11 Bollywood Actresses’ Pay Packages Revealed, But It’s The Men Who Are Raking In The Moolah!

How much Bollywood actresses get paid has remained a mystery ever since Kangana Ranaut came out strongly against the disparity in the paychecks compared to their male counterparts in the industry. While the debate did push their salaries up by some crores, the difference still remains quite apparent. Kangana recently became the highest paid actress in Bollywood when she signed a movie for Rs 11 crores. Her revised remuneration was well justified in her post Queen phase. She won a National Award for the same.

But have you thought about the figure Salman Khan, the highest paid actor in Bollywood, commands? It’s more than five times – Rs 60 crores!

wp2

According to IANS, superstars Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar were a part of Forbes first global list of actors. The trio ranked among the world’s top ten highest-paid actors, which included Hollywood to Hong Kong and Bollywood. While the fee of Indian actors keeps on increasing with each film, indicating that there is no recession in our industry, it has remained static for the actresses until recently.

With a surge in female-centric films and their successful outing at the box office, our female leads have begun questioning the long-standing disparity and sought equality. Apart from Kangana, Vidya Balan and Katrina Kaif have also been vocal about it.

“Remuneration has changed but if you compare it with what the men get it is still very different. But I would say let’s not compare it because just five per cent of these films are being made. I think we will get our due. We are slowly moving towards that.” – Vidya Balan

wp2

“Indian cinema has come a long way. But one thing which has not changed is the remuneration for women. There is still a huge disparity. Let’s see what happens with that.” – Katrina Kaif

While Salman had recently called this debate “bullshit”, we would like to remind you that Madhuri Dixit has been the only actress till date, who was paid more than her male counterparts, both Salman and Shah Rukh Khan when she ruled the screens in the 1990s.

Keeping in view the current statistics, here is a list of the highest paid Bollywood actress and their remuneration. Read on.

  1. Kangana Ranaut – 11 crores

wp

The powerhouse performer hiked her fees after Queen and Tanu Weds Manu Returns. Reportedly she is getting Rs 11 crores for her next movie, which makes her the highest paid Bollywood actress. She prefers doing movies centered around her character and has four big upcoming projects including Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon, Hansal Mehta’s Simran and Ketan Mehta’s Rani Laxmi Bai.

  1. Kareena Kapoor – 9 crores

wp2

Kareena is in her own comfortable space and has become quite choosy about signing films. While she wrapped R. Balki’s upcoming Ki And Ka, she is also shooting for Udta Punjab… and all for 9 crores. She is the senior most actress in our list and currently at the second spot.

  1. Deepika Padukone – 9 crores

wp

Deepika has her hands full with big ticket films. And with back to back hits, even filmmakers are ready to pay her 9 crores. One of the most talented among the younger lot, she is ready to bargain for small budget films, if she likes the script. Deeps will close 2015 with Tamasha and Bajirao Mastani.

  1. Priyanka Chopra – 9 crores

wp

Priyanka has been hopping between U.S. and Mumbai, to maintain equilibrium between her American show and Bollywood films. And she has been doing it with quite a finesse. She is paid 9 crores, which is quite low compared to the actresses in Hollywood, where PC has her eyes fixed.

  1. Vidya Balan – 7 crores

wp2

She is usually the first choice of producers making female-centric movies. However, all she gets is 6 to 7 crores per film. We personally feel she deserves more, considering her filmography includes The Dirty Picture, Kahaani and Ishqiya.

  1. Katrina Kaif – 7 crores

wp.jpg

Kat has set her fees at an average range, making her an affordable actress for filmmakers. No wonder she ends up grabbing more projects that her counterparts. While she might still be struggling with her Hindi, her pretty face and glam quotient covers up for the loopholes.

  1. Anushka Sharma – 6 crores

wp2

Anushka is the dark horse in this list. She has slowly established herself as a bankable actress and one of the highest paid ones. If she continues to do films likeNH10, her remuneration will only grow. One advice to the versatile actress – stay away from films like Bombay Velvet please!

  1. Sonakshi Sinha – 6 crores

wp

She has a big fan base not just among the masses but inside the industry too. The outspoken and talented actress, whose calendar remains blocked with 3-4 movies every year, demands 5 to 6 crores each film. Her co-actors love her. No wonder she keeps appearing in item songs with them too!

  1. Shraddha Kapoor – 5 crores

wp2

Shraddha is fast gaining a stronghold in the industry. After a love story (Aashiqui 2), a thriller (Ek Villain), a drama (Haider) and a dance film (ABCD 2) she has showed her talent, enough to be able to demand between 4-5 crores. Her next film Rock On!! 2 is a musical. Such variety!

  1. Alia Bhatt – 3 crores

wp

With a 100 percent success rate at the box office (leaving aside Shaandaar), Alia has proved her mettle early in her career. She might be a girl-next-door off-camera but turns into a strong performer onscreen. Just in the third year of her career and she comfortably gets 3 crores for every film.

  1. Parineeti Chopra – 3 crores

wp2

She has been missing from the screens for a while now. But whenever she makes an appearance, filmmakers are happy to sign Parineeti for 3 crores. For someone who never wished to take up acting, she is slowly emerging as a natural actress, much like her elder sister Priyanka.

wp

However, the men get more than three times on an average. Both Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan received 50 crores for their upcoming films Dangal and Mohenjo Daro respectively. While Akshay Kumar gets 45 crores, filmmakers sign SRK for 40 crores. That’s not all. Even John Abraham (15 crores) and Arjun Rampal (14 crores) get more than the highest paid actress.

Do you remember their last hit film? Well, we don’t!

Bigg-Boss-9-Logo-First-Look

With Kishwer being the next captain of the house, we witnessed her dominating the members of the house and sending out a regulation of only the members who are assigned the Kitchen Team will take command as to what has to be made in the house.

Now, when Aman and Keith were discussing how Suyyash-Prince-Kishwer have begun ganging up and started the groupism trend, Digangana had her two cents to add saying that she did not like it when Kishwer told her that she cannot go and pick up anything she likes from the kitchen, Diggy added that everyone in the house does that.

Not only that, she added that nothing except for the eggs have been rationed and they cannot blindly point a finger at her just because they feel like it.

Diggy seems pissed!

Mona as Preet

After spending 9 hours on a set with co-actors and constantly addressing them with their reel names, it is almost instinctive to refer them with their on-screen names in real life too. The recent one to suffer from this is Mona Singh aka Preet Hooda of Sony Entertainment Television’s upcoming show, Pyaar Ko Ho Jaane Do.

A source close to the channel said, “A couple of days back the shoot got delayed due to some unforeseen reason. Instead of packing-up by 9 pm, Mona had to stay back a little longer than that. She wanted to keep her father updated about the delay and decided to message him. After sending the text she realised that the message was sent to Micky Makhija, aka Mr. Hooda who plays her father-in-law on the show instead of her real father. What followed this was non-stop laughter and lots of teasing.”

It’s ok Mona! There is nothing to be embarrassed about! We are sure Micky Makhija would have loved to read a text message from you.
