Mumbai: Noted filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi got actually desperate about his money which he had paid both to Abhishek Bachchan and his wife Aishwarya Rai. He reached at Bachchans’ residence ‘Jalsa’ to get his money back. The reports say that Sanjoshi paid Rs. 25 lakhs each as a signing amount to both husband and wife for his movie ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’ but due to Ash’s pregnancy, the movie could not begin. Rajkumar waited long but at the end, he got simply desperate and arrived at Bachchans’ home to ask for his money.
The sources said that Rajkumar Sanotoshi, who left relying on letters and the film governing body, knocked Jalsa to recover his money i.e. Rs. 50 lakhs. Last week, he was seen stepping out of Bachchans’ residence. Well, it is obvious that Abhishek and Aishwarya wouldn’t have been happy seeing him at their place for the money recovering but the professional Jr. Bachchan returned the money to Rajkumar Santoshi who eventually took the sigh of relief.
Santoshi, in an interview, confirmed that he has received his amount back from Bachchans and he also announced that he would make a film with both again next year.
Santoshi’s film ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’ was to hit the floors last year in 2011 but it got delayed due to Aishwarya’s pregnancy since she had been signed in a leading role. Now Santoshi said that post the birth of the kid, the role does not suit Aishwarya Rai at all. Rajkumar Santoshi then approached to Preity Zinta for Aishwarya Rai’s replacement who showed her tendency to work with Abhishek but later the filmmaker decided not to carry on with the film.
Well, Aishwarya lost two projects due to her pregnancy – Heroine and Ladies and Gentlemen. But since baby is far important and must be than the movies, no matter if the movies have gone.
