Is Bhansali upset with Deepika’s tall claims of being the highest paid actress?
First things first! If Deepika Padukone has got a whopping pay check for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next, she truly deserves it. She has only got better with every film and has managed to surprise the audience with her performances. Talking about her acting fees in a period drama to be directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, it is said that she has manage to negotiate close to 11 crore plus taxes. Reportedly for Ram Leela she was paid close to 1 crore that means it is 11 times more than what she got paid in 2014.
However rumour doing the rounds is that Bhansali is not too happy with Deepika’s disclosure about the signing amount. The director who even keeps his casting news under wraps didn’t want something like a remuneration fee of an actor reach the media. Reportedly, it is believed that Bhansali reached out to Deepika with a clear message to keep quiet about this.
None the less, she continues to do Bhansali’s mammoth of a project and will start shooting for it next month. If the 11 cr pay check is really true, then this definitely makes her the highest paid actress of this generation. Her business manager is in for a big treat for negotiating this yummy deal.
