Samantha Ruth Prabhu has been in news constantly for some time now. The Tamil actress first made headlines with her stellar performance in The Family Man season 2, later for her split from husband Naga Chaitanya. Recently, she has garnered eyeballs due to her item number in the Allu Arjun-led film ‘Pushpa’ and the obnoxiously high fees she has charged for the song.
Earlier, a few reports suggested that the actress charged Rs. 1.5 crores for just her special dance number alongside Allu Arjun, now the recent inputs claim that the price is Rs 5 crores.
Reportedly, Samantha Ruth Prabhu didn’t say yes to the Pushpa item number easily, she charged the makers Rs 5 crore for the 3-minute dance number. A source close to the development stated, “Oh, she has charged a bomb for the Oo Antava dance number. Believe me, she was very reluctant. The film’s leading man Allu Arjun personally took the effort to convince her.”
An unverifiable source added that given the long-standing feud between Nagarjuna’s family and the Allu family, getting Samantha Ruth Prabhu to do the item song in Allu Arjun-led Pushpa “was the chance to get even.”
Pushpa is reportedly set to have a sequel part with an item song in it, it will be interesting to see the amount Samantha asks for this time. Reports are now floating around that Samantha has already been approached for another “special song” in the sequel to Pushpa, we wonder how much she will charge!
