Samantha Akkineni stepped into the shoes of her father-in-law Nagarjuna Akkineni this past week, and hosted Bigg Boss Telugu Season 4, while Nagarjuna is busy shooting for Wild Dog in the Himalayas. Samantha is expected to continue for at least 2 more weeks, while Nagarjuna continues to remain busy.
According to the latest reports, Samantha is getting a bigger paycheck than Nagarjuna, for hosting just 5 episodes. Nagarjuna is getting a total of Rs. 8 Crores for hosting the season. On the other hand, Samantha is reportedly receiving Rs. 2.1 Crores for hosting just 5 episodes.
This is indeed a huge number for 5 episodes, in comparison to Nagarjuna’s remuneration for the entire season. This is also more than a film’s paycheck. Samantha is indeed dominating her own father-in-law in this aspect. This once again proves that Samantha is unstoppable, and that her craze is unmatched.
