R. Madhavan Pockets Rs.1 Crore For ‘Aap Ke Liye Hum’
Versatile actor, R. Madhavan is back in Revathy Varma's forthcoming flick, ‘Aap Ke Liye Hum’. Before, the actor opted out of the movie but decided to return after he was paid a whopping sum of Rs.1 crore for a small part in the women-centric film that has Jaya Bachchan, Ayesha Takia and Raveena Tandon in lead roles.
Revathy Varma said, "But what to do? It's very difficult to get male stars for female-oriented films. We've paid Maddy Rs.1 crore out of which he has already received Rs.25 lakh. He has already shot for five days with us”.
The director revealed that the film was earlier titled as ’Chaassni’ but it was later changed after Jaya Bachchan’s intervention. "We called the film 'Chaassni'. But Jayaji put her foot down, said the title was too sweet. So we've a new title 'Aap Ke Liye Hum', the filmmaker said.
Revathy Varma insisted that she wanted Ayesha Takia in the film and could not imagine anyone else in the role. "I couldn't imagine anyone else doing that role. If you remember Jyothika has done the part in the original (Tamil movie 'June R'). And Ayesha has the same childlike warmth and a nurturing quality to her personality. I couldn't think of anyone else”, she admitted.
