Forbes has released its list of the world’s highest paid celebrities and there’s no surprise that it features two of Bollywood’s biggest stars.

Like every year, megastar Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar are among the world’s 100 highest paid celebrities.

 

Shah Rukh, 50, with earnings of $33 million last year, ranks 86th on the list. The Hindi film actor, producer and television personality features on the list due to the box office success of his film Dilwale — which was otherwise heavily bashed by critics.
