Malaika Arora Khan postponed her New Year vacation with husband Arbaaz Khan, when an entertainment group offered her a large undisclosed sum for her anthem like Munni gig at Amby Valley. Katrina Kaif, on the other hand, has refused to dance to her Sheila ki Jawaani number from Tees Maar Khan.
Says a source close to Kaif, “A suburban luxury hotel offered her Rs 3.5 crores for the gig. Frankly, Katrina was tempted. But she backed out in time.”
Munni and Sheila are Salman Khan’s sister-in-law Malaika and former girlfriend Katrina Kaif respectively. The stunning ladies, never close friends but cordial enough to be called civil acquaintances, have revealed a contrasting attitude to their dance numbers.
Kaif screams in protest. “Are you crazy? I am not dancing at any hotel on New Year’s eve. To be entertaining a live audience that night instead of enjoying oneself as another year slips in – how sad is that! It’s almost like you are telling the audience, ‘Hey guys, I don’t have a life.’
It’s true I am not going on my annual family holiday, but the reason is not a lucrative dance offer.”
Interestingly, last year Kaif was almost dragged to court for opting out of a New Year’s eve performance at a luxury hotel in Mumbai. This year, she was adamant. No dancing for drunken revelers on December 31.
