The actors of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah are happily enjoying their professional career. From Dilip Joshi to Raj Anadkat, they have all gained unprecedented fame. Not only their reel, but their real life has been a constant talking point among viewers. Today we present to you the huge salaries of Amit Bhatt and Mandar Chandwadkar.
As most know, Amit plays the role of Champaklal Chacha in TMKOC. He leaves everyone cracked with his arrogant side. On the other hand, Mandar plays Atmaram Bhide and his cranky nature is known to all. Despite the age difference, an important fact is that the two supporting characters are paid almost the same amount.
According to a DNA report, Mandar Chandwadkar receives a salary of Rs 80,000 per episode. That’s a huge sum, isn’t it? Although less than Dilip Joshi aka Jethalal 1.5 lakh per episode, but the numbers are something that most actors don’t even get on a monthly basis.
Amit Bhatt aka Champaklal Gada is also paid between 70,000 and 80,000 per episode of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. This is almost equal to the amount paid to Atmaram Bhide.
Meanwhile, Amit recently started being a part of a different show and said he was afraid to experiment.
While appearing on the Moi blog’s YouTube channel, Amit Bhatt said, “Sach batau toh 12 saal bohot lamba time hai. Isse kya hua hai ki boriyat nahi aayi hai mais darr lagta hai ki logo ki dimag mein ek kirdaar ki ek image hojati hai. Aap (interviewer) jo bol rahi hai ki ye karna hai woh karna hai, toh uss sab by ab taala laga hai. Kyu ki aisa hai ki aage chal ke aisa kya karenge ki shayad ye jo image hai bani hui usko kahi logo ke dil mein thais na pohche. “
(To be honest 12 years is a long time. I’m not bored, but now I’m afraid that a character’s image has been stored in people’s minds. So all the other options are now locked. It’s a tough call to select any other character that shouldn’t harm the image that has been created in people’s minds.)
