Is Rashmika Getting Rs 2-crore Remuneration?
There have been lots of rumours over her remuneration. During the promotional interview of her Pogaru, the actress was asked whether she has hiked her remuneration to Rs 2 crore. The jovial actress denied the speculations in her style.

"I heard the news. This rumour led to Income- Tax department carrying out raids at our premises. No producer is willing to pay so much amount even if I ask them. Producers ask 'how can we afford the said amount when the hero itself is being paid so much,' she said on a lighter note, stating that the 24-year old would like to claim that she is receiving the said amount as her remuneration.
