Hotels are apparently politely rejecting her offer of a performance during New Year’s Eve
The festive season is always a perfect time for fun, merrymaking and money making (especially if you’re a celebrity). But we know one person who is going to stay grumpy this year and the next: Madhuri Dixit!
According to a source, Madhuri who recently relocated to Mumbai was very keen about performing at an event on New Year’s Eve. This is a massive opportunity to make some quick bucks for actresses and stars like Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu are often offered millions to groove to their popular numbers at five star hotel bashes!
Naturally, the ‘Devdas’ actress wanted to cash in on this opportunity too and accordingly, her manager sent feelers to several event management companies and set up meetings with organizers.
However, things didn’t take off as Mads had expected. The source revealed, “It was an awkward situation. Madhuri told them she wanted to dance to a medley of her hit songs but the organisers felt that New Year Eve’s performances weren’t about old Bollywood numbers or the Saroj Khan school of dance which Madhuri is known for but more about sex appeal and item numbers. Still they couldn’t admit this to Madhuri, so they told her that they had issues with money.”
The actress’ manager Rikku Rakesh Nath however, denied the story and said that Mads was going on a vacation with her family. He claimed it was she who had turned down offers to perform at parties.
Meanwhile, among current actresses, it’s only Mallika Sherawat who has cut a neat deal of one crore Indian rupees for a 30-minute performance. Now you know why we sympathise with Madhuri!
