Bigg Boss 12 has announced this year’s theme that contestants will be entering the house as being a part of a ‘jodi’ (couple).
Everybody is eager to see actress and model Mahika Sharma and British porn-star Danny D enter the show.

Assuming they will share the fee equally, this will be £53,000 each per week.
It was reported that last year’s contestant Hina Khan was the highest paid in the show, receiving Rs 8 lakh (approximately £9,000 per week).
For season 10 of the show, the producers allowed ‘commoners’ to enter the Bigg Boss house for the first time and reportedly each ‘commoner’ was paid a mere Rs 25,000 (£276) per week.

“They keep topping the show each year, so I have high hopes.”
