We all know that Salman Khan has been well known for extending help and going out of his way to help not only the public but also the people from the film & TV industry. Actor Siddharth Nigam, who currently portrays the role of Aladdin in the TV show, Aladdin: Naam Toh Suna Hoga has recently revealed that Salman played a role in getting him a salary hike.
Siddharth said that he & Salman used to work out at the same gym while he was shooting for Ashoka in Karjat & Salman Khan was shooting for a film there. During one of their meetings, Salman Khan had asked him about his per-day salary. After hearing what Siddharth said, Salman got shocked & pulled some strings which then resulted in a salary hike for Siddharth.
In an interview with ETimes, Siddharth spoke about this and revealed
“We would work out together. Salman sir had asked me about my per day salary once when I was working on Ashoka and he was really shocked after hearing it. Since my per day was very low at that time, he called up someone and told that person how low I was being paid. And after he spoke about it and there was a boom in my per day after a year of being on Ashoka.”
Let us tell you that this is not the first time that an actor has spoken about Salman Khan lending a helping hand. Recently, filmmaker and choreographer Remo D’Souza was also admitted to the hospital when he had a heart attack. Remo was admitted to the Kokilaban Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai in December. At that time, Remo had also opened up about how Salman Khan extended a helping hand to the family at their difficult time. He said
“We call him an angel as he has a heart of gold. I have worked with him and I know the kind of a gem that he is. Salman and I don’t talk much, like, I only say ‘yes, sir, okay sir’. Actually, my wife and Salman are very close. As soon as I was rushed to the hospital, Lizelle called him. And through the six days that I was in the hospital, he saw to it that I was taken good care of. He was also personally talking to the doctors.”
