Bollywood Superstars Akshay Khan and Salman Khan have made it again to the world’s 100 highest-paid celebs according to a Forbes list. The top five celebrities on the 2018 list are by boxer Floyd Mayweather, followed by actor George Clooney, Kylie Jenner, Judy Sheindlin, Dwayne Johnson respectively. The list that is based on the money the actors made from June 2017-2018, Akshay is ranked 76th whereas Salman is on the 82nd spot.

According to the magazine, the 50-year-old Akshay earned $40.5 million and said, “One of Bollywood’s leading men 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.”
