Top 10 : Tamil Actress Salary



The cine field is always biased and discriminating with regard to the remuneration paid for the heroines. This happens for more decades and this is not a new practice for the producers to do so. Yet, there is always a tough competition among the heroines to force their might to reap the top most salary. Film industry cites the reason for this as the early exit of the heroines as new ones arrive at intermittent frequency. More so ever, the heroines are at the disposal of the hero as they only finalize the hero, irrespective of the script and the director's insistence. While the heroes receive whooping salary for their projects, there is an interesting account of the toppers among the inferior sex artists. The salary is fixed by the director and the producer on the basis of the craze among the audience, the freewill of the heroines to be most flexible for the entire period of the shooting. Here's a list of top ten actresses made on the salary they receive for their presence in the movies.


10) Anjali



The Telugu migrant to Kollywood, this actress has the potential to inculcate a new direction to the actresses. Anjali started appearing before the camera as a model before making appearances in low budget Tollywood movies. She made a silent revolution through Vasantha Balan's Angadi Theru for which she was suitably rewarded with Filmfare Best Debut actress. From then she is very choosy about the movies and is rarely on any sort of controversy. Her popularity gained with the latest hit of Mangatha. Her other films include Katradhu Tamil with Jeeva, Rettai Chuzhi, a cameo appearance in Kho, the latest Engeyum Eppothum. She is booked for the ensuing Thambi Vettothi Sundaram and Aravaan and Maharaja.
She draws the pay package of Rs 30 lakhs.


Current Salary: 30 Lakhs


9) Tapasee




Another Punajbi dhaba after Simran, this lady is slowly gaining the momentum since she could not leave her interest on her software profession. Her stint as a model for Panataloon range of products made the difference in her which took her to the Tollywood for the debut in movies. However the rich dividend was paid to her for her performance in Vettrrimaran's Aadukalam opposite Dhanush, with National award. Within short span of time she could enter into the Mollywood too and that too with the star hero Mammooty. The latest movie with her on the screen is Vandhan Vendran pairing with Jeeva, which is making some good news for her. Moreover she is on the shortlisted heroines for Vijay's upcoming movies and it is shocking to know that she declined an offer to pair with Surya. Her current salary is Rs 30 lakhs which sounds less but it may be hiked at any time.

5) Amala Paul



The Malabar beauty has a good chunk of prospects in the tinsel world and at the age of 20 she is making drastic efforts to secure a pride of place. When her debut was made through the controversial Sindu Samaveli more eye brows raised towards her. But her role in Prabu Solomon's Mynaa proved that she is a capable person.

The recent Deiva Thirumagal has once again proved the point though her earlier movie Vikadakavi made an utter flop. The future seems to be bright for her with Vettai from Lingusamy, Muppozhuthum En Karppanaigal with Atharva. She has won awards for her performance in Mynaa and also for new actress category.

Cute and slim figure in the southern region was originally a supporting heroine during the days of Simran. She made her appearance in Tamil movies from Jodi but shot into fame after her thumping performance in Aamir's Mounam Pesiyathe opposite Surya. This film fetched her the prestigious Filmfare Award 2002 meant for the Best Female Debut actress.

2) Anushka



This lady who hails from the Telugu region has come in a smashing manner with her debut in 2005. She has so far played a prominent role with second level top heroes of Kollywood. This is a great back up at her age of 20 that she has a promising future if fortune smiles at her. A major drawback for her is her height which may irk some heroes to team up with her. This was very apparent in Vettaikaran as Vijay has to manage her during the duet songs. And this was obvious in Vaanam where STR could not match the difference. Though she has played in limited number of movies in Tamil ever since her debut in Sundar C's Rendu, her appearances in Telugu have been remarkable, especially Arunthathi. Currently she is doing her makes for the ensuing films ' Irandam Ulagam from Selvaragavan and Vada Chennai from Vettrimaran. Another news is that she is on the cards for pick to pair with Kamal in his Viswaroopam. Hence Anushka is on the making of a popular actress after the successful run of Singham. Her current remuneration is Rs 1 crore which the producers are half hearted to pay.


Current Salary: 1 Crore


1) Ileana D' Cruz



This lady from the tinsel world of Bollywood has straightaway hit the field with her chubby look and sportive features. So far she has acted in 3 tamil movies- Kedi, Raja Vesham and Shakthi and still the most sought after star by the directors and the heroes in Kollywood. She has been in the field since 2006 making her debut in Telugu with Devadasu. Prior to that she had been involved in the profession of modeling and has gained popularity all over.

Living away from any sort of controversy, the 24 year old angelic physique has gained much popularity in the South Indian movie world. Her presence in Tollywood has made the rich dividends to the heroes there and the producers. Her charm and simple beauty have acclaimed more fans and she is the dream angel for many youths. She has won two filmfare awards as on date. Currently she has given her body trials to K Shankar for his Nanban, probably opposite Vijay. Her current remuneration is Rs 1.5 crore which the producers are too willing to shell out just because she is adored by the fans.


Current Salary: 1.5 Crore


Conclusion



This account indicates that the actresses in Kollywood are shuffling their fortunes on timely aspects. If the situation demanded they would become flexible and come over the projects to their wish. This is not a permanent pay package but the fluctuation will come from the side of producers who are the gamblers with these horses. The green should win the prize for the producers and the beauty will return more currency to their chest. Above all the utmost cooperation and the blessings of the heroes alone can instill hope on these heroines. The talk of male chauvinism may sound good on the screens but not on the real life.

True, i was wondering how come Illeana's pay is higher than Trisha and Anushka who are way better actress. Even Tamannah's market seems to have dropped now while she used to be at a peak at one time LOL

I guess Anushka and Ileana do count 'cause they are doing tamil movies currently. And I guess they are able to demand the same as they do in telugu. Personally, I love both of them LOL
 
 
Yet I repeat, I do pity the state of our heroines. It's just that I feel that heroines have to put more effort to sustain in the industry and enhance their careers, which is otherwise limited.

Thanks daa Ravi...
 
Wow, so surely there is a hugeee gap in how much the actors get paid in comparison to the actresses, which is surely a thing to worry about!
 
Regardless of this, I guess the salary does not pertain to tamil Cinema, since many of them do act in other South Indian Cinema as well as Hindi.. so like Vidya said, most properly the actresses would consider their popularity in other states as well while demanding a certain amount Tongue...

Heroes are paid a lot because most of the audience go to watch movie based on the actors that's why heroes are paid a lot than the heroines Wink


If the heroines or heroes give a good films then only their salary will be increased Wink
