Bigg Boss Telugu 4: Is host Nagarjuna Akkineni charging Rs. 8 crore for the upcoming season?
Nagarjuna Akkineni has turned out to be one of the most successful show host of the Bigg Boss Telugu series. The previous season has reportedly registered some record-breaking TVRs which is one of the reasons why Nagarjuna will return to host the show in the upcoming fourth season as well.
Close sources reveal that Nagarjuna has hiked his fee for the upcoming season and he is apparently charging nearly Rs. 8 crore for the season. However, an official confirmation on this is awaited.
Industry sources opine that he is charging lesser than what Jr NTR had charged for the first season though. Nagarjuna was rumoured to have received Rs. 12 lakh per episode in the previous season.
It remains to be seen if special conditions induced by COVID-19 pandemic and the budgets will affect his remuneration for the reality show.
Nagarjuna has recently shot for the teaser of Bigg Boss Telugu season 4 and he is taking extra care while shooting. The production house is also ensuring that the host shoots for the show under a controlled environment.
