In a new interview, Deepika Padukone was asked what it’s like to be dubbed “Bollywood’s number one power couple” alongside Ranveer Singh. During an interview with The Week, Deepika discussed her costs and explained why she and Ranveer charge a ‘premium’ when working on a project together. She also stated that, unlike other celebrity couples, they have an equal balance of authority.
When asked if she ‘commands a separate rate for ads or films’, when working with Ranveer Singh, as compared to what they charge working individually, Deepika told the magazine, “Yes, we do charge a premium for 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.”
According to a Duff & Phelps (a risk and financial advice firm now known as Kroll) yearly report, both Deepika and Ranveer have continuously ranked in the Top 10 of India’s most valuable celebrities.
According to the magazine, Deepika demands 12-15 crore every film, despite the fact that few female actresses have earned more than 10 crores. It went on to say that Deepika, who has been a brand ambassador for Indian companies like Tanishq, Asian Paints, and Axis Bank, as well as foreign designer labels like Louis Vuitton and Cartier, is India’s highest-paid female performer, excluding Priyanka Chopra, who relocated to Hollywood.
Deepika and Ranveer Singh tied the knot in Italy in 2018. They dated for six years before getting married. Apart from advertisements for Jio Mart and Lloyd AC, the actors have appeared in films together, including 2013’s ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’, which is regarded as one of Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s greatest.
Following ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’, Ranveer and Deepika appeared in Sanjay’s 2015 film ‘Bajirao Mastani’, co-starring Priyanka Chopra, and in ‘Padmaavat’ (2018), co-starring Shahid Kapoor.
