Bollywood’s Queen actress Kangana Ranaut is reportedly the highest paid female actress in Bollywood. The beauty who has had back back hits in recent years has become a formidable name in the industry. She is giving stiff competition to actresses like Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif. Her films like ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’, ‘Queen’, ‘Revolver Rani’, and many others gained her an enviable status in Bollywood.
Kanagana Ranaut has reportedly received a cheque of Rs. 11 crores for her next project. This makes the actress the highest paid in Bollywood, leaving behind the remuneration paid to Deepika Padukone, which makes her remuneration higher than that of Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.
This signing amount is the highest any Bollywood actress has received so far. Deepika takes about Rs. 8-9 crores for a film; while Priyanka takes Rs. 7-8 crores. Perhaps, the film selection, particularly choosing women-centric films has helped Kangana prove her skills over and over again.
Priyanka Chopra once spoke about the disparity in remuneration of male and female actors in the industry. She said, “I think we will be able to command a remuneration that we deserve… It will be a slow and steady thing but it will happen”. Perhaps, what Priyanka said is happening and Kangana Ranaut has taken over.
