Bhanurekha Ganesan was born on 10 October 1954, in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, and is an actress, acknowledged as one of the most versatile and finest actresses in Hindi Cinema. She’s been a part of the industry since 1966, and all of her efforts have helped put her net worth to where it is today.

How rich is Rekha? As of mid-2017, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $40 million, mostly earned through a successful career in film, having acted in more than 180 films in over four decades. She’s won various awards, including three Filmfare Awards. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.

Rekha Net Worth $40 million

Rekha was born into a family of actors, and she followed in her father’s footsteps. She quit school at the age of 13 to fully pursue acting; she originally did not want to act, but the family’s need for finance led her to this decision.

One of her first films was in 1966 as a child in “Rangula Ratnam”. She made her heroine debut in “Operation Jackpot Nalli CID 999” in 1969, and also starred in her first Hindi film entitled “Anjana Safar”. – this film ran into censorship problems which delayed it for almost a decade. She originally did not speak Hindi, and had a lot of trouble communicating. In 1970, she was part of two films, one of which was her Bollywood debut in “Sawan Bhadon”; the film became a hit and propelled her to stardom, increasing her net worth significantly. She had a lot of offers afterwards, and would appear in commercially successful films such as “Pran Jay Par Vachan Na Jaye”. Due to criticisms on her physical appearance, she started improving it as well as her acting – she changed dramatically and portrayed a rape victim in the film “Ghar” which was considered by many as the first notable milestone of her career, and she received a Filmfare Award nomination for her performance. She then starred in “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”, which became the biggest hit of the year.

Her net worth continued to increase in the 1980s, leading with the comedy “Khubsoorat”. The film would win a Best Film Filmfare Award, and won her a first Best Actress Award. She received a lot more notice and was given better opportunities; other projects she appeared in during the 1980s include “Umrao Jaan” and “Baseraa”. She also started working in the independent scene to fulfill roles that shied away from her mainstream offers. She was a part of the award-winning drama “Kalyug”, and also became a part of the erotic comedy “Mrichhakatika”. She won her second Filmfare Award for “Khoon Bhari Maang” which she considers one of her most concentrated films.

The 1990s saw a drop in her success, with a lot of her roles criticized by reviewers. She still played leading roles despite her age, but had several films that went unnoticed. She then had a box office hit in “Phiil Bane Angaray”, which got her another Filmfare nomination. Despite this, her film success proved mixed, as she also took on controversial roles. She did win a Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress in “Khiladiyan Ka Khiladi”, which featured her first villainous role. She bounced back in the 2000s with another nominated film in the drama “Lajja”, and became part of the award-winning science fiction film “Koi… Mil Gaya”, which was a critical and financial success. She reprised her role in the sequel “Krrish”, which got numerous awards once again. A few of her latest projects include “Sadiyaan” and “Shamitabh”.

For her personal life, it is known that Rekha married Mukesh Aggarwal in 1990 but he committed suicide a year later. She was also rumored to have married actor Vinod Mehra, but it was later denied. She currently resides in Bandra, Mumbai.

Born Aarti Majmudar on the 3rd March 1978, in Connecticut USA, she is an actress, best known to the world as Priya Koothrappali in the TV series “The Big Bang Theory”, and as Henna in the film “Today’s Special”, among many other differing roles she has secured so far in her career.

Have you ever wondered how rich Aarti Mann is, as of early 2018? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Mann’s net worth is as high as $400,000, an amount earned through her successful career, active since the mid- 2000s.

Aarti Mann Net Worth $400,000

Of Indian ancestry, Aarti alongside her brother Nishad, and sister Kruti moved a lot within Pennsylvania with her family when she was still a toddler, including living in Pittsburgh, Mt. Lebanon, Wexford and Fox Chapel. She went to Shady Side Academy located in Point Breeze, and after matriculation enrolled at New York University, from which she earned a degree in film writing and directing.

