According to a feature in the Hindustan Times' Sunday supplement HT Brunch, Bollywood stars' renumeration for film deals and endorsements has reached an all-time high.

The article stated that until the 1990s, Amitabh Bachchan was the only actor who was paid in crores but the present crop of leading actors and actresses are being paid insane amounts of money if the figures are anything to go by.

While heroines are still fairly behind their leading men, the figures they quote are still sky-high. Check out how much our top actresses take home these days.

Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor is hot property and we know that. But it'd blow your socks off to learn that the Agent Vinod actress' acting fee is a staggering Rs 3-4 crore for a film.

Her endorsement fee is Rs 1 - 1.25 crore per day!

Even as we wait for Chikni Chameli's next outing -- Shah Rukh Khan-starrer untitled Yash Chopra film -- Katrina is said to be raking in impressive Rs 3-4 crore from acting deals and Rs 1-1.25 crore per day from endorsement deals.

Although she's done relatively less work than Kareena in the recent times, her asking price matches Bollywood's current reigning queen's.
