5 Bollywood Actress Who Were Paid More Than Their Male Co-Stars And They Deserved It

Gender pay gap not only exists in the corporate sector but it is present in Bollywood as well. Over the time, we have seen many leading ladies raising their voices against the pay parity. It won’t be wrong to say that the Hindi film industry is at a good position now where stars are getting paid based on their talent and not on their gender.

Well, there are some actresses who were paid more than their male counterparts in their movies proving talent has nothing to do with the gender. Have a look:

1. Deepika Padukone

Deepika is one of the highest-paid actresses of Bollywood. With back-to-back hits, Deepika became a bankable star. It is said that the lady charges around Rs 26 crore per film and reportedly, she was paid around Rs 12 crore for Padmaavat. Apparently, her co-star Ranveer Singh got Rs 7-8 crore for the movie.

It was heard that during one of the interviews, Amitabh Bachchan also said that Deepika was paid more than him for Piku.
