Since host Rohit Shetty shared a charged-up teaser clip on social media, the anticipation for Khatron Ke Khiladi season 11 has skyrocketed. The drama, which will star Shweta Tiwari, Rahul Vaidya, Divyanka Tripathi, and others, is expected to air in July.
Meanwhile, information on Shetty’s pay, as well as the pay of each candidate, is here in this article. Keep reading for all the details.
Rahul Vaidya, the original of reality programmes, will have his cake and eat it too this season by becoming the highest-paid contestant. He is said to have demanded Rs. 15 lakh every episode. His stellar performance on Bigg Boss 14 appears to have cleared the door for such a large sum of money. Next is Divyanka Tripathi, who is charging Rs. 10 lakh each episode for her role in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein.
Arjun Bijlani, who rose to fame for his roles in Naagin and Miley Jab Hum Tum, is third in line and will earn Rs. 7 lakh every episode. Anushka Sen, the star of Baalveer and this season’s youngest participant, who is now suffering with COVID-19, will be paid Rs. 5L every episode. Nikki Tamboli, another Bigg Boss alum, is reportedly paid Rs. 4.43 lakh every episode.
Shweta Tiwari, who is in a bitter custody battle with her separated husband Abhinav Kohli, will charge roughly Rs. 4 lakh every episode. Abhinav Shukla, an actor and Bigg Boss 14 contestant, is close to earning Rs. 4.25 lakh. Varun Sood, a reality TV star, is paid Rs. 3.83 lakh, while Vishal Aditya Singh, a Bigg Boss 13 favourite, is given Rs. 3.34 lakh.
Naturally, Shetty, who is hosting his sixth season this year, is the highest-paid. He wants Rs. 49 lakh for each episode! Participants in the stunt-based reality show, which is modelled on the English show Fear Factor, do risky stunts in order to overcome their fear.
Shetty has been in charge since 2014, with a brief hiatus in 2016. The show was previously hosted by Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra.
