Producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who had already signed Sonakshi Sinha and apparently also paid her the signing amount as the female lead opposite Salman Khan, is reportedly not happy with the actress’ fee hike. As a daily reports, Sajid has refused giving any raise to Sonakshi, and is thinking of a replacement.
Deepika Padukone is now the choice of the makers as her pairing with Salman Khan will look fresh on screen. The insiders even claim that paying more to the female lead wasn’t the issue with the producer as Deepika’s fee per film is anyway more than what Sonakshi charges.
Sajid Nadiadwala reportedly felt that if he had to fork out more to a heroine, then he might just as well get a bigger actress, and who else than Deepika fits the bill better? Time and again, Deepika, too, has expressed her wish to work with Salman, and was waiting for a right project.
Sonakshi Sinha raised her price recently after the big success of her movie Dabangg 2.
