Actress Priyanka Chopra seems unstoppable. She has been consistently climbing the ladder of success internationally. After winning the People’s Choice Award earlier this year for her performance in the TV series Quantico, she featured in the Time magazine’s list of 100 most influential people. 

Following this, she appeared in Hollywood’s The Royals List by W Magazine recently. Now, just a couple of days later, she has another achievement up her sleeve. She has entered the list of 10 highest paid TV actresses in the world by Forbes magazine. She is ranked number 8 with earnings of $11 million. 

The list is headed by Sofia Vergara with $43 million. She is famous for her successful TV show, Modern Family. Vergara is followed by Kaley Cuoco ($24.5 million) and Mindy Kaling ($15 million). 

Just earlier this year, Forbes included Deepika Padukone in the list of world’s highest-paid actresses. She featured on number 10 with earnings worth $10 million. As Chopra has a million more than her, it makes her the highest-paid Hindi cinema actress. 

The Desi Girl is currently in the US filming for the second season of Quantico. Back home, she is ready with her first Marathi production, Ventilator.
