This is Shah Rukh Khan we are talking about. On one side, Salman Khan is not advised to dance because of his uncommon medical condition of trigeminal neuralgia. While Amir Khan and Saif Ali Khan doesn’t support the idea of special appearances in high-profile weddings. Shah Rukh Khan is one of those big Bollywood stars who gives his special performance in a few wedding ceremonies.
Shah Rukh charges USD 15,000 for a special performance in such high-profile events. This number is close to eight crores INR. This 8-crore INR is the rough amount of what he got paid at Dubai’s Madinat Jumeirah hotel last Thursday. The performance was of 30-minutes only.
“It was on the invitation of Ahmed Hashem Khoory and Mariam Othman, the bride’s parents, that SRK agreed to perform” stated Rashid Sayyed, he is the organizer who organizes most of the events for our actors, even he is a close family friend of bride’s.
One of the sources told that this is not about Shah Rukh’s price. He is too busy to give any kind of special performance. The source also added, “Even two years back, he was charging Rs 4 crore for a performance and Rs 1 crore for an appearance. And these days, anybody can shell out that kind of money – that’s roughly the cost of a super luxury sedan. The problem is getting him to perform.”
Last year, Shah Rukh got almost 250 invites out of which he accepted 10. For this year, it would only be 6.
