Why did Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor Khan choose not to perform at New Year’s Eve?

Both the B-town beauties will ring in their New Year with their loved ones this year. But we wonder why most A-list heroines have decided not to perform this New Year…

Besides Priyanka Chopra, no established Bollywood actor will be performing at any New Year’s event this year. Be it Kareena Kapoor Khan, Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu or Malaika Arora Khan – all the starlets have decided to stay away from New Year bashes. But the question is why? Is it a conscious step? Maybe but we have also learnt that these celebs are demanding big moolah. And that’s one reason why most Bollywood biggies aren’t doing any New Year gigs. While talking to a tabloid, a wedding planner said, “Several Bollywood stars have hiked their price up to three times their previous cost and organisers just cannot afford that kind of budgets anymore.”

At the same time, reports are doing the rounds that Priyanka will rake in a whopping Rs 6 crore for a seven minute performance in Chennai. Now how did that happen? Wethinks brand PeeCee has grown much bigger since the actor stepped into the world of music. So paying Rs 6 crore shouldn’t be a problem to organisers if they are getting an international pop star on board, right?
