How much does it cost to be Deepika Padukone?

Looking like the Chennai Express beauty is not cheap – you need to have big bucks and the right people backing you

Deepika Padukone is a stunning beauty. We’ve often heard her Om Shanti Om co-star praise her to the skies. In an interview during the release of Chennai Express Shahrukh Khan talked about Deepika‘s appetite and her love for food. King Khan also had eyebrows wiggling madly when he said he hadn’t seen her workout or follow any kind of fitness regime. But we found that Dips has a secret to that gorgeous body. And this one involves a whole lot of money. The buzz is that Dippy trains with fitness expert Yasmin Karachiwala and the makers of her new film Happy New Year were left in a state of shock after having had to pay a whopping Rs 35,000 a day to keep the Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani heroine in perfect shape during the Dubai schedule of the Farah Khan directed movie. That means that the producers had to shell out almost Rs 10,50,000 – that’s a lot of zeroes! – on Deepika‘s trainer for the month-long shoot. Ouch!

While Ms Padukone has always credited her genes for her body structure and fitness levels, we now know that there’s a price that the actor pays to keep those enviable curves in that great shape. Or should we say – that is the price her producers pay to keep the leggy beauty looking fabulous!
