Simbu :

Reports about his rate have been ambiguous. Is it 1 crore? Some say he was paid only less than 1 crore for his Thotti Jaya but, after the movie ran well, he was paid some additional amount. His papa T Rajendar burnt his fingers severely by Simbu’s Pongal release Saravana. The guy is now purely banking on Vallavan, of which he himself is the director. For his next flick he is said to have received an advance of 50 lakhs from Lakshmi Movie Makers and searching for a good director.
Dhanush :

This small and puny TNT started with a bang with three continuous hits. His rate touched 3 crores but then, all came tumbling down with a series of flops. For his latest flick Pudhupaettai he was paid 75 lakhs and for Thiruvilaiyaadal, 90 lakhs. Now everything will depend upon the hits he will manage to pull out. Otherwise, he has to remain satisfied with the status Son-in-law of the Superstar.
Actors who are paid one crore or less come in the second line heroes.
Seran :

Imagine a director with no hero looks to boot turning a hero and getting paid one crore! Well, that is Seran. He has a lot of stuff and knows the pulse of the moviegoer. His latest flick, Thavamaai Thavamirundhu has been a roaring success and producers are queuing up at Serans'. But the guy is planning to produce and direct his own movie rather than acting for others.
Arjun :

This action king gets around 75 lakhs per film. And, the producers willingly pay him that money because his movies dubbed in Telugu do good business. Even his latest release Madarasi was dubbed in Telugu as Sivakasi. But the result is same as in tamil – miserable flop. One hit – will put this guy at top again, they say.
Sarath Kumar
Sarath Kumar :

This Supreme Star, as Sarath Kumar would like to call himself, gets around one crore. If the story is good, and there is a top heroine, he would work for ninety lakhs. Sarath enjoys a moderate market in upcountry areas and the producers don't grudge the money they pay him.
Arya :

He is a sweet rowdy among teeny boppers and college girls. Arindhum Ariyamalum shot this guy to fame and expectations rised. Alas, his next films Oru Kallooriyin Kadhai and Kalabakkadhalan bombed miserably at the box-office. If it had been a hit, his rate would have shot up to one crore. But again, Pattiyal has put this guy at top. But the guy who is cautious, is said to have received only 48 lakhs for his next film Auto, in which he pairs with Pooja.
