Salman Khan To Host A TV Show

Bollywood hunk Salman Khan has joined the league of superstars who have taken notice of the vast potential, the small screen can offer.

After Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, will host a reality show on Sony Entertainment Television.

What’s more interesting is the amount being paid to him for the job.

“Salman will receive Rs 89 crores ($22m) for 104 episodes. The format of Salman’s show is almost ready, but the channel is keeping it under wraps right now.”

Now that is huge, even considering the fan-following the guy commands. I guess, he’s competing with Shah Rukh, who’s rumoured to have charged 1 crore per episode for Kaun Banega Krorepati 2.

Salman’s show, by the way, will be the competitor of Star Plus’ new show Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain?, hosted by SRK only. This show is based on the famous US show, Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?

Apart from the content which promises to be mind-blowing , this kind-hearted quality of Salman is what is expected to see the show through.

When contacted, Salman’s father, Salim Khan, said, I don’t get into Salman’s work. Meanwhile, Albert Almeida (Executive VP and Business Head, SET India) simply quipped, No comments.
