Isn’t he acting too pricey now? Read on to find out the full story!
With Comedy Nights popularity going high, the latest scoop on ace comedian Kapil Sharma is that he apparently demanded a sum of Rs 75 lakh to perform a solo live show! Yes! Now that’s his alleged fee hike doing the rounds!
Kapil, who is currently gearing up for his Bollywood debut with Abbas-Mustan’s next is getting a lot of offers for stand-up gigs in India as well as abroad. However, while initially his domestic fee would cater to a figure of Rs 65 lakh for the whole team, he has now hiked it to Rs 75 lakh, only for his individual performance! Too much, isn’t it?
According to a popular tabloid, "Kapil was approached for a domestic event, but he asked for Rs 75 lakh. Now the organisers are in a dilemma; they want him on board, but have limited budget. So, they are checking with advertisers and sponsors if they can chip in for such a hefty amount."
There’s no denying to the fact that Kapil has excellent comic timing that's sure to leave us in splits. But can’t he go a little easy? He might lose out on quite a lot of things if he clings on to such a nuance. In fact, this is not the first time Kapil has left the organisers in a fix. Initially too we heard reports of Kapil charging Rs 1.25 crore for hosting Sohail Khan’s Celebrity Cricket League, last year!
So what are your thoughts on this Bollywoodlifers? Do you think its fair for Kapil to charge such a bomb? Share your views in the comments and watch out this space for more updates!
