Forbes reveals whopping salary of Priyanka Chopra in 2017
New Delhi : Priyanka Chopra has become a global star today and her earnings have increased in accordance too. On one side she is rocking the West and on the other hand she is also taking time out to be in the Indian cinema too.
Recently, she moved out of Salman Khan's 'Bharat' and after many speculations over the reasons, one of them states that she refused the project over compensation issue. She was offered Rs 6 crores, which apparently was less as per her stature.
Priyanka had stepped in the west in 2014 as FBI agent Alex Parrish in famous American TV series Quantico. The series has been discontinued after its third season a few months ago.
She shared an emotional post mentioning about the end of the show. She wrote: "As the series ends, I am saying goodbye to Alex Parrish. As you'll see, her story will come full circle...and that is the best feeling as an actor. Bringing Alex to life has challenged me physically and emotionally, but even more significant it has (I hope) cracked the door open for female talent and women of color to play leading ladies. Thank you for opening your homes and hearts to me every week! Thank you to the cast and crew of #Quantico for being such an amazing team to work with, for all the memories that I will cherish...memories of laughter, of learning new things, of making friends for life. It was a pleasure working with each and every one of you, and I look forward to crossing paths again!"
She also acted in Hollywood movies like Baywatch, though it received a lot of negative criticism.
Back in Bollywood, Priyanka now has Shonali Bose's The Sky Is Pink with Zaira Wasim and Farhan Ahktar. The actress chose the film over Salman-starrer Bharat.
Along with films in both Bollywood and Hollywood, Priyanka is the ambassador of a shampoo brand and a clothing brand, both of which added to her earnings last year.
