TV’s 10 highest paid actors in 2016: Television’s highest remuneration went as high as Rs 100 crore annually in 2016. Kapil Sharma obviously is on number one spot.
 
India’s film industry might be the largest in the world. But who says the country’s television is lagging behind? It is fast growing and might just surpass Bollywood in no time. No wonder all our film celebs do not mind making their television debuts. Sometimes it is due to the content that clicks better with the audience than films, at others it is due to the remuneration. With the biggest Bollywood banners like Balaji, Rajshri and Vishesh Films not minding investing in television, the entire budget and production cost is growing with each new television show. So much so, that the makers are ready to sign TV actors for an enormous amount of money too.

Here is a list of the highest paid television actors, who walked home with the most moolah in 2016.

1. Kapil Sharma – Rs 60-80 lakh per episode

Kapil Sharma has been on top of this list for a while now. But what we saw this year can give anyone a run for their money, quite literally. According to reports, Kapil is getting a whopping Rs. 110 crore for his renewed year-long stint with Sony. Considering his show The Kapil Sharma Show is the top TRP generator not just on the channel, but on the Indian television currently, the comedian easily pockets Rs 60-80 lakh per episode.

2. Sunil Grover – Rs 10-12 lakh per episode

Kapil’s aide and close friend Sunil Grover stands second on the list. It won’t be wrong to give credit to Sunil and his iconic comic acts for making Kapil’s comedy shows a grand success. Sunil takes home anything between Rs 10-12 lakh. Sunil who has done small appearances in films and has made a better name for himself on television, mainly as Gutthi and Dr. Mashoor Gulati. He totally deserves it.

3. Mishal Raheja – Rs 1.6 lakh per episode

Mishal Rahega surprisingly stands on the third spot. In the mid of 2016, there were reports that the actor, who was the face of Ishq Ka Rang Safed, and had also played Datta Bhau in Laagi Tujhse Lagan, conveniently asked for an exorbitant hike which the production house of Ishq Ka Rang Safed agreed to. When asked, all Mishal said was, “I believe I deserve the amount I have quoted for a seven-day telecast.”

4. Ronit Roy, Ram Kapoor – Rs 1.25 lakh per episode

Here are two actors who comfortably keep switching between Bollywood and television. Both of them are said to be two of Ekta Kapoor’s favourite actors. Ronit and Ram are choosy about picking roles, but when they do, they charge Rs. 1.25 lakh per episode. Also, both of them have a policy that allows them to work for only 15 days a month.

5. Hina Khan, Karan Patel – Rs 1-1.25 lakh per episode

Both Hina and Karan are one of the most popular faces on television. While Karan takes home this amount for his show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, Hina took the same money for her show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Now that she has quit, we wonder whether she will hike her fees for her next show, rumoured to be Colors’ Chandrakanta.

6. Divyanka Tripathi, Mohit Raina, Drashti Dhami – Rs 1 lakh per episode

Divyanka charges Rs 1 lakh for Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, while Mohit took the same amount for Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat, which was telecast till October 2016. We are awaiting Mohit’s next announcement and his remuneration. Speaking about Drashti, she hiked her fees after winning celebrity dance show, Jhalak Dikhla Jaa in 2013. She now gets around Rs 1 lakh for her new show Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil.

10. Sriti Jha, Anita Hassanandani – Rs 60,000 per episode
sriti jha, anita hassanandani Sriti Jha and Anita Hassanandani have been a part of Ekta Kapoor’s productions for many years. One plays the protagonist, the other an antagonist, but both deserve what they get. Sriti Jha, the lead of Kumkum Bhagya is also the face of the show. While Anita is the face of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, but on the grey side. The two charge approx Rs 60,000 per episode.
