Salman Khan himself revealed the same in an interview with PTI. The Dabangg actor shared, “My first salary was, I think, about Rs 75. I was dancing behind in some show in the Taj hotel. One of my friends was dancing there so he took me (and I did it) just for fun.”
He continued, “Then it went up to Rs 750 for Campa Cola (a soft drink brand) and then it was Rs 1,500 for the longest time. Then I got paid Rs 31,000 for Maine Pyar Kiya, which was then increased to Rs 75,000 later.”
