Prashanth Neel is believed to be one of the highest-paid directors in the country. While we know that Shankar is paid about Rs 40 Cr and SS Rajamouli is rumoured to be paid upwards of Rs 80 Cr, how much is the other top pan-India director from south India making per movie?

In his latest interview, the 'KGF' director has given an answer. Speaking to Cinema Express, the star director said that he doesn't believe that he is the highest-paid filmmaker right now. Neel added that he doesn't think that his fee should be something that is discussed in the first place.

The 'Ugramm' maker is scheduled to wield the megaphone for Prabhas' 'Salaar' and Jr NTR's 31st film, back to back. Neel is easily among the highest-paid directors in India, much as he refuses to confess it. He must be earning far more than most of the Bollywood directors, considering that the likes of Prabhas and Jr NTR want to work with him.

In the interview, the director said that 'KGF 2' will feel fresh whenever it hits the screens by virtue of it being a period film. Starring Yash as the heroine, it has Sanjay Dutt as the antagonist. The film will likely release after August.
