Kangana Ranaut takes the crown for highest paid actress in Bollywood overthrowing Deepika Padukone’s title. Reported salary of Ranaut is INR 14 crores. Kangana took this hefty amount for the shooting of her upcoming film Manikarnika- The Queen of Jhansi. The film will be released in 2019.
Gender pay gap is another grave issue which is present in Bollywood where females make a lot less money for a project than their male counterparts. The trend was changed when Deepika Padukone earned more than shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh for Padmaavat film.
Maybe with #MeToo movement such topics of equality will also be raised in India especially Bollywood for a better financial independence of women. Kangana proved herself to be an amazing actor which she is shutting down the haters.
