Leading Indian actress Deepika Padukone has made her debut among the world’s top 10 highest paid actresses with earnings of USD 10 million dollars in a list alongside Hollywood heavyweights Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts and Chinese actress Fan Bingbing.

Padukone, 30, is the only Indian actress and the sole newcomer in Forbes’ 2016 list of the ‘World’s Highest-Paid Actresses’, coming in on the 10th spot.

Forbes said Padukone has”scored box office gold” in Bollywood movies such as”Bajirao Mastani”and”Piku”.

While she earns less than her Hollywood counterparts for roles, Padukone “compensates with over a dozen lucrative endorsements”, which “have helped her hedge against a deep pay gap in Bollywood”.

2. Melissa McCarthy: $33 million

3. Scarlett Johansson: $25 million

4. Fan Bingbing: $21 million
