Who is the highest paid actress in Bollywood?
A few months ago, Kangana Ranaut had claimed that she was the highest paid in Bollywood saying that she makes Rs 11 crore per film.
Soon afterwards, there were reports that Deepika Padukone was charging over Rs 12 crore for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next film Padmavati. She has not confirmed this but it was alleged that a person connected to a production house had seen the amount in some mail exchanges.
Allegedly, this was the highest that any Bollywood heroine had ever charged for a film.
But now that Padmavati has apparently run into trouble with its lead actor Ranveer Singh allegedly opting out of the film, there is speculation about when the period drama will start and which studio will fund the project.
With the film allegedly in trouble, what will happen to the pay cheque that Deepika was allegedly promised? – CINEWS
