Whenever an actor gets popular or is well-recognised everyone wants to know the remuneration of an actor as to how much they get paid per episode or every film. Well, here we are going to talk about Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s Jethalal aka Dilip Joshi, who has been making his audience laugh for more than a decade is touted to be the highest-paid actors on the show. As per a report in Zoom Digital, he gets approximately Rs 1.5 lakh for every episode of the sitcom, thus making him the highest-paid actors on the show.
After Dilip, Taarak Mehta aka Shailesh Lodha gets Rs 1 lakh per episode while Mandar Chandwadkar who essays the role of Aatmaram Tukaram Bhide gets Rs 80,000 per episode. The same report also stated that Babita aka Munmun Dutta earns up to Rs 50,000 per episode. However, earlier, there were reports that after Dilip Joshi it was his onscreen wife Daya Ben aka Disha Vakani who was also the highest-paid actor in the show. Dilip Joshi has been adored for his comic timings and his perfect expressions. He is one of the most loved characters in the show.
In one of the episodes of India’s Best Dancer, when the TMKOC team graced the show, producer Asim Modi even said that his expectations were high for Dilip. He called Joshi his ‘opening Batmans, the opening bowler, the captain.’
Meanwhile, earlier, it was said that the show is garnering fewer TRPs and the popular sitcom is deteriorating in quality. However, refuting those rumours, Modi told to HT, “Honestly, we are shooting during the pandemic, the situation is very bad in the city and we all know that.” He continued, “We can't show a repetitive storyline to the audience because the sitcom has a repeat telecast on the channel and it is also equally loved by people and we will be caught. We can't afford to do that. We work day and night, the writers so that we bring good stories. We are not repetitive and that's the only reason the show has sustained in the industry for the last 13 years.”
