Reportedly, Sidharth had agreed to abide by the contract with the makers which included him to be a part of the show till January 2020.

According to media reports, he also had a chat with the team who then decided to increase his remuneration to make him stay on the show for the extended time. Sidharth reportedly gets Rs 9 lakhs per week for his stint on the show and now, owing to the extension, he will be getting more than that. 

Sidharth is one of the most popular contestants this season

The contestant has managed to stay in the buzz every week, be it for his fights or for his fun banter with housemate Shehnaaz Gill.
