The Bangalore-bred Padukone, who got her big break with 2007′s Om Shanti Om,has since starred in several films that have crossed the $150 million or 100 crore mark–a barometer for box office success in India.

  • She has already scored box office gold in Bollywood movies such as Bajirao Mastaniand Piku. Now Indian actress Deepika Padukone has notched a place among the world’s highest-paid actresses with a $10 million debut.Forbes top 10 Highest-Paid actress in the World
  • Padukone is the only newcomer to theWorld’s Highest-Paid Actresses ranking and the only Indian star to make the cut. Of the 10 list members, 30% including Padukone hail from outside the U.S.
  • The 30-year-old has also become something of a style icon, launching her own label All about You for Indian online shopping site Myntra.
  • These numerous high-paying shills have helped her hedge against a deep pay gap in Bollywood. Though a top male star might earn close to $5 million a movie, prominent Indian actresses rarely clear $1 million a film.
