Blockbuster star Salman Khan has set a new record by signing a Rs.500 crore deal with Star TV Network India for the television broadcast rights of his upcoming films.
Post 2009 blockbuster "Wanted (2009)", the 47-year-old's career is going from strength to strength. In the last five years, he has churned out a string of successful films - "Ready", "Dabangg", "Bodyguard", "Ek Tha Tiger" and "Dabangg 2" - all these films earned over Rs.100 crore at the box office.
Hemal Jhaveri, general manager at Star Gold, told IANS: "Yes, we have signed a deal with Salman Khan and whoever asks me why Salman, I would only say why not Salman Khan? His past box office record has been outstanding and his film, which has been premiered on TV, is exceptional."
"He still has the highest record for his film 'Bodyguard' which had the highest rating so far," he added.
According to the deal, the channel would own exclusive TV broadcast rights of Salman's all new films.
"The deal is from 2013 onwards where all his films in which he acts, produces or be part of, we will have the broadcast rights exclusively with us," said Jhaveri.
Salman, who is right now having some health issues and is likely to fly to the US for treatment, has handful of films in his kitty - "Kick", "No Entry Mein Entry" and Sooraj Barjatya's next untitled film among others. He will start shooting for them soon.

Can an 'Aum Aadmi' comprehend how much money is Rs 500 CRORE?
DOES SALMAN DESERVE THIS MUCH MONEY?
Salman's movies are hit because they are overwhelmingly aimed at 'chai wallahs' type of audience who go to watch his movies over and over!, Especially the people who sleep in shop doorways and on the pavement, even after running over many of them with his car, there are still plenty of them alive to go to watch his movies!
I know this is not related to the article but why is it that when someone honestly puts their opinion forward some people become rude and insulting???
everyone is entitled to their opinion and this is a FORUM please pick up a dictionary and learn the meaning. Thanks you'll be doing everyone a favour :)
Love you Salman and all the best, good look. You are simply the best and your a great actor. Im your no1 fan and love all your films. Hope you get well soon, all our prayers are with you.
Its 2013 and hope you get married this year, we all would love to see your wedding and see who is the lucky lady. Love you loads and take care. xxx

What lameness! I honestly think those movies were over-rated. I'm a fan of his previous work but movies such as ready etc are plain pathetic IMO
