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.
He also cashes in on endorsement deals for dozens of brands most Americans have likely never heard of,” Forbes said.
Akshay Kumar, with $31.5 million worth of earnings, is ranked No. 94.
American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is the top ranking celebrity on the list, earning an estimated $170 million with One Direction taking the second spot, with earnings of $110 million.
