September 8, 2017: Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are the only two actresses who feature in Forbes magazine’s list of top 10 Bollywood’s highest paid 2017 list, which is led by ‘Raees’ star Shah Rukh Khan who is No. 1 on the list.

Deepika Padukone ranks sixth in the Bollywood’s highest paid list with earnings of $11 million, while Priyanka Chopra shares the seventh spot with Deepika’s beau Ranveer Singh, with earnings of $10 million. Both actresses have made their Hollywood debuts.

As for Shah Rukh, he has left his contemporaries Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan behind, despite getting a lukewarm response with his last few films like “Fan”, “Dilwale” and “Jab Harry Met Sejal”. His endorsement deals and profitable productions helmed by his banner Red Chillies Entertainment, helped him make $38 million between June 1, 2016, and June 1, 2017, before fees and taxes, reports forbes.com.

Not far behind him is Salman, who is ranked second in the Bollywood’s highest paid list with earnings of $37 million in the last one year.

Salman gained profits from the success of “Sultan” and “retains a slew of advertisements and a not-for-profit line of clothing and jewelry that benefits his Being Human Foundation”.

The Khans are followed by National Award winner Akshay, whose golden run at the Indian box office doesn’t seem to stop anytime soon.

The “Khiladi” star Akshay Kumar is listed at the third position in the Bollywood’s highest paid list with earnings of $35.5 million, with his hit films like “Rustom”, “Jolly LLB 2”, “Naam Shabana” and “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha”.

Shah Rukh, Salman, and Akshay are also included in Forbes magazine’s World’s Highest Paid Actors 2017 list and ranked at eighth, ninth and 10th position respectively.

With the unprecedented success of “Dangal”, Aamir is ranked fourth in the list with collections of $12.5 million.

Actor Hrithik Roshan has rounded off the top five with earnings of $11.5 million. Hrithik’s 2016 film “Mohenjo Daro” bombed at the box office, however, the actor bounced back with “Kaabil” in 2017.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan ($9 million) and actor Ranbir Kapoor ($8.5 million) have been ranked ninth and 10th in the Bollywood’s highest paid list, reports forbes.com.

Earnings estimates are based on data from Box Office India, Box Office Mojo, and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders.

Together, Bollywood’s 10 highest paid actors banked a cumulative $183 million between June 1, 2016, and June 1, 2017. (IANS)

Akshay Kumar shares a close bond with John Abraham but he does not seem to be happy with his film “Gold” and the latter’s forthcoming movie “Satyameva Jayate” releasing on the same date.

Akshay and John have together worked in “Garam Masala”, “Desi Boyz” and “Housefull 2′ but now, “Gold” and “Satyameva Jayate” is going to clash against each other on Independence Day (August 15).

Talking about the clash, John had said: “Akshay is my good friend. We get along really well and we wish best for each other… to avoid clash between the two films is T-Series and Excel Entertainment’s responsibility.”

Akshay sarcastically expressed his displeasure over the issue by taking a jibe at John’s statement.

“It is true that he is my friend… and I have learned that anyone can release their film with other actor’s film so, next time, I will also do the same (laughs).

“We can release our film together on any occasion, be it Eid, Diwali or Christmas as we all are friends” said Akshay while interacting with the media during the music launch of “Gold” along with his co-actors Mouni Roy, Amit Sadh, Vineet Kumar Singh, Sunny Kaushal, Kunal Kapoor and director Reema Kagti on Friday here.

A historical sports drama, inspired by India’s first Olympic gold medal, “Gold” traces the “golden era” of Indian hockey through the journey of Tapan Das, a young assistant manager in 1936, who dreams of playing for an independent nation.
