The Bigg Boss franchise witnessed its biggest twist this season with the common man contesting in the house, along with celebrities. So far, 4 of the 8 Indiawale have been eliminated from Bigg Boss 10, the latest one to be Lokesh Kumari.
Earlier, it was reported that the commoners are not being paid any remuneration during their stay in the house, unlike the celebrities, who are paid a fixed amount for every week they stay in the house. Lokesh told BL:
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. 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.
Your thoughts on this pay disparity?
