Actress Deepika Padukone is out of Forbes magazine’s World’s Highest-Paid Actresses 2017 list. The list is led by Hollywood actress Emma Stone. Deepika was 10th in the 2016 list of Forbes.

She has not been included this year despite her Hollywood debut with xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

Stone collected $26 million due to her Oscar-winning performance in the musical La La Land and has surpassed Jennifer Lawrence, who claimed the top spot in 2016 and 2015, reports forbes.com.

Together, the world’s 10 highest-paid actresses tallied a combined $172.5 million between June 1, 2016, and June 1, 2017, before fees and taxes. Earning estimates are based on data from Nielsen, ComScore, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders, reported Business Standard.

Kriti sanon will be seen next in filmmaker Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s rom-com Bareilly Ki Barfi, where she is in her new de-glam avatar as a small-town girl. Though her last Raabta bombed at the box office, Kriti is looking forward to people’s response to Bareilly Ki..

She has portrayed both a girl-next-door and a glamorous characters in her three-year old film career but she believes it is sad when industry tends to typecast the actors.

“It isn’t so much about getting meaty roles as it is about getting typecast. When I had only done two films, Raabta hadn’t released, I had meetings with a few people from the industry for something where they said, ‘this is not the kind of film you like.’

“I was like, but how do you know what I like when I myself don’t know about it. I think people put you in a bracket very fast. They think ‘oh, she has done commercial roles so may be she likes only this or can do only this,”said Sanon.

Sanon said it’s important to find people who are willing to explore an actor’s potential and not go by their on-screen image.

“Putting people in a bracket, where you feel they can only do what they've done till now is not right. You consciously need to follow your heart and do what you feel like to not fall in any bracket. It’s important to find someone who sees the actor inside you,” Kriti added.

The film is scheduled to release on Friday.

Actress Parineeti Chopra enjoyed working in a multi-starrer like Golmaal Again as the actor felt she could go ahead and act without facing any performance anxiety.

The 28-year-old actor, who will next be seen opposite actor Ajay Devgn in the fourth installment of the comedy franchise, said she could concentrate on doing her job as the responsibility of carrying the film was ably shouldered by the huge and supportive cast.

“Sometimes you feel less pressure as you know there are so many stars in the film. It’s not you who is carrying the weight of the film on your shoulders. You can just concentrate on what you have to do and have fun with it,” said Parineeti.

Golmaal 4 is the actor’s first multi-starrer and she said working in a ‘massy entertainer’ like Rohit Shetty's directorial was an education for her.

“It is my first multi-starrer. I got to know you can be in the frame with six-seven characters. The number can also go up to 10-15 till the climax. It was very different as I have mostly worked with one-two co-stars in one go. Also, a film like Golmaal requires different acting and dialogue delivery. I learnt a lot.”

Parineeti said she felt like a crazy fan when she first saw the cast of the film together.
