Bollywood actress Malaika Arora is currently breaking the headlines these days. The actress reportedly cancelled an Australia show last-minute over non-payment of fees.
Yes, according to reports, The actress was to reportedly perform at a fashion event in Australia earlier this week and fly off to the island country on Wednesday but she apparently changed her mind moments before taking the flight to Australia.
According to the report, Malaika decided to drop out of the event after the organisers failed to oblige to the financial commitments made during the deal. “The organisers had promised to pay her the full amount before Wednesday. Since they did not honour their commitment, Malaika declined to go. It was a fair and professional call taken by her,” a source close to the actress told mid-day.
“Passes for the VVIP, VIP, Gold and Silver tables of the Denim & Diamonds event were already sold.” source added.
When the actress was asked to corroborate if the event was cancelled due to financial issues with the organisers, Malaika attributed it to “misunderstanding” and said the event has been pushed to another date. “Yes, there was some misunderstanding, but it has been ironed out, and the event has been rescheduled,” mid-day quoted her as saying.
However, the organisers described the whole scenario as unfortunate, adding there was no fuss from Malaika’s end. “The event got cancelled due to various reasons. There was no issue from the celebrity’s end. It’s just bad luck and we will plan the event again soon,” said one of the event managers.
