When it comes to showbiz, it’s all within the family now. As the world around us shrinks, the Hindi entertainment industry becomes more and more clannish and family-driven. Salman Khan who is a one-man entertainment empire should ideally be employing the services of a fleet of business managers. But in a swift and significant move, we hear he has handed over the reins of his career and the financial negotiations therein, to his father. According to very close friend of Salman, “This is nothing surprising. In any case Salman never spent a single paisa without his father’s consent. I don’t know if you know this. But Salman doesn’t spend a single penny of his money. He has no vices. No needs. All his money automatically goes to his bank account. Earlier he had employed a business manager to handle his financial transaction. She was sacked. And Salman’s brother Sohail took over. But Sohail has his hands full with his own work and family. So now Salim Saab(Salman’s father) takes care of all of Salman’s business transaction.”
The new arrangement suits Salman, and he is very happy with it. “Salim Saab has a good head for money and a brilliant script sense. He instinctively knows which projects Salman should take up,” says Salman’s friend.
Salim Khan has always been very supportive of Salman and has stood by him during his best and worst times. The entire Khan-daan is extremely close-knit and come together whenever there is a crisis. Of course, Salman’s career is going great guns and his popularity is high as ever but there is no harm in getting words of wisdom and guidance from the man who has seen it all, is there? Salman’s next big release is Race 3 that will hit the screens this Eid and will have him co-star Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah, Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez and Saqib Saleem.
