Host Salman Khan, whose salary has risen since he first became associated with the show, had previously said that he’d be willing to take a pay cut this year to get the show back on track after the coronavirus-induced economic slump.

He said he will be ‘more than happy’ to take home a smaller paycheck, so that the unit does not have to suffer. “I am more than happy to cut it down so everyone else can get paid,” Salman said, talking to Abhishek Rege, CEO of Endemol Shine India, at the launch event. During their chat, Abhishek revealed that though the new normal requires a lesser number of people on a set, they have not let go of any employees.

“The new normal wants us to have few people on the set, but we are putting people in shifts. We are not reducing employment numbers at all. We are committing to the same number of people on payrolls, although their time on the set will be reduced by shifts,” he said, adding that no one from the Bigg Boss team was given a pay cut.

“What about mine? Doesn’t matter! I am more than happy to cut it down so everyone else can get paid,” Salman said. He also revealed that a key reason for him taking up Bigg Boss 14 was because of the employment it would generate.
