Even Geetha Arts Couldn't Afford This Telugu Actor

Even Geetha Arts Couldn't Afford This Telugu Actor
Over the last couple of years, Rao Ramesh has evolved as an able replacement for Prakash Raj. Like the latter, Rao Ramesh has also earned name as an actor who can get into the skin of any character, someone who can convince audience with both extremely positive roles and trademark villainy. This naturally resulted in huge demand for the actor, and the expected hike in remuneration. We have learnt that the actor hiked his pay to a level that even a banner as big as Geetha Arts couldn't afford him.

Director Parasuram, who last directed 'Srirasthu Subhamasthu' starring Allu Sirish for Geetha Arts banner, is directing his next film also for the same prestigious banner. Vijay Devarakonda is on board to play the male lead. Parasuram had approached Rao Ramesh to play hero's father character in this film, but the talented senior actor is said to have shocked him by asking Rs 4 lakhs per day fee. Feeling that Rao Ramesh's asking fee was too high, makers replaced him with Mega brother Naga Babu.

It may be recalled that Parasuram had cast Rao Ramesh in heroine's father role in Srirasthu Subhamasthu. The character received immense applause for the writer-director's impactful dialogues and the actor's heart touching performance. Hence, the director hoped to repeat him in the Devarakonda-starrer as well but the remuneration asked by Rao Ramesh reportedly annoyed both Parasuram and Allu Aravind, pursuing them to replace him with Naga Babu.
