Ekta Kapoor’s beloved supernatural show Naagin is back for its 6th season. The show, which is led by Bigg Boss 15 winner Tejasswi Prakash, Simba Nagpal, Mahekk Chahal and Urvashi Dholakia, premiered on TV from this weekend. The show went on air on February 12 and it’s making all kinds of noise.
But do you know how much the protagonists charged Ekta Kapoor per episode? According to the latest reports, Teja has been charged a huge amount.
According to a report in Bollywoodlife, Tejasswi Prakash, who wins hearts with her character Pratha, reportedly Rs 2 lakhs per episode. Wow! Is not that great? The same report further states that her co-star Simba Nagpal, who plays the role of Captain Rishabh Gujral, is allegedly Rs 1 lakh per episode.
Tejasswi Prakash’s sister, Mahekk Chahal, also claims the same as Simba, that is, Rs 1 lakh per episode. Other celebs like Adaa Khan, Sudha Chandran, Urvashi Dholakia, Amrapali Gupta, Ravi Gupta and Sudipta Banerjee cost Rs 70,000, Rs 3 lakh, Rs 50,000, Rs 75,000, Rs 45,000 and Rs 60,000, respectively.
During the latest interview, Mahekk Chahal commented on promoting superstition. She told News18 that Naagin is none other than a spider-man or any other Hollywood hero. She also said that Naagin is not just a shape-shifting snake, but a superhero.
She told the portal: “When you see who these two girls are now, they are super women in a way. Naagin is a super woman who saves India from whatever happens. So it’s not just something supernatural, also that she’s a super woman with super powers so when you watch english hollywood movies where you watch spiderman you expect superman to save everyone from evil wahan pe accept kar lete ho lekin jab auratein aati hai aur strong character nibhati hai toh problem ho jaati hai (You can accept it there but have a problem when women become strong characters) What’s the problem I don’t understand English mein accept karte ho but Hindi mein nahi karna (You can accept it in English but not in Hindi).”
