Bigg Boss 14 will once again see a mix of celebrities and semi-known faces. Once they sign a contract, they would have to go under quarantine for a while before entering the show. The season will extensively play around the ‘lockdown’ and ‘social distancing’.

If reports are to be believed, Salman Khan will get a whooping amount of Rs 4.5 billion. A source said, “While the three-month stint works out to INR480 crore (4.8 billion), the makers and he agreed to seal the deal at INR450 crore (4.5 billion). The amount is inclusive of his fee for promos and virtual press conferences.”

As per Bollywood Hungama, the channel and the producers are paying Salman extra Rs 200 million per episode to continue as host. With the new hike, his new remuneration is Rs 85 million per episode, which means he will take home a hefty amount of Rs 4.5 billion and even more for the entire season.
