Kamal Haasan has revealed that he didn’t pay salary to Shah Rukh Khan for acting in Hey Ram. Kamal said Shah Rukh Khan only got a wristwatch for acting in Hey Ram but the actor has got the remake rights from the film’s co-producer.
“Shah Rukh only got a wristwatch for acting in my film at the time because, by the end of it, I had nothing left in hand. Now, he is the brand ambassador for a watch brand. I am glad that he got the Hindi rights of Hey Ram from Bharat bhai (co-producer Bharat Shah). He should have some memory of the film as he gave his friendship and service for it”, said Kamal Haasan in an interview to Mumbai Mirror.
In Hey Ram, Shah Rukh Khan played as Kamal’s close friend.
