It is quite a staggering amount...
One of the regular features of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa over the years is the presence of Manish Paul. The anchor has found his way in every season year after year. If reports in a leading daily are to be believed, then he is all set to become the highest non-Bollywood anchor ever. Yes, the man will be paid Rs 2.5 crore for the ninth season of the reality dance show. This comes upto Rs 7 lakhs per episode of Jhalak. We tried to get in touch with him but he did not revert to clarify on the same.
It seems he took home a neat pay packet of Rs 1.5 crore from the show last year. This year it has increased by a crore. Way to go, Manish! The current season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa will go on air from late July or start of August. It has an interesting line up of contestants. Arjun Bijlani, Shakti Arora, Helly Shah are the top daily soap actors while comedian Gaurav Gera will also be a part of it. Bollywood hotties Surveen Chawla and Karishma Tanna will also unleash their oomph on the dance floor.
Poonam and Priyanka Shah, chef Harpal Singh Sokhi are some of the other names. Jacqueline Fernandez is the celebrity judge for the season. Ganesh Hegde holds on to his spot as judge while Karan Johar is a permanent fixture.
