Indian actors have enormous fan followings and are revered almost like gods. They earn substantial incomes from movies, endorsements, profit sharing, and various other sources. According to reports from Siasat, Shah Rukh Khan tops the list as the richest actor in India with a net worth of $735 million.
Surprisingly, following SRK, it’s not Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, or Akshay Kumar in the second or third positions. Hrithik Roshan claims the second spot with a net worth of $410 million, followed by Amitabh Bachchan in the third position with $375 million. The list continues with Salman in the fourth position at $355 million and Akshay slightly below at $325 million.
Shah Rukh Khan had previously shared how he established his life in Mumbai after moving from Delhi. He briefly mentioned purchasing Mannat, which is situated in the heart of the city. “We didn’t have too much money, and as soon as we mustered up some money, we said we want to buy this bungalow. And it was way beyond our means. We managed to buy it, which was one thing, and then we had to rebuild it, because it was quite dilapidated. And then we didn’t have money to furnish it. Of course, we called a designer. The lunch that he served us telling us how he’ll design the house was way more than the salary I used to earn in a month,” he shared at the launch of Gauri’s new coffee table book, My Life in Design.
Regarding Hrithik Roshan, he reportedly charges a fee of Rs 75 to 100 crore for a film. He also earns significantly from brand endorsements, reportedly charging Rs 10 to 12 crore as an endorsement fee. Additionally, he receives Rs 4 to Rs 5 crore for a single promotional post on social media.
