Vidya Balan tops annual list of highest-paid actresses

In 2019 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (October 15) that Balan is the highest-paid actress in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between September 2020 and September 2021, a nearly $40 million lead over her closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The Indian actress has an estimated net worth of $215 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Balan Burger” chain) in New Delhi, a Football Team (the “Ottapalam Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbalan - India), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Vidya) and a fashion line called “Vidya Balan Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Vidya fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
