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.
