Any guesses how much the Aashiqui 2 babe, Shraddha Kapoor was paid for a small role in Punit Malhotra’s Gori Tere Pyaar Mein? Well, Rs. 0. Yes! You read that right. Shraddha was paid not one penny for the film, in which she plays a south Indian girl, Imran Khan’s fiancee.
Newbie Kapoor showed us an exceptional performance in her first film Aashiqui 2. And considering her huge success, one would expect the young actress to charge a bomb. But Shraddha did just the opposite.
A source said, “When Shraddha read the script, she really liked it. Since she also wanted to work with the banner, she agreed to come on board instantly without any remuneration. Her role isn’t a lengthy one, but she plays an important part. Her role is crucial to the storyline.”
We hear that the actress was keen on working with Dharma Productions and so when this opportunity came her way, she immediately grabbed it without second thoughts, ya for free. We also hear that Shraddha and Punit have known each other since the latter’s I Hate Love Storys days. And so, this was another reason why she appeared in the film for free.
Punit Malhotra the director of the movie said, “I bumped into Shraddha outside a theatre on the day I Hate Luv Storys (2010) released. I’ve known her since then.When we wrote the character of Vasudha, I had her in mind, so I casually met her for coffee and sounded her off about the role. She read the script over the weekend, and without batting an eyelid, said yes. She came on board as a friend and we have credited her part as a friendly appearance. Shraddha was very sweet to work with.”
