Even after making an impressive debut with Ala Ela, the dusky Gujarati starlet Hebah Patel couldn't find Tollywood running behind her for her dates. But all it took for this petite beauty to turn the tables was just one film, Sukumar's Kumari 21F. The film became a blockbuster and made Hebah a sought after actress in Tollywood overnight.
Hebah's uninhibited portrayal of a bold character in the film sent signals to Tollywood makers, who are now making a beeline behind her to cash in on her craze among the young audiences. As per the latest buzz, Hebah, who charged in 6 digits for Kumari, has already turned quite expensive.
Apparently, Hebah is demanding 50 lakhs per film and surprisingly, even the producers are ready to shell out such a fat paycheck. Currently, the young beauty has two projects in hand, the Vishnu-Raj Tarun's multi-starrer and Nikhil-VI Anand's fantasy thriller.
If both the films end up as hits, no doubt that Hebah will touch the 75 lakhs figure within this year.
