Salman keeps his commitment; turns down lucrative offer
‘Once I make a commitment, then I don’t even listen to myself’ is not just one of Salman’s famous dialogues but seems to be his life mantra as well. The actor, who is rarely known to reel under pressure, gave away a very lucrative chance to judge a TV show. And this all occurred after the channel he currently works with raised major objections to him associating with a competitive channel.
Industry is abuzz with reports that Salman was offered a whooping sum to judge a reality dance show titled ‘Zara Nachke Dikha’. And even though Salman had given his nod, he had to back out at the last moment as the channel that airs Dus Ka Dum with the actor as its host raised an objection.
Confirming the news a source told a daily, “Salman spoke to the channel that airs Dus Ka Dum but they were unwilling to let Salman be seen on a competing channel. So they politely but firmly told Salman to forget about judging Zara Nachke Dikha. The actor had no choice but to comply.”
Talking about the incident, Vasudha Jha, a senior official of the channel that will air Zara Nachke Dikha, said, “Yes, we couldn’t get Salman. Though he was pretty excited about the offer, he had to check with the channel that airs Dus Ka Dum. They said they could only allow it if Zara Nachke Dikha goes on air after the next season of Dus Ka Dum winds up. Waiting that long was not possible. Right now, we are in talks with Preity Zinta and Saif Ali Khan.”
