It's safe to say no other actor in Tamil cinema has been blessed with the tremendous growth like that of Sivakarthikeyan in the last decade. Beginning his career as a mimicry artist and stand-up comedian, the actor has come a long way to get to where he is today.

His breakthrough role in a film was as a supporting character for Dhanush in '3'. Director Aishwarya Rajinikanth spotted him on-stage and offered the role to Sivakarthikeyan. His comedy in the film was well-received and soon, he was acting as the lead actor.

SIvakarthikeyan has mentioned Dhanush as being his mentor on many occasions since he played a huge role in shaping Sivakarthikeyan's career as an actor. But, unofficial reports state that Sivakarthikeyan earns more salary than Dhanush now.

When questioned if Dhanush's relationship with the producers is affecting his salary, filmmaker, actor, and Indian journalist Chithra Lakshmanan answered that it's unrelated. An actor's salary is not determined based on their relationship with the producer, he said in a video.

Catch his explanation on why Sivakarthikeyan is allegedly earning more salary than Dhanush:

However, netizens are not entirely convinced by Chithra Lakshmanan's answer. Dhanush has been in the industry for years and has been giving hit after hit and is even acting in a Hollywood film. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments...
