Diana Penty declines 40 lakh offer!

Diana Penty, who debuted in Cocktail opposite Saif Ali Khan, was recently approached for her first stage performance. The model-turned-actress was requested to perform to her film’s tracks on stage.

She was apparently offered Rs 40 lakh for the show that the organisers claimed was the highest amount offered to any debutante for a stage act.However, the actress delined the offer.

Says a source,

As she was contractually obligated to attend a brand event during the same time frame, there was no way she could have accepted it. Diana wouldn’t have had any time to rehearse for it. She had to decline the offer as she wanted her first appearance on stage to be perfect and needed time to rehearse which she would have been unable to during the same duration.

Adds the source,

Diana was extremely keen on making her debut in a stage show. She has always enjoyed dancing and is a trained Kathak dancer.
