Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar have made their way to Forbes list of top paid celebrities for 2017.

The list shows the top hundred highest paid celebrities in film, music, literature and sports, from all over the world and Bollywood makes its entry to the list with Shah Rukh Khan with $38 million.

From the Asian entertainers, Jackie Chan was the first on this year's list at number 39, followed by Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and then Akshay Kumar at number 65, 71 and 80 respectively.

Forbes releases a list of the highest paid celebrities each year. Rapper turned producer Diddy topped 2017's list followed by singer Beyonce and then author J.K. Rowling. The list also includes recently reunited rock band Guns N' Roses and athlete Christiano Ronaldo.

Here's hoping Pakistanis makes it on the list next year.

@ripan The list is of world celebrities - so Pakistan obviously does not make the cut Why would they make a list of Pakistani actors who are neither well paid nor well known

Bollywood and Lollywood should team up and make the movie industry biggest in the world.

@Limca Man no thank you. Bollywood can get there all by itself.
