Aishwarya Bachan returns the ‘Heroine’ money to UTV
Mumbai: Pay cheque was given back by Bollywood heroine Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to the producer. She returned the cheque back to the producer, as she was not any more a part of the casting of the project. None of the officials of UTV had asked the cheque back from her; still Aishwarya Rai feels she is not entitled for it anymore. However, they have accepted the cheque from her according to sources.
Aishwarya deserves the payment because she has performed in the shooting for eight days and taken part in the look tests and photo shots for the film. Sources say that Aishwarya has also given her precious time. She has all rights to hold the money but she has given it back to the producer. Sources furthermore mentioned that the reason for returning the cheque was the declaration of her pregnancy and the cheque amounted to “some lakhs”.
The production team and Aishwarya’s media person gave a confirmation that Aishwarya returned the pay cheque. Aishwarya feels she is leading a comfortable lifestyle and was in no intention to get any blame.
After Aishwarya’s exit from the film, Kareena Kapoor entered into the same role after accepting the project for a fee of eight crore.
