Singing reality show Indian Idol is in its 11th season this year and Saturday saw a bang with the beginning of this reality show on the television platform. Tremendous fan following for this show has just increased with each passing year. While the last season saw Anu Malik who was later replaced by Javed Ali, Neha Kakkar and Vishal Dadlani, this season makers have got back to the original trio of previous season on the judging panel. With the tremendous popularity of the show, we wonder what would be the paychecks of these judges.
Starting with Anu Malik who has been associated with show for many years now, takes home a paycheck of worth Rs. 4 lakh approximately per episode. Yes! Peeps you are reading it right. The music composer, singer and music director began his career in 1980 and has given several hits. The judge is known to appreciate an excellent performance on the show with, “Tu aag laga dega” Next in the row following Anu Malik’s remuneration is music artiste Vishal Dadlani. Any guesses how much would it be?

Finally comes the front runner of this race, singer Neha Kakkar. Neha Kakkar takes home a whopping amount of Rs. 5 lakh approximately per episode. Though the makers were planning to replace the Neha with Neeti Mohan, keeping in mind her popularity they zeroed down on Neha yet again.
Besides the judges, host Aditya Narayan withdraws Rs. 2.5 lakh approximately per episode. Aditya replaced the most popular host Manish Paul for this season.
