Kareena Kapoor Khan’s TV debut may be coming with a hefty price tag for the makers of ‘Dance India Dance’ season 7. The actress, who currently has several projects in motion, wants to ensure that the weekly TV appearance is worth her while.
According to a source, “Since television is extremely demanding and would need Bebo to spend a lot of time every week on sets, Bebo has demanded a hefty amount which ranges between 2.5 crores to 3 crores per episode. Kareena will be juggling between working for ‘Angrezi Medium’ and DID (‘Dance India Dance’) and hence the makers have also chalked out the dates to make sure it doesn’t coincide with her film dates. The team will be shooting and holding a press conference for the show on May 30.”, Pinkvilla reported. To put the salary in perspective, Shilpa Shetty Kundra reportedly earns 14 crore for a season of ‘Super Dancer’, while Salman Khan charged around 12 crore per episode for ‘Bigg Boss 12’.
Apart from Kapoor, the show will also have two other judges. the 7th season will be hosted by ‘Kundali Bhagya’ star Dheeraj Dhoopar.
