Not a penny more, not a penny less,” said the source in the report.
As per the report, Sanjay Leela Bhansali “regretfully turned down her request for pay parity.” The report mentioned that a source close to Bhansali Productions said it works out for the better, in a way. The source said, “In a way, it works out for the better. Four Ranveer- Deepika films in a row from Sanjay Leela Bhansali would have been excessive, don’t you think?”
