Deepika Padukone feels that when people give more stress on monetary gain, it compromises the beauty of filmmaking.
“At the end of the day we are all making movies because we all love films and we should not get into the space of negativity where we are discussing who is getting what amount of money. In that process we are losing the beauty of film making. Money is the least important to me. Fans appreciation is the most important,” states Deepika.
According to Deepika Padukone, the payment disparity between male and female actors in Bollywood is a concern but it should not become a cause for conflict.
She feels that actresses are trying hard to change the irregularity in pay scale in the film industry.
“If you comparing our pay scale with the men, then yes it is very less. If you are comparing what girls used to get before and what they are getting in the last one or two years then I can say that there has been a major shift and we are hoping and trying. But this is not a war,” Deepika said in an interview.
Deepika states that she never chooses a project based on how it will fare monetarily. She strongly feels that if one does that then it is a wrong reason to do a film. For her Box Office at that level is not so important.
“Like Ram Leela, we never thought that the film will make such business. I have got the Filmfare Award and the film has made Rs 100 crore as well. You have to choose films from your heart. And also awards are important to me. It is a sign of appreciation for your hard work,” clarifies Deepika.
Deepika Padukone who will be next seen opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan in director Farah Khan’s Happy New Year states that she is looking forward to sharing screen space with Hrithik Roshan.
“Hrithik is someone I really look forward to working with. People say we would look great together on screen”.
Besides Hrithik Roshan, Deepika has yet to work with Salman Khan. “Films are all in destiny. You can’t force a film to happen. People do ask me a lot why I have not worked with Salman Khan yet. Both of us would like to work with each other but every film has a time.”
Here’s wishing Deepika Padukone all the best for Happy New Year and we do hope that her dream run continues!!
