal is in demand even in Telugu currently. He is acting in Chandraksekhar Yeleti's 'Manamantha' and NTR's 'Janatha Garage' simultaneously.
For the NTR starrer, the makers have initially offered Rs.1.5 crores and the Malayalam rights of the film as remuneration to the 'Drishyam' actor. The producers felt that the Malayalam rights would fetch not more than Rs. 2 crores. But the Malayalam rights were sold for a record price of Rs. 4.5 crores, which means the total remuneration of the actor is close to Rs.6 crores.The makers might have been shocked with the price the rights have fetched. Mohanlal should be very happy with the remuneration he got, since he is not playing the lead role.
The Mumbai schedule of the film has been wrapped up and the makers will start a small schedule in Hyderabad shortly. After this short schedule, the unit will start shooting for a long schedule at Garage set erected at Saradhi Studios in Hyderabad. Samantha is expected to join the shoot in the Hyderabad schedule. Nitya Menen had already shot for some very crucial scenes in Mumbai.
This film is being produced under Mythri Movie Makers, the banner which earlier produced a blockbuster like 'Srimanthudu'.
