It is known that Burning Star Sampoornesh Babu has to pay a huge amount as penalty for leaving the Big Boss house midway. Sampoo forced evicted himself from the show by threatening to commit suicide in the house with the kitchen knives. And he became the second contestant to be eliminated from the Bigg Boss show after actress Jyothi.
Normally, if someone gets eliminated from the show, he will not have to pay anything. But, if someone opts out on his own, he will have to forfeit the security deposit of some amount decided by the Bigg boss organisers. In the Hindi version of the Big Boss, those leaving the show midway have to pay Rs 50 lakh. Otherwise, they may have to face legal action.
While the contractual clauses in Telugu version are not known, we do know that Sampoornesh Babu has to pay an unspecified amount in addition to the deposit amount.He now may have to pay Rs 16 lakh penalty to the show organizers for breaking the agreement.
As per the agreement, the contestants have to stay in the house for a maximum period of 70 days until and unless the Bigg Boss evicts them out. The Burning star could have earned Rs 70 lakhs if he had stayed for the total 70 days but he is now facing a penalty of Rs 16 lakhs instead.
