Deepika Padukone opts out of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Baiju Bawra’?

Deepika Padukone, who had been reported to be in talks with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his next ‘Baiju Bawra’, has apparently decided to opt out from playing the female lead.

Reported on Box Office Worldwide, it’s said the reason behind Padukone’s decision is based on the remuneration for the role as it was less than that offered to her husband, Ranveer Singh, who had been approached for the male lead role. A source said, “Apparently, Deepika wants the same remuneration as her husband. Not a penny more, not a penny less.”

Although this will be disappointing news for fans, a close source at Bhansali Productions said, “In a way, it works out for the better. Four Ranveer – Deepika films in a row from Sanjay Leela Bhansali would have been excessive, don’t you think?”
