Has Aishwarya Rai Bachchan hiked her fee to Rs 10 crore for her next film? – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is in demand and how.
2018 certainly belongs to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan! Where last year everyone missed watching the beauty on the big screen; this year the actress is coming up with not one but three films in the offering namely – Fanney Khan co-starring Anil Kapoor, Raat Aur Din remake and a yet-to-be titled edgy thriller where she’ll be seen essaying a double role. Now although, all three films seem very promising but what’s more is the fact how Ash has reportedly also hiked her fee to Rs 10 crore for one of her films; just because it requires her to play a double role.
Reveals a source in interaction with Mid Day, “Since Aishwarya has a double role, the film will require extensive preparation. It will be a time-consuming project, which means she will have to let go of the other films that come her way. The fee she has quoted is fair. The producers have agreed to the amount without any negotiation. Though trade insiders are squirming at the possibility of a 44-year-old female actor walking home with a fat pay quench, producer Prernaa Arora believes that Ash is putting a lot at stake for her film, and the fee is warranted.”
Just yesterday, Prernaa Arora had also spoken to us about her multiple collaborations with Aishwarya stating, “Working with Aishwarya on Fanney Khan has been a pleasure. Now, there are two more films we are collaborating on with her. Siddharth Anand will be co-producing the film with me, which is an edgy thriller. This film will see Aishwarya in a double role and we will soon finalise the leading man opposite her. Talking about the remake of Raat Aur Din, it will be a homage to Nargisji and is a special project for all of us. Aishwarya has already said that she would love to play the main role. I have also discussed the project with Sanjay sir (Dutt), and he has approved of the idea and our choice of Ash to play the role originally essayed by his late actress-mother.”
Let’s not forget, this won’t be the first time Aishwarya will be seen playing a double role onscreen. She had a dual role in her first movie Iruvar where she played Puspavalli and Kalpana. Later, she was also seen in a double role in Jeans so that way fo for her getting into two characters at once won’t be a big deal. But then, do you think it’s fair for her to charge Rs 10 crore for a film? Thoughts in the comments below.
