It goes without saying every year Bollywood filmmakers release several movies and web series, but this film industry is sometimes a walking contradiction. Even established names still get a paltry salary for their work. They might be big names or no names but you will be stunned at exactly how much these Bollywood actresses got paid for their roles and it’s way less than you think.

5. Parineeti Chopra - 2.1 crore

Being the relative of Priyanka Chopra who makes it to the list of highest-paid actress in India, Parineeti has never overshadowed by her superstar cousin sister. Appearing mainly in Bollywood films, the actress made her acting debut with a romantic comedy-drama called Ladies vs Ricky Bahl.

Her popularity has skyrocketed since the success of the 2019 super hit Kesari produced by Karan Johar. The film starred Akshay Kumar in the lead role and Parineeti in the supporting role. However, Parineeti Chopra earning per movie may not reflect her contribution to those blockbusters.

Pareeniti is said to earn about 2.1 crore for one role.

4. Ileana D’cruz - 1.6 crore

Another name in the lowest paid actress in Bollywood list that will surprise you is Ileana D’cruz. Owning 12.9 million followers on Instagram, the beautiful actress enjoys a massive fan following on social media. D’Cruz debuted in the year 2006 and established herself in the Telugu film industry with several successful films like Jalsa, Kick, and many others.

In 2012, she made her Bollywood debut with the debut with film Barfi. Her effort and versatile roles in the film industry couldn't save Ileana D'cruz from the Bollywood lowest paid actress list in 2020 though. The talented actresses reportedly get a remuneration of around 1.6 crore for each film.

3. Jacqueline Fernandez - 1.6 crore

Touted as a bombshell in the film industry, the Sri Lankan actress who is the former beauty queen at Miss Universe Sri Lanka is also known to be an established actress in the Hindi film industry. In 2009, she entered Bollywood with a movie titled Aladin.

After finishing her study in mass communication from the University of Sydney and working as a TV reporter in her home country Sri Lanka, she joined the competitive modeling industry before venturing into cinema.

The actress got her first breakthrough role in the film Murder 2 in the year 2011 which turned out to be a commercial success. She was last seen in the film Mrs. Serial Killer that got a lukewarm response from the viewers.

Words on the streets have it that Fernandez gets paid only 1.6 crores for one role.

2. Huma Qureshi - 1.2 crore

Been active in the entertainment industry since 2012, Huma’s acting talent, needless to say, is outstanding. Making her debut with a supporting role in the crime movie Gangs of Wasseypur. She has also three times being nominated for Filmfare Awards.

However, for 8 years in the film industry, she hasn’t had any true blockbuster to her credit yet. A bit higher than the Bollywood lowest paid actress in this list, Huma Qureshi earns 1.2 crore for each of her roles, according to reports.

1. Disha Patani - 1 crore

The top name in the list of the lowest paid actress in Bollywood is Disha Patani and this name surely raises a few eyebrows. Disha is currently one of the hottest stars in B-town. With a pretty face and burning hot body, she has established herself as an Internet sensation or national crush.

Disha Patani is a sexy icon of many action dramas but unfortunately falls into the list of lowest paid actress in Bollywood.

Making her acting debut in the Telugu film Loafer in the year 2015, she officially entered the Hindi cinema with the sports drama M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story one year later. Since then she has built up her image as a sexy character. She went on to play a role in films like Baaghi 2 (2018) and Bharat (2019) and both of them were commercial successes. In fact, she mainly stars in big films but with a small role. Rumors are doing the rounds that Disha Patani's income in 2020 is only 1 crore as per film.

Meanwhile, compared to the highest-paid actress in India 2020, Deepika Padukone who reportedly earns $8.6 million for one role, Disha Patani’s salary is way too humble.

Figures about the remuneration of these celebrities in the lowest paid actress in Bollywood list are rumors and they aren’t confirmed by any official websites. We are listing it as a reference.
