It is reported that Priyanka has asked for a whopping 10 million to be the showstopper of an upcoming event in Delhi.
“Priyanka is the brand ambassador of the event and it was a natural decision to approach her to be the showstopper. However, she spun a surprise on us by asking for a fee of Rs 1 crore! The amount was just too high for the designer at the show,” Mid Day quoted a source as saying. "We could not afford PC's fee and so the deal didn't take place. We had to look for another celebrity to take her place."
The tabloid also has quoted the informer saying that earlier Priyanka used to charge 30, 00000 for ramp walk in the past.
"Barfi" being India's official entry to Academic award Oscar, Priyanka seemed to have got all the more reason to hike the fee. Released on Sept 14, the film revolves around the lives of a hearing and speech impaired boy played by Ranbir Kapoor and an autistic girl essayed by Priyanka Chopra.
The event organizers have stepped back from her door after hearing her huge demand. "We could not afford PC's fee and so the deal didn't take place. We had to look for another celebrity to take her place," a source told Mid-Day.
However, the sources close to Priyanka has refuted the buzz saying that Priyanka has no time to walk the ramp as she is flying to Los Angles for her other commitments.
"Priyanka is in India only for a day for her prior commitments. She will soon be in Los Angles to shoot for her video. There is no question of her walking the ramp at all."
Well, it was earlier reported that Vidya Balan hiked her fee per film to 70 million after the stupendous success of "The Dirty Picture".
