There are dubious reports in the press that Aamir Khan , in all his compassionate consideration, has decided to “compensate” for the abysmal failure of Laal Singh Chadha by foregoing his remuneration.
On some probing , this appears to be more a PR exercise than anything else, to salvage the star-actor’s image.
A source in the know informs, “Aamir has taken a major part of his remuneration for Laal Singh Chadha already. Another remaining portion of the remuneration was to be obtained from the profits of the project.Since there are no profits , Aamir’s remuneration stands cleared.”
The losses are to be borne entirely by Aamir’s co-producers Viacom 18 who have suffered two crippling boxoffice blows in two weeks—Shabaash Mithu and Laal Singh Chaddha.It will be a very long time before Viacom can get back on its feet .
In the meanwhile Aamir has moved on. Friends say he is on a long holiday abroad with his family, while his co-producers do all the loss-mopping and damage control.
