Here goes an exclusive statement from the closer sources of these bigwigs of Kodambakkam. It seems that these main league of filmmakers get paid a big sum for wielding megaphones.
Previously, Shankar was paid Rs.2Cores for his ‘Boys’ and later hiked his remuneration with ‘Anniyan’. But with his magnum opus ‘Sivaji – The Boss’, the director reached a great start of getting paid Rs.4 Crores. And now, with his yet another big project ‘Endhiran – The Robot’, the director has gradually increased his rate to Rs. 9Crores.
Appo! K. Balachandar and Bharathiraja demanding 1Crore for each in ‘Rettaisuzhi’ is worth it.
Nonetheless, A.R. Murugadoss is worth getting paid Rs.7Crores as his ‘Ghajini’ and all his previous films have taken Tamil Cinema to the next level.
