Morning morning my marvelous marzipans! How are you treating the bheegi bheeti rutt? I’m taking it easy in my den and don’t care if it pours thundering typhoons and blistering barnacles outside for the next few days. As for the resultant cold cold climate, I’ve enough garma garam gossip. So read on my sweetums…

For starters, it seems like Salman Khan hast lost it again… And like the previous time years ago, it has proven to be Shah Rukh Khan’s gain, yet again. Well, Sher Lock Holmes has found out that a paint brand offered the Dabangg actor an endorsement deal for a considerably good fee.

And keeping his artistic inclinations in mind, the brand custodians had even conceptualised a campaign whim him as a painter to kick off their association. While Sallu was impressed with the idea, he felt he deserved a fatter pay cheque, I’m informed.

However, the paint company guys didn’t think so. Apparently, they felt that if they had to pay more, then they might as well rope in Shah Rukh instead. And that’s what they did. After a series of discussions, the Ra.One superhero inked the endorsement.

Sher Lock bhai tells me that it was a commercial for this paint brand that SRK was shooting at Bandra’s Mehboob Studio… Where Sallu was doing interviews to promote his forthcoming film around the same time. Hmmm.
