Khan is the highest paid actor in Bollywood and now he is also
the highest paid actor on television. Last year Salman Khan took Rs
2.8-3 crore per episode but for Bigg Boss 6, the actor has
charged a whopping amount of Rs 3.8 toRs 4 crore per episode.
According to TOI, here is what other actors charged for doing TV
shows - Aamir Khan (Satyamev Jayate - Rs 3 crore per
episode), Shahrukh Khan (Total Wipeout: Zor Ka Jhatka - Rs
2 crore per episode), Hrithik Roshan (Just Dance - Rs 2
crore per episode), and Akshay Kumar (Khatron Ke Khiladi
season four - Rs 1.5 crore per episode). Amitabh Bachchan, though,
is in a different league altogether. He has signed a whopping deal
ofRs 100 crore for three seasons of Kaun Banega
A source says, "Salman relates to Bigg Boss because of
the concept and its appeal. The fact that he insisted that the show
become family-oriented and air at 9 pm, shows his involvement and
interest in it."
