Bigg Boss 12’s press conference was held today and Salman Khan literally killed it with his swag. The surprise announcement at the event was that of Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa going inside the house. The couple seem to be on a roll. After doing reality shows like Nach Baliye 8 and Khatron Ke Khiladi 9, they’re set for the Bigg Boss 11 house. Salman, revealed their names and declared, “No, no, Priyanka Chopra is NOT entering the house and you know why; she is not doing Bharat but yes Bharti is going in the house.” Well, this was not a wisecrack from the star. Bharti confirmed her participation saying, “I don’t want to become a tantrum queen. Haarsh has a lot of work. Even if he gets eliminated, I want to win the show.” (Also Read: Exclusive!

The couple are hugely in demand for reality shows and channels are also willing to shell out huge amounts for them. We had reported how they commanded Rs 30 lakh per episode for Nach Baliye 8. It is totally well deserved as she has a terrific fan base. She is also amongst the 100 highest paid entertainers in the country in the Forbes List. A source told Bollywood Life, “After Danny D and Mahika Sharma, they are the highest paid on the show. Bharti will be getting Rs 30 lakh per week while Haarsh will get around Rs 15 lakhs. So, together they’ll make half a crore every week.”
