A whopping Rs 12 crore for Padmaavat, much more than her male co-actors, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, Deepika is currently said to be the highest paid actress of Bollywood.
Now per latest reports, Priyanka too is getting paid the same amount for Salman Khan’s Bharat.
Per a source, PC’s team initially demanded Rupees 14 crore as her remuneration fee but considering the current industry standards, they then mutually closed the deal at Rupees 12 crore
So, not just Deepika, both Priyanka and Deepika occupy the seat of highest paid actresses of Bollywood.
Priyanka will be returning to the Hindi movies after 2 years with Bharat. The actress spoke to Esquire saying, “I’ve finished up two films: A Kid Like Jake, which comes out in June. And Isn’t it Romantic? which comes out Valentine’s Day 2019. I play a spoiled rich woman who is a yoga guru, which is not a thing. [Bharat] is the Indian movie I signed this year. It’s the quintessential Bollywood movie, which I haven’t done in many years. A lot of them were dramatic and thematic. This one’s going to be out and out entertainment. I’m excited! I haven’t been back to do a movie in two or three years now.”
