In the world of films, no publicity is bad publicity and nothing sells better than controversy. The latest example to this adage is actress Taapsee, who after a promising debut with Aadukalam, failed to build on it with films that were disastrous at the BO.
However, the recent spat between actors Mahat Raghavendra and Manchu Manoj on account of the actress at a private party in the city has now made her the go-to girl for advertisers. Taapsee has been reported to have been dating both these actors at some point and it is alleged that is this factor that resulted in the fist fight that led Mahat to lodge a complaint against Manoj.
Recently, a Chennai-based textile and jewellery group had approached the actress to be their brand ambassador to build on the actress’s increase in exposure due to the Mahat-Manchu episode. We hear that the actress had asked for cool Rs 1 crore (almost 5 times her previous brand value) as her remuneration and the group surprisingly agreed. Now, we hear that the actress has decided to cash in on this new-found demand.
Taapsee is currently playing the second lead in Vishnu Vardhan’s next film which stars Ajith and Nayanthara in the lead.
