Meanwhile, Aam Aadmi Party member Kumar Vishwas announced on his Facebook page on Wednesday that he’d participate in the show only if he’s paid Rs 21 crore as he wants to donate the sum to a war widows fund. "The channel cannot afford to pay him so much... they don’t pay Rs 21cr to Salman Khan (the host)!"said a source from the channel.
