Not only actors but even star directors take huge remunerations in the Telugu film industry. It is a known fact that SS Rajamouli is the highest-paid director of Tollywood. Now, Sukumar secured second place on the list. He beat the likes of Trivikram and Koratala Siva to claim this spot. It seems that Sukumar is receiving a paycheck of Rs. 22 crores for his next film Pushpa.
Earlier, Trivikram used to be the second-highest-paid director of Tollywood. Now, Sukumar beat him in that aspect. Pushpa is a pan-Indian film that is being made on a heavy budget. Due to the big scale of the film, we hear that Sukumar is getting this whopping remuneration. Apparently, Koratala Siva is also getting paid around Rs. 20 crores for his next film Acharya.
Pushpa features Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles. Devi Sri Prasad is composing the music of it. Mythri Movie Makers is bankrolling the project.
