When we watch movies or TV series, we never think what the stars have to do with their roles. They change their look, get trained or spend days and nights on the film set. They do the unbelievable and brave things like going bald and of course, they are making great money out of it, but they also have their limits and demands.
We have listed 10 Bollywood stars and their SHOCKING demands in their contracts. You need to see what is allowed, what is not and how much it costs. Also, check for the most unique of them all at the end!
1. Kareena Kapoor Khan
Things changed for Kareena as she became Kareena Kapoor Khan. When Kareena Kapoor wed Saif Ali Khan in 2013, she set the condition that from now on she won’t be able to do kissing and ‘bedroom’ scenes in her films. She refused even to touch the lips of her co-star Ajay Devgn in ‘Satyagraha’ (2013) during a romantic song shot.
2. Salman Khan
Not only women refuse to participate in intimate scenes and close-ups. Salman Khan a very celebrated Bollywood star and co-star to Sonakshi Sinha in Dabangg also refused to touch lips on screen. It is said that he doesn’t want to do this because his mother might watch the movie he plays in and it makes him uncomfortable. Intimacy yes, but only in real life, not with friends from a movie.
3. Ali Zafar
This Pakistani actor also has a no-kissing clause in his contract. But it means even more – no intimacy at all. In movie “London Paris New York”, he got a body double to do the scenes. It is said that the reason of his demeanour is that he cannot stop thinking how the audience in his country would react to such affection on the screen. What do you think about this?
4. Shah Rukh Khan
King Khan of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan is very masculine and brave in the movies, he admits that he does not know how to ride on a horse properly. One time even, a horse galloped off him and he got so scared and felt extremely in danger. Since that day he has a “no horse-riding” clause embedded in his movie contracts.
5. Tanuj Virwani
Some are afraid of small rooms, other spiders or snakes. Like actor Tanuj Virwani, who has a clause saying ‘no-snake’ since his movie “One Night Stand” opposite Sunny Leone. Virwani suffers from herpetophobia, which is characterised by an abnormal fear of snakes and reptiles. It may sound strange but he felt extremely uncomfortable during the filming of the movie in Thailand jungles.
6. Priyanka Chopra
Priyanka is very popular not only in India. Recently, the actress is making it big in Hollywood. Despite this, she wants to maintain the same standards as always. She had a “no nudity” clause in her contract for her American TV series “Quantico”. Probably the same was with the contract for the new “Baywatch” movie, in which we will see her next to Dwayne Johnson soon.
7. Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar does not work on Sundays. It is not only his own rule but also a clause in his contracts. Fortunately for producers, he broke this term to finish filming the Milan Luthria’s ‘”Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2″ and Karan Malhotra’s “Brothers”. We wonder what made him do it.
8. Hrithik Roshan
‘If I work more, I earn more.’ That is why an actor Hrithik Roshan got a clause in his contract for “Mohenjo Daro” movie, saying that he will receive more money than what was agreed on the settlement document if he is required to play more than the scheduled period of time due to delays or changes. We wonder if it paid off?
9. Kangana Ranaut
This 31-year-old actress became very influential with this clause of hers. She is not only one of the highest paid actresses in the industry today but recently she also received a power of final edit for her films. This condition means that she must approve the final montage of the movie and that the film can be released only after her consent.
10. Sunny Leone
After putting up steamy performances in ‘Jism 2’ and ‘One Night Stand’, Sunny Leone has decided to not indulge in on-screen kissing in her films henceforth. Apparently, the former adult star doesn’t mind doing intimate scenes and will continue to do so if the script demands but with a ‘no kissing’ clause. As a matter of fact, her previous films ‘Ek Paheli Leela,’ ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai,’ ‘Mastizaade’ and ‘One Night Stand’ did not have the actress puckering up to her male co-stars. The last time Sunny indulged in some on-screen kissing was in her 2014 film ‘Ragini MMS 2’. This may come as a complete shock to most of her fans and filmmakers in the industry, but the actress has decided to stand by what she has said.
As a bonus, we’ll tell you a hilarious clause which was put forth by none other than our Mr.Perfectionist, Aamir Khan. Aamir allegedly signed Dhoom:3 after getting an assurance that the franchise’s got to end with it. Guess, there’s no hope for Dhoom 4, then!?
Thank you, Aamir, we are grateful.
