A couple of days back, popular producer Boney Kapoor released a press note rubbishing the rumors that his daughter Janhvi Kapoor is ignoring South film offers as she is not interested to get down the South in the very early stages of her career. But the situations seems contrary to whatever Boney has said to the media.
According to the sources, a couple of producers who showed interest in roping Janhvi on board has a different story to tell.
Apparently, Janhvi has been approached by Charmme to play the female lead role in Vijay Deverakonda's upcoming film Fighter, which is being directed by Puri Jagannath. The Dhadak actress quoted Rs. 4 crores as remuneration excluding GST. She charged extra for her flights, accommodation in a 7-star hotel and expenses of her personal staff. All this ends up the pay at Rs. 5 crores. Charmme is trying to negotiate with Janhvi to agree on the whole package at Rs. 2.5 crores but the latter is in no mood to do so.
Another producer is also said to have approached Janhvi but she is said to have put too many conditions and the producer had to call off his plan to introduce her in Telugu.
To be honest, Janhvi is just one film old and her demands are no less than a star actress like Deepika Padukone. If she is very much keen on doing South films, she would focus on content rather than the remuneration. Since the rumors already started floating in the media, Boney Kapoor tried to control the damage by sending the press note that his daughter is keen on doing South films. They must realize that it can only happen when they cut down their demands.
