The Forbes list of Top 10 richest Hindi film actors is out. While the list has all the big names one would expect from tinsel town, a notable feature is that it has only two female actors’ names in it. Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra have managed to sneak into the top 10 list. 

Padukone has beaten Chopra by one position. Padukone's yearly earnings of $11 million (Rs70.44 crore approximately) has helped her secure the sixth position. Chopra, on the other hand, has tied the seventh spot with actor Ranveer Singh. The yearly income of both stars is $10 million, which is approximately Rs64.02 crore. 

Shah Rukh Khan has secured the top position, which doesn’t come as a surprise with a yearly income of $38 million (Rs243 crore approximately). The actor is not having the best of times. His highly anticipated Jab Harry Met Sejal bombed at the box office. But that hasn’t stopped him from taking the numero uno position. 

Salman Khan is the second in the list and his earnings are a million dollars less than Shah Rukh's (Rs236 crore approximately). The failure of his last film Tubelight has not affected him, too. Akshay Kumar, who is having a golden run, is on the third position with $35.5 million (Rs227 crore approximately). 

Surprisingly, Aamir Khan, the man with the impeccable record, is on the fourth position with only $12.5 million (Rs80 crore approximately). Hrithik Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor have grabbed fifth, ninth and tenth positions, respectively.
