Priyanka Chopra to be paid EQUAL to Deepika Padukone’s Padmaavat fees for Bharat?



Priyanka Chopra has been offered Rs. 12 crores for her next Hindi film Bharat, which is equal to Deepika Padukone's remuneration for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat.

Priyanka Chopra is enjoying some downtime in the United States after wrapping up the third season of Quantico. She will soon return to India to begin work on her next film, Bharat. Priyanka will star opposite Salman Khan in the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial.

Priyanka Chopra is one of the highest paid actors in Bollywood and her team quoted Rs. 14 crores as her remuneration for the film Bharat, as per a report in Mid-Day. She is being paid Rs. 12 crores which is equal to Deepika Padukone’s fees for Padmaavat.

Deepika is the highest paid female actor in the country today and had admitted on BFFs with Vogue that she was paid more than the male co-stars Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh for Padmaavat. However, with Priyanka Chopra commanding the same remuneration, it seems that both the actors are the highest paid.

Deepika and Priyanka are two actors who have been vocal about the need for pay parity. Male superstars are offered a much higher remuneration.

Priyanka had said in an interview to BBC that she does not like being paid ‘less than the boys’. Priyanka had said that she was once offered 5% of what was being paid to the male co-star.

Bharat is the remake of the South Korean film Ode to my Father. The film will focus on partition and will be shot in Mumbai, Punjab, Delhi and Abu Dhabi. The film will release on Eid 2019 and will go on floors in August.
