SRK Fails To Make It To Forbes 2018 Highest Paid Celebs List, Salman and Akshay Find A Spot

According to the Forbes list, Bollywood superstars Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan have made an entry in the top 100 highest paid celeb list. However, it was quite shocking to see that Bollywood’s Badshah Shah Rukh Khan failed to find a spot in the list this year.

2018’s world’s highest earning celebrity is American boxer Floyd Mayweather. On the other hand, Akshay and Salman gained 76th and 82nd spot in the list respectively.

Shah Rukh Khan who failed to make it to the top 100 list had ranked on 65th spot in the year 2017 with earnings of $38 million.

As per the list, the Khiladi Kumar of Bollywood earned $40.5 million this year. Describing the superstar, the magazine said, “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.”

As for Salman, the magazine said, “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.”

This year’s list has Mayweather in the top with earnings of $285 million and actor George Clooney on the second spot. Reality TV star and businessperson Kylie Jenner has acquired third position while, football sensation Cristiano Ronaldo, pop star Katy Perry, tennis star Roger Federer and singer Beyonce also found their place in this year’s list.

Forbes said the world’s 100 top-earning entertainers pulled in a combined $6.3 billion pretax over the past 12 months, up 22% from last year and 11 superstars crossed the $100 million threshold, more than double the number from the last two years combined.
