Following the tweet, our beloved Khiladi Kumar, known for his antics, responded in a hilarious way. He posted his picture from Housefull 3 with “Beg you pardon” written over it.
Akshay Kumar is the only Indian to find a spot in the Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid actors, among 99 other international celebrities.
Securing the 33rd rank with earnings worth $65 million, Akshay has surpassed popular international figures such as Rihanna, Jackie Chan, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans and Katy Perry.
According to Forbes, the “Kesari” actor pulls in at least $5 million and up to $10 million per film. He also minted millions from endorsing around 20 brands, including Tata and Harpic.
Superstar Salman Khan, who has been a regular on the list in recent years, does not find a spot in the top 100 this year.
