Once again Salman Khan has topped the list of Forbes India Celebrity 100. The period under consideration is October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018. Though he retired from the game in 2013, his earnings stood at 80 crore this year compared to the average of 73.12 crore over the past seven years. The actor has taken the top spot for the third time in a row.

This year, only 18 females, including Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma, Taapsee Pannu, Nayantara and ace shuttler PV Sindhu have made it to the list of Forbes India Celebrity 100. His earnings can be traced back to his two releases - Race 3 and Tiger Zinda Hai - apart from his television appearances and multiple brand endorsements. Bumrah recorded earnings of Rs 16.42 crore, while Pandey earned Rs 13.08 crore in the year.

Aamir Khan, Bollywood Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Ranveer Singh, Sachin Tendulkar and Ajay Devgn follow next in the top 10 bracket.

Forbes India recently announced the richest celebrity from India in which Salman Khan tops the list with a net income of 253 crores followed by Virat Kohli with net income of 228 crore.

Gautam Gambhir announces retirement: Is a political innings in the offing?
Gambhir's decision comes after his IPL franchise Delhi Daredevils parted ways with him ahead of the IPL auction later this month. I was searching for my confidence in that deep, dark pit but I could only lay my hands on the same sharp, disturbing noise.

Virat Kohli has been in top form on the cricket field in 2018 and that success has resulted in him becoming the richest sportsperson in Forbes India's list. Previous year the Chennai Express actor was at the second position with earnings of ₹170.5 crores.

15 celebrities from South Indian Cinema also made it to the list.

Indian cricket team all-rounder Hardik Pandya, with earnings to the tune of Rs 28.46 crore, was the highest gainer (in percentage terms), with his annual earnings rising almost nine times. Importantly, Mammootty is the only Malayalam actor who has found a place in the Top 100 list.

Bollywood Khiladi Akshay Kumar is at number 3 with Rs 185 crore total earnings while actress Deepika Padukone bags the number 4 slot with Rs 112.8 crore earnings.
