Katrina Kaif did 'Bombay Talkies' for free

Katrina Kaif did not charge acting fee for 'Bombay Talkies'

Bombay Talkies, an anthology film to celebrate the centenary of Indian cinema, is made on a skimpy budget. It’s not a typical commercial enterprise aimed at making big bucks. So very rightly Katrina Kaif did forgo her acting fee for the flick.

Katrina features in a short film by Zoya Akhtar in Bombay Talkies. It tells the story of a star-struck boy who’s obsessed with Katrina Kaif, smitten with her beauty and charm. It is said to be based on a real life incident about a Katrina fan that Zoya came to know a few years back.

So when the chance to make a short film in Bombay Talkies came along, Zoya decided to make a film on it and she even roped in Katrina whom she directed in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

And guess what? Knowing very well that Zoya Akhtar was working within a small budget of about Rs. 2 crore, Katrina Kaif did not charge a penny for her performance in the film, we have learnt.

Not just Katrina, even Amitabh Bachchan refused to accept any money for the special appearance he made in Anurag Kashyap’s short story in Bombay Talkies.

The other two films in this anthology are by Dibakar Banerjee and Karan Johar. This is the first time Karan Johar has directed something on such a small budget.
