Mumbai: Kangana Ranaut chose to remain tight-lipped on reports that her contemporary Deepika Padukone is now the highest-paid actress in Bollywood.
Three-time National Award-winner Kangana had earlier claimed that she was the highest-paid actress, getting remuneration of Rs 11 crore for each project.
Recent reports, however, have suggested that Deepika has outshone Kangana in terms of pay, by signing Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmavati” for Rs 12 crore.
When last night, Kangana was quizzed about these reports, she just gave a stern look and parried the question.
The 29-year-old star Metwith the poser by the reporters at the Mumbaiairport as she returned from the US, where she had gone for preparation of Hansal Mehta’s next “Simran”
Kangana plays the role of a Gujarati NRI, named Praful Patel.
“Preparations for ‘Simran’ is going good. I enjoyed the workshop session that we did in the US,” Kangana said when asked about the film.
“‘Simran’ is a story of a girl, her ambitions and how she gets addicted to the world of crime. It reportedly inspired by real life events of an NRI nurse in living the US, Sandeep Kaur.
Kaur was imprisoned last year for robbing banks to pay off her gambling debts.
According to sources, the shooting of the film will begin from September end.
