Who is the top actress in Telugu Film Industry at present? It is Rakul Preet Singh, the cute Punjabi girl who had been one of Miss India finalists. What is her pay cheque, being the top actress at present? Is she paid one crore? When asked the same during a media interaction, Rakul feigns innocence asking, “Me, in one crore bracket? It feels good.”
Though she doesn’t accept or refuse about being one crore actress, Rakul in turn questions, “Why don’t you discuss the pay cheque of heroes? They get 17-18 times of what a top actress is paid. For them, a heroine’s remuneration is just a throwaway price,” quips the actress.
She might not clearly answer ‘one crore’ question, she confirms that she isn’t paid one crore and half as reported by media earlier. Her pay cheque depends on the kind of banner, stars, number of days she has to dole out and the kind of character she has to play. Money is important, but it comes second says Rakul.
