Deepika Padukone to create history with Padmavati 

For the first time in the history of Hindi Cinema, an actress will be paid more than her male counterparts. You read it right! Deepika Padukone will be paid more than Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. The director thinks that it is Padukone’s movie and she should get her due.

A source close to the production said, “There are a lot of speculations about the pay structure of ‘Padmavati’. However, Sanjay Sir was clear that the film belongs to Deepika. The film is mounted on its female protagonist Deepika Padukone with the title being a testimony of the actress’ investment in the project. As for the remuneration, Deepika has taken home a whopping Rs. 13 crore, while Ranveer and Shahid share equal digits that read close to Rs. 10 crores respectively.”

Well, looks like Padmavati will break some stereotypes!
