The actors by whom we get inspired, work really hard for their roles. Some change their looks completely, get trained by professionals, does brave things like going bald, losing or gaining weight and so on. They do earn really good sum of money through this but they also have their own limits and demands which they mention in their contracts prior.
Below are 10 Bollywood stars who have made shocking demands in their contracts:
1) Kareena Kapoor Khan
Kareena has been a great actress, she has done all that it needs to become a great actress that she is today. She got married to Saif Ali Khan in the year 2013, and after that she added something in her clause. The new clause was that she won’t be doing any kissing or bedroom scenes in her movies. And so, she refused to even touch Ajay Devgn’s lips in ‘Satyagraha’ (2013) while shooting a romantic song.
2) Salman Khan
Salman has never done any intimate scenes on screen. He proved that, not only women, men also might get uncomfortable in doing such scenes. He does not even agree to touch lips on screen. They say, he does it because his mother watches his movies and he gets uncomfortable.
3) Ali Zafar
Ali is a Pakistani actor and he also has some clauses in his contract. His clause not only includes no-kissing but no intimate scenes what so ever. His reasons are that, he can’t stop thinking what the audience in this country would think of him and how would they react to such scenes.
4) Shah Rukh Khan
SRK being the King Khan of Bollywood looks very brave in the scenes that he does. He is brave indeed, but did you know our brave SRK is afraid of horses? Yes, you read it right. He doesn’t know to ride horses properly. He had even fallen from a horse once and got very scared and felt danger. Since then he added in his contract a “no horse-riding clause.”
5) Tanuj Virwani
Like any other common people, even celebrities have their own phobias. Some may be afraid of spiders or snakes or some may also be scared of dogs. Tanuj had a clause that says ‘no-snake’ when he signed, “One Night Stand” opposite Sunny Leone. He cannot work with snakes as he suffers from herpetophobia that is an abnormal fear of snakes and reptiles. As his movie was shot in the jungles of Thailand, Tanuj wasn’t comfortable at all.
6) Priyanka Chopra
Priyanka Chopra has become quite a known face now to Indians as well as non- Indians. After she entered Hollywood, she mentioned a clause in her contract which read “no nudity,” for her American TV series ‘Quantico.” She did the same with the contract for “Baywatch” which will be releasing soon, where she be seen working with Dwayne Johnson.
7) Akshay Kumar
Unlike other clauses, Akshay’s is a bit different clause. He has clearly mentioned in his clause that he won’t be working on Sundays. But he had broken his clause twice, once to complete the film, ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai 2,’ and second ‘Brothers.’
8) Hrithik Roshan
While shooting for the film ‘Mohenjo Daro,’ Hrithik Roshan made a clause in his contract. The clause read that if he has to play more than the scheduled period then he should be payed more. As he believes, “If I work more, I earn more.”
9) Kangana Ranaut
Kangana Ranaut is one of the highest paid actresses in the Bollywood industry. She is known for her excellent acting skills. She has the power of final edit of the films as mentioned in her clause. So, the ‘Queen’ of Bollywood has the condition that the final montage of the film and only after her consent can the film get released.
10) Sunny Leone
The gorgeous Sunny Leone had given some really steamy performances in her movies, for example Jism 2 and One Night Stand. After these movies, she added to her clauses that she won’t be getting involved in any on-screen kissing henceforth. The actress doesn’t mind doing intimate scenes but with her ‘no-kissing’ clause.
