Actress Deepika Padukone is currently shooting for her upcoming film ‘Padmavati’ alongside Shahid Kapoor and rumoured boyfriend Ranveer Singh. Reportedly, she is getting paid Rs 12 crore for playing Rani Padmini in Sanjay Leela Bhasali’s film.
Deepika plays the protagonist Rani Padmavati in the SLB film. Now, if recent reports are to be believed then Deepika has charged a bomb for playing her part in the film that also stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. Considering that the actress has already been featured in the Forbes’s list of highest paid female actors in the world, her current fee comes across as quite surprising.
According to report, the whopping amount has become Deepika’s permanent fee. Apparently, she was approached for a film with one of the Khans, and when she quoted the same figure, the producer was taken aback by the staggering amount, especially because it was a two-heroine film, and the other leading lady would have her own demands.
