Priyanka Chopra, with earnings of ₹65 crore ($10 million), has ranked eighth on the list of the ‘World’s Highest-Paid TV Actresses 2017’ by Forbes. Priyanka, who starred in the American series ‘Quantico’, featured on the list for the first time in 2016. Meanwhile, ‘Modern Family’ actress Sofia Vergara has topped the list with earnings of $41.5 million.
Chopra appeared on the list for the first time in 2016, owing to her remuneration for the ABC show Quantico. The actor starred in the second season of the show and the Hollywood film Baywatch this year, alongside renowned actor Dwayne Johnson.
The Bollywood star also endorses a range of products and Forbes called it Chopra’s “most consistent money-maker”. This has been dubbed as the reason her earnings are over $15 million ahead of the number two on the list, Big Bang Theory star, Kaley Cuoco, who made $26 million between 2016 and 2017.
Priyanka Chopra and her previously reported $10 million hauls were enough to score a number 8 spot on the list. It also made her the seventh highest-paid Bollywood star during the same period.
