Mumbai: Trust Salman Khan to be the rallying point of all business when it comes to Bollywood and India. As the superstar is increasingly being referred to as the ingredient that lets filmmakers gain more than 100 crore per movie, news has it that Sallu has gotten even more expensive this time around!

After Khan’s latest offering ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ gained the status of an epidemic in the country, Salman Khan has now been signed on for a film for an incredible amount of money – 100 crore! Filmmaker Ramesh Taurani is the man behind this exceedingly generous offer, and seems like the success of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ is what has made Taurani offer Salman the aforementioned amount.

In conversation with a tabloid, a source revealed the details, “As expected, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ has sent the cash registers ringing and many filmmakers have been seen visiting Salman’s residence to make a film with him. However, Taurani, who has earlier worked with Salman and has had him signed since the past couple of years, is very keen that they do a film together.”

“A couple of days back, he met Salman and offered him Rs. 100 crore for a film. Taurani is aware that the actor’s last three films have done business near to Rs. 150 crore net and that’s why he is ready to take the gamble,” added the source.

However, when contacted by the tabloid, Taurani had something different to say. He agreed to the fact that he had signed Salman, but denied the amount as being 100 crore.

As they say, let’s wait and watch!
