Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali have come together a third time for Padmavati after Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani.
If buzz is to be believed then Priyanka Chopra was in the running for this role, however Deepika managed to bag it. A source tells us that since Padmavati is her first film post her Hollywood venture, Deepika decided to increase her fee by a few crores. Although we don't exactly know how much, but the new price is somewhere around Rs 11-12 crore, thereby making her the highest paid Bollywood actress today.
Also, with this, Deepika is giving many Bollywood actors a run for their money. It's a no brainer that the new breed of heroes are being paid much lesser compared to her.
