It’s Official! Ash Is The Highest Paid Actress

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been signed for a whopping Rs 4 crores for Shankar’s Robot. And this is no April Fool’s joke, we are playing. Yes, you are reading it correct...Its for her role as female lead opposite south superstar Rajnikant in that has won Ash the award for being the highest paid actress. 

An industry insider informs us that Aishwaya demanded 6 crores after assessing the scale of this film. Apparently in south, actors earn in crores but when it comes to actresses, they pay less. It is a known fact that their known and popular actresses have had to settle for less than a crore. 

Former Miss World Aishwarya Rai is said to be the most beautiful woman in the world, even after 14 yrs. when she won the crown. Her brand and international recognition clearly speak the status she enjoys… and now her paychecks also say so.

Aishwarya is now officially Bollywood’s highest paid actress. Its for her role as female lead opposite south superstar Rajnikant that has won Ash the award. The actress has been signed for a whopping Rs 4 crores for Shankar’s Robot.

The amount is certainly not comparable to what Bollywood actors get, which usually runs into Rs. 20-30 crores, but is definitely more than what any other actress gets.

When asked, Aishwarya did not speak about the money. She said, “I have always been a professional as an actor. I don’t believe in the number games. I believe in my work. I am a professional and other things don’t matter to me.” 

Aishwarya beat Kareena Kapoor, who has been singed for 3.5 crores which was considered as the highest price for an actress in Bollywood.

The news also says that Ash was adamant on demanding Rs. 6 crore for the role but then settled for less after Rajnikant, who is a close friend of father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan, talked to him.
