Heroism matters a lot in South India films, where the success of a film is mostly decided by the power of the hero. Though the power and popularity of senior actresses contribute a lot to the success, and the veteran heroines hardly get recognition for it. The actresses’ remunerations are also very less when compared to that of actors. Yet, there is always a tough competition among the senior heroines to reap the top most salary.
If the filmmakers planned to rope in senior actresses in their films, then the main thing to come in mind is to fix up remuneration for a particular artist, and there is a certain yardstick to measure that. This applies more to the heroines who tend to have a very varying graph of movies and experience.
