Guess who’s given five back-to-back hits this already? Aamir, Shahrukh? Nah! It’s Miss Padukone who’s been doing the high scoring jigs at the box office. Cocktail, Race 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and now Ram Leela. 5 of them have crossed the 100 crore mark and the recent has certainly has the utmost potential to cross it.
If rumours are to be believed, the makers have already lined up to sign her making her the highest paid actress in Bollywood!
Trade experts now strongly believe that Deepika is a very safe bet at the ticket windows. ”She can be counted in the hero’s league,” says a trade analyst.
Another trade expert is more wary in his assessment and says, “Deepika has come a long way from the days of her plain Jane avatar in her debut film OM SHANTI OM. Today, she is a sex goddess. She has worked her way up. She should continue to work with big stars in woman-oriented films.”
An insider further adds, “Deepika Padukone in all her films is a delight to look at and her performance has more nuances. It would be extremely difficult to figure which film to nominate her for”.
Interestingly, Deepika too has decided to make hay while the sun shines and has hiked her fees, thus making her the highest paid actress n Hindi film industry..
