Kangana Ranaut, who, according to Mumbai Mirror, has quoted Rs. 15 crore to two producers has became Bollywood's highest paid actress. The amount is Rs. 2 crore more than what Padukone has charged for Padmavati.
Earlier Deepika Padukone is the highest paid actress in Bollywood. As she has given the back-to-back hits in year 2015-2016.
This will take Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut's cold war to next level. Earlier they were good friends at one point. Ever since, the Deepika Padukone actress dedicated one of her awards to Kanagana Ranaut, they have drifted apart.
When Deepika Padukone was excusing herself from the Tanu Weds Manu Returns screening citing prior professional commitment widened the gap between them.
Kangana Ranaut in an statement said when asked about Padukone's absence from the event :
"I did extend an invite to Deepika, but I never got a response. I have always been supportive of my contemporaries and will continue to be, but it is hurtful when you don't get the same kind of support,"
Kangana Ranaut, when asked what she thought of Padukone's compliment :
"I got genuine compliments from Shah Rukh Khan who called me directly, Salman Khan, Aamir sir called me directly. Amitabh Bachchan also called me directly and even Priyanka (Chopra). Everyone called me, but Deepika never called me"
