Is Salman Khan the highest paid star on television?

The box office king has reportedly signed a staggering Rs 130 crore deal with Colors to shoot 26 episodes of the reality show Bigg Boss 7

Salman Khan is all set to create history. According to a leading tabloid report, the Dabangg actor has set a new benchmark as far as his revised remuneration – Rs 5 crore per episode – to host the popular reality show Bigg Boss 7 is concerned. Reportedly Sallu has charged a jaw-dropping total of Rs 130 crore from Colors, the hosting channel, and Endemol, the producers of the controversial reality show.

We are told that with this deal Sallu miyaan breaks his own previous record of Rs 2.5-3 crore per episode that he got for Bigg Boss season 6. Looks like the superstar believes in doubling his salary each year with every new season of the reality show! And this year it’s going to be a double whammy for Sallu fans, as the 48-year-old actor will play a double role as angel and devil as host for the series.

Some trade experts believe that this year Salman has charged a more substantial amount for his services because he’s playing two characters and they do not come for the price of one. So shooting takes more time, obviously, and he would need to put in greater effort. And acting responsibly and un-temperamentally, the super brat star will shoot two episodes in a day per week because he wants to finish the project before the court trial for the 2002 hit-and-run case he is involved in draws to a close. Keep it up, Sallu!
