Why so much interest in my salary, asks Salman
He is one of the highest paid actors of Bollywood, but actor Salman Khan (right) doesn’t understand the hullabaloo over his pay scale as he says his salary should not concern anyone but him.
The actor will be back on the small screen as the host of a TV reality show with a ‘double trouble’ theme.
Has his pay cheque ‘doubled’ as well? “I have no interest in your salary then why do have an interest in my salary,” Salman responded during an interview. However, the son of veteran writer Salim Khan asserted that his remuneration is used for a good cause.
“Anyway, even if my salary increases, it doesn’t stay with me. It goes into Being Human. So, it is used for a good cause,” added the 49-year-old who will be seen in Sooraj Barjatiya’s next alongside actor Sonam Kapoor.
He insists that the problems that he goes through do not impact his films. “I have been always been going through hard times, but that doesn’t affect my work,” he says.
When the problems Salman was going through at the time of shoot were brought up, he promptly replied, “Whenever I go through a difficult time in my life, my work in films becomes that much better. So remember that, and please don’t let those difficult times hamper the release of my film, because we have worked a lot for this film in that difficult time,” he says.
Despite a court sentencing him to five years jail in a rash driving case, Salman’s Kabir Khan directorial Bajrangi Bhaijaan, that released in August, became one of the recordbreaking films at box office. His conviction was later suspended and he was granted bail.
“I am still going through it and keep on going through it. That’s my share of karma,” he adds.
