Now, a latest Bollywood Hungama report states that Aamir has reportedly decided to waive his fee for the film to compensate for the producers’ loss after the film failed at the box office. A source shared with the portal, “If Aamir Khan decides to charge his acting fees, Viacom 18 Studios would have entailed losses of nearly Rs. 100 crores. However, that loss is something that Aamir Khan has decided to absorb himself. Now, the producer will lose nominal money.”
The source further added, “He gave four years to the film but has not made a single penny from it. His opportunity cost on Laal Singh Chaddha is upwards of Rs. 100 crores, but he has decided to absorb all the losses taking the complete blame of failure on himself.”
