Also in talks for a film for KJo’s banner
Prithwish Ganguly (BOMBAY TIMES; March 29, 2011) Karan Johar is wooing Salman Khan. And has succeeded to an extent. It is learnt that the actor has agreed to be part of Karan’s TV show in its third season. The last time KJo asked him to sit on the infamous couch, the actor said he would do it only if he was given Rs 50 lakh for his charity foundation. The My Name Is Khan director told him that the channel wouldn’t pay but he would be happy to shell out the money from his own pocket. However, the talks fizzled out.
Now KJo who is shooting the final few episodes for this season, asked Salman for the last time if he would appear on the show, and the temperamental actor said he would do it, and also gave temporary dates for the shoot, either 30th or 31st March. Apparently, Karan and the channel have donated over Rs 50 lakh to Salman’s charity foundation. Incidentally, no other guest on the show has been paid for making an appearance.
According to sources, the filmmaker has also offered a role to the actor, which he is considering. This is interesting because so far Khan who lives in Galaxy has been wary of Karan because of his friendship to the Khan who lives in Mannat. Now that the director has managed to get Sallu to say yes to the show, and a ‘maybe’ to the film, next step is a patch between the warring Khans? Let’s hope so.
