The list evaluates earnings between a period of October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017. As per the list, Ms. Chopra earned ₹68 crore in the year 2017.
With Hollywood projects such as Baywatch already under her belt, and upcoming movie A Kid like Jake on the charts, it is no wonder that Priyanka is topping the charts, be it in terms of popularity or earning power!Other than Priyanka, Khans of Bollywood still ruled the list with Salman Khan topping the list second time in a row, followed by Shahrukh Khan. Additionally, Ranveer Singh also made it to the list on the tenth position.
Priyanka Chopra is a powerhouse of immense talent, and for that talent to be recognized and rewarded is heartening to hear. Here’s hoping Forbes soon has many other talented Indian celebrities on its coveted lists.
