Television's highest-paid actors

Ekta Kapoor's feud with Smriti Irani has apparently gained momentum. The latest buzz is that Smriti left Balaji Telefilms because she wanted a hike in her salary.

A Mumbai tabloid reported that Smriti demanded Rs 300,000 per day, three times the amount she reportedly gets.

We decided to take a look at the highest-paid television actors today, and Smriti -- even with her present pay -- topped the list.

Here are the top five earners:

Name: Smriti Irani
Claim to Fame: Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi
Character: Tulsi Virani
Her fee, industry talk has it, is Rs 100,000 per day

'The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.' It's this adage that Smriti Zubin Irani, also known as Tulsi Mihir Virani, has lived her life by.

Actress, producer and politician, this former Miss India contestant has come a long way.

During her struggling years, Smriti worked at McDonalds, served burgers, appeared for countless auditions and even cleaned floors.

That's what you call a rags to riches story.
