Performing on public and private events on New Year's Eve is a quick money making business for celebrities. In fact, Bollywood baadshah Shahrukh Khan is honest enough to accept that he will dance in any function, provided he is paid his worth. While stars like Salman Khan and Aamir Khan choose to avoid these functions, most actors don't mind cashing in on the big day and adding some extra buck to their wallet.
Who demands how much?
Shahrukh Khan charges approximately Rs 4 crore to dance at events. In fact, it is likely that he increases his fees, considering that his just released film Ra.One is a super hit. Moreover, his upcoming film Don 2 is also a very hyped film and is likely to be a blockbuster.
Top heroines like Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra charge between Rs 1.2 to Rs 2 crore for performing at New Year's Eve function. Kareena, however might increase her fee, considering that she has had back to back hits this year like Golmaal, Bodyguard, Ra.One.... Kareena might be the highest paid actress on this New Year's Eve.
Bipasha Basu, Anushka Sharma, Malaika Arora Khan and Mallika Sherawat fall under the middle bracket and charge between Rs 50 to Rs 75 lakh.
Then comes actresses like Yana Gupta, Sameera Reddy, Neha Dhupia, Koena Mitra and Tanushree Dutta who have very little projects in their kitty. They make more money on New year's eve than on any Bollywood project. These actress charge between Rs 10 to Rs 25 lakh.
