Deepika Padukone is currently the Queen of Bollywood and deserves everything to hold this title. But in the last couple of months, she hasn’t signed a single new movie. Even her gangster film with Vishal Bhardwaj has been put on a back burner due to her co-star Irrfan Khan‘s ill health.

Many speculate that it’s her injury that’s not letting her sign further movies, while few insiders say that her impending marriage with Ranveer Singh is the roadblock. Do you want to know why the ‘Padmaavat’ actress is not signing any film? Well, we have got the answer. (Also Read: Cannes 2018: Deepika Padukone sets the red carpet on fire!)

None of the above theories are true, and if a report in Deccan Chronicle is anything to go by. “Her back/neck problem is being properly attended to, and she will be fine soon. As for marriage plans, they in no way impinge on her career. The reason Deepika is not signing anything new is that of the quality of roles coming her way,” a source close to the actress told the publication.

Apart from this, it is reported that her hefty demand is also one of the primary reasons that she is not signing new projects. “She has gone on record to claim she was paid more than the leading man in ‘Padmaavat’. Big banners like Yash Raj Films and Karan Johar‘s Dharma Productions are not willing to pay her that kind of money,” added the source.

She has proved her acting prowess, and we feel its fair on her if she demands a hike.
