How much did it cost Mukesh Ambani to hire Beyonce for Isha's sangeet?
Multiple reports have calculated how much Beyonce charges for private appearances, and the sum is pegged to between $3 and $4 million. That's Rs 21-28 crore. However, according to Time magazine, the singer charged more than $3 million for performing at this year's Coachella festival, but organisers had previously hinted that headliners could charge close to $4 million per gig. And Beyonce was the highest earning woman in the music industry in 2017, with earnings exceeding $105 million.
