Just when you thought Hollywood, UNICEF and her own serial on ABC was enough for Priyanka Chopra, she proves everyone wrong once again! The actress is set to give a killer 5-minute long performance at the upcoming Zee Cine Awards, and sources reveal she will be paid 4-5 crore rupees for it.

The actress has not performed to Bollywood songs at a major platform for the past two years, but Zee TV has managed to match her steep asking price, which, sources have told mid-day, is around Rs 4-5 crore for a five-minute routine.

In the past, the organizers of IIFA 2016 were keen on Chopra being a part of their line-up, especially since the awards gala was in New York — where she resides during her work in the USA. However, she dropped out of the show because they reportedly failed to agree to the amount she quoted.

This year’s star performers for Zee Cine Awards also include Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Sidharth Malhotra, Jacqueline Fernandez and Bhumi Pednekar.  Sources reveal, “This time, Priyanka’s act, which is likely to be the finale of the evening, is one of the highlights. Also, Zee Cine is the only awards show at which she is performing.”
