With a whopping 24 cr for Jayalalithaa biopic, Kangana Ranaut becomes the highest paid actress in the country

Few years ago, female led films were not expected to rake in big numbers at the Box Office. However, actresses like Kangana Ranaut have changed that. From having the highest number of 100 crore films to highest single day collections for a female led film, Kangana clearly leads the pack. And hence, it doesn’t come as a surprise the Ms Ranaut has been reportedly offered 24 crores for Jayalalithaa biopic, highest ever for any Bollywood actor for any South venture.

On Kangana’s birthday, it was announced that she has signed the bilingual on the legendary actress turned politician. Tiltled Thalaivi in Tamil and Jaya in Hindi, the film is being helmed by Vijay, who is considered one of the most accomplished directors in South, and written by KV Vijayendra Prasad. According to a source close to the development, “Kangana is being paid to the tune of Rs 24 crore for the bilingual project, which will be made in Hindi and Tamil. The makers are sure that her star power will help reach a pan-India audience. The producers have already signed a contract with her.”

Another notable aspect of the project is that whenever Hindi artistes have done South movies, they have always shared screen space with a top star from the region. But, in this case, Kangana will be leading from the front as the movie revolves around her character’s journey. Reportedly, many other accomplished actresses like Vidya Balan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were also being considered for the role. However, the producers decided to sign Kangana, and she also immediately agreed to be a part of the film as she has closely followed the life of the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister.
Kangana is currently working on Mental Hai Kya and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s Panga, post which, she will start work on the Jayalalithaa biopic.

Many people look up at superheroes,
Mine is my dad.

From seeing you push on from your ups and down,
You always managed to turn things around,
Looking at you turned my frown upside down.

A single word won’t do justice to what you mean to me,
But from here on now I’m not that kid anymore I’ve got you’re back indefinitely.
I owe my life to you cause without you I would never have had anything,
My ray of sunshine through everything.
Cause no matter how big the problem you never gave up,
And always came out of it with your head up.

I don’t think there ever will be anyone as tough,
Dad because of you I’m a fighter and I promise you I’ll never give up. #HappyFathersDay @iamsunnydeol

Karan wrote on his Instagram.
