Salman Khan Thums Up: Ever since Salman Khan joined Bigg Boss 10 as a host, the US beverage brand Coca-Cola has been re-thinking about its deal with Salman since the tv reality show hosted by him is co-sponsored by Parle Agro’s Appy Fizz. Since this would lead to a clash, the brand decided to end its contract with Salman Khan.
