When the dynamic Bollywood couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh join forces for a project, it’s not just star power that comes together but also a premium price tag. In a recent interview with The Week, Deepika Padukone shed light on the rationale behind their higher fees when they collaborate on a film or venture.
The actress explained that the unique aspect of their partnership is the balanced power dynamic they share, unlike many other celebrity couples in the industry. She stated, “Yes, we do charge a premium when we come together. I think we are positioned quite uniquely. In that, there’s usually an imbalance in a power couple, but not with us. Plus, both of us have started from scratch, and it’s something we are very proud of. To achieve success on merit and on one’s own terms makes us special.”
Indeed, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s journey to stardom began without any industry connections, and their individual accomplishments have solidified their status as top actors in the Indian film industry.
According to reports in the magazine, the couple has consistently ranked in the Top 10 of India’s most valued celebrities. Deepika Padukone reportedly charges between Rs 12 to 15 crore per film. In addition to their film careers, Deepika is the face of renowned Indian brands such as Tanishq, Asian Paints, and Axis Bank, and she has also represented international designer labels like Louis Vuitton and Cartier. This further establishes her as India’s highest-paid female actor, excluding Priyanka Chopra, who has ventured into Hollywood.
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, who tied the knot in 2018 in a lavish ceremony in Italy after dating for six years, have also been seen together in commercials for brands like Jio Mart and Lloyd AC. Their on-screen chemistry has been widely praised, and films like 2013’s “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela” are considered among their best works.
