More than a week after Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan announced his decision to launch his non-fungible token (NFT) collection, Salman Khan has also joined the bandwagon. The actor took to Twitter to announce the launch of his own NFT collection, which will be available on Bollycoin – a new, dedicated, Bollywood-themed NFT platform launched by Bollywood actor, producer and director Atul Agnihotri. The platform aims to allow fans to invest in clips and stills from movies, iconic dialogues, posters, unseen footage and social media content and merchandise from celebrities.
“I am coming, I will take NFTs. Salman Khan is coming to Static NFTs on bollycoin.com,” said Salman Khan on twitter. According to a white paper listed by Bollycoin on its website, digital collectibles of celebrities will be sold on the Ethereum blockchain, offering a platform for Bollywood fans around the world to own NFTs of their favorite Bollywood movies.
So far, the platform has partnered with some of the leading production houses which include Salman Khan Films, Arbaaz Khan Productions, Sohail Khan Productions and Reel Life Productions. Some other associations are also in the works, which is sure to complete the platform ahead of its formal launch in December this year.
“With Bollycoin, we have tried to find the right balance between investing, NFTs, digital assets and creative content consumption. We are incredibly thrilled that Salman Khan has partnered with us for Salman Khan’s stable of NFTs because This shows that we are on the right track,” said Atul Agnihotri, co-founder of Bollycoin.
