Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar have made it to the Forbes’ list of world’s highest paidd celebs.
Bollywood stars Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan have again booked their place among the list of world’s 100 highest-paid celebs while Shah Rukh Khan — a regular on the list — failed to find a location, matching to a Forbes list. This year, the world’s highest earning super star is American boxer Floyd Mayweather. While Akshay is placed 76th on the Forbes list, Salman Khan is on the 82nd area. However, professional Shah Rukh Khan – a regular on the list – failed to find a location on the list. In 2017, he ranked 65th on the list, with revenue of $38 million.
Based on the list, 50-year-old Akshay Kumar gained $40.5 million this season. Describing the professional, the mag said, “One of Bollywood’s leading men has transitioned to socially-conscious jobs, such as ‘Bathroom,’ a humor supporting government promotions to improve sanitation, and ‘Padman,’ in regards to a guy wanting to provide inexpensive sanitary pads to rural areas. He still mints thousands from backend profits and endorsing some 20 brands, including Tata and Eveready.”
For Salman, 52, Forbes said, “This Bollywood mainstay remains to produce and star in strikes such as ‘Tiger Zinda Hai,’ cashing in on backend earnings. Coupled with a slew of endorsements from Suzuki motorcycles to Chlormint gum, he remains one of India’s top earners.”
The list has been topped by Mayweather with cash flow of $285 million with professional George Clooney rating second. Reality Television set superstar and businessperson Kylie Jenner is ranked third and sports celebrity Cristiano Ronaldo, pop superstar Katy Perry, rugby icon Roger Federer and singer Beyonce also finding a location in the list.
