    Sad that there is only two women on this list… blows my mind that some of the greats like Meryl Streep is only worth 90 million and Cate Blanchett is only worth 85 million… for people who don’t believe there is much of a wage gap… there you have it!

      They are from Indian cinema dear. Read once about Shahrukh Khan, you will be impressed for sure. I never saw anyone did this much struggle and most importantly he himself predicted that “I will own the film industry” even in his early days of film career.
