Pooje Hegde To Get Paid THIS Whopping Amount For Salman Khan’s Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali?
Pooje Hegde is being paid four times more for Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali by producer Sajid Nadiadwala than she was for Housefull 4
Superstar Salman Khan is currently busy shooting for his much-awaited film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, which is scheduled to hit the theatres on Eid 2020. Ever before Radhe hit the theatres, Salman Khan also already booked Eid 2021 for his next flick, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali.
Salman Khan’s Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali will not feature Katrina Kaif or Sonakshi Sinha as female lead who have already shared screen space with the superstar in multiple movies. According to media reports, Salman Khan will be romancing South beauty, Pooja Hegde in KEKD. Notably, Pooja Hegde has already debuted in Bollywood opposite Hrithik Roshan in Mohenjo Daro.
Confirming the news, producer Sajid Nadiadwala told Mumbai Mirror, “Having worked with Pooja in Houseful’ 4, we felt she was a perfect fit for this film. She has an amazing screen presence and will make for a good pair with Salman. They will bring freshness to the story.”
According to the latest report in Bollywood Hungama, after delivering Housefull 4 in Hindi and Ala Vaikunthapurramloo in Telugu, Pooja Hegde has increased her remuneration for featuring opposite Salman Khan in Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali.
A source told the Entertainment website, “She’s being paid four times more for Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali by producer Sajid Nadiadwala than she was for Housefull 4. And rightly so, since the entertainment market is success-driven and the leading men hike their prices after a hit. Why should boys have all the fun?.”
Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali will reportedly go on floors in October this year and will be high on action and humour. However, Salman will be seen putting up a fight not against personal vendetta but against a bigger cause, as per the report.
Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali will be written and produced by Nadiadwala and Farhad Samji will direct the film. The film will hit the theatres on Eid 2020.
