A source says, “The organisers of the event have been in talks with Priyanka for the past couple of weeks. They were eager to rope her in as she is popular among the youth. So far she has not performed for a December 31 show, so it was a big deal to get her to say yes.”

However, the actress asked for Rs six crore which they thought was too steep. Adds the source, “The arrangers felt that for a seven-minute performance minus singing, it was a huge amount.”

Eventually, however, they were ready to pay as they felt they would recover the cost in tickets. The marketing team has already started the promotion for the event.

Priyanka’s spokesperson remained unavailable for comment.
