Samantha Akkineni faced a lot of backlashes when the trailer of The Family Man 2 was released. The Tollywood superstar who is usually quite active on social media kept her mum during the controversy and in the end has emerged as a winner. Her work as Raji in the series has received a high appreciation.
Samantha Akkineni will reportedly be starring in big budget Bollywood movies next and will receive more remuneration than Rashmika Mandanna.
Since this also marks the entry of the Oh! Baby actress in the Hindi film industry, it can be truly said that Sam has managed to make a sensational entry in Bollywood.
She was offered a whopping remuneration in between Rs 2 crore and Rs 3 crore for The Family Man 2 which is quite huge considering the length of her role in the series. Coming to Rashmika Mandanna, the actress has already made a place of herself in the hearts of Bollywood lovers as her “Top Tucker” video with Badshah did fairly well.
She also has two Bollywood movies in her kitty-“Mission Majnu” with Sidharth Malhotra and “Goodbye” with Amitabh Bachchan. The heart crush of India charges around Rs 3 crore to Rs 4 crore for a movie. While Rashoo is getting a good chance of working with big stars like Sid and Big B, these are not big-budget or big banner movies.
On the other hand, a buzz says that Samantha Akkineni has been approached by big banners from Bollywood to star in their upcoming ventures. Reportedly, the diva will receive somewhere around Rs 5 crore for each project which will be more than the remuneration received by Rashmika to date.
Samantha is one of the fittest South Indian divas and recently shared that she did all the action scenes in The Family Man 2. The BTS shows Sam training under the direction of stunt master Yannick Ben.
In her message accompanying the post, the Telugu diva penned, “A special special thankyouuuu to my person @yannickben for training me to do all of my own stunts (yes all of them ).. for pushing me to give it my all even when every part of my body ached (thanks for the pain killers by the way ) .. I have a solid fear of heights but I jumped off that building only because I knew you had my back .. lots and lots of love @yannickben #familymanseason2.”
