Shah Rukh Khan has become the highest paid TV host. He is receiving a remuneration of Rs 2.5 crore per episode for his forthcoming reality show Zor Ka Jhatka on TV. He will get Rs 40 crore for 16 episodes.
Earlier SRK hosted the popular TV shows Kya Hum Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain and Kaun Banega Crorepati, but he was paid around Rs 1.5 crore per episode.
The other Bollywood celebrities Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan who have hosted TV shows are reportedly paid less than Rs 2 crore per episode.
Right at the moment, Big B hosted Kaun Banega Crorepati has the highest TRP ratings and so it has to be seen how popular SRK’s Zor Ka Jhatka will become with the audience.
