After the list of highest paid actors and actresses in the world, Forbes has released the list of highest paid Bollywood actors and actresses 2017.

Shah Rukh Khan topped the list, earning $38 million in the past year, thanks to his movie Raees and several brand endorsements. He is followed by Salman Khan, who missed the top spot by $1 million. He raked in $37 million even as his film Tubelight didn’t do very well at the box office. His movie ‘Sultan’ was second highest grosser of 2016.

Akshay Kumar is third on the list with a total earning of $35.5 million. Akshay had a string of good films in this period. His films Airlift, Rustom, Jolly LLB and Housefull 3 contributed towards his earnings.

The three actors also made it to the top 30 list of highest paid actors and actresses in the world.

Only two women made it to the top 10 list though. Deepika Padukone at #6 made a total of $11 million mostly through her endorsements and the upfront fee for her upcoming film, Padmavati.

Priyanka Chopra at #7 earned a million less than Deepika. Priyanka’s earnings from ABC’s Quantico and Baywatch reboot, which failed to make a big mark at the box office, helped her reach the total earnings of $10 million.

Earnings estimates are tracked from June 1, 2016 to June 1, 2017 and based on data from Box Office India, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders.
