Nayanthara was expected to be one of the selling points of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy especially in the Tamil market.
Everyone believed that she will have a prominent role as the main female lead, but Nayan had a miniscule role in the final cut of Sye Raa. In fact, Tamanna's character had better scenes and she made an impact compared to Nayan.
However, Nayanthara has been reportedly paid Rs. 5 Crore for her part while Tamanna got only Rs. 1 Crore for her efforts.
Nayanthara made sure to charge big irrespective of the screen time or her working days for Sye Raa.
She was aware of the fact that there wasn't another choice for Team Sye Raa and demanded much higher than her market price.
Producer Ram Charan was left with no other option except to pay what Nayan asked for.
Despite bagging big money Nayan has refused to do promotions for Sye Raa.
She never likes to promote her films and even Sye Raa didn't get any discount on that account.
