She might not have won too many accolades for her film roles, but Katrina Kaif has delivered some of the biggest hits when it comes to dance numbers. Tracks like Sheila Ki Jawaani from Tees Maar Khan (2010) and Chikni Chameli from this year’s Agneepath have established her as a dancing icon in Bollywood. As a result, her demand for stage shows and performances is soaring.
However, on December 31, the day when most actors are busy performing at such shows, Katrina has decided to take a break. This year, she received over eight offers for New Year’s Eve events. However, she has turned them all down.
"Katrina never performs on December 31. That is her rule. Every year, she spends the time from Christmas till New Year with her family. Even this year, three organisers from five-star hotels have offered her Rs 5 crore each, and four others have offered her gigs worth Rs 4.75 crore each. But she has refused all of them," says a source.
The actor is expected to fly to London in two weeks to celebrate Christmas and New Year with her sisters, brother and mother. But the shooting schedule of Dhoom:3 might spoil her plans a bit.
The source adds, "The shoot is scheduled from December 11 or 12 in Mumbai and is supposed to last a month. But the dates aren’t locked yet, so we can expect some changes. This time around, her family might have to fly to India as Katrina’s plans aren’t confirmed. Things will be clearer close to Christmas, but she will definitely be with her family to ring in the New Year."
