Nach Baliye season is back with lots of gossip and rumors in it. The latest is that TV star comedian Bharti Singh is the highest paid celeb of this season, season 8. Yes, you read it right, neither Divyanka Tripathi and Vivek Dahiya nor Sanaya Irani and Mohit Sehgal, its Bharti Singh and her beau Harsh who are making the amount.
A few days back it was rumored that TV’s pretty diva Sanaya Irani and her dishy husband, Mohit Sehgal were the highest paid contestants on Nach Baliye 8. However, that is not the case. This year, the lineup on Nach Baliye 8 is a starry one with some of the biggest names in the business.
While there was speculation that Divyanka Tripathi and Vivek Dahiya are making the maximum moolah, it seems even that’s not the case. It is TV’s star comedienne Bharti Singh and her beau, Harsh who are making the maximum amount. Honestly, we are not a bit surprised by this piece of news.
A source informed Bollywood Life that Bharti Singh is pocketing Rs 30 lakhs per episode. This makes her the highest paid. It seems it took a lot of convincing from Star Plus for Bharti and Harsh to come on board. She had said that Harsh was a shy type and not someone to dance before the whole world.
However, we are seeing that he is putting in a lot of hard work and his chemistry in the promo is damn cute. Bharti Singh is a hugely popular TV celeb with a terrific fan base. She is also amongst the 100 highest paid entertainers in the country in the Forbes List along with Krushna Abhishek and Kapil Sharma.
Bharti has done Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa before with Savio who happens to be her choreographer for this season as well. This will be Harsh’s first tryst before the camera. He is a hugely successful writer cum producer. It seems it was damn tough for him to take out time for this show but he managed on Bharti’s wishes.
The couple is slated to marry this year in November or December. Bharti and Harsh are friends since eight years, unlike two years as reported by many. She describes her guy as her ‘best friend’ and ‘partner in crime’. The couple is adored by Bharti’s fans. Nach Baliye will be Bharti reunion with Star Plus after a while. Since past few years, she has been mostly seen on Colors.
Along with Bharti and Harsh, TV stars like Dipika Kakar-Shoaib Ibrahim, Divyanka Tripathi and husband Vivek Dahiya, RJ Pritam and his wife, Sanaya Irani with her husband Mohit Sehgal, as well as Bigg Boss 10’s Mona Lisa and husband Vikrant are some celebrities that are taking part in the show.
TV stars Divyanka Tripathi and husband Vivek Dahiya have already shot for the promotional video for this season of Nach Baliye that is running on the channel.
Bollywood actor Sonakshi Sinha, choreographer Terence Lewis, and filmmaker Mohit Suri are on the judges’ panel. The show will go on air on April 2. The show will run on Saturday – Sunday, 8 pm on Star plus.
