National Award winning actress Keerthy Suresh was recently seen in the film Annaatthe, which was dubbed as Peddanna in Telugu. Keerthy played a supporting character as Superstar Rajinikanth’s sister in this movie. She got a pivotal role in the flick though it is a side character. If the ongoing buzz in Kollywood is anything to go by, she was paid a whopping remuneration of Rs. 2 crores for this film.
Apparently, this is her career-highest remuneration. Keerthy won a National Award in 2019 for her performance in the movie Mahanati. But she had to wait for more than a year to hike her payment. It is heard that she is charging a similar amount for her upcoming projects as well.
Annaatthe was made on a budget of Rs. 180 crores at the box office. Though it failed to do well in Telugu, the collections were very high for the Tamil version. It collected a gross of more than Rs. 100 crores within three days of its release. Directed by Siva, Annaatthe features Nayanthara as the female lead alongside Rajinikanth.
Meanwhile, Keerthy is currently acting as Megastar Chiranjeevi’s sister in Bhola Shankar. She is playing the female lead in Superstar Mahesh Babu’s Sarkaru Vaari Paata and Nani’s Dasara. It is reported that the actress has hiked her remuneration for all these big projects. On the whole, Keerthy has finally realized to earn well when in stardom and doing the same with her upcoming films.
