Getting the first paycheque is a big deal for any one of us. We have so many dreams and aspirations that we wish to fulfill when we get paid for the first time for a hard day or a hard month’s work. So, this time, we decided to ask our talented and beautiful TV actors what they did when they received their first pay cheque.
Here is what they told:
My first paycheque was for 750 rupees. When I got paid, I took my Mom to a veg restaurant.
It was Rs 5000. I bought a sari for my mom with the money and deposited the rest Rs 3000 in my bank account.
My first earnings were rupees 4,250. I earned it when I did my summer job for a brand, selling high-end security locks and other equipment for homes. I was thrilled to see the amount and wanted to spend all of it on my parents by buying them clothes. But my mom asked me to keep 10% of the same for charity and the rest my father deposited the same in a savings account. I haven’t withdrawn money from that account ever. It’s still intact there. My parents wanted to teach me few valuable lessons in saving money and also doing my bit for the society.
When I was 13, I got my first cheque. I gave it to my mom and asked her to buy whatever she wanted. From then on, whatever I do is for my family.
I got my first pay when I did my first print ad about 17 years back in Kolkata for leading Telecom Company. It got paid 2500 rupees and it made feel like the king of the world. Being a momma’s boy, very obediently I handed it over to my mother. The entire family had a great feast, thanks to me!
I took a photocopy of my first paycheque; it’s still safe with me. I remember I had to travel to Kolkata for it, since there was a ramp fashion show with Peter England. It was my first assignment. I rremember I got paid 4,000 while I spent 7,000 on flights! But it was very special for me. I gifted wireless headphones to my mother with that.
I was a small child when I took painting classes as I had won a National Award. So, the kids used to come to learn from me. With the money, I bought a pen and some cosmetics for my mom and dad as I was too young to know better on their anniversary. I earned some 600 rupees.
My first paycheque was 10,000. I remember I got an IndusInd bank cheque. With the money, I bought Diwali gifts for my parents.
I gave the entire amount of my earning to my mother. My mother blessings are always with me.
