    She is so humble and down to earth. She doesn’t have a pr and a stylist. She wears very normal clothes with out ounce of make up. Thank god we have people like her in this day and age where Stars are run by their PR teams

    5 crore doesnt seem impressive when you consider prabhas was paid 25 crores and rana was paid 15.

      If someone else acted, u would have said the same thing. When the director has taken so much care about eveything, wouldn’t he extract decent acting from his actors. Anyone could have acted in this movie and still made it hit. Entire credit goes to the director.

    She deserves atleast 15 crores for Bahubali. 10 is okay. 5 is just pathetic! Anyways, love you Sweety. And congrats!
