The Forbes India list of celebrities is out and Salman Khan has made it successfully to be on the top, followed by our favourite actor Shah Rukh Khan. But what has astonished most of us here is that superstar Rajinikanth is nowhere on the top 10 celebrities list.
Aamir Khan Dangal is successfully closing 2016 with an almighty bang, but it is his colleague Salman khan who has been placed on the number one position of the Forbes celebrity list. Thanks to his blockbuster film Sultan. Shahrukh khan is at the second place. Between Shahrukh and Salman khan the top position was occupied by a khan for the past few years.
Aamir Khan whose Dangal released out last year has dropped down from the parameters of the list from the top 10 to the 14th Position. Heart-warmingly actresses like Deepika and Priyanka the two women have successfully put india on the showbiz map this year by standing on the 6th and 8th position of the celebrity list. Above the two are Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan followed by Akshay Kumar in the fourth Position. The other two position are taken by the famous cricketers Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and the last but not the least Sachin Tendulkar on the 7th Position.
Ok now comes the question where is Rajinikanth. This might lead you to a shock like it did to us, actor Rajinikanth is a way down the list on the 30th Position. These are the rankings that have been calculated on the basis of earnings and fame gained by them. And it seems that Rajinikanth is out ranked on both the counts when compared to the several other stars. His earnings are reported to be around 35 crore and fame wise is ranked on the 53rd position.
So if you like all of us are wondering who has been placed above Rajinikanth then here are the names for you. It is none other than Kapil Sharma, Ranveer Singh, and A.R Rahman on the 11, 12th and 13th position, followed by Arijit Singh, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Sonam Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Shahid Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Shikhar Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Katrina Kaif, Suresh Raina, R Ashwin, Shreya Ghoshal and Sania Mirza.
Sounds to be crazy right. Yes we know. Salman and Shah Rukh’s are believed to be having an earnings of more than 200 crore and they are in the #2 and #3 in position in terms of fame. So who’s among the above mentioned is the most famous? Virat Kohli. Salman, Shah Rukh, Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar have successfully made it to the Forbes’ list of 20 highest paid actors in the world this year. Whereas Deepika Padukone is ranked on the 10th equivalent list of female stars and Priyanka Chopra was in eighth place on the list of highest paid TV actresses.
