According to reports, Salman Khan has not charged a single penny for his appearance in Godfather.
A source close to the development of the film said:
“The makers of Godfather were keen to pay a handsome amount to Salman as they expect some footfalls in Hindi belts due to his presence.
“However, the actor was clear from the first day that he will be doing this film due to his love and respect for Chiranjeevi.”
Salman Khan recently released a teaser for the third instalment of the Tiger franchise.
Tiger 3, which also features Katrina Kaif, is scheduled to release on April 21, 2023.
The actor announced the news on social media and wrote: “Let’s take care of ourselves. Tiger 3 on 2023 Eid.
“Let’s all be there. Releasing in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.”
“Celebrate Tiger 3 with YRF only at a big screen near you on April 21, 2023.”
Salman Khan not only promoted his film but also gave a shoutout to Ajay Devgn’s Runway 34 with a special post.
Releasing a teaser of the film, Salman Khan wrote: “I couldn’t release any of my films on Eid this year, so I have requested my brother Ajay Devgn to come on Eid with the Eidi gift.
“We all will celebrate Eid and watch Runway 34.”
