The shocking truth about star prices!
Aamir Khan's price, no wonder he only does one movie every 3 years.
jatt muaja krda a. rabb nae thod koi na rakhi burahhhh
Little buddy amir keep it up!!
katrina is the most popular actress in bollywood but her acting is not clear ..........but her acting per film is 3-5 caror ..OMG
What do they pay Kat & John for? To show their wooden faces and fake giggles on screen-that is seriously lame!
Hahaha john gets paid more than kareena
John doesn't have to give expressions and he gets paid for it lol
ha ha katrina charges 4 crores for no acting ...
ya kat is 1of the britisher but her her acting for indian hindi filmes is wonderfull & her sexy scense are fier.i have observed a lotshe do with hardwork her every scense & every shots of every filmes.kat is only one of the best & top actress of whole bolywoodi love katrina
did kareena and priyanka charge like around 6 crore each for heroine/zanjeer? and didn't vidya charge a lot (even more then farhan) for skse? so shouldnt' they be higher
Salman khan bang bang bang....,love u...SADY
heythey should get in lakhs max
Gone the days when actresses like Hema Malini and Sridevi used to charge more than the heroes if not equal.
WHY isn't emraan hashmi on this list? He better be earning as much as Ranbir. Granted the guy doesn't work with the biggest banners but he is the only one who has given consistent hits in his career unlike Ajay and Sanjay who have had flops.
amir khan ka rate boht ziada. please actrer aur actress apna apna rate kam karo.
aamir 40 crores...what a joke!
Ajay Devgan deserves to be paid more than Akshay Kumar! Ajay has been consistent and his films did 100 crore+ without any marketing or promotion! He's a two time National Award winning actor! Why should he be ignored in favour of overrated khiladi?
Actresses are still believed to be replaceable lot. Even despite their peak, heroines like Hema, Sridevi, Madhuri used to get paid far less than their male counterparts.
Among male actors, guys like Imran, Shahid are grossly overpaid! One can understand Sanjay Dutt or Saif get more money probably because they are senior and are also producers. What have Imran and Shahid done? Ever given a hit on their own? Without an established actress or their uncle making films for them?
Bloody hell!!!! Katrina 3 to 4 cr for what darling? to exemplify what bad acting should be like? or to expose to the world how good looking you are? ridiculous
The only heroines that should be even getting money are Priyanka, Kareena and Vidya (maybe Anushka)But Deepika, Sonam & Katrina? They should be getting 1 crore max. They don't DO anything.
PC, Vidya & Bebo are expected, at times to carry an entire film on their shoulders, but because of the stereotype of actresses, get paid the same as Katrina does for standing in a Manish Malhotra saree romancing Akshay. It doesn't require the same amount of talent, but because actresses are known to be the "glam dolls" they all get paid the same.
The actors (most) do deserve the amount they're getting because the success of the film depends on them, thus why SRK gets 20 crores, and John gets 7, for example. SRK's film is more likely to be a hit, so it costs more to get him in a movie.
John and Imran get paid more than Vidya...r u serious!!!!
Why are actresses making far less than the actors?!! Talk about discrimination #$!#$@Q!!!
Aamir is in a league of his own. He does not try to make extra money by even going to the extent of charging fees to attend people's private parties. Nor does he dance at others' weddings or do any stage/award shows or make guest appearances. He does not go to the extent of doing even ads for alcoholic drinks to make quick bucks. He is very careful and selective about products he endorses. Still he's the highest paid actor of Bollywood! Talent and quality speak for itself!
Aamir Khan deserves it! His films are all successes and give profits. And his track record has been flawless in last decade. Plus he budgets his films sensibly. Never goes overboard. And as a brand ambassador he brings a sense of exclusivity to any brand, because he does not do too many endorsements.
His films have assured quality, good content and every filmmaker is forever vying to sign him because his name brings a certain value, because he enjoys respect and trust among audiences.
His strategy for keeping share in profits is good. He takes responsibility in case the film does not succeed. If the film is a success, he gets lot more money due to share as per profits, and if the film is not successful, then he gets less money. He is not like other stars who take their paychecks worth crores in advance, while the burden of film's failure falls completely on producer's shoulder.
