BollyCoin, a non-fungible token (NFT) that aims to bring Bollywood to the blockchain, is launching its collection from the Dabangg franchise featuring Salman Khan as Chulbul Pandey on December 30 announced on Thursday.

The NFT platform has partnerships with Bollywood biggies, including Salman Khan Films, Arbaaz Khan Production and Sohail Khan Productionz, and talks with other celebrities.

Amitabh Bachchan's NFT collections of 'Madhushala,' autographed posters and collectables received bids of close to a million dollars last month.

The 'Madhushala' NFT collection received the highest bid in India at $756,000. It is a collection of poems by Harivansh Rai Bachchan, the superstar's late father, recorded in Amitabh's voice.
