Bollywood is the most lucrative industry in India, where people, particularly actors make money in millions. They not only make money through films, but also through advertisements and endorsements, besides getting great deal of fame and recognition all over the world. Gone are the days when Bollywood was a masochist institution where males were paid higher than female actresses even though they deserved more. I think it is safe to say that it was a revolutionary time and year when a female actress was paid higher than a male actor. Thanks to Sridevi who is bollywood’s first female superstar. It is said that Sridevi is the first ever female actress in Bollywood who was paid higher than her male colleagues. Well, we must say that it was a glorious time that she made it happen and since then there has been no looking back.
Having said that, it brings us to a time where bollywood actresses are creating milestones in their acting careers and bank balance perhaps, more than a male actor at the given point of time.
