Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been busy with Fanney Khan last year which will release during Eid 2018. And f you're an Aishwarya Rai fan, you must be well aware of the fact that the diva has already signed her next film, a remake of Nargis Dutt's iconic film, Raat Aur Din.
According to Mid-day, Aishwarya has asked for a very fat cheque for the film, a whopping Rs 10 Crores.
The Raat Aur Din remake will be produced by KriArj Entertainments, which is co-owned by Prernaa Arora and Arjun N. Kapoor. According to Mid-day, the makers have agreed to Aishwarya's alleged demands without a second thought.
Here is what they said: "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."
After Sarbjit, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Fanney Khan (yet to release), this will be the actress' fourth film after she made a comeback with 2015's Jazbaa. While Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was a great hit, both Sarbjit and Jazbaa under-performed at the box office. Now, with the new project in the pipeline, "Producer Prernaa Arora believes that Ash is putting a lot at stake for her film, and the fee is warranted," reported mid-day.
Aishwarya's Fanney Khan features Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao. The movie releases in June and clashes with Salman Khan's Race 3.
