Salman Khan tops the Forbes India Celebrity 100 list

Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli are among the top 5 Indian celebrity earners

The top five of Forbes India's 2017 list of 100 celebrities is relatively unchanged from previous year, despite the methodology having changed - the rankings are now based on earnings and age instead of earnings and fame.

As per the figures quoted in Forbes' list, Salman Khan's net earning this year rounds up to a staggering Rs 232.83 crore, owing to his films, TV shows, production ventures, commercials etc.

Now, Salman will earn more as his recently-released movie, Tiger Zinda Hai, is winning hearts.

The King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan and Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli took the second and the third spot respectively.

King Salman visited Russian Federation in October, during which Russian Federation signed deals to supply Saudi Arabia with weapons worth at least 2.1 billion US dollars.

The list was complied after calculating the earning of the stars within a period of October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017, and the methodology by which the list is made, so it isn't exclusively about who is more famous on the list, but specifically who earned more money in the time of one year.

The superstar Salman grabbed the top spot for the second continuous year, though the not so great box office collection of his film "Tubelight". Akshay Kumar earned Rs 98.25 crore in 2017, which helped him rank at number four in the list.

Salman Khan has topped the Forbes India Celebrity list, claiming himself as the highest paid celebrity in the country. The actor had two offerings this year-Raaes and Jab Harry Met Sejal. She is on 7th spot and has total earnings of Rs 68 crore. On the other hand, the Bollywood actors list fall down from 35 to 33, lowering their cumulative income by 13 percent from the past year. Kohli has different sources of incomes. This year he is at the sixth position defeating Priyanka Chopra, Hrithik Roshan and Ranveer Singh. Priyanka managed to earn 68 crores, at the age of 35, while Virat Kohli who, at 29 years old, is the youngest person in the top ten, made 100.
