Did Alia Bhatt pull out of an appearance with Ranbir Kapoor over payment issues? |


The launch of Kapil SharmaThe new comedy adventure, 'Kapil's big Indian show,' saw a star-studded line-up that included members of the Kapoor family. Ranbir Kapoor, Neetu and Riddhima. However, one notable absence was Alia Bhattprompting speculation as to why the star was left out.
According to a report by TimesNow, Alia did not appear in the episode due to alleged payment issues. Sources told the portal that the streaming giant hosting the show “couldn't afford Alia”, which led to her absence from the show.

It has been alleged that guests on the show are compensated for their appearances, unlike Kapil's TV concert where stars appeared to promote their new projects. While the budget allocated for each week's episode is described as “substantial”, it appears insufficient to accommodate both Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. Consequently, the makers opted to continue with Ranbir and his family, leaving Alia out of the initial lineup.

However, fans need not worry as Alia is anticipated to appear in a future episode of the show. Her absence from his episode appears to be the result of financial negotiations rather than any personal or professional discord.

Interestingly, Alia recently made her Hollywood debut with the streaming platform's action-packed feature film 'Heart of stone,' starring alongside Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan. Despite receiving lukewarm reviews from critics, the film gained attention for its staggering $150 million production budget, making it one of Netflix's most expensive original productions.
Reports indicate that Alia earned approximately $500,000 for her supporting role in 'Heart of Stone'.
