If the reports are indeed true, Hina Khan could very well be the highest paid actor on television soap operas right now. The Bigg Boss alumnus is reported to have bagged the role of Komolika in the Kasauti Zindagi Kay reboot and is charging Rs 2.25 lakh per episode.

According to a report in SpotBoye, her new fees is heavily influenced by her very successful sting at reality show Bigg Boss’s 11th season last year. “Hina Khan will be charging Rs 2.25 lakh per episode, which is huge in the telly world. She is coming back to the small screen post the success of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and Bigg Boss 11, hence the makers agreed to pay the sum,” a source told the tabloid.


Hina is set to take Urvashi Dholakia’s role on the show. Urvashi made Komolika iconic with her over-the-top make up choices and evil plots. While television producer Ekta Kapoor did say in a tweet that Urvashi is irreplaceable, she seems to have finally found a replacement.

The show’s leads, Shweta Tiwari and Cezanne Khan, will be replaced by Erica Fernandez and Parth Samthaan. The show has already begun shooting and the leaked pictures of the lead actors from the show’s sets are already going viral.

Kasauti Zindagi Kay will air from late September.
