Shah Rukh Khan came in at number 8 with $33 million in earnings, followed by Akshay Kumar (number 10 with $31.5 million), Salman Khan (number 14 with $28.5 million) and Amitabh Bachchan (number 18 with $20 million). The list was topped by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson who earned an estimated $64.5m. The top guys make more money than the top ladies.
