How much money did Priyanka Chopra earn in 2017?

Priyanka Chopra is a global star today. On the one hand, she is making the West swoon over her, and on the other hand, back home, she is working in films that make a difference.

The actress recently walked out of Salman Khan's Bharat for compensation issues.

It was earlier reported that PeeCee left the project because of her wedding with American musician Nick Jonas, but reports later said that Priyanka was being paid an amount of Rs 6 crore for the film, which the actress considered way less given her current stature.

In 2015, Priyanka took over the West by bagging the lead role in American TV series Quantico, in which she played FBI agent Alex Parrish. The series was discontinued earlier this month, after its third season came to an end.
In an emotional note on her Instagram, Priyanka wrote, "As the series ends, I am saying goodbye to Alex Parrish. As you'll see, her story will come full circle...and that is the best feeling as an actor. Bringing Alex to life has challenged me physically and emotionally, but even more significant it has (I hope) cracked the door open for female talent and women of color to play leading ladies. Thank you for opening your homes and hearts to me every week! Thank you to the cast and crew of #Quantico for being such an amazing team to work with, for all the memories that I will cherish...memories of laughter, of learning new things, of making friends for life. It was a pleasure working with each and every one of you, and I look forward to crossing paths again!"

Quantico made Priyanka Chopra a household name beyond the borders of India and Bollywood. The actress bagged her first Hollywood project while working on Quantico.

The film Baywatch, which hit the screens in 2017, earned largely negative reviews, but Priyanka's role was appreciated by critics and fans alike.

Back in Bollywood, Priyanka now has Shonali Bose's The Sky Is Pink with Zaira Wasim and Farhan Ahktar. The actress chose the film over Salman-starrer Bharat.

Along with films in both Bollywood and Hollywood, Priyanka is the ambassador of a shampoo brand and a clothing brand, both of which added to her earnings last year.

According to Forbes, Chopra earned about USD 11 million (Rs 77 crore) in 2017. After taxes, she took home a salary of USD 8 million (Rs 56 crore).
