Rohit Shetty has been hosting Khatron Ke Khiladi for the last many years and hence he is sort of a face that represents the stunt-based reality show. From directing the stunts to planning all the challenging sequences, the Simmba director is involved in every step of its production. And as expected, he gets rewarded hugely for his contribution.
This year as well the famous action director is getting paid a hefty remuneration for his participation as the host and stunt director in Khatron Ke Khiladi 11. According to reports, Rohit is charging Rs 49 lakhs per episode for this show. Considering the fact that he was a part of a 42-day schedule in Cape Town, South Africa for KKK11, he took home multiple crores this year for just one season.
The contestants of Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 are also being paid quite decently. Rahul Vaidya, the man who is all set to marry his ladylove Disha Parmar soon, was the highest-paid contestant this season. He charged Rs 15 lakh per episode followed by Divyanka Tripathi who received Rs 10 lakh for every episode.
Both Rahul Vaidya and Divyanka have a huge fan following on social media. While Rahul’s popularity soared when he became a part of Bigg Boss 14 as a contestant, Divyanka became a household name with her hit serial Yeh Hai Mohabbatein.
Apart from these two contestants, other contestants also earned quite a good amount for their participation in Khatron Ke Khiladi 11.
