Or Richa Chadha. She made her debut when she was not even 25 and they wanted her to act as a mother! She said: “I got a call from a random casting director, who hadn’t even seen ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur ‘, to play Hrithik Roshan’s mother in ‘Agneepath’. I asked if they even knew what I looked like! They said ‘No, but we heard you’re playing Nawaz’s mother….’!”

Deepika Padukone - Padmavati

Until this movie will be released, everyone will be talking about it. Probably even after the release! The film is an account of the legend of Rani Padmini a legendary Hindu Rajput queen, mentioned in Padmavat an epic poem written in 1540 CE. According to Padmavati, she was the wife of Rawal Ratan Singh, the Rajput ruler of Mewar. There are so many controversies surrounding this movie but one which is the most recently talked about one is the amount of money Deepika received!

According to sources: “There are a lot of speculations about the pay structure of ‘Padmavati’. However, Sanjay Sir was clear that the film belongs to Deepika. The film is mounted on its female protagonist Deepika Padukone with the title being a testimony of the actress’ investment in the project. As for the remuneration, Deepika has taken home a whopping Rs. 13 crores, while Ranveer and Shahid share equal digits that read close to Rs. 10 crores respectively.”

Deepika Padukone - Piku

And Padmavati is not the first time that Deepika got more money than the male actor of the movie! Piku is about A cab driver, played by Irrfan Khan, who is caught between a dysfunctional father, played by Amitabh Bachchan, and daughter, portrayed by Deepika Padukone, as he drives them to Calcutta. The movie was a huge success as it earned ₹1.41 billion (US$22 million) worldwide.

There is a reason to why Deepika Padukone is listed as one of the highest paid actresses worldwide! Amitabh Bachchan in an interview said: “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 coz I have been working for so long. Maybe I am not so important. But I think what’s the harm? If the woman’s character is that then it’s okay.”

Kangana earned 11 crores for Katti Batti! Find out more on NEXT page!

Kangana Ranaut - Katti Batti

Kangana Ranaut and the amount of money that she charged for the movie Kangana Ranaut left everyone stunned! Katti Batti is about Mahdy, an architect, who falls in love with a girl who possesses a unique attitude about life. The movie did not do that well at the box office in comparison to the budget which was ₹34.0 crore (₹25.9 crore was earned!). However, that did not affect the amount of money the actress charged which was 11 crores.

She commented on this matter saying: “There was a point when my complaint wasn’t rational and yet, I felt that way even earlier. But the data wasn’t supporting me. ‘Queen’ did make money, about Rs 100 cr, but still, I wasn’t sure how much money could I ask for after that. Also, giving a 250 cr money is a different thing altogether. My getting Rs 11 cr is a small step towards that equality you are talking about, and as a woman, I would also want to see… to be treated as an equal.”
