The list of Forbes’ highest paid celebs in the world has come out and once again Bollywood stars Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan have made their place in this list. But the shocking thing is that Shah Rukh Khan this time has failed to make his place in the list.
Shah Rukh Khan in an actor of Bollywood who always makes his place in this list but this time King Khan is totally out of this list. In this list of Forbes, Akshay Kumar got 76th rank, Salman Khan got 82nd rank, and Shah Rukh has no place. In 2017, Shah Rukh Khan got 65th rank in this list.
According to the list, Akshay Kumar earned $40.5 million this year. Forbes said the reason, “One of Bollywood’s leading men has transitioned to socially-conscious roles, such as ‘Toilet,’ a comedy supporting government campaigns to improve sanitation, and ‘Padman,’ about a guy hoping to provide inexpensive sanitary pads to rural communities. He still mints millions from backend profits and endorsing some 20 brands, including Tata and Eveready.”
While on the other hand Tiger Zinda Hai star Salman Khan is on the 82nd position this time with his earnings of 2.57 billion. For Salman Khan Forbes gave the reason, “This Bollywood mainstay continues to produce and star in hits such as ‘Tiger Zinda Hai,’ cashing in on backend profits. Coupled with a slew of endorsements from Suzuki motorcycles to Chlormint gum, he remains one of India’s top earners.”
Well, this is interesting that even after giving back to back hits and the most earning films, Salman Khan is far behind then Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar.
