No good offers for ‘dhak-dhak girl’ Madhuri


New Year’s Eve performances at big parties are huge opportunities for actresses to make mega bucks. Especially for those who aren’t great dancers. Every year, the likes of Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Bipasha Basu are offered obscene amounts of money – amounting to a few lakhs a minute – to perform at five star hotel bashes.
It seems Madhuri Dixit, who recently shifted base back to Mumbai, wanted to explore this opportunity too. It is learnt that her manager met up with a few organisers and even sent out feelers to a leading event management company about the same. However, Mads’ enthusiasm to dance on a medley of her hits wasn’t received well, as these performances are not about old Bollywood numbers or the Saroj Khan school of dance, but more about sex appeal.
A source reveals, “It was an awkward situation for the organisers. They didn’t want to upset her so they simply said that the money wasn’t working out.” An insider admits, “Madhuri is keen to perform at an exclusive event for New Year’s eve. She had the whole performance planned out and was willing to negotiate on the moolah, but the response she received wasn’t enthusiastic. The offers she did get though weren’t exciting enough, so she rejected them.”
