This might come as a surprise to you but according to one information, there are a total of nearly two thousand registered lyricists in the Telugu Film Industry. Given the number of films that get made and the demand for only a certain set of songwriters, you can imagine what kind of opportunities the rest would have.
Yet, they also have a season when they make the most of it. We are talking about the election season when a lot of private songs are composed. Normally it is the political parties and the contesting candidates who get such stuff done but now a new trend is being noticed which is working for the lyricists.
Not just MLAs and MPs, even those business people who are close to these politicos, they are also getting albums recorded and gifting them. That way, lyricists are in full demand. Obviously budgets don’t work like movie range but still there is decent money. Even top league lyricists to others are working on these assignments.
