According to an inside source, the reason for this hefty remuneration is that director Jugal Hansraj a new name and Uday Chopra isn’t a big draw either. Also, YRF hasn’t seen a blockbuster of late. But PC is non-committal on the subject: “I can’t talk about my remuneration, I never will.”
Her fee has evoked mixed reactions in Bollywood. “Such high figures are good to the ears and used to bargain for a better deal,” says a source with a corporate studio. Counters director Madhur Bhandarkar, who directed Priyanka in Fashion, “If they’re paying Rs 6 crore, I’m sure they must have gauged her market standing.”
While Priyanka is getting this much, Kareena takes home a package of Rs 3-5 crores and Katrina Kaif Rs 3-4 crores. After Love Aaj Kal, Deepika Padukone, too, charges anything between Rs 1.5 to 2.5 crores.
