Tamil Directors salary; who earns more?

It is now again the time of the directors of Tamil cinema to rule the roost! It was always heroes who dominated the industry barring some decades. When producers and heroes MGR and Sivaji Ganesan were dominating the scene of the industry director Sridhar was the first one to emerge as another dominant from the industry but as a director!
Directors started get noticed from the era of director Sridhar and it was K. Balachander, who came next to Sridhar, who made the filmgoers clap their hands when a director’s name appeared on the screen. Next came Bharathiraja, Mahendran and Mani Ratnam who changed the course of moviemaking.

After this period, Tamil cinema again fell into the hands of the heroes and Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan dominated the industry for 3 decades.

It was the beginning of the millennium that Tamil directors again started having their command in the industry. And, now the directors are at their helm now.

Not only in terms of having a say in making films also they have a big popularity in the trade of the industry. Yes, they also command a big salary now. Do you know how much the top directors of Tamil cinema command as salary now?
