However, contrary to the belief, a bitchy actress who had just gotten off the hotline with a film producer, called to say, “Why do actresses make such a big noise about how much they get paid for movies? Earlier it was Kangana Ranaut and now sources close to Deepika Padukone have revealed that she got paid `10 crore for Padmavati. The industry always knows who got paid how much, and people outside the industry don’t care about star pay cheques, only the performance, so what’s with all this gloating? And let me tell you Deepika got that amount for Padmavati because the makers didn’t want to pay her a percentage of the film’s profits that she demanded. She may be in the position to demand but the industry doesn’t believe in giving a share in profits to the ladies, only the male actors get that. Dips was paid `8 crores for Piku, plus a fraction of the profit. She asked for the same for Padmavati. She was denied a share in the profits and offered `10 crores flat, which she agreed to.”
Profit share or no profit share, this deal is definitely very huge! Who do you think is this bitchy actress? Tell us in the comments below and we'll be back with more updates right here, only on BollywoodLife.
