Lokesh Kumari Sharma has been eliminated from Bigg Boss 10 this week!
Spoke to Lokesh after her exclusion. She talked about the house, her favourite contestants and a lot from her experiences. However, her statements about the pay scale of commoners was definitely very surprising.
It was said that the commoners of Bigg Boss 10 are not getting paid anything on either weekly or monthly scales. A source close to the show revealed:
The celebrities were given a signing amount, plus they are also being paid a fixed weekly remuneration. But the commoners are not being paid anything. Their pay scale will depend on the weeks they spend inside the house. But obviously, if a commoner manages to win the show, he/she will get the winning amount.
However, Lokesh had some different angle to see. She said:
The commoners are being paid way less than what the celebrities are getting. However, for a commoner to be on India’s biggest reality show and make their reputation is a huge deal in itself. So, it doesn’t really matter if we are paid less.
We know that Bani J and Rahul Dev are the highest paid contestants this year. The source also reveals,
Bani and Rahul are being paid the highest amount of money this year. They have been approached by the makers since last few seasons considering the two of them are known to have a personality which will boost the TRPs, but every time they refused the offer. So, when the producers went knocking at their doors yet again with a huge sum of money this year, the offer was too tempting for both of them to let go.
