Actor Surya is doubtless one of the most bankable stars in Tamil cinema, thanks to his films that vary from one another and clean scripts that largely entertain family audience. Now that the actor is working on the biggest project of his career, Maattrraan, rumor mills have it that he is the highest paid star in the Tamil film industry!
Media reports have it that the actor was paid a whooping 12 crore for Maattrraan, sans the remuneration for the Telugu rights of the film making it 20 crore plus! However sources close to the actor haven’t commented about this and we can’t be sure of how much of it is true and how much of it is a figment of rumor mills’ imagination.
Meanwhile, Subash Chandra Bose has reportedly expressed to a publication that a film with Surya for their banner will go on floors come February 2013.