LOL at a useless hater who thought Aamir's fees is a share in budget!! Poor guy or gal did not know the difference between budget or profit I guess.
And to the person who said SRK's films are bigger hits internationally - please look up box office websites dear! In any Indian film's revenue, 50% share of collections depend on money the film made in India! Overseas accounts for only 16-20% of an Indian film's revenue! Also, Aamir's 3 Idiots is the biggest grosser - both in India and overseas now. It's funny how fans of a star ignore the 1.2 billion people of India and think the entire box office collection and profits of an Indian film depend on overseas! :D
Brush up knowledge haters, before making comments in thin air!
KAREEN SHOULD BE GITING MORE MONEEY THEN KAT. TEAM BEBO
kareena deserve more then katrina. i dont understand why katrina is getting same as kareena. katrina doesnt know how to act and no Hindi language and ists so sad just becoz she is tall and white. kareena u rock and dserve more than every actress and been in industry for 10 or more yrs. go kareena
As an actress pc really deserve more than kat and bebo.
John 5-7 cr. for what? Bad acting in bad flops.

And 40 crore for Aamir is also exaggerated and a joke. Here are the facts : Total budget of 3 idiots was : 35 crore (how can aamir charge 40 crore?). Budget of fana was 30 crore, TZP 12 crore, dhobi ghat 10 crore, and ghajini was 60 crore . Even for ghajini, producers are not gonna pay him 2/3 (40 crore) for a movie whose total budget is 60 core, no way they can make the movie within remaining 20 crore, and pay for the sets, shooting, fight scenes, marketing, other actors, technicians, etc. Also, for Dhoom-3 and Talash, aamir isn't paid 40 crore. Talaash is sold to distributors at 80 crore, means its production cost would be somewhat lesser (around 60 crore). Again with the logic above, producer/director is not going to pay him 2/3rd (or 66%) of the total cost of making the movie.
calm down dimwit, do google a bit or at least read the article carefully before you decide to strain our eyes with your verbal diarrhea. It's the share in PROFIT not budget. Now scroll up and read it again. Do you know how much money 3 idiots and Ghajini have made? And FYI, TZP, Dhobi Ghat were produced by himself. He doesn't have to share his profit. He demands a lion's share only in the movies that are not produced by him.
I think salman and katrina are very lucky otherwise they dont have talent.
Both priyanka and vidya are smart actresses. Pc know how to make any apart from movies and vidya choice of movies are superb.
Today this trend is changing. Pc getting offer of 11 crore and bebo getting offer of 8 crore.
You nailed it... totally agree with you..................................................Sun, 2012-04-08 20:28 — Anonymous
I don't think the number for the actors is correct. Akshay cannot get paid 18-20 crore a movie. Housefull -2 's budget is 45 crore, producer -director are not going to pay akshay 20 crore , and then keep aside the remaining 25 crore for paying the remaining 11 actors, technicians, sets, marketing , productions costs, etc etc. Its just not possible.Same for his other movies- patiala house, thank you, khaat meeta, houseful, action replay they are overall made at budget of 35-40 crore, how can he get 20 crore in that?
John Abraham getting 5-7 crore is also cant be possible, firstly he isn't a lead actor, always had side roles ; Secondarily the budget of movies where he is working as a side actor is 10-20 crore, He cannot get 5-7 crore for his roles is 7 khoon maaf, jhoota hi sahi, force,housefull -2, de dhana dhan aashiyaen, shootout at wadwa , dostana, new-york when the lead actor/actress (PC, Katrina) even does not get paid that much , and the budget of most of these movies are within 15-20 crore
Also, Imran getting more then Kareena? Doesn't make sense at all
Disusting. Aamir was paid 40 crores for Dhoom 3 and Salman was paid 38 crores for Ek Tha Tiger so what does that leave for the heroines? Oh yeah 3 to 4 crores, thats it! I get that the Khans have the right to demand big paychecks since they are big box office draws but demanding up to 40 crores and leaving NOTHING for the actresses is just plain ridiculous. No wonder the actresses are so underpaid in this industry.
