Normally, a top hero gets not less than Rs.5-7 crore for each film and the director gets an equal amount or some times double the hero’s remuneration. Heroines also, who do not want to be left behind in this race have been increasing their remuneration with each successful film. Earlier, it was Trisha and Ileana, who were top paid heroines in the industry. As they gradually faded away Nayanatara and Anushka stands as the highest paid heroines in the industry now. They both have crossed Rs.1 crore mark long ago and currently clings at Rs.2 crore mark.
