With  Navratri round the corner,
there's a lot of excitement among
TV stars. It's that time of the year
when they travel extensively and
make big bucks just by making appearances at the various dandiya
nights. Everyone from Sakshi Tanwar,  Hina Khan, Ronit Roy, Disha
Vakhani to Dilip Joshi are in great
demand. For every appearance
they make, they are paid anywhere
in the range of '2 lakh to '5 lakh,
depending on their popularity. Alist stars easily pocket over '5 lakh
the number may go up to 8
and the second rung artistes
charge around '2 lakh.
While the stars are busy raking
in the moolah,
the producers
of the TV shows face immense
problems because actors are unavailable for shoots. Says Rajan
Shahi, producer,  Yeh Rishta Kya
Kehlata Hai, "Hina is in great demand as the viewers connect with
her character Askhara. She's taking six days off during Navratri. I
understand that this is the time to
earn, but it causes
problems as we don't
have a bank of
episodes." Agrees
Sumeet Mittal, producer,  Punar Vivah,
saying it is all a part of
this business. "Most of
the time, we try to accommodate but sometimes, when we are really
tight on episode banks or artistes
give us a very short notice, we say
no," he clarifies.
However, Asit Kumarr Modi, producer,
Taarak Mehta Ka
Ooltah Chashmah
contends that
though it interferes
with the show, these
appearances are an
important way to
connect with the
and therefore he makes allowances. Manish
Raisinghani who plays Siddhant in
Sasural Simar Ka and will be flying
to Gujarat echoes this sentiment
adding that it also is a way to gauge
one's popularity. 
Hina's itinerary includes
Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Surat, Indore, Delhi and Rajasthan. "It's the
best way to see different places,
play garba, eat sumptuous food and
earn good money," she grins. 
Besides the individual stars, hot
on-screen and off-screen pairs like
Gurmeet Choudhury and wife Debina, Aamir Ali Sanjeeda Sheikh
and Nandish Sandhu Rashmi
Desai also are much sought-after.
As an actor under condition of
anonymity says, "With more channels and shows in the fray, actors
are a plenty, which is why organisers prefer spreading out their
celebrities over nine days rather
than spending a lot on one star."
Whatever the case, it is a winwin situation for the audiences
who will see their favourite star, up,
close, personal and who knows,
may even get to shake a leg with
them. What say, ramva chalo?