Pc and vidya should get more.
katrina all the way!!!!!!!
Ohh..Kareena's PR who planted those 8 crore stories must be ashamed!!
40 cr for amir lucky manCr for movies we should get tht money for tolerating thm
Katrina and Vidya should be paid much more. They generate better returns than the other actresses and some actors. Anushka, Shahid, Deepika and Imran (though I love him) should be paid less.
The women who only play small eye candy roles and can't pull in the box office numbers should not be paid more just because they're being paid less than the men. The men who play small bogus roles and don't pull in the numbers should be paid an equally low salary to the low performing women.
Bollywood films are almost always made for profit and the pay should be given out according to the actor's profitability. The Khans are profitable :)
Actresses should at least deserve half the price of what top male stars are getting paid. Dunno why such attitude persists against these actresses. its gender discrimination. Priyanka, kareena and vidya are reigning actresses they deserve to be paid more than this undeserving male actors like john abraham and sanjay dutt. Amitabh gets paid 4 to 6 crores when he should be getting more. His charismatic presence still adds value to any movie. Hrithik should charge more. :D
Reaffirms what we know - sexist as hell. Anyway, VB can charge the sky because she excels at what is the actual, CORE job of an actor and that is ACTING! Please pause for a minute and look at wooden old Katrina's face..please...look. Even here, where all 3 actresses' photos are not so good, you can see some life, some spark in Kareena and Vidya but look at Katrina looking like a dead fish. Think of her roles, her songs, think of those expressionless eyes, those botoxed lips, always overflowing with lip gloss, that horrible, emotionless dialogue delivery, think of those tacky dance movements (the sunny deol of actresses), think of the sheer emptiness of her performances...I could go on and on...then look at what she gets paid. Why? Why? Why? She can't even do the basic job of an actress. I am continuously amazed by what a Salman Khan did for her...made her life for sure. PV pease post this!
Anushka doesnt deserve that kind of amount. What for is Akshay getting this many crores per film.
look at this!some people are wondering why Katrina is getting this much money instead of this huge difference of payment between Actors and Actresses!and u wonder why actresses r lagged behind?this is because of us....we Indian still can't give women the respect that they deserve!I'm a guy btw
36crores difference between Aamir & Kareena's pay!!! But that's nothing, flop Mr. Abraham getting 7crores & fab Ms. Balan getting 2.5crores, while she should be getting minimum 9-10crs!!!!!! And Kat pls give me u'r job, I can make 4crs by standing in the background, batting my eyes, smiling & shaking my hips???? Even a barbie doll should get more than Katrina!!!!
Why mass Indian society hates Katrina Kaif, when shes the hottest thing to represent India since well...ever is beyond me. Embrace her talent and beauty and ull all sleep better at night. Deepika hasnt had a hit since she first entered the industy and she gets love like she''s the Indian Meryl Streep. However Kat's had hit after hit that too on her own merit and no one can dish out some credit where it's due. Team Kat for ever!!!
That's messed up why arent actress paid more
wow. all of kat haters who r you to say she doesn't deserve it. she works very hard and most of the industry knows it. she has worked with everyone in bollywood and everyone says she is very dedicated and hardworking and as long as she continues to do so she gonna be earning more. its not only about talent. a person could be as talented as anybody else but its how u use it. if someone who has the talent doesnt respect their directors or producers then their not gonna get work from them. making a movie is not about one person its about a whole production team which consists of technicians,music directors, actors, etc. all the directors kat has worked with are working with her again. for example kabir khan she did new york with him and now their doing ek tha tiger.
Pc actually have nearly 10 flats in mumbai. She is very intellegent and i am sure she earns more than any other actresses in bollywood from stage shows.
I am not a fan of Katrina Kaif (she is undoubtedly a mediocre actress), but in terms of bankability, she deserves that paycheck. She is the only actress other than Vidya who can get butts on a seat (nobody went to watch Mere Brother ki Dulhan because Imran Khan - whom I love - was in the movie.) Also, Vidya and Katrina really make a push when it comes to the marketing of their films. I think Vidya's paycheck makes sense since one of the reasons her films do so well is because they are tightly budgeted, and if she started demanding a huge payday, the budgets would go for a toss. I've said this before, but Vidya should keep her paycheck reasonable and take a cut of the profits and a producer credit. That way, she gets paid what she deserves ( and she deserves a LOT) without inflating her film's costs.
