NEW DELHI – Bollywood stars have often received handsome offers to attend functions, dance at wedding receptions and make appearances at various shows.
Actors such as Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, Neha Dhupia, Malika Sherawat and Malaika Arora Khan are known to shake a leg at events for amounts as high as Dh3 million.
Recently, Katrina Kaif turned down a hefty Dh1.65m offered for a one-night show in Pakistan.
Considering Katrina’s popularity this isn’t the first time the actress received such an offer from India’s neighbor.
In fact, Katrina keeps getting regular offers from Pakistan to make an appearance or do a show.
However, reports suggests she has said no to all such requests which might require her to cross the border.
The last offer came from a wealthy media house owner in Karachi who wanted Kaif to be his guest for a show and offered her Dh1.65m as well as an endorsement deal with a brand.
Katrina’s international appeal and box-office success has seen her popularity grow.
Most of the requests till date have come from Pakistan, but because of the tension between the countries and the sensitive nature of her trip, Katrina has always declined them.
A few years back, Kareena Kapoor was seen endorsing a local Pakistani textile brand with her billboards splashed all across major cities like Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad.
