Gone are the days when there used to be sad stories of female actors in Indian cinema not getting paid as much as male actors. Today, the situation have changed, now the criteria depends on each actor's own personal credibility. If your personal credibility is extremely strong, then as an actress you get paid well, even more than your male counterparts i.e. the heroes. As a female artist, building your own strong base in an industry that is predominantly dominated by male superiority and power is no easy task. Very few actresses in the country actually have the star power with the personal credibility and capability to carry a film on their shoulders and make the work a success. So today, we will tell you about the earning patterns of the four highest paid actresses of Indian cinema as of today. Those actresses range from Dipika Padukone, Urvashi Rautela to Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt. So meet India's highest-grossing actresses who are ruling every heart.

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone stands as an example in Bollywood as a symbol of women power, who has broken the gender divide in Indian cinema and has set new standards in Bollywood, where for almost a hundred years, every Men's supremacy was established in matters, right from respect to wages. Considered to be one of the highest paid actresses in the film industry, Deepika is not only paid equal to what many of her male counterparts earn but also surpasses them, becoming an example of gender equality in Indian cinema. It is an important milestone. Deepika is a symbol of strength in every aspect, advocating for mental health awareness and gender equality and inspiring her millions of fans. Her journey to becoming one of the highest paid stars in Bollywood is a testament to her hard work, dedication and the changing times in the Indian film industry, where talent outweighs gender. Deepika's achievement of surpassing the earnings of Bollywood's male superstars is not only her personal victory but also a collective victory for women in the industry. This signals, a shift towards more equitable recognition, in today's environment.

Urvashi Rautela

She is the youngest superstar of the Indian film industry and also the youngest celebrity to be included in the Forbes top 10. With over 70.3 million followers on Instagram, she has a huge fan following globally and no wonder, she is a global icon. According to sources, Urvashi commands a whopping Rs 35-50 crore per film, which is more than anyone else in the business and by a fair margin. No wonder, she has a huge empire and her net worth is Rs 550 crore. Whatever she has earned today is the result of her hard work and efforts without any industry godfather and hence, she deserves every bit of it.

Priyanka Chopra

Desi girl Priyanka Chopra is such a person, who started from zero and made her mark in India as well as abroad. However, as far as acting remuneration fees are concerned, it is said, she is a little behind Urvashi as she charges between Rs 14-40 crores per film. However, it is still a lucrative and huge amount of money for an actress of her caliber and it is no wonder her fans love her.

Alia Bhatt Kapoor

Last but not the least, we have to talk about Alia Bhatt in this matter. The 'Gangubai' actress is ranked third in the list of highest paid actresses as she is said to be a little behind Urvashi Rautela and Priyanka Chopra in this particular list. Alia Bhatt reportedly charges Rs 10-20 crore per film and considering her age and experience, this is still a good amount, and much more than many modern male stars.

Well, congratulations to Dipika Padukone , Urvashi Rautela, Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt kapoor for moving in this direction and showing with all their might that 'girl power' is indeed the way forward.
