Forbes has released its list of the highest paid actresses in the world, & our very own Mastani – Deepika Padukone currently ranks number 10 on that list.
From debuting in 2007 with Om Shanti Om; being addressed as Ranbir Kapoor’s girl friend, to this! Deepika Padukone has come a long long way and the credit goes to none other than Deepika herself! The arduousness, gratitude, simplicity, elegance and graciousness, Deepika is so grounded and humble and all these qualities make her what she is today!
Deepika Padukone’s net worth, as reported by Forbes’, is now a whopping 10 million dollars. However a large part of that is not because of her fee as an actress, but more because of her endorsements. This is said to be in totality of all the work and the brand endorsements that she does. Among the most lucrative ads she’s been a part of are Vistara and Tanishq Jewelry. It would interest you to know that Deepika Padukone is also the ‘only Indian’ on the list, and the ‘only newcomer’ on the list, as well.
As we all are aware that Deepika shall be seen in xXx: TheReturn of Xander Cage with Vin Diesel in 2017 as well, this reminds of our another Hollywood debutante, Priyanka Chopra who is another global star doing wonders, but she did not make a mark in the Forbes’ list!
The list has Jennifer Lawrence on the top, for the second time in a row – with 46 million dollars! Also the wage gap that is talked about between male and female actors is actually true. The male actor to top the list is Robert Downey Jr, who rakes in a whopping 80 million, which is almost double of Jennifer Lawrence..
Well, Deepika Padukone is definitely a superstar and if you remember her in Om Shanti Om, who could have ever thought that (the dialogue)
‘Ek chutki sindoor ki qeemat..‘ will be a whopping 10 million dollars! 🙂
