Bipasha had pulled out of the tour over the issue of remuneration. She had quoted an astronomically high figure after the success of her movie Race to which the organisers did not agree. Bipasha had demanded the same money as is being given to Aishwarya Bachchan for the tour. It is believed Big B had personally spoken to her but could not convince her continue with the tour.
The tour which begins in June has had its share of controversies with stars like Salman Khan being given a cold shoulder by the Bachchans. The tour will have Amitabh Bachchan perform along with son Abhishek and daughter-in-law and Aishwarya. Many Bollywood stars including Akshay Kumar, Madhuri Dixit and Shahid Kapoor will also join the Bachchan on the tour.
