    Salman Khan is now talking business with Sony TV; he is set to host the second season of Dus Ka Dum. But this time he will not be as involved with the show as he was last year.

    A source said, "This is a result of the huge pay cut that has happened this season. It is believed that Salman was paid Rs 89 crore in the first season, but in the second season he will be paid only Rs 44 crore. And with the pay cut, Salman has also cut down on his involvement. He has refused to use his clout with his star friends and colleagues to get them on the show."

    A source close to the actor said, "Salman recently had a meeting with the programming heads. He made it very clear that he would no longer be responsible for inviting his friends and celebs as guests on the show. He will do his job of hosting and that will be about it."

    Danish Khan, Vice President - Marketing Sony Entertainment said, "Salman has a star attraction and he'll be seen in great style as usual; a big dhamaka entry is planned for him."

    When questioned about Salman's decision to not ask celebs to participate, given the drastic cut in payment for the 2nd season, he said, "I am not aware of this. He is involved in the production but there is no hard and fast rule as to what he is supposed to do. We are in the process of talking to a lot of celebs from all walks of life and we will let you know the line-up soon. As far as money is concerned, as a policy we can't disclose the amount paid for either season."

    Star power does a lot of good to any show. The source said, "Salman's word carries a lot of weight and that's how he managed to get top notch actors and star friends like Rani Mukerji who is rarely seen on TV, or Govinda-David, Ranbir-Deepika, or his brothers together on the show. Getting people together on a television show is not always possible unless you are a Salman Khan or a Shah Rukh Khan."

    The shoot for Dus Ka Dum will begin as soon as Salman is back from London where he is shooting for Veer.
