New Delhi: Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone is slowly and steadily becoming the most valued entity of Indian cinema. Be it her Hollywood debut or Hindi blockbusters, the 30-year-old star is continuously expanding her fanbase among the audience across all age groups.
But, did you guys know that she was paid more than megastar Amitabh Bachchan for Shoojit Sircar's 'Piku'. Yes, you read that right. A few days back, an interview of Big B quoted him as saying that he was paid less than the 'Bajirao Mastani' actress for the movie.
Recently, Amitabh explained why he revealed the same. “I was asked about that there is inequality about women in the society and I believe that there should be equality and to give an example I said you know Deepika is playing the main protagonist and yes she was paid more than me,” he told PinkVilla.
