But, recently in an interview given to BollywoodLife. Big B said that he was paid lesser than Deepika Padukone for Piku. Here’s what he had to say ,
“I dunno if this is relevant or not. Whether coz of circumstances this has happened but I can tell you one thing, in Piku, Deepika Padukone was paid more than me and that says two things – one that she is obviously more important than me and two I have lost my price tag coz I have been working for so long. Maybe I am not so important.”

Shoorjit the man behind Piku, also cleared and share his thoughts ,

“But I think what’s the harm? If the woman’s character is that then it’s okay. For example, everybody asked me if it’s( Piku) is a woman centric film. I said why? Coz a woman has a stronger character that’s why it’s a woman centric film. But there are many films with only heroes but that is not man centric film. So don’t see a film like coz there’s a woman’s pic on the poster it’s a woman centric film. It’s a cinema, a film a story. She maybe is the hero of the film and that’s how you should see it.”
