The three actors also made it to the top 30 list of highest paid actors and actresses in the world.

Only two women made it to the top 10 list though. Deepika Padukone at #6 made a total of $11 million mostly through her endorsements and the upfront fee for her upcoming film, Padmavati.

Priyanka Chopra at #7 earned a million less than Deepika. Priyanka’s earnings from ABC’s Quantico and Baywatch reboot, which failed to make a big mark at the box office, helped her reach the total earnings of $10 million.

Earnings estimates are tracked from June 1, 2016 to June 1, 2017 and based on data from Box Office India, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders.
