Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has often spoken out about the shocking gender pay gap in Bollywood. And to reinforce his position, he has demanded the same amount as his male counterpart in conversation. This cost him the movie.
The 35-year-old actress spoke with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The creator hoped to rehire Ranveer Singh and Deepika together in his latest film Baiju Bawra. According to one of the production employees, Deepika supports her decision not to continue the conversation. “She demanded the same salary as her husband Ranveer. Not a penny more, not a penny less. “
The talks have stopped. And the creator plans to get closer to other actresses.
Bollywood is apparently not ready for these negotiations yet.
Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali worked with Deepika and Ranveer on three hit movies; Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastaani and Padmaavat. The public would have liked to see this duo together again in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. But we will have to be patient for that.
