Bollywood stars Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan, who always remain in demand by filmmakers, have made it to the Forbes’ list of world’s highest-paid actors 2018. While Kumar has taken the seventh spot on the list, his contemporary Khan follows him at the ninth spot.
Surprisingly, Shah Rukh Khan, who has been constantly featured on the list, is nowhere to be seen this time around. Kumar and Khan are the only two Bollywood actors to make it to the top 10 highest-paid actors list.
Topped by George Clooney, the Forbes’ world’s 10 highest-paid actors amassed a combined $748.5 million between June 1, 2017, and June 1, 2018, before fees and taxes.
According to the list, Akshay pulled in $40.5 million, while Salman Khan made $38.5 million. Interestingly, Akshay and Salman also made it to Forbes’ list of top 100 highest-paid entertainers 2018, which was announced last month. Akshay was ranked 76th on the list and Salman 82nd.
