There has been a while since we have heard about Deepika Padukone‘s next film. The actress was to earlier start work on Vishal Bhardwaj’s next alongside Irrfan Khan but the film was put on hold due to the both the actor’s health issues at that point. But besides that, Deepika is yet to sign another film. While a few suggest that the actress isn’t taking up new films due to her chronic shoulder and neck pain, another story that is doing the rounds is that she is taking time to prepare for her wedding with Ranveer Singh. But is this why Ms Padukone hasn’t signed a single film after Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmaavat?

Well, a source while talking to Deccan Chronicle said, “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 because of the quality of roles coming her way. They are all big-banner films with top heroes. But nothing even remotely as author-backed or inspiring as Padmaavat. At this stage in her career, Deepika is no more content playing the conventional leading lady. It has to be a script that offers her as much to do as the male protagonist” Also Read - Spotted! Deepika Padukone, Ananya Panday, Malaika Arora, Alia Bhatt Papped in Mumbai- Video

Apart from this, there is another factor which is stopping Deepika from signing the dotted lines. The source also added that Deepika is asking for a pay cheque which not many production houses are ready to offer heroines. The actress a little before Padmaavat had released had revealed about getting paid more than her co-stars in the film.
