Top Tollywood Directors Get Over 20 Crore
Until now, the media and film industry veterans have complained about rising production costs due to the high salaries of top heroes.
Little money is spent on writing and manufacturing, but more money is eaten by the heroes in the form of remuneration. Now the best directors are joining the heroes.
Rajamouli, Sukumar, Koratala Siva and Trivikram Srinivas are currently the greatest directors in Tollywood.
While Rajamouli’s compensation is higher than that of many leading heroes in India, which is said to be in the order of Rs 75 crore (excluding profit sharing), the other three directors have also increased their compensation.
Sukumar now wins compensation of Rs 20 crore for “Pushpa” from Allu Arjun. Trivikram Srinivas gets anywhere in the range of Rs 20 to 25 Crore.
Koratala Siva charged Rs 18-20 Crore as compensation.
Other top managers’ leagues get Rs 10 to 15 crore. The remuneration of directors is now at the level of the best heroes.
