The Dev D actor is terribly unhappy about the fact that his entire remuneration (reportedly around Rs 20 lakh) for Aisha, is less than co-star Sonam Kapoor's hair and costume budget.
But Abhay Deol definitely is not among those who'd sit back and sulk. So, he has devised a novel way to take his revenge.
Abhay Deol has insisted that he will only eat food prepared by a special cook who has been flown down from Mumbai. And the dishes he prepares are quite expensive. The hapless producer (Sonam’s sister Rhea Kapoor) has offered to order food from any eatery in the capital where the film is currently being shot, but to no avail.
Reportedly, the expensive cook and his expansive cuisine have caused the budget to expand to indecent proportions.
Abhay plays George Knightley in Aisha.
