A video of Katrina Kaif being heckled by fans after a live performance as part of the ongoing Dabanng Tour in the US and Canada has been shared online. Katrina can be seen leaving a venue when she is verbally abused by fans who came to catch a glimpse of the Bollywood actors that are taking part in the show.
The minute-long video shows Katrina walking towards her car, surrounded by security, when a woman screams at her for not taking selfies. The woman (off-screen) mocks Katrina and says she thinks too much of herself to interact with fans who’ve waited so long to meet her.
Katrina stops in her tracks and turns around. “Ma’am, please calm down,” she says, as her security detail tries to cool the situation down. They form a barrier between Katrina and the woman, who appears to be accompanied by several others in her protest.
But before things could get worse, Katrina begins taking selfies with other fans, looking poised in front of the camera. Meanwhile, the woman keeps taunting her. The video ends with the woman saying that they’re here “for Salman Khan. Only for Salman Khan!” Other people could be heard praising Katrina for how she handled the situation and her grace.
Besides Katrina, whom Salman referred to as his ‘baby’ in a recent press interaction, he is joined by Daisy Shah, Maneish Paul, Guru Randhawa, Prabhudeva and Sonakshi Sinha on the tour.
A DNA report speculated that Katrina is being paid handsomely for the tour. “Katrina is obviously the biggest star from the lot, after Salman. Plus, she’s a terrific dancer. Her final solo act will surprise everyone. She’s being paid around Rs 12 cr for the whole tour (eight shows) whereas Jacqueline and Sonakshi are both getting somewhere between Rs 6 cr to Rs 8 cr. But Jackie’s remuneration is a little higher than that of Sona,” the report quoted a source as saying.
