Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s spokesperson says reports stating that actress Deepika Padukone has been paid around Rs 11 crore for her next film “Padmavati” are completely false.
According to the reports, Deepika is the highest paid actress in Bollywood and after bagging a Hollywood project and delivering back-to-back hit films in Bollywood, she has hiked her fee.
“The reports surrounding the star cast remuneration for ‘Padmavati’ are completely false. The rumours are baseless and are being blown out of proportion,” the spokesperson of Bhansali told IANS.
To be directed by Bhansali, “Padmavati” also stars Ranveer Singh.
Deepika and Bhansali have come together for the third time after the success of “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela” and “Bajirao Mastani”.
