Washington D.C. [USA], Mar. 2 (ANI): The five original stars of popular CBS sitcom 'The Big Bang Theory', which is expected to have a two-season renewal, are trying to earn better pay for actresses Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch. Variety reports, the show's original cast members - Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg- have reportedly taken pay cuts of $1 lakh per episode to get fellow actors a raise. The sitcom made its way to the television record books in 2014 when the five stars landed the elusive $1 million-per-episode paycheck but would now make $100 thousand less per episode in a potential 11th and 12th seasons, reports People Magazine.
