Has Anirudh become India’s highest-paid music director?

Anirudh Ravichander

Anirudh Ravichander has grown into a big star and a star technician. His music has played an important role in the massive success of films. Anirudh Ravichander delivers at least one viral song in a film and elevates the narrative with his riveting background score.


Rajinikanth’s “Jailer” is the most recent example. The song “Kaavalaa” was instrumental in getting the film hype. His background score in the film is on altogether different level.

The Chennai-based music composer scored blockbusters in both his native Tamil film industry and the Telugu film industry. He is now making his Bollywood debut in Shah Rukh Khan’s “Jawan.”

According to the latest buzz, Anirudh, who will provide music for NTR’s upcoming “Devara,” turned down a couple of big Telugu films because he doesn’t have enough time on his hands.

His current popularity and success are reminiscent of AR Rahman’s popularity in the 1990s and early 2000s. Rahman’s popularity and salary have now been surpassed by Anirudh Ravichander. The young composer is said to be taking Rs 8 – 10 crore per film as his paycheck. Thus, he became India’s highest-paid music composer.
