Be it the commercial success or critical acclaim, Deepika Padukone is a leading lady in every aspect of her career, quite literally. Be it Piku or Bajirao Mastani, she adds so much depth to her characters every time that it feels like the roles were written keeping her in mind.
Padukone, who became the only Indian actress this year to enter the Forbes’ globallist of highest paid heroines was at the 10th position and it didn’t come as a surprise to any of us. It was definitely a well-deserved victory.
While Kangana Ranaut kept saying that she earns close to Rs 11-12 crore for every film, there was no truth to the claim it seems. Earlier there were reports that Deepika will be paid close to Rs 11 Crore for Padmavati and it is turning out to be true.
According to a recent DNA report that is doing the rounds, Deepika will be paid more than her alleged beau Ranveer Singh. Even though the reports are yet to be confirmed, we are really hoping that this turns out to be true.
Apart from Padukone being a well deserving actress for the remuneration, this will surely be one positive sign as we will be one step closer to pay parity in Bollywood.
