|Soon we could see Salman Khan on Kofee With Karan but it will come at a personal cost to the show’s host Karan Johar.
Before you start wondering what Salman has demand? It seems that Salman has asked for Rs.50 lakhs to appear on the show, but the do-good Khan has made the monetary demand not for himself but for his charity Being Human. Karan is so keen to have Salman on the show that he is even willing to doll out the cash himself.
Says an industry source, "Sometime back, Karan had asked Bhai (Salman) to come on the show. And Bhai told him that he was willing to come on the show if he was paid. Karan pointed out that none of the celebrities were paid to be on the show.
To which Salman said that even he didn't want the money (Rs 50 lakh) for himself, but for his charity Being Human.
KJo said that it was not a norm to pay actors to be on the show and the channel would not shell out big bucks for it, but he would give a personal cheque to the actor, because he was keen to have him on the show. Knowing Bhai's sense of humour, one can't be sure if he was serious or joking about wanting the money."
Other guests expected to appear on the show this season include Aamir Khan with wife Kiran Rao, and Akshay Kumar with wife Twinkle Khanna.
We wonder if Karan can fashion a patch up between Salman and Shahrukh.
