Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor will soon be seen on Indian television. The B-Town diva will soon make her debut with the latest edition of dance reality show Dance India Dance. And what, she will become the highest paid actor on Indian television.

Kareena Kapoor is one of three judges on Dance India Dance – Battle Of The Champions. Muusician Raftaar and choreographer Bosco Martis are the other two judges.

Replying to a query over her handsome fee, the Veere Di Wedding actress said she deserved it. “If a male judge is getting a certain amount, a female judge should also get the same. I got what I deserve for the hours I will be putting in,” she told Mid-Day.

It is still unclear to how much money she has charged for the show.

Kareena Kapoor says since she wanted to spend good time with her son Taimur, she negotiated fewer working hours for the show.

“I made it clear that I don’t work for more than eight hours because of my son (Taimur). Sometimes, I can make an exception of working up to 12 hours. The makers have been kind and worked out everything the way I wanted,” the actress said.

The actress debuted the silver screen with film Refugee in 2000. She was last seen last year in Veere Di Wedding, co-starring Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania.

Her next venture is Good News which stars Akshay Kumar, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani. She has also signed up for Karan Johar’s Takht.
