2019 was a great year for actresses. The women of Kollywood get more substantial roles and new opportunities to carry an entire film by themselves. Some films like Amala Paul's Aadai and Jyothika's Raatchasi made huge waves in the Tamil cinema.

According to a recent report by Cine Ulagam, Kollywood actresses are increasingly getting higher salaries than before the rise of female-centric films. Check it out here:

Nayanthara: Rs 5 crore (RM 2.8 million)
Anushka: Rs 2.5 crore (RM 1.4 million)
Kajal Aggarwal: Rs 1.5 crore (RM 850,000)
Samantha: Rs 1.5 crore (RM 850,000)
Trisha: Rs 1 crore (RM 570,000)
Keerthi Suresh: Rs 1 crore (RM 570,000)
Hansika Motwani, Aishwarya Rajesh, Rashmika and others: Rs 75 lakhs (RM 428,000)

Shocking, isn't it? We are hoping 2020 will only get better for Kollywood actresses and bring in more quality films with bigger roles for females.
