Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan,who is making his television debut as a dance reality show judge,is the highest paid film star on small screen.

The shooting for “Just Dance”,the dance reality show on Star Plus will start next month where the 37-year-old film star will judge contestants along with choreographers Farah Khan and Vaibhavi Merchant.

Hrithik is looking forward to a successful inning on the small screen after his two previous films ‘Kites’ and ‘Guzaarish’ bombed at the box office.

“Only after biggest failures come biggest success,” Hrithik had said at the launch last month. About reports that he is being paid approximately Rs 2 crore per episode,Hrithik had said,”I thought I am paid well.”

But sources close to the actor claim that the Hrithik is indeed the highest paid actor on television. “He gets Rs two crore per episode. Whereas Salman Khan shot for his last TV show only during the weekends and would wrap up two episodes in a single day and take home a pay packet of Rs 2.5 crore,” sources said.
