The latest season of popular reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ is successfully doing its job of stirring up the entire nation thanks to the bizarre antics of the contestants living in ‘the House’. Intense discussions surrounding inmates both loved and hated in equal measure are a common sight. Somehow, even if you are not a regular watcher of the show you end up knowing at least the highlights. There is just no avoiding it!
The Bigg Boss House boasts of a nasty reputation of making the situation messier and tenser as the days progress. At times you are left to wonder why would anyone play so dirty and get personal on the small screen when it gets telecasted in front of millions. The answer is pretty simple, ‘sab paise ki maya hai’.
Believe it or not, these people earn more than what you make in a year in a span of just one week. When Zubair Khan was evicted, he revealed to a leading daily that ‘commoners’ get paid Rs 25,000 per week.
Not impressed? Okay. According to reports, Hina Khan, Hiten Tejwani and Shilpa Shinde get lakhs every week to stay inside the House. That knock your damn socks off?
Hina is the highest paid among all the contestants. As per Bollywoodlife, the famous ‘bahu’ gets paid 7-8 lakhs every week. Which means, 2 weeks inside the House and she has already earned almost 14 to 16 lakhs.
Hiten, who has worked in the television industry for over a decade, reportedly gets paid around 7 lakhs per week.
The ‘Bhabhi Ji Gar Par Hai’ fame star reportedly earns around 6 to 6.5 lakhs.
The ‘Splitsvilla 10’ fame star who recently got evicted for getting in the middle of other fights was reportedly getting 4 to 4.5 lakhs every week.
Arshi Khan and Benafsha Soonawalla are paid a lump sum amount as well but it is comparatively much less than what the above celebrities get.
So know you know the reason behind these people KNOWINGLY making a complete fool out of themselves on national television! Money can make you do funny things.
