Movie buffs and Salman Khan fans alike are very much aware that he has been called one of highest paid Bollywood actors this year by earning a figure more than 200 crores this year.
However, given the kind of charm that Salman Khan has, it never really got him a high pay in his initial days.
Speaking about his first salary, The Tubelight actor spilled the beans at a recent event by saying, “My first salary was, I think, about Rs 75. I was dancing behind in some show in Taj hotel. One of my friends was dancing there so he took me (and I did it) just for fun.”
To which, he added, “Then it went up to Rs 750 for Campa Cola (a soft drink brand) and then it was Rs 1,500 for the longest time. Then I got paid Rs 31,000 for ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’, which was then increased to Rs 75,000 later,”
WHOA! Can you believe that the same man who was paid 75 rs. for his first gig is now rumored to be taking 11 crores per Bigg Boss episode? Hard work pays off and Salman Khan is proof.
On the work front, Salman Khan is busy wrapping up his much-awaited film Tiger Zinda Hai
