Till yesterday it was touted that Balayya would romance Bollywood siren Bipasha in the steamy item number in Legend and that Bips has apparently quoted a jaw dropping amount [about Rs. 1.25 crore]. Now, the latest to be heard is that Mirchi fame Hamsanandini has snatched this juicy deal. But why did Legend makers prefer Hamsanandini to Bipasha?
Well going into the story, Legend team wanted the dates of Bipasha on 3rd, 4th and 5th of March for they have the audio launch on 7th. But Bipasha agreed to allot on the 5th, 6th and 7th which would clash with the audio launch date. Keeping in view of this key point and to keep up their word, the makers 14 Reels Entertainment and Varahi Chalachitra decided to rope in Hamsanandini for this item number composed by DSP. While Hamsanandini is touted to have charged just around Rs. 25-30 lakhs, the makers have supposedly made a better deal here.
Moreover, with Balayya in the song, the item girl really doesn’t matter much! What say fans?
