Sanjay Leela Bhansali's epic drama "Padmaavat" released in India on Thursday amidst much hullabaloo.

The gender pay gap in Bollywood is something that has been discussed for quite some time. A-list female actors like Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Vidya Balan, Kangana Ranaut and others have time and again expressed their displeasure over the wage disparity. However, if a recent interview of Deepika Padukone is anything to go by, it looks like things are changing a little bit for the better.

During her appearance on BFFs with Vogue, Deepika was asked if she was paid more than co-stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in the controversial film Padmaavat.

The actor, who attended the show along with her sister Anisha Padukone, simply said "yes", without disclosing the amount.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's epic drama Padmaavat released in India on Thursday amidst much hullabaloo. The film is based on the 16th century Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's epic poem "Padmavat" and glorifies the Rajput ethos of honour, bravery and sacrifice.

Deepika plays the central character of Rani Padmavati in the movie, for which she has received a lot of appreciation.
