Salman Khan the highest paid actor in Bollywood?
After the success of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, Salman Khan has become the king of box-office. 100 crore stamp has been affixed on him and filmmakers are desperate to get his dates. After doing back to back action oriented movies, he is now inclined towards romantic movies. He has been flooded with film offers and makers are ready to pay him any amount he demands. Filmmaker Subhash Ghai who worked with Salman Khan in ‘Yuvraaj’ is ready to sign him with a whopping amount of Rs 100 crore for an action film.
He has two films on hand now. He is working on one of the film and will work on the other film with Salman next year. "I am returning to direction. I have two films... one with Salman that I will start next year and other I will start shooting this year," Ghai told.
After the failure of ‘Yuvvraaj’, Ghai repented that he cast Salman in a romantic thriller and not in an action packed film.
"After Wanted he has emerged as the new action hero. Audience likes to see him in this zone. It would be foolish on my part to make romantic kind of films with him. We made a mistake by casting him in Yuvvraj," Ghai said.
"I have signed Salman for my film. Considering Salman's superstar status and the love that he has got for doing action films, I would be making an action-masala kind of movie. He is Superman Salman. We are working on the script," he added.
"He has other commitments. So once he is done with all of them. We will start working next year," Ghai said.
It is also heard that producer Ramesh Taurani has signed Salman Khan with an whopping price of Rs 100 crore. A source informs, “As expected Ek Tha Tiger has sent
the cash registers ringing and many filmmakers have been seen visiting Salman’s
residence to make a film with him. However, Taurani, who has earlier worked
with Salman and has had him signed since the past couple of years, is very keen
that they do a film together."
"A couple of days back, he met Salman and offered him Rs. 100 crore for a film. Taurani is aware that the actor’s last three films have done business near to Rs. 150 crore net and that’s why he is ready to take the gamble,” the source was quoted by the tabloid.
Taurani however denied the price quoted, “Salman is already signed with me and this is not the right figure. He will be doing a film in 2013 with us and details are being worked out.”
