Salman Khan Big Boss 15 Fees in 2021
After being a host for Bigg Boss for the last eleven years, Salman Khan has become synonymous with the show. The actor brings his signature charisma as the host of the controversial reality show, attracting millions of watchers across the country.
Salman will be earning a whopping Rs 350 crores for 14 weeks. This means, the actor will be earning approximately Rs 25 crores for each weekend. For a single episode, the amount goes up to Rs 12 crore. This has been reported in News 18 portal.
This also shows how much his remuneration has increased since he first started hosting Bigg Boss in season 4. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Salman was paid Rs 2.5 crore per episode from seasons four to six of the show.
Throughout the years, Salman has become quiet involved in the show. We have seen him to be a experienced guide to the contestants, giving them relationship advice and scolding them for their behaviour in the show. In other words, there is no Bigg Boss mania without Salman Khan.
Hence, it is fitting that the actor has also received a very handsome remuneration for his role in the show.

Last year, Salman had said that he was happy to take a pay cut to ensure that the show continues during the pandemic year. “This is the reason why I am doing this season of Bigg Boss.
It’ll provide employment to people, there’s a very large unit, they will start getting their salary, they’ll be able to get ration for their homes,” he had said during a press conference. “Obviously you might not see huge increments, but we are paying full salary,” Abhishek Rege, CEO of Endemol Shine India said, to which Salman replied, “What about mine? It doesn’t matter. I am more than happy to cut it down so that everyone else gets paid.”
According to a Bollywood Hungama report, the actor was paid ₹2.5 crore per episode from seasons four to six of the show. “Thereafter, he doubled his fees to ₹5 crore for Bigg Boss 7. For Bigg Boss 8, Salman is estimated to have charged ₹5.5 crore per episode and for Bigg Boss 9, he increased his fees to ₹7-8 crore per episode. For season 10 of Bigg Boss, he took home ₹8 crore per episode,” the report said.
When it was reported that he would take home ₹11 crore per episode for the show’s 11th season, Salman said in a press conference, “Please make Raj (Nayak, Endemol COO) pay me that amount.”
While Salman made it sound like just a rumour, Raj’s response suggested that the number may not be too far from the actual figure. “Salman Khan doesn’t come cheap, you know,” he said.
