An interesting rumour is doing rounds in film circles at the moment. It's about comedy King Brahmanandam who demands a hefty pay cheque at par with his craze. Apparently writer Kona Venkat and director Sriwaas have roped in Brahmanandam for a comedy role in Balakrishna's movie "Dictator". As this happens to be 99th movie of Natasimha, they are leaving no stone big to make it a happening blockbuster. For that reason Brahmi was on board. However the comedy king demanded nearly 1 crore for 30 days of call-sheets and that has hurt the makers, say sources. Unable to fulfil his demand, they have shown him doors. This rumour is a hot topic at the moment.
