Bollywood industry is fast growing and turning to become the world’s largest entertainment industry even beating out Hollywood which is ruling the scene currently. Hollywood now has to eye on Bollywood to make the collaborations on the projects and we have been witnessing it quite often. Previously it was Bollywood stars and the filmmakers who had to ask their counterparts for making associations in ventures together. But now the table has turned altogether after the mammoth popularity and the presence of Hindi films and its stars in the entire world. Today, Hollywood industry and its stars show off their interest in working with Bollywood – quite recent example being Lady Gaga and Tom Cruise who landed in India and there flaunted their desire to sail through the Bollywood waves.
Bollywood is dragging the entire globe off its feet and everyone is bound to be dragged to the magical cinematic works of the industry. Even the television fraternity of Hindustan has captured the world in its magic. The viewers are mesmerized by the TV soaps and the telly stars of Indian TV.
This colossal popularity of Bollywood has made the stars as popular on the planet earth as their Hollywood counterparts are! Thus today they draw the pay checks for their works equal to the Hollywood celebs’ fees for their respective ventures.
Where the mega male stars of the Hindi film industry charge much higher for their assignments, the Bollywood babes are not behind them since they too pocket the hefty amount for the ventures they get associated with.
As per the latest reports, Kareena Kapoor is called the Bollywood’s highest paid actress with many blockbusters to her credit. Her recent films all turned out to be super successful at the box office making her the top notch well-in-demands Bollywood heroine of today’s time. She earns around 8 crores from her film ventures and brand endorsements. She bags Rs. 5 crores as a film fee and Rs. 3 crores from the advertisements. Kareena has been dating Saif Ali Khan for last few years and they are going to tie the knot by the beginning of next year.
Sheila Ki Jawani babe, who is now riding high with her upcoming item number ‘Chikni Chameli’ in Agneepath, Katrina Kaif gets second position on the Top 10 highest paid Bollywood actresses’ list. Katrina’s love affairs too put her into limelight.
This milky sexy beauty too is considered to be the hit formula, which is why she is the apple of every filmmaker’s eyes. Kaif earns Rs. 8 crores from films and ads like Kareena but since Kareena’s star power is higher than Katrina, she is placed at number one position. Katrina Kaif bags Rs. 4 crores for a film fee and Rs. 4 crores, she earns from the brand endorsements.
The Bachchans’ Bahu Rani, Aishwarya Rai, the former Miss World and internationally famed actress Aishwarya Rai earns Rs. 4 crores from the brand endorsements and the major part of the amount surely comes from L’Oreal products since she is the brand ambassador of the coveted cosmetic brand. Aishwarya’s film fee varies but the approximate figure is Rs. 4 crores for a film’s project, she charges.
Thus she can be placed among Kareena and Katrina with total earning Rs. 8 crores (approx) but as she has been away from the movies and does not have any release or recent hit to her name she drops at the 4th position. Aishwarya has delivered a baby girl of late and is busy with the newborn these days.
