Deepika, Priyanka to get Rs 33 lakh per ‘minute’ for award show performance
Hollywood has certainly been a lucky charm for leading ladies, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, who have managed to strike a killer deal for an upcoming awards show in Madrid, Spain.
According to a report in a leading daily, the actresses have negotiated a deal with organizers of the upcoming IIFA awards that would fetch them Rs 33 lakh per minute. What’s more, since the actresses are scheduled to perform for 4 minutes, they will each be raking in close to Rs 1.33 crore for their respective performances.
Sources claim that the organizers researched about the popularity of actresses before zeroing in on Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, who came out on top. Needles to say, their upcoming Hollywood debuts in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and Baywatch had something do with their global popularity.
Since their brand value has shot up considerably over the last few months, even the organizers were willing to pay their quote. The actresses are believed to be be making 50% more than what any top A-list Bollywood actress would typically get for a similar performance.
Other actors scheduled to perform at the show include Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff and Sonakshi Sinha. While the top actresses have certainly struck gold, their deals seem like a bargain compared to Salman, who has reportedly been paid around Rs 5 crore for his performance.
