Salman Khan has been voted the perfect father figure in a survey by matchmaking website Shaadi.
When asked who they felt would make the ideal Indian celebrity father, 39 percent of respondents voted for Khan.
“The poll reflects the mindset of today’s youth,” said exec Gourav Rakshit. “Although times are changing, qualities like generosity and masculinity are still admired as ‘fatherly’ traits amongst Indians.”
It’s been reported that the break up between Bipasha Basu & John Abraham may of been because of Bipasha’s desire to work with John’s long time rival Salman Khan!
“He was hurt that she was trying hard to get a film with Salman.” A source said.
“Despite public declaration from John and Salman that they are no longer enemies, the fact remains that they still despise each other. When he confronted Bips, she denied it and that got him more upset.”
Bipasha & John dated for 10 years and officially announced their split last week.
Salman Khan was speaking at a promotional event for his new movie Ready. Salman said that he planned to distribute a percentage of his salary to studio employees.
“I don’t work for money,” said Khan. “Even if I don’t get any remuneration, I am fine with it. Right now I want to give some portion of my income to the workers in the film industry, even if it is just half a percentage.”
Khan is reportedly the highest paid Bollywood star.
“These workers at Film City have been working for a long time. They have supported and helped us in every way possible during the making of films. So I would also help them in whatever way I can,” Salman commented.
Junior artists and behind-the-scenes technicians are reportedly paid a shift rate of 500 rupees a day (£3.50), and are not guaranteed daily work.
Salman Khan has reportedly agreed to star in Karan Johar’s next movie!
Karan has a long-standing working relationship with Salman’s alleged acting rival Shah Rukh Khan.
The Times of India, an insider said: “After Kurbaan, Rensil [D'Silva] is directing a fantasy-action caper on the lines of Ocean’s Eleven.
“When Karan Johar heard the script, he absolutely fell in love with it. Both Karan and Rensil felt Salman was perfect for the main part.”
Salman’s last project with Johar was the 1998 film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.

Who will you be rooting for?
It’s been reported that Salman Khan is now the highest paid actor in Bollywood after the success of his latest hit flick ‘Dabangg’ .
A source Times of India said “Actors keep saying that they have stopped charging a price because they are now taking home a share in the percentage of profits.
“The profit-sharing bit is right. But actors, especially those like Salman and Akshay Kumar, also charge a price and over and above it. They take home a share in the profits.”
The fee that Salman is charging for new movie Ready is claimed to be the highest amount ever asked by a Hindi film actor.
Salman Khan’s relationship with Katrina Kaif looks like it’s on the mend. Reports from India say that both Salman and Katrina have signed on for a Yash Raj Films movie and Katrina is even in talks to star in another movie, this time alongside Salman’s ‘arch enemy’, Shah Rukh Khan.
Katrina looks like she is still in Salman’s good books, not only did he get dancing with her in Farah Khan’s ‘Tees Maar Khan’ but she even came over to his house to celebrate his birthday in December last year.
Who would you prefer for Katrina Kaif? Ranbir Kapoor or Salman Khan!
