Ananya Panday turned down numerous telugu movies at the time, including ones like #NTR30, because she wanted to wait for the outcome of Liger. She intends to claim around 4 crores in compensation as her pay when Liger achieves great box office success. The youthful beauty, however, believed that she would be content with a salary of 1.5 to 2 crores given the failure of the movie. However, the telugu film business takes a different approach to evaluating performers and actresses based on their likelihood of success.
The movies that were originally given to ananya are no longer in the running following the failure of #Liger. kiara advani and rashmika mandanna have both been offered #NTR30, and negotiations have also taken place with Kriti Sanon. All of those famous heroines have recently enjoyed significant commercial success. Unhappy by this, ananya allegedly resolved to concentrate entirely on Bollywood. Before the prabhas starrer's release, many major telugu films were given to saaho beauty Shraddha Kapoor as well. However, once the production failed to perform well with audiences, no opportunities came her way.
