Madhuri Dixit makes huge demands

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

Madhuri Dixit has quoted Rs 5 crore (over £600k) to sign a film. This is the amount what the likes of Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra demand per film.

Many producers were keen to rope in Madhuri Dixit, but the amount she has asked for has left the producers baffled. No doubt that the wonderful actress hasn’t lost her charm even though she is in her late 40s. But isn’t asking for Rs 5 crore an inordinate demand?

Madhuri can get pricey! Her manager Rikku Rakesh Nath confirms this news to a daily and is quoted as saying, “Yes, Madhuri has asked for five crores. We feel she is definitely worth the price she is quoting. She is a superstar with an enviable fan following even today. So, why shouldn’t she ask for what she deserves?”

Agreed that Madhuri was the eyeball grabber for the TV show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 4 and the makers now want her back for another season. But will the producers in tinsel town cater to her lofty demand? A trade analyst says, “Who will give Madhuri five crores now?”  The actress has even declined some offers which required her to do a sister or a mother’s role.

Now, Madhuri is in the USA with her kids.

Ranveer Singh getting comfy with Koel

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

Actress and chat show host Koel Puri let her couch be a bed for the hot and happening Band Baaja Baaraat boy Ranveer Singh.

Koel wanted to have a tete-a-tete with Ranveer on bed rather than her couch, and why! The host explains this excitedly on her blog, “See, every time I told a woman that Ranveer Singh was next on my couch, with a lusty glint in their eyes they shrieked, “You mean Bittoo Sharma? Oh he’s such a cheapie, I want to ravage him”…. Since I had the power to get him where they were dreaming of, I did.”

And did Ranveer enamour Koel with his boyish charm and that sheepish smile?

Koel was completely bowled over, and made others jealous too. The host writes, “As he regales me on my own couch (bed), I get a crystal clear picture of the propositioner who has signs like – YOU WON’T WIN TILL YOU GIVE IN.”
