In a recent interview, the director told trade expert Komal Nahta that Ranbir did not charge the fees he usually takes for movies.
" I think without this, we wouldn’t have been able to make this film. It is a very very big thing because it wouldn’t have been possible to make this film without that kind of support, and I don’t know how many other people can do this," Ayan said.
Talking about Alia's remuneration, Ayan revealed that she said yes to the film eight years back when she only had two or three films in her pipeline. He also said that the actress fees for this film was not a huge amount.
"But that small amount also, by the time we completed the filming, Alia said that her fee has gone into the making of the film, so whatever budget we got, we put it into the film," Ayan added.
