As excitement built up for the movie “Kushi,” a music event organized by the film’s team added to the buzz. However, rumors started swirling about the movie, especially about how much the cast and director Shiva Nirvana were getting paid.
One big rumor was about the payment amounts: reportedly, Vijay was getting Rs. 23 crores, Samantha Rs. 4.5 crores, and Shiva Nirvana Rs. 12 crores.
But Shiva Nirvana quickly addressed these rumors in an interview, saying the reported numbers were not true. He was surprised by the news and even his friends asked him about it.
