Like many other Bollywood actresses, Jagdeep has seen a steady rise in her career. After she acted in a couple of successful films, her name began to be noticed for good roles in more films. But how much does Jagdeep Net Worth? And does she deserve the much-coveted Bollywood title of “Indian Female Actor of Choice?” Many celebrities earn millions of dollars per year and boast about their bank accounts and assets. And still, they maintain low profiles and hide their salaries and bank balances from the general public.
Jagdeep Net Worth $21.5 million
But in Bollywood, the directors often go to great lengths to conceal how little they really earn from a film. Some even refuse to talk about the budget and production costs. Is it because the film is a secret? Well, yes… but it isn’t like the movie is some kind of major production, right?
There have been instances where the director or the producer of a Bollywood film has been questioned regarding their earnings. The reason for this is that the salary of an actor is never publicized. The reason is that the directors will not be able to afford to advertise it because the film’s success (budgets over the projection) could lead to protests. The directors know very well that no matter how meager the pay is, it will still be a victory if the film becomes a box office hit. If the film makes a huge splash at the box office, their reputation will improve and word of mouth is bound to spread about their earning capabilities.
It is also interesting to note that some of the most popular actresses have had to battle for their roles. Mariam Khan had to fight for her role as Hana in Lagaazee. Besides her amazing performance, she was also forced to shed a few pounds so that the director (rightly so) could cast her in a different character. Mariam was one of the very first female Bollywood actors to be noticed by the directors.
Some other actresses who have been paid surprisingly well for their roles in Bollywood movies are Aishwarya Rai and Madhubala. Aishwarya Rai earned quite a bit of money for her part in Sholay. She even received a special tribute by the then President of India. After her impressive performance, Aishwarya Rai made it big and started her own show, which made her even more famous.
Jagdeep Bharti is another talented actor who has been paid remarkably well for his role in a film called Om Shanti Om. However, the film didn’t do well at the box office. But this actor too has been given a pat on his back for his acting abilities. One thing we all know about Bollywood is that even its best and worst films have managed to make the right impact with the audience.
