Vikas Bahl’s upcoming movie Deadly has been in news for quite some time. While Amitabh Bachchan’s name remained a constant, the actress kept changing. The movie was initially offered to Katrina Kaif and after her declining it, the makers wanted Kriti Sanon to step in for the main female lead’s role. But now, due to Kriti’s busy schedule, she has rejected the project and now, South Rashmika Mandanna has been roped in for the film.
Official announcement is yet to be made, Deadly will mostly be Rashmika’s second Bollywood movie , after Mission Majnu which was announced earlier this week. And a source tells us that the actress has been paid handsomely for Deadly. “Ekta wanted a prominent face to star in the film. Vikas offered it to Rashmika who liked the script. But she charges a whopping amount down South. Despite being a newcomer in Bollywood, she is being paid to the tune of Rs 5-6 crore for this film alone. The makers are happy with the decision and have signed her for the film.”
