Akshay Kumar beats Salman Khan in world's 100 highest-paid list; you won't believe who is missing
Forbes has just released a list of world’s 100 highest-paid entertainers for 2018. Interestingly, two Indian celebrities, both Bollywood actors, have made it to the list. Actors Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan are among top 100 highest-paid entertainers in the world, according to Forbes. But what is astonishing is the absence of some top personalities.
According to Forbes, 50-year old Akshay has earnings of $40.5 million. Describing Akshay, Forbes said “one of Bollywood’s leading men has transitioned to socially-conscious roles,” citing his films such as Toilet: Ek Prem Katha that focussed on government campaigns to improve sanitation, and Padman. He also mints millions from profits and by endorsing about 20 brands. (Image source: Reuters)
