  • Reports suggests actor Dipika Kakar to be paid double the amount television actress Hina Khan was paid
  • 'Sasual Simar Ka' actress Dipika Kakar to enter the 'Bigg Boss' house alone

Dipika Kakar who is best known for her role in 'Sasural Simar Ka' is reportedly going to be part of this year's 'Bigg Boss' Season 12 and what is surprising is that she has reportedly been offered a whopping amount to be a part of the reality show. According to reports, the actress will be paid Rs. 14-16 lakh per week which is much more than what actress Hina Khan was offered in the last season. The 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai' fame actress Hina Khan was paid Rs. 7-8 Lakh a week, which was the highest amount paid to a participant in the house during the season. Though Dipika has always been a fan of the show, she has always refused to be a part of it. But it seems like this time she was given an offer she couldn't refuse.

Every year 'Bigg Boss' comes up with a unique theme and this time it is called Vichitra Jodi, in which team members will enter the house in pairs. Though 'Bigg Boss' initially wanted real life Jodi's in the house, the amount charged by the celebs was humungous, thus, changing the plan last minute. A number of single celebs will be paired with other celebs inside the show itself. The show was officially launched by Salman Khan in Goa on Tuesday, September 4, where he introduced comedian Bharti Singh and her husband Haarsh as the first contestants.

According to sources, September 16 is the tentative date when 'Bigg Boss 12' will premiere. The top celebrities that are expected this season are Srishty Rode, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Ridhima Pandit, Shaleen Bhanot, and Neha Pendse among others. Speculations were rife that Dipika will enter the house with her husband Shoaib Ibrahim, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Dipika Kakar married her beau Shoaib in February 2018 who was also her co-star from the show 'Sasural Simar Ka'. While Dipika has no projects on board, Shoaib currently plays the lead role in the television show 'Jeet Gayi Toh Piya Morey'. Thus, Dipika is most likely to be a part of the famous reality show all by herself. Though Hina Khan ended up being the runner-up last season, Dipika's fans have to wait and watch the reality show this season to see how far will Dipika's journey go up to.
