Mumbai:  Bollywood star Deepika Padukone placed a bet on the song Daaru Desi  in the film Cocktail, saying the song won't work.


 
She placed the bet with Cocktail producer Dinesh Vijan, says a media report.
 
Dinu was very sure of the song's potential and asked her to wager a million rupees.
 
When the song became a hit, Dinesh started following up with Deepika for the money.
 
Deepika first argued with him about the relative popularity of the song, but when the song entered the charts, she couldn't argue much.
 
Deepika then banked on the fact that her producer friend would not actually press for the money.   But contrary to her expectations,  Dinesh kept following up for the money.
 
After  a period of dilly-dallying, Deepika paid him 10 lakh from her pocket four days ago says the report.
 
Deepika, says the report, is still in a state of shock because she was made to pay this sum seriously for a bet that she so casually made, though she earned quite a lot from the film.
