Bigg Boss 17 is currently the talk of the town with participants like Ankita Lokhande, her husband Vicky Jain, Lock Up season 1 winner Munawar Faruqi, Priyanka Chopra & Parineeti Chopra’s cousin Mannara Chopra, Neil Bhatt, Aishwarya Sharma, Isha Malviya, Abhishek Kumar and others. The reality show hosted by Salman Khan underwent a makeover this year when he decided to play Bigg Boss himself.
The show, in the first episode, announced that Bigg Boss, this year, will be mostly biased towards the popular contestants, an allegation that has been leveled over the years. So this year, Bigg Boss decided to unleash its evil side and put to rest all the allegations and assumptions.
Coming to the voice artist, every year, there is some or the other female contestant who falls in love with Bigg Boss and his voice. Do you know, Atul Kapoor, a voice artist, has been playing Bigg Boss since the first season. But do you know how much he charges to play Bigg Boss?
Well, a report from India Today reported for the last season that Atul Kapoor charges around 50 lakh for the entire season! If reports are to be believed, he might be charging the same amount or more to be a part of Bigg Boss 17. Interestingly, that is more than the winning amount.
Initially, the winning amount of the show was 1 crore for the first few seasons, and then it came down to 50 lakh. In recent years, the prize money has been reduced to zero during the season, and the contestants have to earn the prize money.
So, the voice of Bigg Boss, Atul Kapoor, definitely deserves more than the prize money. However, can you guess how much that compares to Bigg Boss host Salman Khan? The host earns 12 crores per week. Bhaijaan basically shoots for one day to host the Weekend Ka Vaar, which is usually a 5 – 6 hour shoot.
Doing the math, Bhai cuts roughly 2 crack per hour to host Bigg Boss. Basically, the voice of Bigg Boss is paid 15 minutes worth of Salman Khan’s salary to run the entire season!
Atul Kapoor is a famous voice artist, and you might not have recognized him. He has voiced Paul Bettany in the Marvel and Avenger movies as the voice of JARVIS in the Hindi dub.
