After making their way to the list of world’s highest-paid celebrities list released by Forbes magazine in 2016, Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar have featured on the list again and have been joined by Salman Khan this year.

SRK has jumped from 86th in the rankings last time to 65th this year, with earnings of $38 million while Akshay, who was 94th last time, is ranked 80th with $35.5 million earnings, according to the list released by the magazine on Monday.

Forbes the World’s Highest Paid Celebrities 2017; Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar in Top 100.

Salman made an entry in the list; ranked 71st with earnings of $37 million. Unlike last year, Amitabh Bachchan has not made to the list.

Shah Rukh makes the list despite not having a great year at the box office by his standards, with ‘Fan’ flopping at the box office and ‘Dear Zindagi’ being just a cameo appearance.Akshay Kumar had a brilliant 2016, with all of his films, ‘Rustom’, ‘Airlift’ and ‘Housefull 3’ reaching the 100-crore mark at the box office.Salman’s only release, ‘Sultan’ was the second highest grossing film of the year after ‘Dangal.’

Previously, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli was also a part of the magazine’s world’s highest-paid athletes, ranked 89th with earnings of $22 million.

American rapper Sean Diddy Combs topped the list after making a whopping $130 million in 2016 owing to his partnership with Diageo’s Ciroc vodka. Diddy claiming the top spot is the biggest shocker as last year he was on the 22nd spot.
