Abhishek Bachchan returns Rajkumar Santoshi’s signing amount

We had earlier reported about Rajkumar Santoshi’s Ladies and Gentleman being stalled because of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s pregnancy. Rumours were rife that the Bachchans were not too happy when the producer requested his signing amount back.

Santoshi had apparently signed both Aishwarya and Abhishek for his film and paid them the signing amount of Rs 50 lakh. Amitabh Bachchan’s tweet about Ash’s pregnancy had left the producer in a lurch but he was empathetic and rejoiced in the Bachchan family’s happiness. But he had not forgotten his signing amount. When Santoshi approached the Bachchans, Abhishek graciously returned the whole amount. Now that’s called being professional. Nonetheless, Santoshi still plans to make another project with Abhi-Ash soon enough. Guess, all’s well that ends well!
