Despite being born into a film family, Mani Ratnam did not develop any interest in films when he was young. Upon completion of his post graduation in management, he started his career as a consultant. He entered the film industry through the 1983 Kannada film, Pallavi Anu Pallavi. The failure of his subsequent films would mean that he was left with fewer offers. However, his fifth directorial outing, Mouna Ragam (1986), established him as a leading filmmaker in Tamil cinema. He was the director of the critically acclaimed, national award-winning movies Nayakan (1987) and Anjali (1990), both of which qualified as India's official entry for The Academy Awards.
The film is loosely based on the Hindu epic Ramayana; its narrative occurs over 14 days when a revolutionist named Veera, who lives in a forest, kidnaps a policeman's wife to avenge his sister's death. The Tamil version received positive reviews from the critics compared to its other versions. The New York Times called the movie a "critics' pick". However, the reviewers of the Hindi version panned the film; Rajeev Masand said it was "a crushing bore of a film, a disappointment on virtually every count" The Tamil version was declared a box office success.

Jha made her acting debut in 2009 with Bollywood the film 3 Idiots, in which she had a minor role of a college student featuring in the song "All Is Well!" She was not an actor by profession then and left for Dubai as she was on campus, placed by a construction company there. After her Malayalam debut Jha did two Telugu films, namely Kalachakram and Parvathi, which did not release and were shelved. Disappointed by the projects getting shelved, Jha left for Dubai and just when she decided to not indulge in this futility, she was offered two movies in two different languages namely, Nimbe Huli and Ramachari in Kannada and Telugu respectively. Jha was not satisfied with the overall success of both the films owing to the delay in the release dates.
Despite her previous film Nimbe Huli having a delayed release as well as various controversies associated with the same, Jha was offered three movies in the same year, namely Priyathama Neevachata Kushalama, Chinna Cinema, and Eduruleni Alexander. She played diversely different characters of a college girl, the younger version of an old woman and the love interest of a police officer respectively. Thus, she suddenly rose to a place where she started getting public appearances and events regularly. However, in the movie Priyathama Neevachata Kushalama, directed by Trinadh Rao Nakkina and starring opposite Varun Sandesh, Jha was removed from the posters owing to not reciprocating the advances by Sandesh. Jha was way too strong and quoted to The Times of India that she will not let anything pull her down.
Some controversies surrounded Jha. The director of Nimbe Huli complained to the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce about Jha before release of the film. As it was stated by her in one of her interviews to Times of India, these controversies stopped her from taking up more assignments in Kannada Film Industry. Reportedly she made an allegation stating she wasn't treated professionally during the filming of the movie, to one of her interviewers from The Times of India.
Also, she alleged that the co-actor Varun Sandesh indecently behaved with her during the filming of the movie Priyathama Neevachata Kushalama. She lamented that he removed her from the posters of the movie on not being reciprocated.

Universities hire lecturers based on their careers, which they continue to pursue despite teaching in a university. This means that few (or barely any) lecturers are ever full-time teachers in the university. Their teaching hours vary depending on their schedule, which means they are part-time lecturers and get paid less than those who teach full-time.
Most professors work full-time in the university; newer professors will be monitored for their performance, while older professors who have proven their skill in their field may be given tenure. Also, aside from teaching, professors have the job of doing research in their field that can further their specialization and publish their findings in academic journals.
Because lecturers are only part-time, they receive lower salaries than full-time professors. The average annual salary of a lecturer in the United States is $56,712, while a full-time professor is $102,402. Associate professors also earn more than lecturers with an annual salary of $79,654. However, take note that lecturers have a professional career, and their stint as lecturers is only part-time. This means that their overall income is much more than their lecturer salary. 2b1af7f3a8
