According to the sources, PeeCee's performance started as soon as she stepped out of her swanky car and walked down the red carpet. It was supposedly on the actress' insistence that such an entry was conceptualized to emphasise her pop-star avatar. A string of cameras had been set along the red carpet trail to follow her right up to the stage.

A source says, "Priyanka and her team had worked hard on the concept and her styling. She danced to the tunes of 'Assalam E Ishqum' from Gunday. The organizers had to loosen their purse strings to pay her Rs 1.25 crore for the performance. This also makes her one of the highest paid Bollywood celebrities for shows."

PeeCee wasn't available for comment.
