Deepika Padukone is no longer in Forbes’ list of highest paid actresses. Emma Stone Tops the list

Forbes has released this year's list of the world's 10 highest paid actresses and homegirl Deepika Padukone, ranked #10 in 2016, has not made the cut this time. As Forbes put it: "The list examined actresses the world over, but no stars from Asia made the cut, as Fan Bingbing and Deepika Padukone dropped off due to quieter years." Deepika's starring role in xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage - also her Hollywood debut - contributed hugely to her earnings of $10 million last year. She has no international project currently and is working on one film at home - the period drama Padmavati, co-starring Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. Also absent from Forbes' 2017 list is Scarlett Johansson - this is the first time in three years that she hasn't made the grade. So who is on the list? Emma Stone, Oscar-winner for La La Land, is #1 for the first time, with Forbes reporting earnings of $26 million. Jennifer Lawrence, who topped the list two years in a row, has slipped to third place, behind Jennifer Aniston. The Jennifers are at $25.5 and $24 million respectively - JLaw made just half of her 2016 total. The top three on the list of 10 are the only actresses to have made over $20 million. They are followed by Melissa McCarthy, Mila Kunis, Emma Watson, Charlize Theron, Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts and Amy Adams. Forbes reports a 16% drop in the cumulative earnings of the world's top actresses - $172.5 million this year, down from $205 million in 2016. Forbes also notes that half the actresses on the list are over 40 - Jennifer Aniston, Melissa McCarthy, Charlize Theron, Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts and Amy Adams - a significant achievement given the scarcity of roles for women their age. Forbes also flags another ugly truth - only 28.7% of speaking roles in films are filled by women. Awaited, the list of the 10 highest paid TV actresses on which Priyanka Chopra might find a place, as she did last year. Here is the full list of the world's highest paid actresses and earnings as ranked by Forbes: 1. Emma Stone - $26 million 2. Jennifer Aniston - $25.5 million 3. Jennifer Lawrence - $24 million 4. Melissa McCarthy - $18 million 5. Mila Kunis - $15.5 million 6. Emma Watson - $14 million 7. Charlize Theron - $14 million 8. Cate Blanchett, - $12 million 9. Julia Roberts - $12 million 10. Amy Adams - $11.5 million

Did Ranbir Kapoor call Sanjay Dutt a fraud?

Ranbir Kapoor, who was last seen in Anurag Kashyap’s Jagga Jassos oppsite Katrina Kaif, is making huge headlines. The actor is prepping up like never-before for his next film, which is based on veteran actor’s Sanjay Dutt’s life. While Ranbir recently stormed the internet with his beefed-up lookhe recently went candid to talk about the Sanjay Dutt biopic. The Rajkumar Hirani film is not portraying a character like Gandhi in fact, we are showing a “very fraud man”, said Ranbir.

The 34-year-old actor spoke To Deccan Chronicle and said, “With the Sanjay Dutt biopic, he has been so honest about his life. We are not portraying a Gandhi like charater. We're portraying a very fraud man. He's someone who is love and disliked. He's the most controversial, and to have the ability to tell about your life so honestly, and to make a movie out of it is very brave”. In an earlier interview, Ranbir Kapoor  said that the Sanjay Dutt biopic will shed light on both highs and lows of the actor’s life. He also says that Sanjay Dutt has been very open about providing details about his life in an utter honest way. The biopic on Sanjay Dutt is being helmed by Rajkumar Hirani. According to Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay is not being hypocrite in providing information about his life. So it won’t be fair to say that the film is trying to portray him as a hero. "We are trying to show a very human side of Sanjay Dutt, his perils, his downfall, his will to fight, his time in jail, terrorism charges, his drug phase, how he handled his mother's death two days before the release of his debut film, his relationship with his father. These were human conflicts in his life," Ranbir Kapoor said. The film also stars Manisha Koirala as Sanjay Dutt’s mother Nargis Dutt, Paresh Rawal as late father Sunil Dutt and Dia Mirza as Manyata Dutt, Sanjay Dutt’s present wife.
