Vijay Devarakonda is exponentially growing into a star and his remuneration is getting hiked from film to film multi-fold. Apart from acting skills and good looks, Vijay is blessed with a unique attitude that attracted youth towards him and it is evident through the openings of his recent films.
The remuneration for his initial films was very less. He has signed Arjun Reddy for a remuneration of Rs 5 Lakhs along with a share in profits. He signed ‘Geetha Govindam’ for a remuneration of Rs 50 Lakhs right after ‘Pelli Choopulu’. The film Arjun Reddy created a distinct image for him which was a reason to worry for the makers of Geetha Govindam. Allu Aravind and Parasuram were not sure if the audience would accept him as a cool gentleman in Geetha Govindam. The success of Geetha Govindam proved their doubts wrong and made huge profits. The film is heading towards the highest collections among the medium budget films. The overseas collections of the film raised many eyebrows in the industry and the film is soon going to join the list of highest grossers.
Vijay is riding high on the success of Geetha Govindam and is currently the most sought-after actor in Tollywood. He is taking a remuneration of Rs 3 Crores for his next film NOTA which is bilingual simultaneously getting made in Telugu and Tamil languages. Even after hiking his remuneration 6 times, the producers are still lining up for his dates. If he sustains the success, he may soon join the top stars of Telugu cinema.
