Will ‘Dus Ka Dum’ Makers Shell Out Rs 2.5 Crore Per Episode For Salman Khan?

November 10, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Bollywood star Salman Khan has become a sought after hero since the grand success of his last film Dabangg. The star has also realized his worth and started demanding a fee hike for any television show. The Dabangg Khan has reportedly asked for a whopping sum of Rs 2.5 crore per episode to host money-churning show ‘Dus Ka Dum’.

The earlier two seasons of the show was hosted by the actor himself but this time he will be very expensive for the channel. Salman has reportedly said that he would return to the show only if he is paid the said amount, which is almost 51% more than what he was paid for the last two seasons of the show.

A source confirmed the news saying that the channel earlier paid him Rs 1.65 crore per episode in the earlier seasons. But the reports are contrasting as it says that Salman charged only Rs 89 crore for the total 104 episodes of the first season. But the source said that the figure was only portrayed for media.

Salman seems to have planned to break all the records by any other Bollywood star by demanding this huge amount. He is now hosting Colors’ popular reality show ‘Bigg Boss Season 4’. Sallu has already broken the records made by veteran stars like Amitabh Bachchan and superstar Shah Rukh Khan. He has demanded much more than his present fees for ‘Bigg Boss 4’ in which he is reportedly being paid Rs 2 crore per episode. However, this is a package deal, which involves various public appearances and other promotional activities.

We hope Sallu successfully breaks all records with ‘Dus Ka Dum’ this season!
