It is said that Telugu actor Ram Charan is quite upset after he got to know that Priyanka Chopra, his co-star in the movie Zanjeer will be getting paid more than him.
Just a few days back it was said that Priyanka Chopra would be paid a whopping 9 crore for playing the lead role in Zanjeer. The talk in media circles is that, "Priyanka is being paid 'on par' or 'more than' Charan"
Ram Charan is an Indian film actor from Telugu Cinema born to Telugu actor Chiranjeevi, he made his debut as lead actor with the film Chirutha in 2007. He will be making his Bollywood debut through Zanjeer.
It is rumoured that Ram Charan's people are peeved and want to make it clear that Charan flies high with a 12 crore pay and Priyanka lags behind with a 5.5 crore price tag.
A source said that, "It is ridiculous to even suggest that PC will get a price higher than that of Charan's. Charan is getting 10 crore in Andhra Pradesh and has been signed on for 12 crore now for his Bollywood debut.
Whoever is responsible for these stories should do some serious re-thinking."
Priyanka is not even given half of what Ram Charan is being paid. Her pay pack is just Rs 5.5 crore and another Rs 50 lakhs was allotted to her for travelling expenses, five star hotel accomodation and food.
Whereas the makers had already paid a whopping Rs 10 crore to the telugu megastar Ram Charan and now the actor would get an additional Rs 2 crore after wrapping up the entire shoot. Overall, Charan's pay pack is Rs 12 crore (excluding other expenses).
