Hero Nithiin has been going through a dull phase in his career. He has delivered a hat-trick of flops with his last three movies – LIE, Chal Mohan Ranga and Srinivasa Kalyanam. He is determined to bounce back to form with Chalo director Venky Kudumula’s soon to be launched Bhishma.
In what could be called an adverse effect of these hat-trick flops, Nithiin’s remuneration is said to have taken a massive hit. Apparently his paycheck has been cut down to half of what he has charged for his last couple of films.
Nithiin took 6 crores as his remuneration for LIE, which ended up as one of the biggest disasters in his career. Later, Dil Raju reduced one crore of Nithiin’s remuneration for LIE and paid him 5 crores for Srinivasa Kalyanam.
And here’s an exclusive update. Apparently, Nithiin demanded 5 crores as his remuneration for Bhishma. However, the makers at Sithara Entertainments, the banner that’s bankrolling Bhishma, are not willing to pay 5 crores to Nithiin. They are ready to offer him 3 crores, which is exactly half of his salary for LIE. Discussions are still going on.
