Deepika Padukone is called Queen bee for a reason. The actress is a highly bankable and every film announcement of hers creates havoc on social media. Few days back, when she announced her film with Prabhas produced by Vyjayanthi movies and directed by Ashwin Nag, the internet went berserk.
Today an online portal reported how the South makers got Deepika on board.According to reports, the actress was paid a whopping Rs 20 crores for the film. The report suggests that Deepika wasn’t interested in the project initially. She put up a strong resistance but the makers were keen to have her in the film. A source told the portal, “Apparently, Deepika these days, asks for a remuneration on par with what the leading man of the film gets. She rightly feels she has earned herself a place of gender equality in her profession.” Of course, Deepika couldn’t match Prabhas’ fee, who being paid Rs 50 crores, Deepika is being paid Rs 20 crores and that makes her the highest paid actress in the history of Indian cinema. Now thats what a true Queen is all about.
The reports further states that the role of the female lead wasn’t substantial. But now with Deepika Padukone coming on board, they are planning to work on the character and make it pivotal. Both the actors are currently waiting for their respective projects to begin post lockdown, then they will start this film. While Prabhas has Radhe Shyam coming up next, Deepika Padukone will work on Shakun Batra’s upcoming film.
