Bollywood is a huge industry and every Friday, we have at least one movie trying its luck on the box office. The leading ladies in Indian cinema like Kareena Kapoor Khan and Deepika Padukone are nowadays are getting a huge momentum for their work and are also being paid well. According to a recent report, Kangana Ranaut is the highest paid actress in Bollywood. For her movie Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi she has been paid more than what Deepika, Priyanka or even Kareena would have normally got for a film.
This should come as no surprise that Kangana is now the highest paid Bollywood actress. She has received 14 crores for her movie Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, which is set to release on 25th January 2019. Kangana made her Bollywood debut with the movie Gangster and her movies like Fashion, Tanu Weds Manu, Queen and Tanu Weds Manu Returns did exceptionally well at the box office and that too without any crowd-pulling male actor in the lead role. In the year 2019 she will be seen as the warrior queen in Manikarnika. Apart from this, Kangana will also be seen in Mental Hai Kya, Panga and Imli in the coming year.
Deepika has delivered hits like, Padmaavat, Bajirao Mastani, Piku and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani in the past. According to reports, Deepika takes home 11 crores per film. Apart from Bollywood movies, the Padmaavat actress has even worked in Hollywood movies. Currently, she does not have any big ticket movie in her kitty but she will be seen doing a cameo in the movie Zero.
There was a time when the ‘desi-girl’ was being paid more than Kangana but the equation has changed now. Priyanka will be getting Rs 12 crore for the movie The Sky is Pink. Priyanka made her debut with the movie The Hero and made her mark with films like Andaaz, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Barfi, Fashion, Bajirao Mastani and Mary Kom.
