Sources say Deepika Padukone went laughing all the way to the bank post her shoot for her Rajnikanth co-starrer.
Being roped in opposite South superstar Rajnikanth is no mean feat and Deepika Padukone managed to emerge on top last year after a tough battle with her peers that included Asin, Vidya Balan, Katrina Kaif and South actress Anushka. Insiders from the Kochadaiyaan sets say Dippy was paid a staggering amount of Rs 3 crore for a two- day shoot schedule, setting a new benchmark in Bollywood.
Though the actress has a full fledged role in the film, thanks to some new technology ( Motion Captured Photorealistic Technology) she was required for only a couple of days.
Says a source, “Director Soundarya Rajnikanth Ashwin shot the scenes with Dippy in record two days. The technology enables each expression and motion to be recreated on screen after capturing every gesture of the actor.”
Dippy apparently had to wear a specially designed body suit and filmed her scenes sans makeup.
Says Soundarya, “Initially Deepika was a bit apprehensive about how the technology would work. But she soon gave her complete commitment to the project. We completed her portions in 48 hours.”
Deepika and the official spokesperson of the production house remained unavailable for comment.
Deepika Padukone’s Tit for Tat to Katrina Kaif!
While one is an ex-flame of Bollywood’s heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor and the other is his present girlfriend.
Yes, we’re talking about Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif.
They’re not just arch rivals in professional front but in their personal front as well.
But when Deepika and Ranbir parted ways, it’s Katrina who jumped in and bagged Ranbir’s Love!
Since then Deepika is apparently envy of Katrina Kaif and Kat’s recent bikini pics with Ranbir which were out wide in media has added fuel to Deepika’s resent on Katrina.
And with the blockbuster success of Chennai Express, Deeps is back to form and even her much awaited project with Rajnikanth is nearing release. This has turned her fortunes overnight.
What’s the latest buzz is that Deepika has bagged an endorsement of a beauty soap ad which has had Katrina earlier.
And that too Deepika has managed to get Rs 2 crore extra than what Kat received then.
It is learnt that earlier Katrina was paid Rs 4 crore for the ad, and now the Soap firm is reportedly ready to pay Rs 6 crore for Padukone.
Isn’t it a tit for tat Kat?? Katrina’s loss is Deepika’s gain.
