Obtaining star writer status is not an ordinary thing,as one needs to put his more than 100% efforts. Lot of dedication and creative efforts will take you to the place you deserve. Earlier, Trivikram Srinivas was the first writer to touch 1 crore mark,and when he turned director full time,no other writer seem to have reached that top position.
Earlier senior writers Parucuri Brothers have ruled Tollywood with outstanding hits in their through out their career. But now that top slot has been taken over by another ace writer Kona Venkat in Tollywood. He is now considered as the most expensive writer.
During one of his interviews, Kona mentioned that he won’t take less than 1 cr for a film. But now, he seems to have found someone who is much expensive than him. Of course, this writer is based at Bollywood. He is none other than the famous novelist Chetan Bhagat whose books are getting converted into films regularly.
Soon, Chetan’s new book ‘Half Girlfriend’ is becoming a film and as part of the deal, sources say the producers Balaji Movies are offering him a whopping Five crores as remuneration along with 33% of the film’s profits. Well, the only way Kona can beat this guy is by entering into Bollywood. Let us wish that happens soon.
