There has always been this stereotype of paying the male more than the female for the same job and same load. Though there could be seen some changes, the society sure is still backward and way beyond understanding. Take a light moment, for these ladies have shown us that females are no lesser than their male counterparts and have been paid more salary right in Bollywood.
1. Manikarnika: Queen Of Jhansi
The legendary Rani Laxmibai is an inspiration to many and especially women. The upcoming film Manikarnika where Kangana Ranaut plays the role of the Jhansi queen, the actress is reportedly getting paid 11 crores as compared to Richard Keep who get 4 crores or Sonu Sood with 1.5 crores.
The touching film of the famous Khan couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kurbaan, released in 2009 shows how much an actress can achieve more than the actor when her career was escalating. With lines of successful films, Kareena Kapoor sure got paid more than her better half.
It’s Kangana again and this time with Shahid Kapoor. The actress who played the role of Jaanbaz Julia surely got paid more than Shahid and Saif Ali Khan.
The queen of Bollywood is turning heads and making buzz with her upcoming film Padmavati. Reports have it that the Ramleela actress is getting paid a whopping 13 crores for this film closely followed by Ranveer Singh at 11 crores and Shahid Kapoor at 10 crores.
5. Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!
The evergreen film starring Maduri Dixit and Salman Khan is close to heart for so many of you. But do you know that Maduri was paid better than Salman? It was revealed on Twitter by Anupam Kaur that Madhuri was offered 3 – 4 crore for Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! That is one unbelievable info.
It’s Deepika again. The actress playing the daughter of Amitabh Bachchan received a higher pay than him and Irrfan Khan. It was truly a marvelous performance by her in the movie.
7. Katti Batti
The Queen actress (Kangana, once more) charged more than Imran Khan, her co-star in the movie. Imran Khan was not an established actor then.
8. Tanu Weds Manu 2
In the second sequel of Tanu Weds Manu, Kangana Ranaut apparently was paid more than her co-star Madhavan. The series which would be incomplete without her surely did well for her performance.
