Akshay Kumar Is the Only Indian On Forbes 2020 List Of 100 Highest-Paid Celebs

Akshay Kumar is known to bring social issues in the limelight and makes sure to do justice to the issue as well. From delivering back-to-back hits last year with films like Kesari, Mission Mangal, Housefull 4, and Good Newwz, Akshay Kumar emerged as the highest-paid celebs in the world of Forbes 2020. He has made India proud by being the only Indian to have his name on this list. The actor lands at No. 52 on this year’s Celebrity 100 with pretax earnings of $48 million and has earned more renowned Hollywood stars like Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.

“I just wanted to earn around 1 crore rupees, that’s it. 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”, he shares.

As per Forbes, Akshay’s collaboration with Amazon Prime Video is one of the major reasons for him to be in the list of highest-paid celebrities this year. While locked down at home amidst the pandemic, we hear that Akshay Kumar is keeping himself busy by binge-watching TV shows and spending time with his family. The actor feels one has to change with time, “From screenplays and scripts to technology and the way of shooting and the audience. The zeros in my check have changed. Everything has changed.”
