Sony contemplates new television show with Salman Khan


    MUMBAI: News from Sony Entertainment Television is that Salman Khan has been signed for another season. But it is not for the very successful show, Dus Ka Dum. The actor will be doing another show for the channel for which details are still being fine tuned.

    Sources from the channel, who do not wish to be named as the show is not confirmed, told, "Salman Khan is the most successful Bollywood actor on the small screen. His contract for last year had to be extended by another 13 episodes as the audiences kept badgering us to continue with the show. But this time when we wanted to renew the deal, Salman came up with the idea to do something fresh. So although he has signed up with us, what the show is going to be, is still being decided."

    Sony is currently gearing up for another season of Indian Idol. Only post that will the creative team come up with ideas for Salman’s show. And as for Salman, who always begs to differ from the ordinary, has to do something quite contrary by moving away from a successful mantra.

    A friend of the actor says, "Salman has to do it his way. He likes taking risks instead of walking the same rosy path. His fans have always stood by him. Whatever TV show he has come as a guest, be it Farah Khan’s Tere Mere Beach Mein on Star Plus or Karan Johar’s Lift Kara De on Sony, has been a huge success. We are sure, this time round, he will yet again come a winner."
