There have been more problems when it comes to lyricists in Tamil Cinema. They’re never honored at least during the occasion of audio launches. But this time Yuga Bharathi came up with a shocking statement that producers aren’t paying lyric writers for their job.
It was during the audio launch of ‘Ariyaan’ that witnessed coming together of Dharani, T P Gajendran, Tarun Gopi, Praveen Kanth, actors Alex, lyricists Snegan and Yuga Bharathi…
Addressing the crowd for this occasion, he said “until producers want to get their jobs done, they keep calling us over the phones. But later as their work is done, they switch off their phones and never pay us…”
Later lyricist Sneghan took over the mike and said, “Yes, it’s true that many producers are so pathetic with such deed. Even assistant directors aren’t getting paid half the amount they were actually assigned in the beginning.”
