Mohan Lal Shocks Janatha Garage Makers!: When Mythri Movie Makers, the producers of NTR’s Janatha Garage, amounts that veteran Malayalam star Mohanlal will be playing a crucial role in the film, fans and even normal moviegoers were thrilled to see the NTR-Mohanlal combo on screen.
But now, Mythri Movie Makers producers themselves are in a big shock. Prior to Mohanlal’s entry in Janatha Garage, the national award winning actor was reportedly offered Rs. 1.5 crores and the film’s Malayalam rights as his renumeration.
Apparently, the producers thought that the film won’t fetch more than 1.5 crores for the Malayalam distribution rights. Mohanlal later shocked the producers by selling the Malayalam rights for close to 4.5 crores. This leaves the actor with a cool 5.5 crores in his pocket.
Mohanlal is the biggest superstar in Mollywood, and he has the credit of scoring the all-time Malayalam industry hit, Drishyam, and commands an unbeatable box-office charisma. Looks like the makers at Mythri Movie Makers didn’t do their research thoroughly.
