Actress Deepika Padukone is currently awaiting the release of her upcoming film 'Padmavati' in which she plays the lead role alongside actors Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. The film has been directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and is one of the highly awaited films of this year. The actress was rumored to be paid more than her male co-stars in this project and this issue hasn't been addressed by any of the cast members until now. The film's cast and crew attended the trailer launch in 3D and also interacted with the media. One of the journalists present at the event asked Deepika about her the rumors surrounding her remuneration in the film to which the actress replied by saying, "Talking about my remuneration, for me, is not exciting. I am confident and comfortable with what I am paid...as I am sure you are with what you are being paid."

Deepika then praised the film's producers Viacom 18 Motion Pictures for backing a big budgeted project like 'Padmavati' which has Deepika Padukone in the lead role. The actress then said that Padmavati is different from what she has done before as nothing was as exciting. She hopes that this film will be able to pave the path for women-centric films in the future. It was recently announced that the film will release in 3D and technicians from abroad will be brought in to work on the process to complete it in time. The film is scheduled to release on December 1 in cinemas.
