If you hate truth, you have come to the wrong place.
There is a tough tussle on this one between three actresses namely Deepika, Kangna and Priyanka Chopra. I ll try and present a detailed analysis of the three.
Deepika Padukone: With 2 back to back successful years, she is now believed to be charging 15cr/ movie, atleast for her next movie. But this figure will not be consistent considering the fact she has not done any woman centric movie yet and it is not known whether she can carry a movie on her own. Though she is also venturing into hollywood following the footsteps of peecee.
Kangna Ranaut: With the success of Queen and TWMR she has charged 11 cr for her next venture, which she may increase post success of her next movie becoz she is believed to carry movies on her shoulders and is a terrific actress.
Priyanka Chopra: After doing Mary Kom, she has appeared in only multistarer movies with her limited scenes like bajirao mastani and dil dhadkne do, which requires her to give less time so that she can accomodate her hollywood movie baywatch and tv series quantico too. She charges 9cr/movie for these films. But for gangajal(her next solo venture) it is believed that she ll be sharing the profits as well. Also to take note, she gave little time to Prakash Jha for gangajal. After signing a hollywood movie baywatch with a significant role, and being appointed as Incredible India ambassador, post the success of quantico she may start to charge somwhere more than 15 cr soon. She is currently in consideration to play Kalpna Chawla in her biopic and as noone else can carry that role except for her, she may charge high. She has opened her own production house and her first venture will be Madam ji, starring herself, this is the first for any heroine in India(resulting in all profits to be hers like sharukh khan).
1. Kangana Ranaut – 10-11 Crores In last few years Kangana Ranaut has come out as one of the best actress of current generation. She is doing movie where she gets lead role and this helped her to raise her per film salary.

3. Deepika Padukone 8-9 Crore Rs. Considered as one of the finest young talents of Bollywood which is the reason she gets paid around 8-9 Crore Rs for every film. Though she drops her asking salary for small budget films whose story she likes.
4. Priyanka Chopra 8-9 Crore Rs. Priyanka Chopra is is third highest paid Bollywood Actress. She gets 8-9 Crores for every Hindi film. She is also making her mark in Bollywood but through her singing style.
5. Vidya Balan 6-7 Crore Rs One of the biggest Heroine of Hindi Film Industry. Vidya Balan is usually the first choice of producers making Actress centric movie. She gets around 6-7 Crore for every movie.
6. Katrina Kaif 6-7 Crore Rs Next in the list of Highest paid Bollywood Actress is Katrina Kaif who gets 6-7 Crore for every film. Her slightly less fee per movie helps her get more film than any other actress.

Well, the answer to your question is pretty erratic. This is because actresses start charging high for their forthcoming films if once their previous film turns out to be a hit.

Here are the top 7 as of the beginning of 2016:
Kangana Ranaut is currently the highest paid actress at 10-22 crores per film.
Kareena Kapoor is right behind her (there's a reason they call her the Queen of Bollywood) at 9-10 crores per film
Deepika Padukone (no one should be surprised at that one) is next with 8-9 crore, but I'm guessing that will go up after the year she just had!
Priyanka Chopra is tied with Deepika at 8-9 crore per picture
Vidya Balan is fourth with 6-7 crore per movie
Katrina Kaif is about even with Vidya at 6-7
Anushka Sharma is next with 5-6 crore per picture
It's very difficult to arrive at accurate figures of remuneration for Bollywood actors and actresses as the process of payment is not very transparent. Coupled with profit sharing (usually by the top most Bollywood male actors) it makes arriving at accurate figures difficult. However, based on some realistic guesstimate:
