Last time someone asked Aishwarya Rai Bachchan about her profit-sharing venture on Jazbaa with director Sanjay Gupta, she has good-naturedly told the journalist, "Come to my office, and we will discuss it." We presume, the expectations from the film were quite tall, given all the curiosity surrounding Ash's comeback to films mixed with her superstar status and her closely guarded personal life!
However, an article in DNA reported Sanjay Gupta as saying, "I have always discussed finances with Wing Commander Ramesh. I told him that whatever my share is, I will share with her on 50-50 per cent, which includes my Intellectual Property Rights. The basic arrangement is between the three partners — Sachiin Joshi, Zee and myself. The big money is going to start from week three when Jazbaa will go on video-on-demand and paid preview. That is a very big market. You can only gauge the actual revenue of a film after a month and a half."
Hmmm....so where does that leave Ash?
