Overall, the top earning celebrities were Kylie Jenner and Kanye West, who brought in $590 million and $170 million, respectively.

Talking about Akshay Kumar, Forbes further wrote: "A bankable movie star, he commands up to $13 million upfront for films like the upcoming "Bachchan Pandey" and "Bell Bottom".

The JoBros' long-awaited comeback paid major dividends as well, earning the boys more than $1.5 million on each stop of the Happiness Begins Tour.

Akshay, however, slipped many spots from last year's 33rd rank with earnings of $65 million (Rs. 491 crore). But I'm a human being, and when I made my first, I thought, why can't I make 100 crores.

"To be honest, there was no stopping me", said Akshay Kumar, after the list was announced. He now has several films coming up, including horror comedy Laxmmi Bomb, period drama Prithviraj, Rohit Shetty's cop film Sooryavanshi, and Aanand L Rai's romantic movie Atrangi Re.
