|The award season is a merry time for Bollywood celebs, for apart from scooping the trophies for their performances, the stars end up raking in the moolah for their on-stage gigs. Katrina Kaif, we hear, is set to make a killing this season.
Word is that Katrina Kaif will be charging huge fee for performing at four award functions, pocketing close to Rs. 10 crore for her acts. That’s a huge amount relative to what Kat’s contemporaries charge, but given the fact that the actress is riding on the success of two back-to-back blockbusters -- Ek Tha Tiger and Jab Tak Hai Jaan -- the organizers are willing to fork out fat paycheques to the actress.
Just days back we heard of Kareena Kapoor charging a whopping Rs. 1.40 crore for just an eight-minute performance at a function. But Bebo’s paycheque pales in comparison to what Kat is now set to charge.
Katrina also has a good number of songs in her kitty. ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’ is passé now. The current rage is ‘Ishq Shava’ from Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Before shooting the song, Katrina reportedly prepared for as long as two months to get all the complicated dance steps right. She did burn the dance floor with her moves in the film, and she will replicate them during her performances.
With so much effort put in behind her performance, Katrina Kaif apparently thinks she deserves the fee she’s charging for her gigs.
