Bollywood is a big industry and male-female gender inequality is something that is not limited to the film industry. This is just pervasive.
However, with the evolving trends of modern Hindi cinema, where centric female Bollywood films do as well as male-centric ones, with each passing year, the income gap is getting smaller. Let’s speak about Bollywood actresses who are the highest paid in Industry.
1. Deepika Padukone
The number one spot in our list goes undeniably to Deepika Padukone, who has proved in recent years that there is really no competition for her when it comes to attractiveness, talent, hard work, or sense of script.
She is currently paying INR 15 crore per movie, and the rate has to go up with a few more good movies that we really want to happen.
2. Priyanka Chopra
Although until a few years ago she was our very own Desi Girl, she became a Hollywood sensation with movies like Baywatch and shows like ‘Quantico.’
Though her appearances in Indian cinema have decreased significantly in recent years, she continues to do quality work abroad which keeps hiking her fee. She is reportedly paying 14 crores per movie in both Hollywood and India so this places her in the second position on our list of best Highest Paid Actress in Bollywood.
3. Kangana Ranaut
Bollywood’s undebatable queen, Kangana Ranaut has been out there making every movie a great name for herself. After beginning a bit slow with movies like ‘Life in a Metro’ and ‘Gangster,’ she has turned out to become one of the best actresses we have at the moment in recent years.
All this began with Queen and then there are films after films that helped her build a niche in the industry for herself. She clearly deserves 13 crores for that, that she gets for every movie.
4. Katrina Kaif
Katrina Kaif may not be regarded as the industry’s best actress out there, but she hasn’t in any way hurt her when it comes to winning awards.
She keeps picking the right scripts even though her job does not allow her to do a lot with it and when the movie finally would be a success, she’s reaping benefits. The very smart, clever, and professional way to go about a competitive business career, as we would say the Hindi film industry. She is charging 11 crores for each film.
5. Anushka Sharma
Anushka Sharma is one of the entire industry’s smartest ladies who creates the most perfect balance between class and market. With popular commercial films such as Sultan, PK, and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and art movies like Pari, NH 10 and Phillauri proved to be a highly competent actress in her own way. She might easily top the list with even more exciting projects lined up in her path. But for now, she is in the 5th position on our list with 10 crore fees per movie.
6. Alia Bhatt
Alia Bhatt is one of the very few star kids in the industry who have proved over and over again that she happens to be the most talented of all this generation of star-kid girls. After a bad film like ‘Student of the Year’ begins slowly,
She had developed herself and starred again and again in back to back hits. And these films were not only box office successes, but they also gave her recognition for her performances. Highlighting Raazi’s recent success, A Bollywood Spy Thriller Movie, Alia charges about 9-10 crore for each movie.
7. Sonam Kapoor
Besides attracting constant critiques due to her ‘motor-mouth’ and her acting skills, Sonam is our industry’s popular style diva.
Yet that doesn’t mean she should be paid more in her role than any other star. But some recent critical and commercial success hits like Neerja, had made the tides a little better for her and made her charge about 8 crores per movie. We’ve shared the list of top paid Bollywood Actresses and their fees for a movie, that’s not an exact figure, often actors charge more or less as per the movie’s script and total budget, you can see that this is an average stat of Highest Paid Actresses in Bollywood and their fees.
