Acting is a profession which demands extreme passion and hard work. But at the same time, the incredible fame and money make it one of the most sought after professions among the youth.
The actors have various income sources other than the movies, including the stage shows, brand endorsements, television shows etc. But, it is the huge remuneration of the actors which distances them from the small-time film-makers and producers.
When it comes to the Malayalam cinema, Mohanlal, the complete actor still remains as the highest-paid actor in the industry.
