Usually when one thinks of Bollywood as an industry, we see how male dominated it truly is; with a focus on the hero and his story. When it comes to Bollywood actresses, they may have a huge fan following but we often see them in the supporting roles.

However, there has been a drastic shift in the formation of narratives of how much Bollywood actresses are in the spotlight, with movies such as 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' and 'Apki Sulu' really challenging conventional gender roles. The women of Bollywood now have the same edge as their male counterparts to demand as much money and attention as them.

Seeing as tomorrow is International Women's Day, it seems fitting to celebrate the 10 highest paid and influential actresses of Bollywood;
