From contestant list to the host Salman Khan, Bigg Boss 13 before hitting the TV screens had started creating the noise all over. The show will start aring by the end of September this year and there are reports that the makers are planning a lot of changes some of which include change of location from Lonavala, participation of only celebrities and no commoners this season etc. This has led the fans wondering if there will be any changes in the fees of the host or not.
Well this has always been an interesting topic of discussion amongst the viewers of the show. What will be the huge amount that will be credited into the Bharat actor's account for hosting the reality show again. Not only this, there are also reports that state that the actor might also get a lady host to accompany him this year. Salman is one of the biggest star of the industry and so his paycheque definitely has to be increased proportionately.
The actor has been hosting the show since the season 4. Till the sixth season of the show, his fees was around Rs 2.5 crore per episode which got doubled to Rs 5 crore in Season 7. For the eight season, the Tiger Zinda Hai actor charged Rs 5.5 crore and later he got Rs 7-8 crore in Season 9. In season 10, he took home Rs 8 crore per episode, Rs 11 crore for Season 11 and for Bigg Boss 12 he was supposedly taking Rs 12 crore- Rs 14 crore per episode. This is just the fees of the Weekend Ka Vaar episodes that he hosts for the show.
If reports are to be believed, the actor for the thirteenth season will get as many as Rs 16- 18 crore per episode that he hosts, that's definitely a handsome amount. Talking about the contestants, the list is still unknown to know more about what they are getting. Some celebrities including Zareen Khan, Vivek Dahiya, Karan Patel, Meghna Mallik, Himansh Kohli, Rajpal Yadav, Karan Grover, Dayanand Shetty, Jay Bhanushali, Mahhi Vij, Ankita Lokhande, Deboleena Bhattacharjee and many more have been approached but none has bid a yes till now.
