The leggy lass continues to rule Bollywood, and is now ready to take on the world as well.
After being the highest paid actress thanks to her deal for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati, Deepika Padukone is now one of the highest actresses of the world.
Forbes had released the top ten actresses with the highest earnings this year, which has Deepika Padukone in the tenth list. She has beaten the likes of Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway, and Kristen Stewart. And of course, her Bollywood-Hollywood rival Priyanka Chopra. The list is topped by Jennifer Lawrence, Melissa McCarthy and Scarlett Johannson.
Here are the celebs:
1. Jennifer Lawrence – $46,000,000
2. Melissa McCarthy – $33,000,000
3. Scarlett Johansson – $25,000,000
4. Jennifer Aniston – $21,000,000
5. Fan Bingbing – $17,000,000
6. Charlize Theron – $16,500,000
7. Amy Adams – $13,500,000
8. Julia Roberts – $12,000,000
9. Mila Kunis- $11,000,000
10. Deepika Padukone – $10,000,000
If you wondered how Deepika managed to get into the list, it’s because of her earnings from her film remuneration as well as product endorsement earnings. She is the ambassador of brands like Vogue, Tanishq, Tissot and Axis Bank. Now the latest commercial to fall in her kitty is of Vistara Airlines which is a joint venture by Tata Group and Singapore airlines.
Speaking on the occasion of her being appointed the face of Vistara, Deepika said that, “It is a matter of great pride for me to be associated with Vistara, a brand that is reliable, warm and friendly; a brand that carries the lineage of Tata and Singapore Airlines. Vistara actually makes me look forward to flying again, like I did when I was a child and every flight was a wonder,” Padukone said in a statement issued by the airline.
