There was a time in our film industry when no matter what role or how much role, the important aspect had always been the male actor, from the fees to the name of the film to the important and lovable character of any movie. But now things have completely changed. With actress like Deepika Padukone and Vidya Balan, director does not have to do a lot with male choices. In fact with such actress at times the actor does not even matter or are not even remembered.
And not with just roles the actress of our film industry are becoming the biggest stakeholders as well. Recently Deepika Padukone has been offered 7 crore by director Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his film. Priyanka Chopra fees for movie starts from 4 crores and then Vidya Balan, Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif all takes the lead from there. Even the new starrers Alia Bhatt and Shradha Kapoor fees starts from 1.5 crores. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
