Reportedly, Deepika did give a nod to the director but was demanding a whopping Rs. 1 crore per day for the film. But that’s not all! DP wasn’t the only one approached for the film. We hear that Priyanka Chopra too was considered to play Vijay’s leading lady. To those who don’t know, PeeCee made her film debut opposite Vijay in Thamizhan. So apparently, Priyanka liked the storyline and didn’t make a demand as high as Deepika’s.

It’s Rs 1 crore per day for a 30 days call sheet! That means she quoted Rs 30 crore as her remuneration for the movie and that’s almost double the pay package Vijay or other South Stars charge.
