Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone’s impressive performances in Piku and Bajirao Mastani have catapulted her to the top slot. The actress is currently enjoying her time in the sun after bagging a prestigious Hollywood project, XXX: The Return Of Xander Cage.
If sources are to be believed, the Piku actress has turned pricey and has upped her fees for her third collaboration with ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Reportedly, the dimpled dame has hiked her fees for SLB’s next Padmavati and is now touted as one of the highest-paid heroines in Bollywood. Earlier there were reports that Deepika has hiked endorsements fees too.
Apart from Deepika, Padmavati will also feature Ranveer Singh. The makers of the film are currently scouting for an A-lister for one of the prominent roles in the film. The upcoming epic love saga is based on the life of Emperor Allauddin Khilji and Queen Padmavati of Mewar. Deepika will play the title role and Ranveer is tipped to essay the role of Allauddin Khilji.
