Deepika Padukone Has Officially Become One Of The World’s Highest Paid Actress

Updated on 25 August, 2016 at 6:06 pm By

Deepika Padukone has made her amazing debut in Forbes 2016’s list of 10 highest-paid actresses in the world to join bigwigs like Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts.

Deepika is not just the only Indian actress to feature in the magazine but also happens to be the only newcomer for the list this year.



Humbly putting her at the 10th spot, Forbes mentions Padukone to have “scored box office gold” in Bollywood movies such as Bajirao Mastani (2015) and Piku (2015). However, in the same breath ,the magazine also mentioned that her major earnings come from endorsements rather Bollywood projects.

While Padukone earns far less than her Hollywood counterparts for roles, she compensates with over a dozen lucrative endorsements…these have helped her hedge against a deep pay gap in Bollywood.

Though a top male star might earn close to $5 million a movie, prominent Indian actresses rarely clear $1 million a film. To wit, four Bollywood actors will appear on the Highest-Paid Actors ranking, scheduled to publish Thursday, compared to just one on the Highest-Paid Actresses list.

This mocks the wage gap in the Bollywood industry right there. However, it also mentioned how this discrepancy is not uncommon in Hollywood either.

But with Padukone taking it for the start, we can’t be any less proud of seeing a Bollywood actress making headlines in a business magazine for a change.
