Kangana Ranaut is indeed the Queen of Bollywood; she has proved it yet again. TheFashion star is reportedly the highest paid female actress in Bollywood. Recently, theTanu Weds Manu Returns actress has received a cheque of INR 11 crores for her next project, 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.
