Sreeleela debuted in Telugu with Pelli SandaD and later was cast opposite Ravi Teja in Dhamaka. Both films did decently well, and Sreeleela was more or less an overnight sensation.
Though she debuted in Kannada with a film titled Kiss, she is now getting plum offers in the Telugu industry mainly due to her amazing dancing skills.
Sreeleela is being cast opposite big stars like Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan, Vijay Deverakonda, Ram Pothineni, and others. She is also doing Balakrishna’s NBK108 in the direction of Anil Ravipudi. Her diary is full for the next two years.
If reports are to be believed, she is charging around Rs. 75 Lakhs for the Balakrishna film. For full-fledged roles, Sreeleela is demanding Rs 2 crore, and the best part is that her producers are willing to pay her the asking price. They have no qualms about paying such exorbitant amount as fees as they believe she can bring a certain number of people to the theaters.
There is a proverb that is quite relevant in the film industry, “Make Hay While The Sun Is Shining,” and it looks like Sreeleela firmly believes in this proverb.
