With the success of ‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’ and ‘Ala Vaikunthapuramlo’ released on Sankranti, the popularity of hot beauties Pooja Hegde and Rashmika has gone up. Currently Rashmika is romancing Nithiin in ‘Bhishma’ while stylish star Allu Arjun is getting ready to do romance in his next film to be directed by Sukumar. Similarly, Rashmika not only gave green signal to do romance with Surya in a Kollywood movie but is also listening to new scripts. On the other hand Pooja Hegde is busy acting in a film with young rebel star Prabhas under the direction of Radhakrishna Kumar and also in another movie with Akkineni Prince Akhil under the direction of Bommarillu Bhaskar.
The talk in trade circles is that an interesting star war is on between Rashmika and Pooja. This is because Trivikram is said to be once again considering the name of Pooja for the film he is making in combination with young tiger NTR. Since ‘Aravinda Sametha’ had proved a hit, Trivikram is said to be keen to follow the sentiment and give another chance to Pooja Hegde. On the other hand there are rumours that Rashmika will act opposite NTR. Pooja is under criticism for taking Rs.2 crore to romance with Mahesh Babu in ‘Maharshi’ though it was not a proper hit film. Since then Pooja is said to have reduced her remuneration to Rs.1.5 crore.
Rashmika received Rs.1.5 crore remuneration for ‘Sarileru Nekevvaru’ with Mahesh Babu. Many people are saying that Rashmika has overtaken Pooja in terms of remuneration. However, with latest blockbuster, Pooja has again raised her remuneration to Rs.2 crore. Thus with two movies, there is a fight between star heroes, between heroes’ fans and even between hot beauties.
