Bollywood's Richest Woman....ASH? KAREENA? or PREETY?......

Can you guess who Bollywood's richest babe is? Kareena Kapoor? Aishwarya Rai Bachchan? Think again!
Kareena Kapoor may the official brand ambassador for Sony Ericsson, Airtel and Head and Shoulders, and she may have starred in box-office hits like "3 Idiots" and "Jab We Met," but she is still not the richest girl in Bollywood according to the Times of India.

So could it be Aishwarya Rai Bachchan? The former Miss World has been in the industry for ages and she has starred in Bollywood movies like "Devdas" and "Guru," along with Hollywood fun flick "The Pink Panther 2." The B-town beauty also cashes in from endorsements of brands like L'Oreal and Longines Swiss luxury watches. She is also married to one of Bollywood's popular actors, Abhishek Bachchan. So is Ash B-town's richest woman? No, guess again!

The richest babe in B-town is Preity Zinta! You didn't see that one coming did you? According to the Times of India, Preity Zinta, who is the co-owner of an IPL team and is the legal heir to Shandar Amrohi's Kamalistan Studios, is worth a lot of money. Her IPL stakes alone are worth around $90 million. The business woman and actress has starred in movies like "Jhoom Barabar Jhoom" and "Main Aur Mrs Khanna."

Preity broke into show business after being featured in the Cadbury Perk's commercial. She went on to become the Liril girl and starred in various other ads. She broke into the film industry in 1997. She had a role in the film "Tara Rum Pum Pum." The film was actually cancelled and never released but it still jumpstarted Zinta'a film career.
In 1998, her acting breakthrough came in the film "Dil Se." That same year she starred in "Soldier" where she won the Filmfare Best Debut Award.
Preity Zinta may be a great actress but that is not all she is known for. She wrote about women's issues for the BBC News Online. She is also heavily involved in multiple causes and charities, such as AIDS awareness, clean up drives in Mumbai, and human trafficking.

But it's clear that she doesn't earn such a high living from her films, as there are more popular actresses out there. But her business ventures seem to be doing great!
So Kareena Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan step aside, Preity Zinta is the reigning rich girl in Bollywood!
