"Well, I earned my first salary from my first television show itself i.e. "Santaan". I don't actually remember doing something special out of it. But the first time you receive a salary is very special, so all I did was give it to my parents, like everyone does".
"I earned my first ever salary from a modeling show in Bhopal for which I was a part of. This was about 9 years back. Since it was my first pay, I gifted it to my parents, just like we have seen it in movies. My parents felt so proud about it, but then they gave it back to me. It was really special for me so I saved it in my piggy bank."
"I started my career at the age of 17 with my debut in Balaji's Kahe Naa Kahe. I received my first salary after working for 60 days. I cannot disclose the amount but I got a car from that money.
"It is my fondest memory that I cherish even today. I used to do a lot of plays back then and it was around in 2005 that I first got my first pay which was Rs. 300. It was not exactly a salary but a token of appreciation from my lovely seniors; therefore I kept it in my treasure".

I still remember I was on cloud nine when I received my first salary cheque. There was so much I wanted to do with that money, that I managed to buy gifts for all my family members and myself. I'm good at savings, so even though I partied with my friends, I put aside a little money as savings too."
"I used to live in Spain during my early growing up years. There was a supermarket near our house and I would make drawings on a paper with crayons and sell them at that supermarket. The foreigners there were sweet enough to buy my paintings and drawings. Though, I won't term it as a full-fledged salary, it was my first earning as I used to spend that amount to buy chocolates for myself."
"I got my very first salary from my first show Remix in which I played the role of Ranveer Sisodia. Since it was my first hard earned money, I gave it to my parents. The happiness one experiences while handing over the first salary to parents is priceless."
