Sanjay Leela Bhansali is said to have been paid more money for Guzaarish than the film's lead pair Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Bachchan put together. Shocked? Well if our sources within the film's production house, UTV is to be believed then it is true.
Our sources reveal, "The Saawariya maker has been paid a whopping Rs.35 crore for Guzaarish. But well it"s not just for his direction. Bhansali has been associated with the project in the capacity of a director, writer and the music director. Hrithik and Ash have been paid their market price which goes on to add another Rs.15 crore; added to that, the rest cost of making has made the complete budget of the film a huge Rs.80 crore."
A trade pundit quotes, "Sanjay Leela Bhansali may be a filmmaker but he is not less than a big star himself. He has got an exceptional script on hand with Guzaarish and it"s definitely worth every penny that he has been paid for. His last film, Saawariya may have not emerged a big hit but he is damn sure to strike back big with this one."
