The 49-year-old actor is currently in Gondal near Rajkot, Gujarat, for Sooraj Barjatya's 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo'. His other film 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', being directed by 'Ek Tha Tiger' helmer Kabir Khan, has wrapped up shooting and is currently in post production stage for a mid-year release.

Bollywood trade analyst Komal Nahta said Salman has approximately Rs 150 crore riding on him for these two films alone, besides another Rs 50 crore for the projects that he has signed.

"If you take Rs 75 crore each for these two films, it comes to a total of Rs 150 crore. And then if you add another Rs 50 crore for the projects that he has signed, it comes to Rs 200 crore. There is some amount of tension but the actor has the option to further appeal his case," Nahta told PTI.
