MUMBAI: India's Priyanka Chopra has made her competition eat humble pie once again by hopping on to the latest global Top female 10 TV actors list put out annually by Forbes.

She placed eighth with a combined asset of USD 11 million in earnings from her ABC TV show Quantico and endorsements. She is preceded by Castle hitmaker Stana Katric who also debuted on the list this year.

Looking at it comparatively, Chopra has already beaten Bollywood's current hot favourite Deepika Padukone, who featured in Forbes list of top ten paid actresses at tenth place with USD 10 million dollars to her name.

"New to the list is Priyanka Chopra, who stars on ABC’s Quantico. While Chopra may be relatively new to an American audience, she is one of the most famous faces in India. In the past year, she has starred in two Bollywood mega films (Bajirao Mastani and Jai Gangaajal) and will take her big-screen talent stateside later this year with one of the lead roles in Baywatch alongside Hollywood heavy-hitters including Dwayne Johnson, the world’s highest-paid actor," read the magazine's report.

Forbes also spoke about Priyanka’s endorsement deals, "But like most television actresses (and actresses, in general), her millions are not made from screen time alone. Chopra is one of India’s top picks for advertisers, recently winning a seven-figure deal with sparkling juice brand Appy Fizz."

Priyanka is at currently shooting for Quantico season two, which will premiere in late September. The actress is also ready with her Hollywood debut Baywatch,in which she stars opposite Dwayne Johnson, who happens to be Forbes’ highest paid actor.
