We were very kicked yesterday because we found out that Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar will be hosting the Filmafare Awards this year. However, in a weird plot twist, Salman Khan will be hosting it now. According to a report in DNA, Salman has replaced SRK as Filmfare’s host this year and he’s charging a whooping sum of 2.5 crores for it!
A source was quoted saying:
The anchoring of the award functions has become tedious to do and watch. How many combinations can one watch Kapil Sharma and Manish Paul in? Salman is a masterstroke. He is popular and Bigg Boss has proved what a fabulous host he is. He was pursued relentlessly and the pay is close to 2.5 crores!
That’s more than 1 crore per hour!
However, I’m told that this is just a rumour and SRK is very much the anchor for the night. He’ll be joined by Karan Johar and Kapil Sharma.
Which Khan do you want to see host the Filmfare awards? Tell me in the comments below :)
