Salaries of Bigg Boss 16 contestants, here’s how much they are getting paid

Bigg Boss is a popular Indian reality show that is both watched and adored (despite being teased and mocked). Salman Khan is the host of the show, where contestants are forced to stay in the house for a few days and perform daily activities as they bicker and scream like lunatics.

Bigg Boss was launched in India by Sony Pictures Television. The show debuted in 2006 with Arshad Warsi as host. The show debuted on Sony TV, which eventually sold it to Colours TV, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Payouts to the competitor can be divided into two categories: direct and indirect. Either they are paid weekly or they are paid in one lump sum at the end of the shooting season. 

It’s a well-known truth that signing a contract before moving in is standard procedure. However, are we aware of the contents of the contract? If candidates opt to leave the show in the middle, they will have to pay a substantial fine. The total fine is Rs. 2 crore!

Despite the fact that people are encouraged to clean their homes and make a big deal out of them. It’s a fabrication. Participants aren’t allowed to interact with the house’s cleaning crew since they’re not allowed to interact with anyone else.
