quick buck. SRK has charged about USD
15,000 which is close to Rs 8 crore for a wedding performance.
"It was on the invitation of Ahmed Hashem Khoory and Mariam Othman, the bride's parents, that SRK agreed to perform," confirmed Rashid Sayyed, who organises a majority of the actor's Dubai events and is a friend of the bride's family.
"It's not about Shah Rukh's price. Even two years back, he was charging Rs 4 crore for a performance and Rs 1 crore for an appearance. And these days, anybody can shell out that kind of money - that's roughly the cost of a super luxury sedan. The problem is getting him to perform. He is so busy that he only performs for people he personally knows. So unless you approach him through somebody he personally interacts with, he is not going to take up your assignment," said a source close to the actor.
Roughly, every year King Khan’s gets around 250 invites for wedding appearances/performances but he could took up only 10 of them for his busy schedule.
