to exotic locations around the world for an event is commonplace. However,
these collaborations come with its own share of troubles.
According to mid-day, Malaika Arora was set to travel to Australia for a fashion event last to be held at Victoria (Australia) on July 15 but was compelled to cancel her appearance at the last minute over differences with the organisers.
A source told the
tabloid, “Passes for the VVIP, VIP, Gold and Silver tables of the Denim &
Diamonds event were already sold. While she was set for the performance till
Tuesday, she called it off the next day, few minutes before she was to board
the flight. 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."
When the newspaper contacted Vikas Paul of Elite Vin Productions and Friends India Entertainment (FIE), the organiser, he said, "The event got cancelled due to various reasons. There was no issue from the celebrity's [Malaika] end. It's just bad luck and we will plan the event again soon."
When Malaika was
quizzed whether remuneration was the reason behind her backing out, she said,
"Yes, there was some misunderstanding, but it has been ironed out, and the
event has been rescheduled."
