Deepika Padukone is ruling Bollywood these days! She is the higest paid actress of tinsel town and rumours were rife that she is being paid more than beau Ranveer Singh in Padmavati.
But now the official spokesperson of Bhansali has revealed to a news agency, "The reports surrounding the star cast remuneration for Padmavati are completely false. The rumours are baseless and are being blown out of proportion.''

A report in a leading daily stated, ''Ranveer Singh has been paid around Rs 7-8 crore for the film, whereas Deepika has reportedly been paid Rs 11 crore, excluding taxes. Sometime back, there were reports that producers Eros International had asked Bhansali to cut down on his lavish expenses and extravagant sets, after news of Deepika's exorbitant fees were out.''
The daily also reported that after seeing how a period film like Mohenjo Daro bombed at the box office, the makers of 'Padmavati' are being extra cautious about their finances.
Rumour has it that Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have been confirmed as the lead stars for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati. However, no official announcement about the same has been made yet.
Not so long ago, it was reported that Ranveer Singh is planning to leave the movie because of Shahid Kapoor.
Trouble started when Sanjay Leela Bhansali secretly met Shahid Kapoor, who will play Deepika Padukone's husband in Padmavati. Ranveer rightfully wanted to see how much of the screenplay belonged to him after Shahid's entry. The director was said to have been upset with Ranveer's demand and rumour has it that he even threatened to replace Ranveer with Hrithik Roshan.
But after all the hue and cry, Ranveer is finally back in the movie again!
