It may seem to be incredible, but the truth is that ‘one film wonder' Deepika Padukone is proving to be costlier than former Miss World Aishwarya Rai to the film producers.
Before her entry into Bollywood,
Deepika was talked about more because of her string of boyfriends, but today she is also in the news for demanding exorbitant rates for acting in films.
Soon after the resounding success of the Shah Rukh-Deepika starrer ‘Om Shani Om', a producer from south India Shankar, who made the super hit film ‘Shivaji –The Boss' with Rajnikanth, had approached the former
model for the female lead role in his forthcoming film ‘Robot', but Deepika is reported to have charged such a high fee which left the producer stunned as well as silent.
Next, Shankar approached Aishwarya
Rai-Bachchan for the role, but there is no confirmation whether the actress has said yes.
Sources close to the former beauty queen revealed that though money is no factor with Aishwarya, she is basically running a tight schedule.
After having completed the magnum opus ‘Jodhaa-Akbar',
Aishwarya has just completed shooting for an international project ‘Pink Panther – 2' and ‘Sarkar Raj'. Currently, the actress, her husband and actor Abhishek Bachchan and mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan are
holidaying in the ‘pink city of Jaipur in Rajasthan.
Producer Shankar has once again signed up his favorite super hero Rajnikanth for ‘Robot', where the actor will be seen in the role of a scientist who creates a robot for the benefit of mankind.
robot, like Frankenstein, turns again mankind and Rajnikanth works hard to bring it back to control. A whole lot of special techniques and special effects will be used in this semi-science fiction.
Now, what is worth mentioning is that perhaps the success of ‘Om Shanti Om' has gone into the head of Deepika, who has let go of an opportunity to work in a big budget film opposite South superstar Rajnikanth only
for the sake of money.
This move may prove to be costly for Deepika and she may not even get the opportunity to make amends. For Bollywood does not offer time to make amends!
