Gone are the times when television was aptly called the small screen. Well, not more definitely. Today television has become huge and is giving tough competition to its counterpart — The Bollywood. And not just the production budget, even the TV actors’ remuneration is at par with our film stars.
There have been enough debates as to whether or not they deserve the amount they ask for, and we cannot deny the fact that they work under more intense conditions, for more number of days per month and sometimes even end up playing the same character for an entire decade! So that’s absolutely fine if we tell you the amount of money producers are ready to pay top television actors like Ram Kapoor, Ronit Roy, Divyanka Tripathi and Hina Khan.
We all must have always thought that the Bollywood stars charge much higher than those of the TV stars. But that isn’t the reality anymore now. There is a list of TV stars who are richer than many of the B-town celebrities. That’s just because they charge per episode! For it only shows that Indian television is growing in numbers, not just in ratings, but also the actors’ fees. We list down 11 top actors on Indian television and their current fees. Don’t blame us if your jaws drop at the figures. Mind you, the numbers are for per episode. :O
