Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone Talk about evolving over the years and birthday girl Deepika Padukone certainly takes the cake away. Deepika who has had a string of consecutive successes is on a roll with all her films bringing in the much needed critical acclaim for her along with stupendous returns at the box office. And with that, she has now become the reigning queen of Bollywood. So much that she's charging a bomb for her films now. But let us clear one thing first. She totally deserves it!
At a time when the Khans, the Kumars and the Roshans are charging over Rs 50 crore for one film, the actresses are lagging far behind. The topic of 'disparity in remuneration meted out to actors and actresses' has been the topic of discussion for years now but few people are certainly trying to bridge the huge gap. While there was a time when Deepika would get around Rs 6 crore for a film, with the recent successful stint, she has transformed into this bankable superstar for whom producers are readily pooling in money.
