On one side you will hear that there is a massive dearth for talented writers in the industry and fresh creative juices are not flowing in. While that may be true, there is also another hard truth which might be discouraging many talented individuals to choose this profession. Well, it has to do with livelihood.
Recently the noted actor Posani Krishnamurali revealed how the legendary writer Atreya was in a miserable condition during the last stage of his life and how that transformed his thoughts to become an actor. Even the writers of today would be facing the same challenge down the line.
For only those who are sitting in writing field, it is very tough. Those who can expand their services such as setting up projects, liaising with stars like Kona Venkat, Vakkantham Vamsi can sustain. For that matter, Vamsi has become a director also while Kona has become a producer. For their range it is okay but for writers like Sai Madhav Burra, if they cannot get into the next level it would not be easy.
