If speculations are to be believed Deepika Padukone has received a massive 8 crores for her character in Bajirao Mastani. While hearing about the actors in Bollywood like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar demands such fees, this is the 1st time an actress has received this kind of amount. This makes Deepika Padukone the highest paid actress of recent years in Bollywood.
Deepika who is presently the most sought out actress in Bollywood had signed Bajirao Mastani without even talking about money issues with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. She picked Bhansali’s movie over Shuddhi as she wanted to be loyal to the man who cast her in Goliyon Ki Raasleela- Ram Leela. Her role in the movie fetched her a Filmfare Award for Best Actress.
Now her competitors like Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha and Sonam Kapoor have to up their game or be left behind.
