New Delhi: ‘New Year’s Eve’ is one such occasion when people from the entertainment arena get golden opportunity to mint money. With actors, comedians etc charging high amount for their New Year’s performances, it seems Priyanka Chopra will soon join this league.
According to a tabloid, the 31-year-old actress, who has never performed at a December 31 event, has agreed to perform at a New Year’s Eve party in Chennai. The leggy lass has apparently demanded for Rs 6 crore to shake a leg.
“The organisers of the event have been in talks with Priyanka for the past couple of weeks. They were eager to rope her in as she is popular among the youth. So far she has not performed for a December 31 show, so it was a big deal to get her to say yes,” a source said.
On the other hand, the organisers of the event feel that the amount is too high for a seven-minute gig.
“The arrangers felt that for a seven-minute performance minus singing, it was a huge amount. Eventually, however, they were ready to pay as they felt they would recover the cost in tickets. The marketing team has already started the promotion for the event,” the tabloid quoted a source as saying.
