We were have returned from the Kalash area after spent 4/5 days there. There we spoke to School teacher who was a Kalash about the population of Kalash people and he said that it was about 3,500 (three thousand and five hundred). This gentleman, Iqbal Shah, is a University graduate so I feel like believing his statement. I thought I will share this with you.
