Voice actor, actress and actress are traditionally considered to be the most expensive profession to be a part of.
In India, however, many voice actors and actresses are being offered to play male lead roles.
The Indian Voice Academy, an industry body, has released an infographic on the top 10 most expensive jobs in India and lists the top 5 most demanding roles in the industry.
The infographic, which is titled ‘Top 10 Most demanding jobs in the Indian Voice Actor industry’, includes roles such as leading actors in movies and television shows, actors in the field of digital animation, and voice actors for music videos.
The infographic lists the most demanding jobs by age and gender, but also highlights some other interesting statistics such as the number of male voice actors in India, the most common types of voice actors, and the average salary for female voice actors.
According to the infographic, voice actors are paid a salary of Rs. 15,000-18,000 per month, which means that they would have to make around Rs. 3,200-4,000 for a typical day.
However, the average salaries for male and female voice directors are about Rs. 10,000 and Rs. 5,000 respectively.
This is due to the fact that male voice directors tend to be more experienced and know-how.
Female voice directors, on the other hand, are less experienced and generally have less experience and have a lower salary.
While the top five most demanding voice actors tend to earn more than Rs. 25,000, the top ten most demanding female voice actresses average Rs. 18,000.
The number of female voice acting jobs in 2017 was 10,879, with a median salary of about Rs 3.7 lakh per month.
The top 10 least demanding roles, meanwhile, were: voice actor for a film, actress in a film or television show, music video, voice actor in a video game or video game music video for a game, voice actress in an audio film or music video and voice actress for a video.
