Following in the footsteps of Rani Mukherjee, Bipasha is all set to rake in the moolah on the small screen. The dusky damsel will soon be seen hosting an upcoming reality show, Female Model Hunt.
If the deal comes through, Bipasha may become the highest-paid woman celebrity on Indian television.
The show will be produced by Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Idiot Box. The format of the show is inspired from popular US show America's Next Top Model. Red Chillies has begun inviting applications from contestants. They are yet to finalise which channel will air the show.
Bipasha's paycheque is expected to be fatter than Preity Zinta, Sushmita Sen and Rani Mukherji who are also making big money on television.
While Sush is believed to have been offered almost Rs 50 lakh for an appearance in an upcoming show, Raaz Pichlay Janam Ka, Rani, too, is creating a buzz with her debut television stint as celebrity judge. She is earning Rs 50 lakh per episode for judging Sony's Dance Premier League.
While the Bong babes are indeed raking in the moolah on television, Preity Zinta is not far behind. The actress is believed to have signed The Preity Zinta Show, a celebrity chat show and is reportedly set to receive Rs 60 lakh per episode.
