Just like Hindi Bigg Boss, BB down South has a massive fan following and fans are currently awaiting the new season of the popular show. While there’s no official announcement regarding the upcoming season of the Salman Khan-led show, but Nagarjuna, on the other hand, will return to host the 6th season of the Telugu version, which is set to premiere in September.
Interestingly, Nagarjuna has been following Salman Khan’s footsteps which demands a fee hike every year. Jumping from Rs 12 Crore, the superstar will receive a whopping amount for the latest season.
The south star is all set to charm everyone with his hosting skills in Bigg Boss 6 Telugu, but it is his remuneration that will leave you shocked. As per Tollywood.Net, the Mass actor will be taking somewhere around Rs 15 Crore as his remuneration for the upcoming season.
The South superstar is a senior actor, but he stands nowhere close to Salman Khan when it comes to fees. Whereas Salman Khan was reportedly Rs 1050 crore for hosting Bigg Boss.
For Bigg Boss 5 Telugu, Nagarjuna charged about Rs 12 Lakh per episode, which was Rs 12 Crore for the entire season. On other hand, Salman Khan was receiving Rs 350 Crore for BB 15 but for the upcoming season, he is aiming for an enormous amount.
