The actor’s re-entry on the show has come at a huge price
We were shocked when Mishal Raheja announced that he was quitting Ishq Ka Rang Safed a few days ago. The reason behind the same was said to be the ‘insufficient remuneration’ being paid to him. Days later, it was announced that he is indeed staying on the show as Viplav Tripathi. What’s shocking is the amount the actor has charged in his new contract. Mishal will be paid Rs 1.6 lakh per day, which is one of the highest amounts being paid to TV actors in the present scenario. It puts him much ahead of many popular actors including the likes of Vivian Dsena and Shabbir Ahluwalia. It should be noted that the show airs seven days a week, which is a lot of work for any actor.
It seems the makers agreed to his demands due to demand from fans. People loved the couple Dhaani (Eisha Singh) and Viplav (Mishal). However, Eisha left the show as she did not want to play the role of a mother to a five-year-old girl. The producers obviously could not have both the actors quitting the show and had a conversation with Mishal.
The actor gave a quote to Bombay Times stating, “I believe I deserve the amount I have quoted for a seven-day telecast.” We feel that many actors will agree with Mishal given the workload and stress that a seven day show involves. The actor is known for his histrionic abilities right from his debut show, Laagi Tujhse Lagaan, where he played the role of Dutta Bhau.
