Genelia and her Rs 1 crore denial

Sometimes, the news about an actresses’ refusal carries as much spice as her agreement on any issue does. Genelia is no exception to the rule. Following her smashing success in Bollywood with ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’, buzz has it that the petite actress has demanded a salary of Rs 1 Crore for her films.



To put things in perspective, it must be realized that this is no big money to seek in an industry as big as Bollywood’s, where actresses are paid over even Rs 5 crores. And Genelia, who made a forceful reentry in Bollywood with the Imran starrer, had anyway demanded upto Rs 70 lakhs for her other films, including the remake of ‘Santhosh Subramaniyam’, in Hindi.

But if it is true that producers have agreed to pay Genie, as she is fondly called, the Rs 1 crore remuneration, she would be the next South Indian actress after Nayantara and Anushka to charge the fee.

But any questions about this touchy issue was met with fierce denial by those on Genie’s camp, who said she has not been demanding more than she deserves. One only wonders who said she doesn't deserve the eight-digit salary.
