The upcoming film Fanne Khan has been embroiled in one or the other problem, ever since it went on the floors. After Prernaa Arora-led KriArj Entertainment stepped out as co-producer, Fanne Khan faced a severe financial crunch. Now, after  T-Series has taken over as bankrollers for the project along with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Productions, the situation does not look any better.

According to a report by India Today, T-Series is revising pay cheques of the cast. While no information is known about the male actors — Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao — it is speculated that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been asked to take a pay cut.

It is already known that major filming of Fanne Khan is almost complete and only a few scenes and songs are yet to be shot. Hence, this cost-cutting would come across as nothing less than a shock.

In Fanne Khan, Aishwarya plays a glamourous rockstar, known for her singing and dancing skills. Her character is reportedly kidnapped by Anil Kapoor, who plays a father to a budding singer and wants to make way for her in the music industry. The film also stars Divya Dutta in a pivotal role.

Fanne Khan, directed by Atul Manjrekar, is slated to release on 3 August and clash with Irrfan Khan-Dulquer Salmaan-Mitila Palkar-starrer Karwaan at the box office.
