Reason Behind Film Stars Occupying Top Positions in India and China

India is a place quite popular for films compared to any other profession. The film stars have a massive reputation among the public. Even the sports personalities secure the subsequent place in the country. People often love, praise and appreciate celebs across the countries like India and China. It is quite common for celebrities receiving accolades from the public globally. But, film stars have a special place in India. On the other hand, the singers, musicians, and sports personalities dominate the list of powerful celebs. 

In this analysis, we consider the international business magazine Forbes' list of top 100 celebs in the US and in India. In India, half of the list from the top 100 is filled by the film actors like Salmaan Khan, Alia Bhatt and others. Only 21 percent of the list has a good number of sportspeople mostly the cricketers. Apart from the cricketers, only 6 sports personalities secured the place in the list. In the list, we can witness the names of 11 Indian singers and musicians.

This is not the occurrence for the names of celebs in the US. In the list, we can witness only 10 US actors. The remaining list is filled with sports personalities, singers, TV celebs, and musicians. India has an immense history in films since 1913. On the other hand, China has started its entry into films a little taking place after. However, it has more than 60000 screens all over the world. As per the reports, Chinese people watch a minimum of 1 to 3 films a month.

Despite India has low screen penetration, it has a total of 9530 screens across the nation. We consider Television has been showing a massive impact on the Indian film stars. On the other hand, a person from the USA visits a film only 4 to 5 times a year. The Chinese actors have a massive fan following. On the other hand, singers such as Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and sports personalities also have a massive reputation in the US. We hope the sports personalities [apart from cricketers], singers and musicians from India and China will receive enough reputation by securing worthy positions in the top 100 list.
