Jacqueline demands Rs. 4 crore to dance at a wedding

29 April 2015 12:08 pm - 44     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Sri Lanka’s Jacqueline Fernandez has accepted an offer to perform at a high-profile wedding in London and has quoted Rs. 4 crore to shake a leg.

A source says, "This businessman has planned a lavish wedding for his son on the outskirts of London during May-end. He has approached a few actresses to perform on the occasion. Jacky has given her nod to them and is required to perform on a few songs either from her films or other popular numbers."

Apparently, the actress will spend two days there and the business family will take care of her accommodation and travel expenses.

The source adds, "After a discussion with her team, they have agreed to pay her Rs. 4 crore and so, Jacqueline is currently reworking her dates to incorporate the wedding in her diary. She is likely to shoot for a film with Varun Dhawan and then begin work on a Sri Lankan movie before she leaves for the wedding dance in London."

Jacqueline's spokesperson confirms the story. (NDTV)

    Baby 7 Thursday, 30 April 2015 09:53 AM

    Then for shaking two legs, 8 crores? Thanks for the hard earned foreign currency if invested in Sri Lanka (Not Dubai)

    Calistus Jayatillekec Thursday, 30 April 2015 10:16 AM

    No wonder, when her hopper itself costs Rs. 200.-

    Nethra Thursday, 30 April 2015 10:43 AM

    We appriciate her talent and achivement,rather than finding loopholes and mistakes.

    Lankan Citizen Thursday, 30 April 2015 12:09 PM

    Jacqueline is an actress and she can request any amount which is actually determined by her stardom. If I can pay Rs. 4 crore, she will even dance at my wedding.This is not an important news to the common man

    malta Thursday, 30 April 2015 01:53 PM

    jacky has gold plated her legs, so the businessmen r crazy,

    Rohantha A Thursday, 30 April 2015 02:00 PM

    I am speechless. 80 million LKR to watch absolute rubbish.

    Silva Thursday, 30 April 2015 02:06 PM

    Salman khan was her close friend, so needless to talk about her hoppers !

    Rohan Thursday, 30 April 2015 03:39 PM

    It looks like the businessman is a M K R.

    Upul Perera Thursday, 30 April 2015 06:24 PM

    Why not. Make hay while sunshines ,thats my motto.Others are jealous of what you have achived.Most of the Indians here in UK are mad over you.Good Luck.

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 30 April 2015 09:28 AM

    Jacqueline will do anything for a price. Remember he last adventure for MR where she arrived with Salman Khan and made a hurried exit when things turned the other way.

    hamid Thursday, 30 April 2015 11:06 PM

    SL in KSA Friday, 01 May 2015 09:21 AM

    She is making a living for herself and not seeking public permission to do so, as long it is within ethical means. Besides she is performing for a wedding for someone who can afford to pay her price. If it was a performer from the west or the UK itself none of us would be making a noise about it.

    george Friday, 01 May 2015 10:56 AM

    If there are fools willing to pay such amounts, why not suck them dry? Good for her and other such performers.

    Gamarala Friday, 01 May 2015 10:57 AM

    It is sad, that I notice a tinge of envy or jealousy by some of the comments here. We should all be happy that a Sri Lankan have done well in Bollywood and that she could demand high fees for appearances. More power to her and we all should wish her the best, without trying to be negative and put her down. Sad is the fact that some Sri Lankans are famous for this type of behavior.

    george Friday, 01 May 2015 10:59 AM

    Still less than USD 600,000. Not that much really.

    de silva Wednesday, 29 April 2015 07:46 PM

    The person who has invited her cannot be a Indian or an Indian origin.There are millions starving in India.Give this money to Mr .Modi to distribute among the poor folk in that country.Who knows how long this marriage lasts.At least the people in India will remember them foe ever.

    Gamarala Wednesday, 29 April 2015 08:21 PM

    You go girl. Good for her.

    Liswom Wednesday, 29 April 2015 08:51 PM

    We should know how much she received from Namal to come to Colombo with Salman Khan. via DM Android App

    Godaya Wednesday, 29 April 2015 08:56 PM

    This is nothing new. Film actors and actresses charge heavily to perform in such functions. Shahrukh Khan charges even much higher than this.

    Mustapha Wednesday, 29 April 2015 08:59 PM

    Without any doubt today your the most popular Sri Lankan internationally. Good work keep it up. via DM Android App

    Ravi Wednesday, 29 April 2015 09:29 PM

    Possibly Indian Rs. I suppose, which make upto about SL Rs. 80 Mln.

    Bala Wednesday, 29 April 2015 10:14 PM

    Giabao Wednesday, 29 April 2015 06:07 PM

    aiyo. looks like her hoppers are not selling and now going to dance to make some money.

    Fassey Wednesday, 29 April 2015 11:30 PM

    What a waste of money to spend so much for a dancer. Crazy world and crazy people.

    Jack n Gill Thursday, 30 April 2015 12:34 AM

    If she has quoted Rs. 4 crore to shake a leg. Just imagine how much MR government would have paid her and Salman for SL visit

    Shaf Thursday, 30 April 2015 06:16 AM

    If someone could convey this msg to that businessman. that it would be wiser to use that 4 crores to the Nepalese people in despair n Nt for this woman. Thousands of peoples lives would benefit. via DM Android App

    usoof Thursday, 30 April 2015 09:24 AM

    Dear brother you have to answer the god the money way you spend.. poor man seeks for food the rich seeks for hunger.

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 30 April 2015 09:26 AM

    It is only lower grades of actors in the bolywood circuit that dance for parties and weddings. Their is a further lower grade who do dance performances at night clubs in Mumbai and elsewhere.
