Kartik Aaryan, who stars in Shehzada and has also co-produced the film, during a recent interview with ETimes revealed why he returned his remuneration for the film. The actor explained that the decision was only taken by him after he came on board as a producer. The actor told ETimes, “Earlier I was not a producer for the film. I had taken my fees and remuneration but then there was some crisis that was happening and because the film was going through a crisis, they needed somebody to step up so I asked the producer that I will give up my money for the film and that’s how this whole this whole production thing and me becoming a co-producer.”
When the actor was asked again, “So you returned your remuneration?” He said, “Almost and that freed the film of the burden in a way. Also, I had signed the film even before Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. So both the films were going hand-in-hand. The budget of this film wasn’t very extravagant thankfully. But since it was an actioner, it does take a little budget and there were certain issues that we were facing at one point because of which I had to give it (his fee) up.” He added, “And we are in a good spot, good situation with the film and the budget right now.”
