It certainly pays to be on top in Tollywood. The top directors, top heroes, top heroines and top character artistes get the top pay packets. Koratala Siva has become one of Tollywood’s top notch directors and gets paid accordingly.
Koratala Siva had reportedly planned a film with Ram Charan a long time ago. However, that did not materialise at that time. He then went on to direct “Sreemanthudu” and “Janatha Garage” both of which went on to become huge blockbusters. That catapulted Koratala Siva to the top league of directors in Tollywood. Now every top hero wants to do a film under his direction.
It was recently announced that Ram Charan has at last come around to doing a film with Koratala Siva. The latest buzz is that Koratala Siva is going to be charging a whopping Rs.14 crores for this project. It will be jointly made by Konidela Productions and Matinee Entertainments.
Koratala Siva is due to direct Mahesh Babu in his next film “Bharath Ane Nenu” while Ram Charan is busy with “Rangasthalam 1985”. Once these two projects are over, Ram Charan and Koratala Siva will start their next film together.
