Writers write a story, directors direct these stories and with the help of the producer, give that story a running mode, which is known as a movie, drama, series, or TV show. Making drama, TV shows, movies, or series is not a simple task to do. When that drama or movie is released, producers, writers, and the whole team earn from cinemas. This is their only source of income.
