No Laxmibai for Kangana?

Big talk, bigger demands and the The `11-crore fee that Kangana Ranaut has been allotting to herself may just remain a lot of talk amounting to no extra zeroes on her paycheque. We have it from reliable sources that the film Rani Laxmibai, the one that was meant to catapult Kangana into the 11-crore fee-club, has now been postponed indefinitely.

Says a source close to the development, “Though Ketan Mehta is keen on taking the project forward and though after Sardar Patel, Mangal Pandey and Dashrath Manjhi, it was his dream to make a biopic on Rani Laxmibai, it seems unlikely that he’d be able to execute his vision, given the budget involved.” Ketan maintains that the project has been pushed to next year.
