While Akshay was ranked 76th on the list, the Bharat star secured the 82nd spot. Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, who have made to the list in the past, have fallen off this time.

The list mentioned Akshay as “one of Bollywood’s leading men” who has “transitioned to socially-conscious roles, such as Toilet, a comedy supporting government campaigns to improve sanitation, and Padman, about a guy hoping to provide inexpensive sanitary pads to rural communities. He still mints millions from backend profits and endorsing some 20 brands, including Tata and Eveready.”

For Salman, Forbes mentioned, “This Bollywood mainstay continues to produce and star in hits such as Tiger Zinda Hai, cashing in on backend profits. Coupled with a slew of endorsements from Suzuki motorcycles to Chlormint gum, he remains one of India’s top earners.”
