Priyanka Chopra is now the Indian-global actress who proved herself as the true boss as she will be the first female actress of Bollywood who will share the film’s profit. Peecee is undoubtedly at the top game of her life and back in India to start the shoot of Shonali Bose’s next and Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat opposite Salman Khan.
According to a report in the leading daily, “Chopra is likely to get a share of the profits that The Sky Is Pink will make. With this information being correct, she will become the first female actor in Bollywood to take profit sharing that is followed by superstars like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar.”
A source said, “Shonali Bose’s film banks on Priyanka and Zaira Wasim, who plays her daughter in the movie. Priyanka understood that if she needed to make this venture feasible, she couldn’t command her regular fee. In such a scenario, she thought it would be better to take a share of the film’s spoils after it has done well. This is the first time a Bollywood actress will be doing this. So far, we have usually seen male actors demand a cut of the profits since they pump in the money as well.”
Sonali’s next is being produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur and Ronnie Screwvala, also starring Farhan Akhtar. As per the source further informed, “The topic has so far been broached with one of the producers. The profit cut is yet to be finalised. Before the film is officially announced, the respective parties are expected to come to a consensus on the same, following which she will sign on the dotted line.”
