Mumbai: It`s the time for year-end celebrations. While big names from Bollywood have decided to take a break, celebrities like Sunny Leone, Sameera Reddy and Parineeti Chopra are set to perform at New Year Eve galas.
Sunny Leone told IANS: "I am very excited to perform and this will be my first live performance in front of the people. I have never done this before and this will be in a very grand scale."
If reports are to be believed, porn star-turned-actress Sunny Leone has been offered a whopping Rs.1 crore for her New Year performance in the capital.
Parineeti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor, Anjana Sukhani and Mika Singh too will perform at the Aamby Valley City for a select audience.
This year the theme is retro and Parineeti told IANS: "I am totally for it. New Year is a time for holiday and very few people decide to work. Also, you get to earn more money than usual. Also, I am going this time, I can take my family and friends with me and enjoy."
Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor were reportedly offered whopping Rs.2 crore each for live shows, but they turned it down as they are keen to spend time with their respective families.
Even Bipasha Basu is giving it a miss this year. Her manager said: "She is not performing this year as of now but if there is any change, we will keep you posted."
On the other hand, Prachi Desai is likely to perform at The Country Club here, while Yana Gupta will turn the heat on in Muscat. As per reports, Yana has been offered around Rs.20 lakh for her performance.
There is a buzz that Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan may join a multi-starrer live show in Dubai in December, but the news is not yet confirmed.
