Whether because of circumstances this has happened but I can tell you one thing, in Piku, Deepika Padukone was paid more than me and that says two things one that she is obviously more important than me and two I have lost my price tag because I have been working for so long. Maybe I am not so important.”
Director Shoojit Sircar, who also confirmed that he was paid more than Amitabh Bachchan. Shoojit Sircar is the producer of Amitabh Bachchan’s Pink and also the producer of Piku. He said, “But I think what’s the harm? If the woman’s character is that then it’s okay. For example, everybody asked me if it’s (Piku) is a woman-centric film. I said why? because a woman has a stronger character that’s why it’s a woman-centric film. But there are many films with only heroes but that is not a man-centric film. So don’t see a film like because there’s a woman’s pic on the poster it’s a woman-centric film. It’s a cinema, a film a story. She maybe is the hero of the film and that’s how you should see it.”
