Bigg Boss 10 celebrity contestant Karan Mehra may just have started the reality show on an unexpected high. Not a true blue celebrity in the conventional sense, except perhaps for playing Naitik in Star Plus’ popular soap Yeh Rishta Kyaa Kehlata Hai, reports suggest that Karan negotiated a massive deal for himself for taking part in the show.
Karan entered the Bigg Boss house as a celebrity contestant on the tenth season of the show that kickstarted late Sunday.
According to a report in DNA, Karan is getting a whopping Rs 1 crore. “The Colors team had to meet Karan a couple of times before getting him on board. There were a lot of talks about his remuneration and finally, the team has paid him around a whopping Rs 1 crore to be on Bigg Boss this year. That was too lucrative an offer to say no to,” it quoted a source as saying.
This will be apart from the prize money he may win on the show.
Hindustan Times could not independently verify the report.
Karan Mehra is joined by five other celebrity contestants and eight common people as participants on Bigg Biss 10. Actors Rohan Mehra, Monalisa, Gaurav Chopra, Rahul Dev Kaushal and model Lopamudra Raut are the other celebrity contestants on the reality show.
Nitibha Kaul, Manoj Punjabi, Manveer Gurjar, Lokesh Kumari Sharma, Priyanka Jagga, Akansha Sharma and Om Swami are the common people on the show.
Catch all the drama at 10:30pm weeknights on COLORS.
