Deepika Padukone becomes world’s 10th highest paid actress: Forbes

New Delhi, Aug. 24 : Joining the league of Hollywood A-listers, Deepika Padukone recently made her way to the most coveted list of world's highest-paid actresses by Forbes.

While American actress Jennifer Lawrence topped the list for the second consecutive year with a whooping 46 million dollar payday, the 30-year old Bollywood actress is at the tenth spot with gross earnings of 10 million dollars.

The 'Hunger Games' star's impressive income majorly consists of a profit slice from 653.4 million, the box-office collection of the final flick of 'Hunger Games' franchise and a mammoth upfront fee for the forthcoming space adventure movie 'Passengers'.

While her total earning is 11.5 percent less from 52 million dollar in 2015, the ace actress remains to rule the highest paid list.

Following her, second in the list is Melissa McCarthy, notching 33 million dollars over 12 months. Together, the 10 highest-paid actresses of the world garnered a joint pre-tax amount of 205 million dollars between June 2015 and June 2016.

Forbes will release its list of the world's highest-paid actors on August 25..
