Salman Khan is not only one of the highest paid actors in the country, but also one of the richest celebrities in the world. But all this happened much later. For all those who feel the actor had it easy to make a place for him in the industry only because he had a family lineage, think again! His success story is nowhere related to the N word Kangana Ranaut uttered last year. And we can tell you why!
For someone who charges a bomb today was only paid a meagre Rs 75 as his first salary. Shocked? That’s a fact! In one of his media interactions, this is what Salman said about getting his first salary, and how the pay-cheques kept on increasing, “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. 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.”
Well, the same man now has his name in the Forbes for being one of the highest paid actors in the world. On the work-front, this is what Salman Khan’s future filmography looks like- Race 3, Bharat, Kick 2 and Dabangg 3.
