If you think that Tinsel town is the only film industry creating millionaires, then you’re wrong. Indian films gross far less than their American-made counterparts, but they are typically produced for much cheaper costs by selling satellite rights to TV channels. In spite of declining price tags for those rights, Indian actors are still cashing in from movies fees and advertisements. Let’s meet some highest-paid stars in Bollywood.
King of romance leads the lot, banking huge from starring roles in movies such as Raees, for which he earns upfront amount and a cut of the back-end. He also pockets billions from productive advertisements deals and profitable productions helmed by his production house Red Chillies Entertainment. His net worth amount is 38$ million yearly.
Sallu Bhai stands at the second position on the list, who still earns top rupee for flicks such as Sultan, which was the second – highest earning Bollywood movie of 2016. Tubelight, which was released outside our scoring period, did not fare as well. He absorbs a heap of advertisements and a not-for-profit line of jewellery and clothing. His net worth amount is 37$ million yearly.
Khiladi Kumar’s paycheck is thanks to a hectic schedule that saw him appear in five movies in our scoring period- more than many of his fellow list members. Besides the number of hits like Jolly LLB 2, Akshay Kumar also pulls in seven figures hunting items from deodorant to Eveready batteries. His net worth amount is 35.5$ million yearly.
Deepika Padukone’s upfront amount is on the rise for her lead role in the forthcoming ‘Padmavati’, FORBES estimates. But the 31-year-old Piku actress still makes most of her money from advertisements, endorsements for more than a number of brands from global giant Nike to local cell phone maker Oppo. Her net worth amount is $11 million yearly.
The Quantico star, PeeCee makes the cut thanks to the earnings from ABC’s Quantico as well as movie roles in Hollywood and Bollywood. Priyanka Chopra grossed $177.4 million worldwide this year.
The Shahanshah of Bollywood has aged into more complex roles, portraying a lawyer defending women’s rights in 2016’s Pink. He has earned $9 million in the year 2017 respectively.
