At a time when popular actor and host Kamal Haasan has threatened to quit Bigg Boss Tamil following Oviya’s exit, the TV program has been garnering all the attention. Aired on Vijay TV, the reality based show has hit chords with the Tamil Nadu viewers who are loving it to the fullest. Earlier reports claimed that Kamal Haasan gets Rs 15 crore per episode to host Bigg Boss Tamil. Now, the weekly earnings of the contestants are out, which may surprise you.
It has been reported that the income of the participants varies from person to person. The popular Bigg Boss Tamil contestants such as Namitha, Oviya, Shree, Ganesh Venkataraman and Sakthi Vasu earn three Lakhs every week. Meanwhile, the weekly income of Anuya Bhagvath, Snehan, Vaiyapuri, Aarthi, Gayathri Raghuram and Ganja Karapu stands at 2 Lakhs, reports added.
The remaining contestants Bharani, Raiza Wilson, Aarav, and Juliana earn Rs 1 Lakh per week, the reports concluded.
Recently, a Bigg Boss Tamil episode received flack on social media, where contestants were asked to behave like mentally challenged people. Even host Kamal Haasan criticized the episode and gave threatening to the makers.
Oviya, on the other hand, expressed her love for her co-contestant Aarav before leaving stating that it was impossible for her to stay away from him. The lady, who was fighting mental issues even consulted to psychiatrists thrice in the week. But, seems that things didn’t work for her and hence, she decided to quit Bigg Boss.
You can watch Vijay TV’S Bigg Boss Tamil from Monday to Friday at 9 pm. On Saturdays and Sunday, the reality show begins at 8:30 pm.
Namitha is highest paid Bigg Boss housemate
Namitha is the highest paid housemate in Bigg Boss. Netizens say that Kamal Haasan will postpone the elimination from today to next week. Another group says that it is Anuya who will be shown the door.
Yesterday Kamal Hassan interacted with the housemates through video conferencing witnessed by a live audience. As many housemates were not aware of the conspiracies around, Kamal deftly broke down the so-called attitudes. The brazen housemates who plotted and fought even against the Team Captain were seen sitting like puppies before Ulaganayagan. He had a word of praise to those who deserved.
A source tells us that the housemates of Bigg Boss have been put in three categories with regard to payments. All are credited with a weekly salary. Namitha who was the extra addition to 14 participants is paid Rs 3 lakh per week. Oviya, Shree, Ganesh Venkataraman and Shakthi Vasudevan are paid Rs 2.5 lakh each. Aarthi, Anuya and Gayathri Raghuram are paid Rs 2 lakh each. Vaiyapuri, Kanja Karuppu, and Snehan are paid Rs 1.5 lakh each. Bharani, Raiza and Arrar are paid Rs 1 lakh. Juliana gets Rs 50,000 per week. The amount was decided after taking into account their earnings.
Netizens say that the elimination will not take place today. Kamal will say that Shree has voluntarily quit already and hence push it to next week. Others say that Anuya will go out as in the last few days Juliana has changed the way she talks and behaves with housemates. They feel that a nurse by profession is the face of the common man who should not lose out to the filmy guys and girls. Netizens also feel that Snehan at the drop of a hat keeps hugging women housemates.
Will Anuya or Juliana go out of Bigg Boss ? Will Kamal spare them ? remains to be seen.
