The latest addition to actor Salman Khan’s kitty of endorsements is a footwear brand. For the commercial that is currently on air, the actor has supposedly been paid over Rs 2 crore. And that’s not all. In addition, a portion of the sales from the collection will be donated to his charity, Being Human.
A source close to the actor tells us, “Salman has been paid somewhere between Rs 2 crore to Rs 5 crore.”
Apparently, the shoot of the commercial was delayed because Salman wasn’t too pleased with the script that was initially presented to him. “He wanted a few changes, which were promptly made. After which, they immediately fixed the dates,” adds the source.
But even getting time from the actor was not easy as he has been busy promoting his upcoming film, Ek Tha Tiger, while shooting for brother Arbaaz Khan’s Dabangg 2. The source adds, “He’s also been travelling a lot, so fixing one particular day took a while. But it all worked out.”
