Bollywood actresses like Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif are on the list of most sought-after actresses in the industry. And the two divas know that well. Padukone and Kaif have hiked their fees big time and small producers are feeling the heat.

It has been reported that a producer wanted to cast Padukone or Kaif for his upcoming film, but the duo’s fees made him change his mind.

“I wanted Deepika Padukone or Katrina Kaif for the female lead.

“I quickly scampered away when I heard the price they quoted, and signed a less pricey A-lister.”

The producer has reportedly signed Alia Bhatt or Shraddha Kapoor, two popular actresses who have kept their fees fairly low. – Oneindia.
