After the success of their films, the actresses’ pay keeps hiking. The highest-paid Chinese actress has been in the industry for almost two decades and is currently Asia's highest tax-paying actress. However, the actress has also been accused of tax evasion. Here’s all that is known about her, along with the countdown of other high-paid actresses in Asia.

Chinese actress, Fan Bingbing is the richest actress in Asia.

Fan Bingbing is currently Asia's highest tax-paying actress, but in 2018, the actress suffered a major backlash due to tax evasion.

Subsequently, Bingbing disappeared from the public eye for the next three months, only to return with an apology, which she uploaded on her social media. Bingbing was fined around INR 1000 crore as a penalty for tax evasion, which is higher than her net worth.
