A lot of Bollywood celebs who are now big names in the industry were once a part of Punjabi music scene. Actors such as Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Malaika Arora Khan and many more were seen in Punjabi music videos during the 90s.
We are well aware of the fact that the Punjabi music industry has grown many fold in the last few years and now Punjabi singers have successfully paved their way into Bollywood.
Now that things are bigger and better, makers are trying to pitch glam queens for their videos. Recently, Jacqueline Fernandez, has been approached to be part of one such album. According to DNA, “Jackie was offered to star in a Punjabi music album. Jackie’s last film, Judwaa 2, which released in September, did great business in Punjab, too, and so she was approached for one such video.”
Adds the source, “She has been offered Rs 5 crore for the music video. That’s huge.”
