No doubt, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is a stunner even at 43. Having left behind her contemporaries, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, with her brand value and popularity, has hiked up her fees to a whopping Rs 10 crore for her forthcoming film. With the kind of stardom she holds, it doesn’t seem like the actress is charging more but fair enough for her to demand such an amount for a film, where the actress is playing dual roles and invest more of her time than usual. No wonder that the makers of the film too had no qualms but agreed to the amount without any negotiation.
According to a report in Mid Day, A source, in a statement to Mid Day, revealed, “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 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.”
Meanwhile, let us not forget the fact that this isn’t the first time that the actress is playing dual roles onscreen. Aishwarya had a dual role in her first film Iruvar, where she essayed the characters Puspavalli and Kalpana. The actress had also done a double role in Jeans.
