The Bachchan’s Unforgettable Tour has been one of the most hyped Bollywood tours, however it seems as though they lost another member of the star-packed gig. After losing the sizzling Lara Dutta due to a knee injury, Bipasha has walked out on the tour claiming that “pricing was one of the issues”.
After the success of the multi-starrer Race, Bipasha called the organizers of the show and asked for double the amount she was initially paid. When they didn’t agree, she walked out of the tour. A source claims, “With the success of Race, Bipasha felt that she deserved to be paid better. She felt that she was justified in asking for a big hike for performing overseas (the shows will be held in USA and Canada). Recently, Akshay Kumar who’d walked out of the tour because of money issues, walked back in after the organisers agreed to his terms and conditions. It is believed that Aishwarya is getting a whopping 1 crore for the same tour, and Bips felt she too deserved something closer to that amount. It’s believed that she asked for the same amount as Ash but the organisers didn’t agree.”
Bipasha hasn’t said what her price hike was but she does admit to not being part of the tour anymore. She says, “The modalities of the tour didn’t work out for various reasons and yes, pricing was one of the issues. I have good relations with Wizcraft. I wish them a super successful tour”.
Rumour has it that Lara and Bipasha really opted out because they didn’t want to compete with Aishwarya. Being the Bachchan’s show, Lara felt she would be overshadowed by Aishwara. Bipasha has denied such rumours stating, “Please do not look for anything more than this. I have tremendous respect for Amitji and lots of affection for Abhishek and Ash as people and actors, so please don’t look for unnecessary reasons. The reason I have cited is it”.
It seems as though the star-studded show is slowly losing some of its key members. Stay tuned as we will bring you more updates as soon as possible.
