One doesn't know what Shah Rukh Khan means by saying he doesn't understand money. If he doesn't "understand" money, how does he have more of it than anyone else including the other Khan superstars?
The latest proof of Shah Rukh Khan's entrepreneurial spirit is the whopping eye-popping mind-numbing deal that he has cut for his 'SLAM' concert tours in the US and Canada.
Apparently, Shah Rukh Khan's company Red Chillies will walk home from each of the 11 shows in the US and Canada with 1.2 million dollars.
The ticket prices in the US concerts range from Rs. 7,000 to Rs. 45,000 and more.Many NRIs, who are huge fans of Shah Rukh Khan, are reeling under the impact of the prohibitive ticket prices.
A source from the US closely associated with the organizers of the SLAM tour says, "Shah Rukh Khan gets 1.2 million dollars per show. This is his takeaway fee for every concert in the SLAM tour exclusive of all other expenses pertaining to the concerts. If we calculate the total amount, he takes home from the 11 concerts; Shah Rukh Khan will cover the cost of production of his film Happy New Year from the concerts itself. Whatever profits he makes at the box-office, will be surplus."