Kat dont deserve such amount as an actress.
Shahidd?? charges THAT much? he is a huge flop!
ANUSHKA?? WHAT? chiii.... i dont even consider her a bollywood actress
lmao u must be a "she"
imran khan really? for wht , even a monkey has more expression on its face than him. idiot can't act for nuts.katrina kaif hmmmm !
Is Aamir Khan serious with that amount? 40 crores PLUS box office share? Ridiculous. At least SRK demands a reasoble price even though his movies are bigger hits internationally than Salman and Aamir combined and don't even get me started on how unfair the paychecks for the heroines are.
katrina gets paid that much cause of her box office success and her hardwork. nobody in bollywood has tht much hits as she. and for those who say its because of Salman u have to be kidding because he wouldn't have as much flops as he does. After boom, she did bigger films in the south and then Sarkar which got her noticed. She would still be doing movies lik she does no matter what. she has a talent for picking good scripts and as long as she continues to improve and to stick to her movie choices as always she's gonna get more successful cause she does work hard even everyone in the industry knows tht.So haters hate cause that's only gonna make her work harder.
Umm this isn't accurate. Sallu took home 50 crores for bodyguard and demanded 38 crores from YRF for Ek Tha Tiger. Also SRK said he doesn't do films for money and that he never duscusses the paycheck with the producers until the film is done so I guess that's why he's payed less than Sallu and Aamir
The list for heroines is so sad. Kareena and Vidya deserve more
Women should get the same equal pay as the men. Some of these bloggers going after these actresses are most disgusting human beings, especially if they are girls. You do not have a backbone and will always have a inferior complex. Grow up and support your sisters instead of hating and creating catfights among them. Most of you really have low self-esteem and simply insecure about yourself.
So much sexism, i cannot believe the difference between Kareena and Amir's salaries !!Vidya Balan practically carries the entire movie on her shoulders, she deserves a Khan paycheck.
chal bay katrina 18 crore aur kareena 19 crore charge krti he q k kareena ne back 2 back hits di he..aur deepika 8-9 crore charge krti he per film aur brand endors me sab se ziada charge krtne lagi he ab 5crore...aur priyanka ko ZANJEER k remak k liye 11crores offer ho chuke he aur akshay ko OUTIM k sequel k liye 41 crores offer hue he....
I find it really funny to see that John and Imran Khan get paid 5-7 crores....If I had to play devil's advocate here I will say John still provides his looks if not acting to a movie....but what does Imran contribute....his acting has been the same since his first movie.....same way of talking, same expression, same everything...Imran is very average looking....this explains some ppl's destiny plays a huge role...they all must have done some huge charitable deeds in their previous lifetimes....reaping the benefits now...
chal bay ye sab galat he....Kreeena 19 crore n katrina 18 crore charge krti he..aur Priyanka ko abi ZANJEER k remak k liye 11 crores offer hue thay...n DEEPIKA b 8-9-10 crore charge krti he aur brand endors me sab ziada b deepika e charge kr rae he ab 5crore...aur akshay ko OUTIM sequel k liye 41 crore pffer hue he.....
WORST, MOST UNDESERVING ACTRESS ON THAT LIST - KATRINA KAIFWORST, MOST UNDESERVING ACTOR ON THAT LIST - AKSHAY KUMAR
i think these figures are wrong.shahrukh must be doing movies for free.saare flop chal rahe hai
Sad but truth, I can totally believe this, in Kochin there was an opening of some new mall, SRK was a guest for the opening, and you know how much he charged? just for few minutes (30 minutes max)of appearance? 5 Cr.
aamir khan 40 Cr? really so overrated,
Vidya should get paid more, and yes share of profit also. she is quite amazing.Sadly how much less actresses get paid.. and yes Jon A and Imran seriously? this much money? for what? not acting? and giving flops?also Ajay is far better than what he gets. he is just awesome.
