If sources are to be believed, organisers of a fashion show in Dhaka had approached Sushmita Sen to walk the ramp but when she quoted an astronomical amount, they decided to sign on Malaika Arora Khan.
Says a source, "Sushmita had asked for Rs 50 lakh, which the organisers could not afford. So, they approached Malaika to be the showstopper and she agreed to do it for Rs 10 lakh."

However, at the end of the show, the organisers were left disappointed as Malaika allegedly went back on her word regarding a meet-and-greet session with her Bangladeshi fans. The source adds, "Meeting the fans and clicking pictures with them was a part of the agreement. But after the show got over, Malaika spent barely two minutes with the fans. Her team asked them to stop clicking pictures and she just got up and left."
Malaika, however, refuted the allegations. "I met my fans and was asked to leave due to security issues. They (organisers) couldn't control the crowds," she reasons.
