Deepika Padukone Was Paid More Than Her Male Co-Star In This Film


Amitabh Bachchan is currently promoting his next film Pink, directed by Shoojit Sircar. During an interview with BollywoodLife, when Bachchan Sr. was asked about industry perceptions and prejudices, he replied:

“I don’t know if this is relevant or not. Whether because of circumstances this has happened but I can tell you one thing, in Piku, Deepika Padukone was paid more than me and that says two things – one that she is obviously more important than me and two I have lost my price tag because I have been working for so long. Maybe I am not so important.”

Well well, we know Deepika Padukone made it to the Forbes top ten highest paid actresses, but this is an interesting revelation.
