It is well-known that top actors in South India are starring in Mahanati. The movie has the likes of Keerthi Suresh, Samantha, Vijay Devarakonda, Mohan Babu, and Dulquer Salman.
It is normal for anyone to expect the Samantha will be the highest paid actor in the cast. However, the interesting news is that Mohan Babu charged more than Samantha. The latest buzz indicates that Mohan Babu charged over 75 lakhs for this movie.
The reason for this may be the close relationship between the producer Ashwini Dutt and Mohan Babu. The movie is being made on a big scale with authentic vibe written all over it.
Ashwini Dutt’s son in law Nag Ashwin is directing this biopic. The movie was initially slated for release on May 9th, but the movie may be postponed further as CGI works are taking longer than expected.
