Lots of surprises on this list!

We saw the top actors of 2017, the men who made all the money at the box office.

Now, it's time to look at the women.

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor don't feature in the list since they didn't have any release in 2017.

Deepika Padukone was also missing in action as Padmavati -- now called Padmavat -- was pushed ahead.

Anushka Sharma and Shraddha Kapoor lost out as they didn't deliver a hit.

Take a look at the actresses who made hay at the box office.


Katrina Kaif
Tiger Zinda Hai: Rs 300 crore (expected)
Jagga Jasoos: Rs 54.50 crore
Total collection: Rs 354.50 crore (expected)

Kat was terrific in the well-reviewed Jagga Jasoos.

Sadly, the film didn't work at the BO. Someday we predict, it will be a cult flick.

Kat made up with Tiger Zinda Hai, which is marching relentlessly towards the Rs 300 crore mark and that sees her top of this list.

2018 will be special for Kat: She has Thugs of Hindostan with Aamir Khan and Zero with Shah Rukh Khan.


Parineeti Chopra
Golmaal Again: Rs 205.70 crore
Meri Pyari Bindu: Rs 9.60 crore
Total collection: Rs 215.30 crore

Parineeti's Meri Pyari Bindu didn't make waves at the turnstiles.

But when she featured in the multi-starrer Golmaal Again, she scored her first double century!

Parineeti should have an eventful 2018, with Sundeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Namastey England.


Bhumi Pednekar
Toilet - Ek Prem Katha: Rs 134.25 crore
Shubh Mangal Savdhan: Rs 43.11 crore
Total collection: Rs 177.36 crore

Bhumi had a 100 percent strike rate with Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Shubh Mangal Savdhan successful at the box office.

Her first release Dum Laga Ke Haisha was a hit as well.


Taapsee Pannu
Judwaa 2: Rs 138.61 crore
Naam Shabana: Rs 37.25 crore
Running Shaadi: Rs 1 crore
Total collection: Rs 176.86 crore

If it wasn't for the long-delayed release of Running Shaadi, Taapsee's average would have been better.

She saw big success in Judwaa 2 and scored as a solo leading lady in Naam Shabana.


Jacqueline Fernandez
Judwaa 2: Rs 138.61 crore
A Gentleman : Rs 20.70 crore
Total collection: Rs 159.31 crore

Jacqueline is doing well with her masala big ticket outings.

Even though A Gentleman failed, Judwaa 2 delivered a Rs 100 crore success.

Mahira Khan
Raees: Rs 137.51 crore
Total collection: Rs 137.51 crore

With her solitary release, the Pakistani actress managed a decent success with the Shah Rukh Khan starrer.


Ileana D'Cruz
Baadshaho: Rs 78 crore
Mubarakan: Rs 55.59
Total collection: Rs 133.59 crore

Baadshaho stopped short of sprinting towards the 100 crore mark while Mubarakan's run was cut off even though it was made for bigger bucks.

Yami Gautam
Kaabil: Rs 116 crore
Sarkar 3: Rs 10 crore
Total collection: 126 crore

If not for the disaster that Sarkar 3 was, Yami would have enjoyed a better strike rate.

She had a significant role in Kaabil and that gave her credit.


Huma Qureshi
Jolly LLB 2: Rs 117 crore
Dobaara: Rs 1 crore
Total collection: Rs 118 crore

Dobaara was a disaster, but Jolly LLB 2, a superhit, save the year for Huma.


>Alia Bhatt
Badrinath Ki Dulhania: Rs 116.60 crore
Total collection: Rs 116.60 crore

Alia had just one release and she delivered a superhit.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania had an author-backed role for her and she did full justice to it.

She makes a good pair with Varun Dhawan, doesn't she?
