You may find this hard to believe but then there are those writers in Tollywood who manage to take home a whopping 1 crore per project. The list comprises of names such as Kona Venkat, Vakkantham Vamsi but then the story doesn’t end with writing a story and submitting it to the makers.
There is a lot which goes in the background for the writers. The reason why they are given such huge bucks is because they have to make things happen and ensure the project gets materialized. They must be able to convince a star hero and they should also set the right director and producer.
From thereon, they need to coordinate between the three and bring them to a common point of understanding. The story should be prepared in such a way that the star’s image, body language and social acceptance is taken into full consideration. There are also times when certain stories have the risk of getting leaked so these star writers need to ensure everything happens in tight wraps. Only then does that fat amount reaches them. Like they say, no pain no gain!
