According to a Mid-Day report, a source was quoted confirming that the two actress top the search of Bollywood’s most favourite actors in Madrid, and hence the high demand.

The organisers were in talks with many celebrities to perform on stage. They even conducted a research to find out which Bollywood celebrities are popular in Madrid and results showed Deepika and Priyanka top the actresses’ list and therefore, were ready to shell out a hefty amount to have them in their performance line-up. Normally, Bollywood girls are paid Rs 70-80 lakh for a stage act, depending on their popularity and market value.
