After riding high on the success of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat, why is Deepika Padukone not signed any movie till yet? According to reports, she was supposed to begin her work on Vishal Bhardwaj's gangster drama, Sapna Didi but due to her Piku co-star Irrfan Khan's health condition, things are not going forward.
Padmaavat crossed Rs. 500 crore worldwide
While a lot of speculation is going around, as to why has Deepika not signed movie despite numerous offers from leading directors. Some believe that she is taking her time to recover from injury, while others claim that she's preparing for her much-talked about wedding.
But none of that is true. A source close to the actress revealed, “Her back/neck problem is being properly attended to and she will be fine soon. As for marriage plans, they in no way impinge on her career. The reason Deepika is not signing anything new is because of the quality of roles coming her way. They are all big-banner films with top heroes. But nothing even remotely as author-backed or inspiring as Padmaavat. At this stage in her career, Deepika is no more content playing the conventional leading lady. It has to be a script that offers her as much to do as the male protagonist."
“She has gone on-record to claim she was paid more than the leading man in Padmaavat. Big banners like Yash Raj Films and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions are not willing to pay her that kind of money,” the source added.
Well, that explains it because just recently, in Deepika's interview with celebrity film-critic Anupama Chopra, she expressed the dearth of good scripts in Hindi cinema. And no major production house is willing to offer Deepika the kind og money she is asking for!
