Last updated on: April 20, 2010 18:31 IST

Shah Rukh Khan may be raking in the moolah these days but life was not as glamorous when he first started out. In a recent Twitter post, the star declared that his first salary was a modest Rs 50.

"I earned my first salary ushering for a Pankaj Udhas concert in Delhi -- Rs 50. Took a train and saw Taj Mahal with the money," goes the tweet.

It's hard to forget your first job no matter the heights you have scaled over the course of your career. What the experience was like, the seemingly never-ending wait until payday, the thrill of getting your first paycheque, the excitement of actually having your own money to spend any way you please -- all once-in-a-lifetime experiences that are cherished forever.

So we are asking you -- how much was your first salary and how did you burst it up?

Did you spend in on a present for your parents? Or a designer pair of shoes you always wanted?

Maybe you decided to blow it all on a trip to Goa? Or maybe just a CD of your favourite songs?
