Shah Rukh, Salman, Akshay make it to the world's 10 highest paid actors!
LOS ANGELES: Three Bollywood actors made their way to the world's 10 highest paid actors list, released by Forbes on Tuesday.

The actors include Bollywood's 'King Khan' Shah Rukh Khan, 'Dabangg Khan' Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar with an estimated income of $38 million, $37 million and $35.5 million allotted to them respectively.

Rapper-turned-actor Mark Wahlberg was named the world's highest-paid actor, with earnings of an estimated $68 million before taxes over the past 12 months - thanks to cash inflow from movies such as Transformers: The Last Knight and comedy sequel Daddy's Home 2, due to be out in November.

"The former may have scored a miserable 15 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes and the lowest gross of the franchise to date, but Wahlberg need not worry – fixed compensation means he benefits even when movies don't do well," said Forbes.

Dwayne Johnson, who bagged the number one spot in 2016, jumped down to second place with $65 million, after starring in action-comedy Baywatch and HBO comedy Ballers.

Vin Diesel, who appears as co-star with Johnson in the Fast and Furious franchise, came in on third on the men's list with $54.5 million accredited to his name, just one place ahead of comedy actor Adam Sandler who made $50.5 million through a major deal with Netflix that allows him to produce his own movies.

Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan, still hugely popular in China, rounds out the top five with $49.5 million over the last 12 months.

Robert Downey Jr and Tom Cruise were amongst the remaining actors who rounded out the top ten.
