Earlier, reports had claimed that Kareena Kapoor Khan had demanded 12 crore for the film. While the actor did not clarify whether she did so, she did respond to the reports in vague terms.

She told The Guardian in an interview, "I make it quite clear what I want and I think that respect should be given. It’s not about being demanding, it’s about being respectful towards women. And I think things are kind of changing.”

She added, "Just a few years ago, no one would talk about a man or woman actually getting equal pay in a movie. Now there are a lot of us being very vocal about it."

Kangana has quite a few projects lined up next. These include her action films Dhaakad and Tejas. She was most recently seen in the political film Thalaivi.

Kareena Kapoor Khan, on the other hand, has been working on her next film with Aamir Khan. Laal Singh Chadha, an official remake of Forest Gump, has been shot in parts of Punjab and slated for a Christmas 2021 release.
