Owner and organiser of the event, Amit Mehatani clarifies that the figure of Rs 5 crore is highly inflated
After globetrotting and going international, it seems like actress Priyanka Chopra has set her eyes on the Southern industry. This New Year’s Eve she has consented to sizzle and perform on her own medley from her films at Hotel Park Hyatt, Chennai. But rumours are floating around that she does not come cheap and is charging an exorbitant amount, to the tune of Rs 5 crore!
Confirming the same, Amit Mehatani, owner and developer of Park Hyatt shared, “We zeroed in on Priyanka for we have heard about her professionalism and we are in awe of her. She is herself designing her medley for which she has put in a lot of hard work with so many rehearsals. We were mesmerised to notice – for she would like to work on every minute detail. The choreographer Swaroop will be handling the whole show for this New Year’s Eve.” All praises for Priyanka, Mehatani quips, “Visualising Priyanka’s work ethics and her global appeal it has been an absolute pleasure for us to have a diva like her performing for us this New Year’s Eve.”
On being asked whether she is charging an exorbitant amount of Rs 5 crore for a six to seven minute performance, he replied, “Well! I would not be able to give her exact payment details. However, she is not charging 5 crores for six minutes or so. But I can say that the media reports are a figment of someone’s overrated statement. Also, it is not that she is performing just for six or seven minutes. With good amount of numbers, she will definitely bring a smile on the faces of people. Undoubtedly, she will be performing for at least 15 minutes or so.” Mehatani further added, “She has one or two exits during her performances while others will continue performing on the stage.” Priyanka remained unavailable for comment.
