When she was booked for ‘Madrasapattinam’, Amy Jackson, if sources are to be believed, was paid Rs 5 lakh. And when director Vijay roped her in again, this time for ‘Thaandavam’, she was signed for somewhere between Rs 45 and 50 lakh.
Now for ‘I’, a film directed by Shankar with Vikram in the lead, the British actress has been reportedly paid Rs 75 lakh, a whopping amount considering that she is just one film old in Tamil cinema.
"Shankar and the producer (Aascar V Ravichandran) were thoroughly convinced with Amy’s skills and screen presence and hence they came forward to pay the huge sum," sources say.
The mega budget film hit the floors in Chennai Sunday last. With A R Rahman composing the music, ‘I’, a romantic thriller that it is, features Vikram in a ‘never seen before role’. Amy Jackson plays an international super model in this mega budget film.
