Deepika Padukone is certainly in the finest phase of her acting career. While her films are minting gold at the box office, she is also set to mark her vibrant entry in Hollywood! With back to back hits, she is now being dubbed as the multi-crore actress!
Post her Bajirao Mastani success, Deepika got double busy with pretty good assignments and now she has reunited with Bajirao Mastani maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his next period drama, Padmavati, for the third time.
But Deepika has taken Bhansali to negotiation table this time around! Highly placed sources informed that Deepika has hiked her fee for Padmavati.
Deepika was busy filming for her debut Hollywood project, xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage in the west and hence had no Bollywood movie in her kitty. It was also said that Deepika was considered for Kabir Khan’s next film with Salman Khan, Tubelight.
For those of you who do not know the actress is touted as one of the highest paid Bollywood heroines. Recently there was debate about who amongst Deepika, Priyanka and Kangana Ranaut was the highest paid actress. The Queen heroine’s team claimed that she was drawing over Rs 11 crores, but there was furor in the media when news of Ms Ranaut charging a little over three crores per project leaked. The scenario turned a battle ground with everyone comparing Deepika and Kangana’s track record.
With Deepika upping her fee sum, we bet there will be more debate and discussion around which actress in Bollywood is the highest paid today.
