New Delhi, March 26 (IANS) Sony Entertainment Television has denied that Bollywood actor Salman Khan has been roped in to host a reality show for the channel for a whopping Rs.890 million. “We have no information regarding the show and we don’t know who has leaked this news,” a well-placed source in Sony TV told IANS.
Another source, however, indicated there is a possibility that Synergy Adlabs might be producing the show.
Siddhartha Basu, head of Synergy Adlabs, told IANS: “Till the shows are officially announced, we are not in a position to confirm what we are producing, for whom and with whom.”
According to media reports, Salman will be paid Rs.890 million for doing 104 episodes for the show.
Reports also say that Salman’s presence in the show is an answer to Star Plus’ game show “Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain?” where Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will play a quizmaster.
