Rinku Rajguru denied of getting Rs. 4 crore Bunus : Sairat Controversy
This class X student has suddenly come under the spotlight as Archi, the popular character from her debut film Sairat, which has gone on to become the highest grosser in the history of Marathi cinema. Despite all the adulation and fan mail coming her way, life hasn’t changed much at the grassroots for Rinku Rajguru.
She recently visited her hometown Akluj, in Solapur but rues not being able to spend much time with friends and family. “There were so many felicitation programmes organised for me but I relished each bit of puran poli and vangyachi bhaaji prepared by my mother.”
There were reports of her and co-star Akash Thosar having got a Rs 4 crore bunus after the film’s success but Rinku dismisses these. She says, “The reports about us being paid an additional Rs 4 crore are false. We have just been paid the money that was originally promised to us.” She adds, “I’m too young to take financial decisions, so my parents are handling that aspect. I have only bought the books for my class X studies. For me, education is as important as my film career and I want to take both seriously.”
The girl turned 15 on June 3 but didn’t celebrate her birthday. Ask her the reason and pat comes the reply, “When my state is battling a drought-like situation, I didn’t feel the need to celebrate my birthday. So, I just stayed back home.”
