Unbelievable! Deepika Padukone charges 8 crore per ad

With three back to back hits like ‘Piku’, ‘Tamasha’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’, Deepika Padukone is at the top of her career and her Hollywood debut with Vin Diesel made her more chargeable. Professionally, she is at the peak of her career and according her price also hiked enormously. It is unbelievable but it is true Deepika Padukone is charging a whopping eight crore per advertisement.

“When Deepika’s team asked for that amount, they weren’t sure they would get it. But they have to constantly up the star’s price according to the market value and Deepika has had a fantastic year with Piku and Bajirao Mastani, so she is in the position to hike her fee. Whether the brand will pay her that amount, remains to be seen. Deepika is currently negotiating for `2 crore plus per day. If she gets the price she is asking for, it will catapult her into the biggest league,” a source reportedly told an entertainment portal.

The source also added, “She is currently in talks, through her brand team. The 8 crore tag is her asking price for a three-day shoot. It’s typically a certain number of days per year. For brand shoots, normally the payment is per day. Deepika charges 1-5 crore for a day. But 8 crore seems a bit high as only Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor command that kind of fee for endorsements. Among sportsmen, only MS Dhoni and now, Virat Kohli recently have started charging close to that figure.”

However, there has been no any official announcement about this deal.

In Bollywood, Deepika Padukone is busy shooting for a dance number ‘Raabta’ starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon.
