This year, Bigg Boss 11 has been a thumping success. The TRPs of the show have touched 2.2 on weekdays and the Weekend Ka Vaar is around 2.3 to 2.5. Undoubtedly, this has motivated the makers to get in bigger names and pitch in more resources on the controversial reality show. We have seen how the image of some famous TV personalities have gone for a toss inside the house. Bollywood Life had EXCLUSIVELY informed you about the fee pocketed in by the contestants this season. It was Hina Khan who led the pack as she was getting Rs 7-8 lakh per week followed by industry veteran Hiten Tejwani who was making Rs 7 to 7.5 lakh per week.
As per a source, the team of Bigg Boss 11 was keen to rope in Shakti Arora as a wild card entry inside the house. And they were willing to offer him around Rs 20 lakh a week for his presence inside the house. He is a home boy for Colors as he has done shows like Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. Shakti has been in Indonesia for the past few months where MATSH is a rage. He did an Indonesian web-series and shows like Pesbuskers there. If you're wondering why such a staggering amount for the handsome actor, well here's the reason. Shakti has 1.8 million followers on Instagram while the highest-paid contestant Hina Khan has 1.4 followers. Even on Twitter, he has 135K followers while Hina has 95.4K.
It is evident that he is the clear leader. However, Shakti apparently refused Bigg Boss 11 as he feel he is not cut out for the show. The actor feels he cannot deal with the negativity and politics inside the house. Now, he is in India and hopes to do a good daily show soon. We feel Shakti would have been good eye candy inside the house? Stay tuned to BL for more scoop and updates....
