Ten Highest Paid Actors In The World
This is a male-dominated film industry with the actors getting a bigger share in the pie. However, one should also admit that the actors carry the films on their shoulders. They are the ones who bring in the audiences to the cinema theaters. Of course, they can emote as well.
You have some of the finest actors in this list. Naturally, this is a Hollywood dominated list for the simple reason that the films made in Hollywood are on a different league altogether. However, the Indian film industry, Bollywood has started to make its presence felt with two nominees in the Top 10 list, one of whom is an all-time legend.
We shall look at the top 10 highest paid actors 2018 in the industry. This list can include the Top 10 alone. Hence, some of the finest actors such as Mark Wahlberg might have just missed the bus. However, one must admit that the Top 10 highest paid actors are equally highly popular as well at the same time.
10. Shahrukh Khan: $33 million
We have the Badshah of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan at No. 10 in this list. One of the most romantic heroes to have ever graced the silver screen, Shahrukh Khan can make the women swoon with a mere wink. One of the few Indian actors who can perform the role of the villain with an equal degree of comfort, Shahrukh Khan is a known face all over the world because of the presence of the Indian diaspora. His films always do well in the US as well. A spate of endorsements has pushed up his earnings to $33 million.
09. Amitabh Bachchan: $33.5 million
If the No. 10 spot belongs to the Badshah, the No. 9 goes to the Big B, Amitabh Bachchan. On the film scene since 1969, Amitabh Bachchan is on the verge of a half-century in the film industry. The greatest aspect of his innings is that he has ruled the Indian cinema scene since the 1970s until date. Even today, he can give the young upstarts a run for their money. A tall actor, he towers over everyone in the list. Bit for the fact that the Indian films do not have much of an audience in Hollywood, he would have topped the list quite easily. He was on the verge of bankruptcy at one time, but the quiz show, the Indian version of ‘Who wants to be a millionaire” (Kaun Banega Crorepati) saved him the blushes. With earnings in the range of $33.5 million, he is No. 9 on this list.
