If you thought that it’s the top actors who are laughing their way to the bank, think again. Do you know how much Sanjay Leela Bhansali got paid for directing Guzaarish? Take a guess! Rs. 27 crore! Yes, Rs. 27 crore was the director’s fee. Hrithik Roshan is said to have charged Rs. 15 crore and Aishwarya Rai, Rs.5 crore. If all the figures mentioned above are correct, it means, the total bill of the top three people associated with the film is Rs. 47 crore.
With such phenomenal fees charged by the filmmaker and the two lead stars, the total budget of the film including the cost of production, promotion and release would easily be in the region of Rs. 85-90 crore. In all probability, Sanjay Bhansali’s is the highest fee paid to any Hindi film director so far. The film is jointly produced by UTV and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Now that we know that Sanjay Bhansali is also the music director of the film, we’re wondering we’re sure he’s grown richer with the new talent!
