Sonakshi ousted from Salman’s film due to price hike

Sonakshi Sinha and Salman Khan’s jodi is highly applauded and they have hit bouncer with two hit movies, ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Dabangg 2’. On looking at the success quotient, Sajid Nadiadwala has signed the actress opposite Salman Khan for Hindi remake of Telugu movie ‘Kick’ and Sonakshi Sinha has also received the signing amount but later returned the signing amount for the movie.

As our source says, "Considering that Sonakshi had a hit in Son Of Sardaar and Dabangg 2 was releasing, Sajid Nadiadwala thought it would be great to repeat the Dabangg jodi for his movie too. And hence, he signed her on for his film, with which he's also making his debut as a director, before the release of Dabangg 2."

In a short span of career, Sonakshi has delivered number of hits and this lead the actress to hike her price.

Says our source, "Considering the opening weekend numbers of Dabangg 2, Sonakshi thought she should get paid more for her newest assignments." Unfortunately for her, Sajid Nadiadwala didn't exactly share her enthusiasm. As our informer explains, "While Sajid knows she has become a big star, he felt Sonakshi didn't really play such an important part in the success of Dabangg 2. So he's said to have refused to give her an increment above the committed feel." The result of this disagreement over money matters saw Sonakshi lose the movie.

It is believed that the filmmaker might approach Deepika Padukone, never mind if her remuneration is higher than Sonakshi. Our source reasons, "Sajid felt that if he had to pay more to the heroine, then he might as well cast a bigger actress. And since Deepika hasn't done any film with Salman, this jodi gives the movie an extra fresh touch with such a novel casting."

It is a normal tendency of all the stars to hike their price after delivering few hits. Sonakshi has been lucky with her movies. Her films have not only become a huge success but most of her film crossed 100 mark at the box-office and this lead the actress to hike her price.
