Actress Tamannaah is undoubtedly one of the leading actresses in both Kollywood and Tollywood. Though she has a solitary project in ‘Venghai’ opposite Dhanush in Tamil, she is busy as a bee in Telugu, with a couple of her big films getting ready for release.
The picture-perfect Tamannaah is also a much sought-after actress on the modeling front and is often spotted on television endorsing a variety of products from food items to bathing soaps. Thanks to a steady Telugu market, her fee is said to be on the risi for the past few years.
Tammu, as she is fondly called by her fans, is said to have ‘breached’ the Re.1 crore barrier as her fee for a film some time back. She is also said to be demanding and getting more money for her stage performances too. For a 3-minute long performance at a recent event, she reportedly asked for and got Rs.3 lakhs, it is said.
Recently, Tamannaah took part in the audio-launch of her upcoming Telugu film ‘100 Percent Love’ opposite Naga Chaitanya, who was conspicuous by his absence at the event. To perform for a song on stage at the event, Tamannaah was reportedly paid Rs.3 lakhs. This appears to be ‘going’ against the accepted convention that actors and actresses shouldn’t be paid at functions relating to launch of film and audio-launches!
