Apna Time Kab Aaega? These Top 8 TV Actors Are Making Millions, While I Am Still Struggling To Pay Rent

It's true. If you are a millennial, the harsh realities of life will have caught up with you a while ago and you will know that paisa is of utmost importance, especially on days when your landlord knocks and says you are behind on rent. Yet again. 
These TV actors, however, are far from this situation, because TBH, they make a lot of money. Like a LOT. And how much would that be? See for yourselves as you browse through the top paid TV actors in the Indian industry.
Caution: not for the fainthearted, you guys.

What: 1.5-2 lakh per episode 


Rumour has it that post her reality TV stint, the actress's earnings have gone up to a whopping 2 lakh (per episode) for her current role in the popular soap Kasautii Zindagii Kay. Not to forget the public appearances, deals, endorsements and more. Sigh!


2. Mishal Raheja

What: 1.6 to 2 lakh per episode 


This young actor who currently stars in a prime time TV show called Ishq Ka Rang Safed is the next on our list. Of course, it's not Mishal Raheja's first gig; the actor has previously starred in several popular TV shows as well as tried his hand at a few films. 


3. Ram Kapoor

What: 1.25-1.5 lakh per episode 


Remember Ram Kapoor? Of course, you do! The polished actor has worked in a number of movies too—Baar Baar Dekho and Student of The Year—to name a few, along with his many, many TV shows in the past years. With a list that long, it's understood he earns quite a bit. 


4. Ronit Roy

What: 1.25-1.5 lakh per episode 


Some actors age like fine wine and the multifaceted Ronit Roy is one such guy. The 53-year old actor has worked in a number of TV shows such as Kasautii Zindagii Kay's original version and Adaalat, amongst others. He has also proved his mettle in Bollywood films such as Ugly and Udaan. We wouldn't be surprised if he earns more than what is suggested in reports, TBH. 


5. Sakshi Tanwar

What: 1.25 lakh per episode 


Sakshi Tanwar needs no introduction. For anyone who has seen Indian television in the '90s and later, the actress is not a new face. TV shows such as Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki and 24 are proof that she can catch your attention in both mainstream television and the emerging new-age shows. And not that it needs reminding, but her performance in the movie Dangal speaks volumes about her acting prowess. 


6. Divyanka Tripathi

What: 1-1.5 lakh per episode 


She is a household name since quite a few years now, with her show Ye Hai Mohabbatein being immensely popular, so it's only natural that Divyanka Tripathi features in our list of highest paid TV actors in India. Unsurprisingly, the actress was ranked 94 in Forbes' Highest Earning Indian Celebs, with a massive earning of Rs 7.80 crores in 2018. Let that sink in! 


7. Karan Patel

What: 1.10 lakh per episode


Starring in the same show as Divyanka Tripathi and making it to the list of top-paid TV actors is Karan Patel, whose prior shows include Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki, Kkavyanjali and many more. For someone who has been making it large since 2003 in the television industry, we aren't surprised to see him here!


8. Mohit Raina

What: 1 lakh per episode 


You will remember the hunk for his portrayal of Lord Shiva in a popular mythological show and more recently, as an army officer in the movie Uri, but Mohit Raina has been around for long enough and man, aren't we happy to have him here. With his work in movies being recognised, it's hardly a surprise to see what the actor's fee is. 


Are you surprised? Are you shocked? Heaven knows we are!
