Bollywood star Deepika Padukone has been on the rise in the industry, delivering one superhit film at a time. With about eight, 100-core films to her credit, the actress has earned her place on the top as the highest-paid actress in Bollywood. While we have heard various rumours about the star earning huge paycheques for her films, a recent interview saw her put on the hot seat to set the record straight.
In an interview with a fashion magazine, Deepika was asked how she felt about being the highest-paid actress in the Hindi film industry. Interestingly, the actress said that feels “guilty” about it. Stating that she is not one to talk about where she lives or how much she earns, Deepika said she is often conflicted because she knows that such conversations are necessary. She went on to add that a part of her feels “guilty” because she feels that it is important to put the film first before any of the other parameters. The star even went on to add that becoming a producer has now helped her understand things a little better now.
‘Chhapaak’, directed by Meghna Gulzar and produced by Deepika is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Deepika will be seen playing the leading role opposite Vikrant Massey. The film slated for a release on January 10, 2020.
