We had recently heard that Manchu Vishnu has not charged a penny to work in Rowdy, which is produced by his close friends Parthasarathy and Gajendra, now versatile actor Prakash Raj follows the suit.
Prakash Raj had, in fact, increased his remuneration recently; he charges Rs 1.5 crore for a film, and we have heard that he is very particular (read strict) of prompt payments. However, producer-director Gunashekar must thank his stars and fortune for he has had a pleasant surprise from Prakash Raj, the actor has waived off his fee for the upcoming epic drama Rudramadevi!
Yes, the actor will not be charging a penny to work in the film. We are told that because Prakash’s generosity was that the actor was hugely impressed with the role that was etched for him.
A close source added, “As soon he heard his character, Prakash Raj told director that he would like to do this role without even a fee, since its a challenging role for him and would test his abundant talent.”
Prakash is reportedly done with his part of the work in the film but has still not credited the cheque to his bank account and might very well forego the same. A generous act indeed we must say!
