Forbes India‘s 2017 celebrity list is out, and unsurprisingly, Tiger Zinda Hai actor Salman Khan has topped the list again, positioned at number one spot beating colleagues Shah Rukh Khan (number two) and Akshay Kumar (number four). Cricketer Virat Kohli is in number three, beating Sachin Tendulkar. Their earnings are reportedly the following: Rs. 232.83 crore, Rs. 170.50 crore, Rs. 100.72 crore, Rs. 98.25 crore, and Rs. 82.50 crore respectively.


Actresses Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, who ventured towards Hollywood early this year, are ranked at number 7 and 11 respectively. A few months ago, Priyanka featured in the annual Forbes list of highly-paid actors in the world for the second time in a row.

Other celebrities in the list include Baahubali actor Prabhas positioned at number 22, Simran actress Kangana Ranaut at number 26, and Anushka Sharma positioned at number 32. Rajinikanth, who has 2.0 scheduled next year, is nowhere in the list, contrary to his number 30 position from last year.
