Being a director is a very much responsible work at the time of making the film. The director is the spinal cord of a film, just like an actor/actress who is the shoulder of the film as they carry it, the director balances it. Everyone in the country knows how much the actor’s charge is per film, but no one has the idea about the directors. The director gets paid for the vision of the movie.
This the amount these famous directors in the industry take home:
