EXCLUSIVE: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan given a pay-cut for ‘Fanne Khan’?
However strange it may sound, this is true. There have been enough problems with ‘Fanne Khan’ already, after the film changed hands. Prernaa Arora of KriArj Entertainment was producing the film earlier but after the recent controversies surrounding her production house, the industry has developed cold feet in associating with her. But the result has stunned many.
T-Series, who took full control of ‘Fanne Khan’, has sent a diktat to the big actors of the drama. They have allegedly asked Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to take a massive pay cut for the film. Prernaa had promised Ash around Rs 7-8 crore when she first spoke to her. They mutually agreed on the same amount but now that she’s out of the picture, Ash’s fees have been reduced.

Apparently, Bhushan Kumar made a call to the actress and her team and told them to reduce her fees by a whopping 30 percent. Now, Ash will only be able to draw around Rs 5 crore as her complete remuneration for the film. Two songs and a few scenes still remain to be shot.