Aarti made her professional acting debut in 2006, in the film “The Memsahib”, directed by her sister Kruti, who is a filmmaker, who was mainly responsible for luring Aarti towards the performing arts, since their parents are doctors and wanted all their children to follow in their footsteps. After her debut, Aarti appeared in a commercial for Volvo, and started auditioning for new film and television roles. However, she secured only minor roles in such TV series as “Quarterlife” (2008), and “Heroes” (2009), until in 2010 luck smiled upon her as she was chosen for the part of Priya Koothrappali in the TV comedy series “The Big Bang Theory” (2010-2011), which increased her net worth to a large degree. Her career now got underway, and in 2012 she featured in the comedy-drama film “The Monogamy Experiment”, starring Amy Rider, Edgar Morais and Tohory Masamune, while in 2015 she made a notable appearance in the romantic comedy film “I’ll See You in My Dreams”, with Blythe Danner, Martin Starr and Sam Elliott in the lead roles, which further increased her net worth.

She is now working on the drama film “Love Sonia”, starring Demi Moore, Freida Pinto and Mark Duplass, scheduled for release later this year, so her net worth is certainly still rising.

When it comes to her personal life, Aarti is married to Purvesh Mankad, with whom she has a daughter. She now resides in Los Angeles with her family.

Milla Jovovich Net Worth

Published

on

Milla Natasha Jovovich was born on 17 December 1975, in Kiev, Ukraine (then in the USSR), and is a model, actress and singer, perhaps best known for her breakthrough role in the film “The Fifth Element” in 1997, with Bruce Willis and Gary Oldman.

So just how rich is Milla Jovovich, as of late 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Milla has a net worth of over $45 million, accumulated from her various career elements spanning almost 30 years since she began modelling in 1987.

Milla Jovovich Net Worth $45 Million

Milla had a really unusual childhood, maybe that’s one of the reasons for her multi-million dollar net worth. Jovovich started her carrier in modeling from the early age of nine, a few years after she and her parents moved from Ukraine, which at that time belonged to the Soviet Union, to Los Angeles, California, in 1980. She even dropped out of school at the age of 12, when Gene Lemuel discovered her, and she signed a contract with Prima Modeling Agency. Milla Jovovich  was covered by magazines including Vogue, Glamour, Madmoiselle, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, and has been advertising brands including L’oreal, Christian Dior, Calvin Klein, Donna Koran, Revlon for many years.

However, exclusive looks and beauty was not the only value she had: Milla Jovovich has a great voice, a talent to write songs, design fashion and find herself in acting as well. Milla started her acting career in 1988 in the film “Two Moon Junction”, but the roles that gave this girl much more attention were in “Dazed and Confused” in 1993 and “The Fifth Element” in 1997 directed by Luc Besson, in which she worked with Bruce Willis. Of course, subsequently all five films based on “Resident Evil” made Milla Jovovich’s popularity and net worth go through the roof. The original movie was so successful that it was even turned into a video game.

Between her acting in those two movies, Milla tried the shoes of a singer and a song writer, and released her debut album – “The Divine Comedy – which was really appreciated by the audience and critics and even received positive feedback from Rolling Stone magazine’s, John McAlley; in his opinion the album was remarkable. In 1999 Milla Jovovich became a member of the band named Plastic Has Memory, and performed some gigs in New York and Las Vegas, but unfortunately not with her new band, and Milla has never released a second album.

As for her career in fashion, Milla launched her first line in 2003, and her brand was successful until 2008 when she decided to close her business because of lack of time, which is perhaps no surprise, assuming that all of her free time was taken-up by her daughter Ever Gabo Anderson, who was born in 2007.

As for other details of Milla’s personal life, aside from several well-known relationships, she has married three times, all husbands met when taking some part in films in which she was acting. She first married Shawn Andrews in 1992, which was apparently quickly annulled by her mother; ironically, he and Milla were starring in “Dazed and Confused”! The second was with the director of “The Fifth Element” – Luc Besson (1997-99), and she has been married to Paul W. S. Anderson, who worked with Jovovich on the set of “Resident Evil”, since 2009, and he is the father of her two daughters. The family is based in Los Angeles.

Milla is something of a philanthropist too, and often participates in and supports various charities including UNICEF, World Education, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and many more.
