Even as Megastar Chiranjeevi’s highly-anticipated 150th film has entered its second shooting schedule, the hunt for the film’s leading lady continues. While the names of Anushka, Nayanthara and Tamannaah have been doing the rounds for quite some time now, it seems actress Kajal Aggarwal was officially approached for the film.

However, sources have revealed that the makers are yet to decide on signing Kajal since she demanded a remuneration that was beyond their budget.

However, Kajal demanded a remuneration of a whopping `2.5 Crore and the makers are now contemplating if they should sign her or look for a more economical alternative,” said a source from the film’s unit.

Kajal, who was previously seen opposite Mahesh  Babu in Brahmotsavam, is one of the  Tollywood stars who has been most vocal on the issue of equal pay for actors and actresses. Negotiations are taking place and an official confirmation is awaited. 

Directed by VV Vinayak, the yet-untitled project is scheduled for Sankranthi.
