IPL 2024 has officially taken over the nation, and the cricket entertainment season will be full of excitement and anxiety for fans. Some will be stressed for their favorite team, while others might be praying for their favorite cricketers. To add to this excitement is the elaborate set of commentators, and Vishal Aditya Singh will take over the Bhojpuri commentary this season as well.

Vishal is a star from the Indian television industry who shot to fame with his stint in reality shows Bigg Boss & Khatron Ke Khiladi. The actor, who has a distinct dialect, is one of the commentators for this season’s premiere league.

Vishal Aditya Singh won hearts with the way he talks in the reality shows as well and was one of the most loved contestants who entertained with his antics and statements as well. Now, he will entertain his audiences through commentary of the IPL 2024 matches in Bhojpuri.

Vishal’s Reported Fee For IPL

According to a list by Star Sports, quoted via Jagran, the regional commentators this year will be paid somewhere between 68.43 lakh and 1.29 crore. While the initial payments will be made to the less experienced commentators, the higher range is for the seniors and seasoned experts.

Hindi Commentators Paid Much Higher

Seasoned cricketer Harbhajan Singh will be paid 3.08 crore for commentary in Hindi. So, Vishal will be paid only 22% of what Harbhajan, Irfan Pathan, and other cricketers will earn for Hindi commentary. The starting range for Hindi commentators is also 68 lakh which might be Vishal’s earning this IPL season.

The list of Bhojpuri commentators includes Ravi Kishan, Vishal Aditya Singh, Mohd Saif, Shivam Singh, Satya Prakash, Gulam Hussain, Saurabh Kumar, Shalinee Singh, Ashutosh Aman, and Sumit Kumar. Out of this lot, Ravi Kishan will surely be paid 1.29 crore. Reports suggest that last year, the Bhojpuri commentators were paid 20K – 30K per match.

For the unversed, Bhojpuri commentary was introduced in the IPL 2023 and had a brilliant success rate, with audiences tuning in to listen to the match in their local dialect. Meanwhile, the Bhojpuri commentators have been making the match as lively as possible with their puns, digs, proverbs, phrases, and idioms.

So get ready and gear up for some “Killa Ukhaad Ke Chilla Udhaaye Diye!”
