In the list of highest-paid actresses in tinsel town, this lady wears the crown. If reports are anything to go by, the actress was paid close to Rs. 8 crore for Madhur Bhandarkar’s – HEROINE, the highest that has ever been paid to any leading lady in the history of Bollywood. Standing tall amidst an industry ruled by the leading men, Kareena Kapoor who was recently immortalized in wax at the prestigious Madame Tussaud Wax Museum, is the first actress to join the much coveted 100 crore club. Having starred in 4 films that have grossed over 100 crore at the domestic box office in less than 2 years, a feat no other Bollywood star has achieved so far, Kareena Kapoor has established herself a force to reckon with.
Kareena Kapoor is Biggest Bollywood brand
Apart from achieving historic box office success and being the only actress to have worked with all of the industry’s top notch actors, Kareena Kapoor is also the leading actress in the brand space as per official TAM reports, with the highest number of brands in her kitty in comparison to her contemporaries. Says an agency insider, “Today, actors earn more than 50% of their annual income from brand endorsements, shows and star appearances. Kareena comes right after the Khans in the list of endorsements, and if you count cricketers, only after Sachin and Dhoni.” On a high note says a trade analyst, ”There is no competition with Kareena Kapoor. Talking about numbers and standings in the industry, she is the entire 1-10 margin. She is the Amitabh Bachchan of her time, there were constant comparisons with her contemporaries but with her recent films she is here to prove she is her only competition.”
