Deepika Padukone surely is Queen Bee of Bollywood! The tag rightfully deserves DP as she emerged as one of the most talented and hot actresses in today’s time. Well, we did inform you that Miss Padukone has topped the list to have the highest number Instagram followers. We had also reported that the diva beat all the other highly paid ladies of B-town with Padmavati. In fact, we were the first ones to report that the actress is being paid massively for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. However, we just found out the actual fee she will be receiving for the film.
A leading tabloid, Mumbai Mirror, has reported that Deepika will be getting Rs. 12.65 crores, to be precise, for Padmavati! A source was quoted telling the tabloid, “For Ram-Leela she got Rs. 1 crore, for Bajirao Mastani which came two years later, it was Rs. 7 crore, this time it is Rs. 12.65 crore, making her the first Bollywood actress to break the Rs. 10 crore barrier.” Turns out on June 13, Bhansali’s team gave her a final offer of Rs. 11 crore plus taxes (which adds upto Rs. 12.65 crore) on mail, to which DP gave a go ahead by okaying it. Kudos, Miss Padukone!
So far according to murmurs in the industry, Priyanka Chopra received Rs. 6 crore to romance Uday Chopra in Pyaar Impossible that was released in 2010. Same year, Kareena Kapoor Khan was reportedly paid Rs. 7 crore for the third installment of Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal 3. Kangana Ranaut was roped in for Rs. 5 crore to lend her name to Union Minister Vilas Paswan’s son Chirag’s debut in Miley Naa Miley Hum.
Well, there are too many figures being spoken here! It is quite an achievement as Deepika has beaten all the highest paid actresses and emerged as the Queen Bee! Currently, the actress is working on Padmavati, which has shaped up brilliantly, according to a source, and will be seen romancing her beau, Ranveer Singh. The film is written by Prakash Kapadia. For the role of Padmavati’s husband onscreen, we hear that DP will have the final word on who will play the role!
