Raveena Tandon is now the highest paid TV actress in India. Raveena was one of those 90s stars who were known more for their dancing skills than acting. Raveena was never in the same league of Kajol or Karisma Kapoor.
Raveena was not doing leading lady roles for a while now, but she is not sitting at home either. She is actually one of the most active over 40 actresses of India at the moment. Bollywood does not call her anymore, but to be honest, Raveena does not need Bollywood either.
Raveena Tandon started working on TV a long time ago. She took a little break in the middle.
Now she is back again in television. She will be the judge of dance reality show “Shine of India”. The show producers wanted Raveena badly, to make her say YES, they offered her 1.25 crores per episode.
Raveena said YES, but that is probably more because of her love to dance.
We have to salute her spirit. She is such a winner, rather than sitting at home and saying no to producers who are coming to her with good offers she is making things happen herself.
She has done many other TV shows earlier and some of them are ‘Simply Baatien With Raveena’, ‘Comedy Ka Maha Muqabala’, and ‘Chhote Miyan’. In this new show we will see her with the ace dance choreographer Saroj Khan and actor Govinda.
Now many bollywood actors are doing TV series and they are getting paid a hefty amount as their presence is adding star value to the shows along with doubling up the entertainment amount.
Actress Madhuri Dixit and Shilpa Shetty also appeared on reality shows previously and they were paid Rs. 1 crore for every episode.
I am waiting to see “Shahar Ki Ladki” back on TV again.
