Reportedly, she was even being offered Rs 35 lakhs per week to be in the show.  However, the actor politely turned down the offer. Now, BollywoodBubble exclusively got to know that she was not offered Rs 35 lakhs but Rs 50 lakhs per week. In total if she stayed for 105 weeks, without winning as well, she would have earned Rs 7.5 crore; however, the Jalebi actor refused to take the offer. 

Going by the whopping amount, that is the highest the show has ever offered to any contestant. Given the fact that the winner takes home only Rs 50 lakhs. Meanwhile, Rhea has been keeping a low profile ever since she was granted bail last year after being in judicial custody for a month. An FIR was filed against her by her late boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput’s parents right after his demise. She was accused of money laundering as well as abetment to suicide. The actor was then arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau for her alleged connection to drugs.
