Not long ago Priyanka Chopra was seen dancing on ‘desi girl’, earning the title amid tough competition from other actresses. Today, the Bollywood superstar is busy taking Hollywood by storm. Priyanka’s popularity in India and overseas has increased in last few years thanks to her role in TV series ‘Quantico’ and movie ‘Baywatch’ that also starred some big names like Dwayne Johnson and Zac Effron. The direct impact of this popularity can be seen on the fee that Priyanka is charging for her upcoming projects.

If a report in Mid-Day has to be believed the actress is set to be paid a staggering sum of around Rs 4-5 crore for a five-minute performance at the upcoming Zee Cine Awards. This means that she will end up taking Rs 1 crore home for a minute’s performance. A source close to the show was quoted saying in the report that since Priyanka is so much in demand, the organisers did not negotiate on the price her team quoted, despite it coming to almost a-crore-a-minute.”

“Priyanka’s act will be about five-minute long. Since she is so much in demand, the organisers did not negotiate on the price her team quoted, despite it coming to almost a-crore-a-minute,” he said. The organisers plan to highlight Priyanka’s performance as one of the biggest attractions, given that she is returning to the home ground after almost two years.

“Since Priyanka’s last performance was at the Producer’s Guild Awards in 2016, the team has planned a routine that will be the highlight of this award season. She will be dancing to a medley of her chartbusters,” the source added.

Earlier it was reported that Priyanka Chopra was in talks to perform at the IIFA Awards this year but the deal wasn’t agreed as the organisers were not ready to shell the amount demanded by the actress. The 35-year-old actress is currently shooting for Quantico in the Tribeca area of Manhattan.
