Just in case you’re wondering if Bollywood actors can make a decent living for themselves, yes they can. As a matter of fact, some of them are exceedingly good at making money. Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar have just entered the Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid celebrities of 2016, according to Indian Express.
Shah Rukh Khan ranks 86th on the (in)famous list with thirty-three million US dollars while his celebrity colleague came in 94th, with only a couple of millions behind; 31.5 million dollars, to be precise. SRK has been the king of the Bollywood box office, according to Forbes’ records, and his success shows in his bank account. The “Fan” star is also endorsed by about a dozen Indian brands.
It doesn’t come as a surprise that Shah Rukh Khan outranked Akshay, who actually dropped considerably on the list – last year, he was 76th. Both Indian celebrities are at the very top of the financial food chain in Bollywood, at least for this year.
