The much awaited Forbes’ list of highest paid actors in the world is out now, and it’s a good news for Bollywood fans. While Mark Wahlberg has topped the list this year, three Indian actors find place in the top 10 - Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan & Akshay Kumar.
According to Forbes, while SRK earned $38 million (Rs 243.50 cr), Salman made $37 million (Rs 237 cr) and Akshay took home $35.5 million (Rs 227.5 cr).
These three actors were expected to be in the list as they are the highest earners in the world’s biggest film industry in terms of numbers of films produced every year. However, Aamir Khan’s absence from the list is surprising whose Dangal has broken the worldwide collection records for any Indian film. It collected over Rs 2000 cr ($312 million) in China alone.
The top 10 actors banked a cumulative $488.5 million - nearly three times the $172.5 million combined total of the 10 top-earning women. All the data is from between June 1, 2016, and June 1, 2017, before fees and taxes.
