As we know Bigg Boss is one of the most watched television show in the Indian history. There are many clauses, contestants Need to Agree on before Entering Show. Take a look at certain clauses of “Bigg Boss” that is followed every season.
Every celebrity is paid a bomb to participate in Bigg Boss. This particular contestant was paid somewhere close to Rs 8 lakh as the signing amount, which is payable within seven days of execution of the contract
Apart from the signing amount, participants are also given a weekly consideration, if the contestant manages to stay in the house over a period exceeding two weeks. Obviously, weekly consideration is payable to a contestant only for the period of his/her stay inside the glass walled house. Last season, Tanishaa Mukerji was paid somewhere around Rs 8 lakh per week, which was the highest when compared to the weekly consideration of her co-contestants.
Term of the contract
A Bigg Boss contestant is required to be available exclusively to Viacom 18 (producers and broadcasters of the show) for the period of 117 days, of which approximately 100 days is for shooting inside the house and the rest 17 days for the preparation, promotion, marketing and promo shoots.
Contestants cannot interfere in the matters of editing and final cut of the episodes
No contestant is allowed to interfere in the nature and manner of editing of the programme. So let’s just say, if Ali Quli Mirza touched Sonali Raut under the blanket (which he did) and he doesn’t want it to be shown on the TV, it can’t happen.
No Books Allowed
Participants are not allowed to carry any reading material including holy books inside the house. The makers will provide scriptures or holy books to contestants who need them.
No Communication with Media after Selection
Contestants don’t have the liberty to communicate with the media about their selection. In case they reveal, the makers have the authority to remove his/her participation from the show.
Fine for leaving the house
The most important clause in the BB contract. A contestant is liable to pay Rs 50 lakh if he/she leaves the show mid-way. When Rahul Mahajan called it quits from BB2, he paid a fine to the producers. Similarly, both Kushal Tandon and Gauahar Khan were asked to pay the penalty for their untimely exit from BB7. However, they both returned to the house and the rest as we all know is history.
