Priyanka Chopra Income
Priyanka Chopra has earned a fantastic income in the period between June 1, 2016 to June 1, 2017 owing to the large number of Bollywood and Hollywood movies that she is acting in.
She made a whopping income of $10 million, or Rs 65 crore, in the said period.
In 2016, Priyanka had earned $11 million.
Forbes rich list position
According to Forbes latest Celebrity 100 list, Priyanka Chopra’s income in the year 2017 was Rs. 68 crore.
Priyanka Chopra is the only female to make it to the Forbes Top-10 highest-paid Indian celebrities.
The reason for the high income earned by the 38 year old starlet is because of her blockbuster movies like ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and her role in ‘Quantico’.
Her debut Hollywood movie named ‘Baywatch’ also contributed in a big way to her income and net worth.
Priyanka Chopra Net Worth
Priyanka Chopra’s net worth can be estimated on the basis of the income that she has earned in FY 2016-17.
Because she has earned Rs. 68 crore in one year and because she has been acting for the past ten years as an A-list star, we can estimate her net worth at Rs. 500 crore.
This estimate of the net worth is on the basis that Priyanka would have paid a large amount of tax from her income. The balance would have been invested by her in securities such as stocks, bonds, debentures etc.
She also owns a palatial bungalow in Mumbai and also has a holiday home in the hill station.
These investments would have given Priyanka tax-free income by way of dividends, interest and capital gains.
In addition, the capital appreciation in the value of the securities would have enhanced Priyanka’s net worth to the estimated figure of Rs. 500 crore.
Priyanka Chopra undisclosed income (Income-tax case)
There is a recent income-tax case in which the income-tax department conducted search and seizure action at the home and office of Priyanka Chopra and her mother Madhu Chopra.

I have already stated that all my financial transactions are looked after by my mother, Mrs. Madhu Chopra and since she has admitted that the above mentioned payments are unaccounted, I state that the same is correct and I agree and abide by the same as my mother is fully aware and competent to know everything related to my Finance”.
