Too soon? Ranveer Singh increases his fee to equal Deepika after 'Padmaavat' success

Although, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmaavat' starred three A-list Bollywood stars sharing the screen-space, Ranveer Singh seems to be taking away the most from it.

The 'Band Baaja Baaraat' actor been receiving critical acclaim and appreciation for his performance as 'Alauddin Khilji' in SLB's controversial magnum-opus - a role, which he says, required him to go to extreme emotional and physical lengths.

As fans continue to shower praise at Singh's acting chops, he has been making the most of it by promptly responding to all the praise and explaining in detail the hard work and "mental torture" he had to endure to prepare for the role. 

Riding high in the new-level of success the actor has reportedly hiked his fee now - equally it with his co-star and girlfriend, Deepika Padukone - who was the highly billed actor in the movie.

Deepika was paid a whopping Rs 13cr while both Shahid and Ranveer earned a Rs 10cr each.

Ranveer has now decided to equal his total sum to Rs 13cr 

According to a trade source (as quoted by Deccan Chronicle):

“Ranveer will command this price now. Had this film released all over India, his asking price would have been bigger too. As for Deepika, she charged the price since she allotted lot more days for the film, as compared to a movie that otherwise takes only 60 days of shoot. Her price for other films as Rs 13 crore now after Padmaavat stands vindicated too,”

The actor's energetic off-screen presence has perfectly overshadowed the equally marvelous job done by co-star Shahid Kapoor - who actually had a more seasoned, subtle and controlled performance in the movie.

But rejoice Ranveer, it is your time to shine - especially because you made sure of it!
