Kareena Kapoor paid 1.5 crores for a reality show
It was reported earlier that Kareena Kapoor Khan was holidaying in Beirut where her husband Saif Ali Khan was shooting for a movie. While she was on her trip, she was offered to do a dance performance on the reality show ‘Arab’s Got Talent’. She was paid a whooping sum of Rs. 1.5 crores for her performance.
Kareena is immensely popular in Arab countries. For making an appearance on the reality show in Lebanon and for doing a dance performance, Kareena was offered such a huge sum by the organizers. Says a source, “Bebo performed the opening act on the show and also attended the launch of a new channel the next day. She had also been promoting her upcoming film 'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein' but managed to take some time off.”
While analysts say that usually celebrities are not paid such a huge sum for a single performance, it was the popularity of Kareena in Arab countries which helped her to earn such a huge sum.
Says a source from the show, “Kareena is immensely popular in the Arab countries. The organisers also went home happy as they received a great response from the audiences.”
However, Kareena’s spokesperson was not available for comment.
Before this also, last year the Chhattisgarh government paid Kareena Kapoor a huge sum of Rs. 1.4 crores to perform at the function of State’s anniversary celebration. A number of artistes were called from all over the country. Kareena’s fees topped the list. She was paid the highest for an eight minute performance in Raipur. The function was held on 1st November,2012.