Sexism at its worst. Its one thing to say that actors are paid better in Bollywood but to see the jawdropping difference in the payscale is just not forgivable. Women in India need to stand up. This is just one example of the million different ways in which women are discriminated on a daily basis.
Aamir khan so much money? Seriously? he is a good actor still too much money. and yes Vidya should charge really well! I am amazed how less she is paid considering her movies are hits. and yes KAT total worthless, amazing because of Sallu she is in bollywood. useless woman.life is unfair.Imran and Shahid, john A more than Kareena and Vidya? really? sad..Jon amd imran can not act period. so amazing how unfair it is.
Sun, 2012-04-08 08:14 — Anonymouswhy should she be thanking salman (talentless male actor) whatever she achieved is because of her own hard work and dedication.btw wat d hell shahrukh in every interview says that he doesnt charge for films since 7/8yrs and tell producers to spend that money on the movie instead....but nowadays he mostly work in his own productions so i dont believe on that part and also akshay is the one who charges the most in male actors and not aamir.
I cannot believe talentless Katrina gets that much!! So unfair. She should be thanking Salman Khan every moment of her life for this. Without him, she would have never made it this big, especially post-Boom
priyanka, anushka pay is fine....and vidya should charge 40 cr from now on :DDD shes ms. perfect!
WOAH this is called chauvnism. Sad. I feel sorry for the actresses. Look at how less they are paid.
man.... a very well established actress earns less than a newcomer?!!! kareena earns less than Imran, kareena is his senior...eveything about bollywood is ridiculous, you never hear of an Angelina getting paid less than a newcomer...
it is really the shocking!why why amit-ji so less?why why?
I can't believe Katrina is paid so much to do nothing. I wish I had that job.--------------------lol, true !! she cant even act....well, deepika and anushka cant act too !
SRK is rich
i think vidya needs to be paid 10 crores...shes had more "solo" hits than some of the guys on that list
anyway, the smartest actress is probably priyanka as she invests her money into apartments and renting them out. i dont know if any of the other actresses do this, but they need to start finding alternatives if they dont become up to par with actors soon......................................................................
woow, that is the right decision
The price differences between Actors and Actresses are disgusting! Females getting less for equal roles as men. Akshay 20crs? What the hell??- When was his last hit... No wonder Vidya Balan doesn't work with major heros. Yes I agree would like to see how much Rani charges...I remember when Heroine was announced media was going crazy because Kareena was charging 8crs, that's nothing compared to what the men are charging.
The 'huh, why?' written for deepika should be replaced for Katrina cuz she's more apt for that phrase.. For the stupid frozen half expression and non existent dancing skills they pay this bimbette an effing 3-4 crores? God knows what we Indians see on her, meh! I know deepika also sucks in acting but IMO she's better than this nonsensical woman!FYI, vidya deserves to get paid more than Katrina!
I can't believe Katrina is paid so much to do nothing. I wish I had that job.
i guess after giving all the duds piggs has reduced her fee.as for deepika thats a revelation there. i thought she might charge even less as her movie never score on box office. she can charge more for the endorsements though.vidya should be the highest paid. after working in totally female centric films she needs to be paid much much more then what she is getting paid. how come akshay still manages to get 20 cr and vidya gets only 3 cr. hight of discrimination.
kareena is undeserving of that sum, no offence. if thats how much she gets paid then priyanka should get paid 10 crore and vidya balan 20! they are so much better in terms of acting.
anyway, the smartest actress is probably priyanka as she invests her money into apartments and renting them out. i dont know if any of the other actresses do this, but they need to start finding alternatives if they dont become up to par with actors soon.
I cant believe actress are soo less paid compared to actors..This is really shocking
LOVE THE COMMENT ON DEEPIKA AND SAIF LOL!!!!! I'M HAPPY VIDYA IS CHARGING THAT MUCH..VERY WELL DESERVED.
not counting profit sharing Salman is the highest paid.
no way does YRF pay Anushka 1 to 1.5 crore per film!!
