Buzz has it that post the record-breaking success of Ek Tha Tiger, Salman Khan has been signed for a whopping Rs. 100 cr by producer Ramesh Taurani. If the report is true, Salman would become the highest paid actor in Bollywood.
A source told Mid Day: “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.
When contacted by the Mumbai tabloid, this is what Taurani had to say: “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.”
