The makers of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa are reportedly paying the new judges Shahid Kapoor way more than what they paid the Dhak Dhak girl, Madhuri Dixit, for the previous seasons.
A leading website has reported saying the Haider actor is getting paid a whopping Rs 1.75 crore per episode for Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8 while the elegant actress was paid Rs 1 crore per episode for the three seasons she judged.
Shahid is replacing Madhuri and Ganesh Hegde is replacing Remo D'Souza as the new judges in the forthcoming celebrity dance reality show. Karan Johar is going to be the only judge who was on the show previously.
The makers are shelling riches not only on the judges but are also reported to be paying the host of the show, Manish Paul, a substantial amount of Rs 1 crore for the season. How much Karan and Ganesh are going to be paid is yet to be known.
