Nagini Shree |Jul 11, 2019

Actor Akshay Kumar is the only face from Bollywood to secure a position on Highest-Paid Celebrities list, leaving behind many global stars including Rihanna, Jackie Chan, Bradley Cooper, and many others.

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has added another feather to his hat. The actor has made his way to World's Highest-Paid Entertainers' list for 2019 released by Forbes magazine. And, he is the only Indian to book himself a place in the list!

Akshay takes the 33rd spot with the earnings of $65 million beating many Hollywood biggies like Jackie Chan, Rihanna, Bradley Cooper, Scarlett Johansson and many more.

Singer Taylor Swift, on the other hand, strikes all with her earnings of $185 million followed by self-made billionaire Kylie Jenner with $170 million. Jenner also made headlines earlier this year when Forbes said she was on track to become the world's youngest "self-made" billionaire.

Following right behind the ladies are Kanye West, Lionel Messi and Ed Sheeran at third, fourth and fifth spot respectively. BTS is the only Korean Artist taking the no. 43 spot this year, making their debut on the list.

However, Salman Khan, who is a regular on the list, has failed to find a spot for himself this time. Last year, while Akshay was ranked 76th on the Forbes list of the World's Highest Paid Celebrities 2018, Salman was on the 82nd spot.

He will also be seen in war movie Kesari directed by Anurag Singh. The film will also feature Parineeti Chopra playing who will be seen playing his love interest.
