In a shocking turn of events, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan does not feature in the list of World’s Highest Paid Actors 2018 for the first time ever. The list which was topped George Clooney saw Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan at the seventh and ninth positions. The two Bollywood actors also made it to the list of the Top 100 highest paid entertainers released earlier this year. 

According to various media reports, while Akshay Kumar earned 40.5 million dollars, Salman earned 38.5 million dollars. The list called Akshay Kumar one of the leading men in Bollywood who has transitioned to socially-conscious roles, such as Toilet and Padman and still mints millions from backend profits and endorsing some 20 brands, including Tata and Eveready. For Bollywood star Salman Khan, the list call him a film industry mainstay who has managed to produce hits while cashing in on backend profits. 

While Bollywood mainly depended on their films, George Clooney is on the list because of his latest business ventures. Dwayne Johnson is on the list for his films Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. With the success of Avengers: Infinity War, film stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans also featured on the list.
