Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Aamir Khan, the trio, have always been clubbed together. Be it for rivalries or some other discussion; you together call them the Khans of Bollywood. Much later, even Saif Ali Khan joined the group as the fourth Khan, but much more hesitatingly. The Khan means the trio.

Interestingly, while all three of them turned superstars with their debut films, they all belong to the same number as far as their ages are concerned. While they have seen highs and lows and fought with each other in their young days, the good part is they have stuck around each other and today share a very mature and healthy relationship.

The three Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, and Aamir Khan, also command a certain respect and almost the same amount of money for their films. But it was always not the same.

In fact, once upon a time, when SRK was working with YRF for Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Aamir, and Salman were working for Dhoom 3 and Ek Tha Tiger, all of them secretly wanted to know how much the other was being paid.

The three Khans also made their debut on television as TV hosts in the late 2000s, and guess how much they were paid. Today, Salman Khan is being paid a fee as high as 12 crore to host Bigg Boss. Guess how much he paid for his debut season? Also, was it the highest hosting fee amongst the Khans? Stick with us till the end to find out.

Salman Khan’s TV Debut

The Tiger actor made his debut as a TV host in 2010 with Bigg Boss 4, which was eventually won by Shweta Tiwari. He replaced Amitabh Bachchan as the show host. The Dabangg actor was paid 2.5 crore per week to host the reality show.

Shah Rukh Khan’s TV Debut

Although SRK started his career in TV, his debut as a reality show host came along with Kaun Banega Crorepati when he replaced Amitabh Bachchan for the third season of the quiz-based game show. He was offered a whopping 2.5 crore per episode to host the season in 2007, much before Salman’s Bigg Boss.

Aamir Khan’s TV Debut

Mr. Perfectionist made his debut on TV with Satyameva Jayate. The actor charged 3 crore per episode for the show that aired in 2012. His fee was 20% higher than Shah Rukh Khan & Salman Khan’s hosting fees.

So, was Aamir Khan the highest-paid TV host for their debut season? Well, let us do some math. Salman Khan earned 35 crore from Bigg Boss 4, hosting 14 weekends and getting paid 2.5 crore for each weekend. The Thugs of Hindostan actor earned 88% more than Salman Khan – 66 crore for the first season of Satyameva Jayate, which aired 22 episodes. However, Shah Rukh Khan earned 132.5 crore for hosting 53 episodes of Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 3! A whopping 278% higher than Salman Khan’s fee and 100% higher than Aamir Khan’s fee!

We guess it is always the King who rules the kingdom!
