No heroine would refuse or reject a golden opportunity to romance Mega Star Chiranjeevi. However, the scene got reversed for Chiranjeevi's upcoming entertainer Acharya being directed by Koratala Siva.
The makers first contacted Chennai Beauty Trisha Krishnan but she rejected the offer opting out citing creative differences. Sources say the makers tried to rope in Leggy Lasso Anushka Shetty even before they contacted Trisha. However, she is said to have rejected the offer.
Inside talk is there is no importance to the female lead in Acharya. Not only the duration is less but also many scenes do not have dialogues. Anushka rejected the offer due to the inconsequential role. Now Kajal is doing the same role for which she is getting a whopping Rs 1.5crs.
Chiranjeevi is playing a dual role and Ram Charan is playing a special role in the film which features Rashmika Mandanna opposite him. The film revolves around scams and misuse of temple funds in the endowments department.
