Anurag Basu is making a film titled “Silence” starring Ranbir and Priyanka Chopra. After Katrina Kaif opted out of it, getting an actress to replace her in the film has become a major problem for the director. All efforts to bring in Asin failed and Deepika was approached for the role. But, she refuses to commit herself until certain changes are made to strengthen the dramatic content of her role.
There’s also the unresolved issue of the money. According to sources, Deepika will agree to step in only when her pay is on par with Priyanka who plays a mentally challenged girl in “Silence”.
At last, Deepika Padukone is slowly but surely learning how to demand and get the best deal in Bollywood.
