Rolling in Deep: The Queen of Indian Cinema, Deepika Padukone, is Bringing in the Big Bucks
This has considerably heightened her brand value as she is now in talks to secure Rupees 8 crore for an advertisement deal, reports India Today. The shoot is set to be on 3 consecutive days but there has been no official confirmation on the finalisation of the deal.
If the deal goes through, Deepika will be the only female actress to earn around as much from endorsements as Bollywood greats including Shahrukh Khan and Aamir khan. She will be catapulted to the same bracket of International cricket stars MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli.
In the past, Deepika has given countless Bollywood hits including Piku, Tamasha and Bajirao Mastani in the mix.
Her long-time beau and Bajirao Matani co-star Ranveer Singh also increased his fees for live performances after the success of the film. India Today reports that it is speculated he now charges as much as Shahrukh Khan for his gigs.
Could we be looking at Bollywood’s richest couple in the near future? On the pace these two are going, it sure seems that way.
Deepika has just finished shooting for her upcoming Hollywood debut, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and is looking for more projects in Hollywood while Ranveer is promoting his movie Befikre.
