Priyanka says no to 3 crore offer


MUMBAI: Even though she is being paid more than others, Priyanka Chopra is in no mood to join the bandwagon of Bipasha Basu, Mallika Sherawat and company.
The actress has kicked a Rs 3 crore offer to shimmy at a 5-star hotel for this New Year’s Eve. This amount being offered to her is actually double of what she would demand for a role in a film (Rs 1.5 crore, at last count). The time it would take to earn this amount is as little as 3 hours of actual work.
The schedule of a film is much longer, going into months. So why has Chops turned down such a profitable offer? The answer is her diva image that she has been painstakingly building up over the last few years. A source close to Priyanka told, “A 5-star hotel in Andheri came up with an offer to Priyanka asking her to gyrate at the forthcoming New Year’s Eve. Priyanka turned them down politely.”
Explaining why Priyanka declined, the source added, “Priyanka is very uncomfortable dancing in hotels in front of a live audience. She doesn’t get a very good feeling in doing such performances. Yes, Rs 3 crore is a very tempting amount. But despite the hotel officials coaxing her, Priyanka was adamant that she wouldn’t toe the line.” The actress remained unavailable for comment.
