SRK doubles up fee for ad after learning Salman was the first choice
Just when we thought that the war between two Khans has died down, here comes the latest news on SRK-Sallu…
Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan have been in a one-upmanship game for long now, be it at the box office or otherwise. The warring Khans off-late seemed to have let go off their dushmani and were even spotted exchanging warm bear hugs. But, there’s more here than meets the eye.
If Karan Johar picked the Jai Ho actor over best buddy for his much-delayed film Shuddhi, SRK too stepped into Salman’s shoes for an endorsement deal. We hear that Sallu was the first choice as the face of a pan masala brand that finally went to the Happy New Year actor. A little birdie chirps that Shahrukh wasn’t very certain about the product. As soon as he learnt that Sallu miyaan was also being considered he was suddenly keen to take it up, but not without upping his remuneration. So SRK got a hefty deal of rupees 20 crore to step in for SK.
We wonder if Salman too demanded a similar treatment from KJo for taking up a film that was offered to everyone from Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh to Shahrukh. Well, looks like the Khan war is after all turning out to be an expensive affair for everybody around them, right ?
