The season is all set to start and this time the judges' panel will see some fresh and exciting faces
So the latest scoop is that Colors is done with Madhuri Dixit on the judges' panel and they've roped in Shahid Kapoor instead. From what we hear the makers have signed the dishy dude for a whopping amount, which is much higher that what Madhuri was being paid.
Since 2012 Madhuri was being paid about Rs 1 crore per episode and the trend continued till season seven. Now that she has been replaced by Shahid, the amount has gone up. The Haider actor is being paid a whopping amount of about Rs 1.75 crore per episode. OMG! That is some amount to be paid; we hope the judges on the other shows are listening.
According to rumours, even Manish Paul's pay scale has been bumped up. The comedian-host-actor will be paid about Rs 1cr. for the season. We wonder what's Karan Johar and Ganesh Hegde's pay check for judging JDJ8.
With Shahid's impending wedding looks like the actor has hit jackpot with this offer from Colors. Stay tuned to this space for more news and spicy gossip from Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8.
