Salman Khan's 1000 crore fee
There were strong reports of Salman Khan charging Rs 1000 crore for the entire duration of Bigg Boss. However, Khan rubbished the reports and called them baseless. He added that if he were to get such an amount, he would never ever work again.
" All those reports about my fees are untrue. If I ever get paid Rs 1,000 crore, I would never work. But there will be a day when I will be paid this amount. If I get paid this amount I have so many other expenses like lawyers that I actually need them. My lawyers are no less than Salman Khan. My earnings are not even one-fourth of it. These reports are read by the income tax and ED departments too and then when they come and check, they find out what's the reality."
