BOLLYWOOD: He is one of the highest paid actors today but superstar Salman Khan reveals his first-ever salary was merely Rs 75.
Salman occupied the second spot on Forbes list of the ‘Highest Paid Actors in Bollywood’ for the year 2017.
He also became the highest paid TV actor with reports suggesting that he is getting Rs 11 crore per episode for hosting the 11th season of reality show “Bigg Boss”.
While the 51-year-old actor is yet to comment on the reports, he remembers what he was paid during his intial days.
Salman said, “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.”
