Bollywood stars have mesmerized us with their out of the box roles and songs for a long time. However, money plays a very important role when it comes to their fees. There have been examples in the past when stars have given mind-blowing performances without even charging a single penny for their roles in songs and films. That is what that made them special and different from everyone else. Here is a list of celebrities who didn’t charge any money for these popular films and songs:
1. Kareena Kapoor Khan
Bebo did the chartbuster “Marjaani” in Shahrukh Khan’s “Billu” for free. Later, when she starred in “Dabangg 2” for “Fevicol Se”, she did not charge a penny for it either!
2. Priyanka Chopra
International diva PC starred in the hit item song called “You Get Me Rocking And Reeling” in SRK’s “Billu” for free.
3. Deepika Padukone
Today, Deepika is one of the highest paid actors but she began her career with “Om Shanti Om”, for which she did not take any money.
4. Katrina Kaif
We all loved Katrina’s “Chikni Chameli” avatar in “Agneepath”. Katrina did not charge any money for it and KJo gifted her a Ferrari as a thank you gesture!
