Salman Khan is on a roll. His last two films Dabangg and Ready are among the all-time blockbusters of Indian film industry and his acting fee has understandably shot up to a level that makes him the highest paid actor in Bollywood.
Buzz is that producer Boney Kapoor has shelled out a whopping Rs 10 crores to sign Salman Khan for the sequel of No Entry. The film is titled No Entry Mein Entry and will be directed by Anees Bazmee, director of ‘No Entry’ and also of ‘Ready’.
The project has been through a lot of teething problems due to differences between Boney Kapoor and Anees Bazmee. The latter apparently leaked the film’s original script to Sajid Nadiadwala who made Thank You out of it. Even Bazmee and Salman reportedly had a tiff while filming Ready in Bangkok.
But now, all the differences seem to have been ironed out. Bazmee is working on a new script. Boney Kapoor understands Salman Khan’s increased market value after the super successes of his last two films and did not object to the star’s higher acting fee. He reportedly paid between eight to ten crore rupees to Salman for doing No Entry Mein Entry.
If true, that makes Salman the highest paid actor in Bollywood.
A confirmation is still awaited from Boney Kapoor.
