Party with Salman Khan for Rs 1.75 crore?
This is what the actor demands to make an appearance at any event. Also, he needs chartered flights to and fro

With a string of hits to his credit, Salman Khan is not just one of the highest paid actors when it comes to films. He has reportedly been quoting a jaw-dropping Rs 1.75 crore to make an appearance at events. What’s more, the actor also wants to be ferried in chartered flights.
Reportedly, Salman, after the success of Wanted, Dabangg and Ready, has raised his fee to a whopping Rs 50 crore (which includes profit share).
But the box-office effect has rubbed off on the actor’s off-screen aura as well. According to an insider, recently when he was offered Rs 1 crore along with a chartered flight for a couple of events in Dubai, the actor flatly refused to take them up.
Insiders revealed that this sudden and staggering hike in remuneration is a brainwave of Salman’s manager Reshma Shetty.
According to reports, she was also the one who had convinced Salman to hike his fee for Dus Ka Dum and Bigg Boss.
Sources close to the actor told Mirror that more offers for events (business launch, birthdays, weddings) have started pouring in. “Everybody wants Salman to perform at their event. If one person fails to offer him the amount of money he asks, another will,” said the source.
But Salman’s spoils of success don’t stop at merely a price hike. Mirror has learnt that certain producers even consult the actor whether he wants the director of the film changed before he signs the project. And though, Salman does not push his choices, he does mention names of his favourite directors and asks the producers to select one.
