Sridevi undoubtedly has been one of the biggest superstars in the country. The late actress was also said to be one of the highest-paid starlets of her time. However, you would not believe the price she was paid for her first Tamil film (as a lead) with superstars Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan.

The Mom actress was paid a meager amount of only Rs 5000 to be a part of Moondru Mudichu, a Tamil romantic thriller. The film was directed and written by K Balachander. This was the actress’ first leading role as an adult while she was only 13!

However, Sridevi’s fee for her first film is nothing compared to Janhvi Kapoor’s Telugu debut, Devara, which stars Jr NTR. If a report in Siasat is believed, then the Mili actress is charging a whopping 3.5 crore for her South debut. Guess how much difference it is from Sridevi’s debut fee?

Well, to save you from doing all the math, Janhvi’s South debut fee for her Telugu film Devara is a staggering 6,99,900% more than what her mom was paid years ago! Interestingly, Janhvi Kapoor’s Hindi debut was also much, much higher than Sridevi’s fee for Moondru Mudichu!

A film enthusiast, ‘bestofbollywoodwithrahulingh,’ shared Sridevi’s picture from the Solva Sawan sets.

Janhvi Kapoor’s Fee For Hindi Debut Dhadak

While Janhvi Kapoor was paid 60 lakh for her Hindi debut film Dhadak, it was almost 1,19,900% higher than Sridevi’s fee for Balachander’s Tamil flick. While Janhvi made her Hindi debut with Dhadak, Sridevi, in 1975, made her Hindi debut with Julie, where she played a young girl. Her proper debut came in 1979 with Solva Saawan, which tanked at the Box Office.
