Baiju Bawra: Deepika Padukone And Ranbir Kapoor Deny Being A Part Of Sanjay Leela Bhansali Directorial For THIS Reason
Ranbir Kapoor And Deepika Padukone rejected Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Baiju Bawra
Spearheaded by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film Baiju Bawra has been the talk of the town since its inception. B-town’s lead performers like Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone have backed out from the project which would have been one of the best films yet to ever exist. The initial cast of the film included Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, and Alia Bhatt but, now the Bachna Ae Haseeno co-stars are deciding to not work on the project.
According to reports from a leading publication, Ranbir Kapoor was offered the film; however, the actor did not have a pleasant experience of working with Bhansali during his film Saawariya. The actor had decided that he will never collaborate with Sanjay Leela Bhansali ever again for any film. Besides this, the actor had also spread the news around his company that Baiju Bawra was otherwise a boring script and audiences wouldn’t love the film. Thus, it was easy for Ranbir Kapoor to back out from the film.
Ranveer Singh was on board for the project after Ranbir Kapoor denied the film Baiju Bawra. Also, we are aware of the unequal pay that exists in the B-town between female and male co-stars. Even Deepika Padukone decided to quit the project as Sanjay Leela Bhansali rejected to keep her pay equal to Ranveer Singh’s. Ranveer has hiked his fees after he received considerable and consistent projects like 83, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and many others. While, Deepika Padukone on the other hand, is the highest-paid female actress. Also, the actress’s busy schedule keeps her at work and thus, removing dates for other projects can be difficult.
It was confirmed that Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt will be a part of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Baiju Bawra, and it is eagerly awaited by fans.
