Mumbai: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan might not have established herself back in Bollywood completely, but that doesn’t stop the actress from getting interesting roles. After ‘Fanne Khan’ with Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao, Ash has now been roped in for Nargis’ 1967 film ‘Raat Aur Din’s remake.
The actress is playing a double role, which means she will have to put double of her efforts and time, for which she will be charging a whopping amount of Rs. 10 crore. The producers however have no qualms with that whatsoever.
"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," a source told mid-day.
The source adds, "The makers have discussed the tribute film with Sanjay. Since Aishwarya has wrapped up her parts for 'Fanne Khan', she will start prepping for the film soon. Though trade insiders are squirming at the possibility of a 44-year-old female actor walking home with a fat pay cheque, producer Prernaa Arora believes that Ash is putting a lot at stake for her film, and the fee is warranted."
