The 'Cocktail' actress turns down a hefty sum to perform in her first ever stage act at an awards gala
Diana Penty, who made her B-Town debut in Cocktail opposite Saif Ali Khan, was recently approached by an event agency for her first stage performance. The model-turned-actress was requested to perform to her film's tracks - Tumhi Ho Bandhu and Daaru Desi - at an upcoming awards gala.
She was apparently offered R 40 lakh for the show that the organisers claimed was the highest amount offered to any debutant for a stage act.
However, according to the sources Diana turned down the offer!
Says a source, `As she was contractually obligated to attend a brand event during the same time frame, there was no way she could have accepted it.
Diana wouldn't have had any time to rehearse for it. She had to decline the offer as she wanted her first appearance on stage to be perfect and needed time to rehearse which she would have been unable to during the same duration.`
