The much-anticipated list of World's highest paid actors and actresses by Forbes is finally out. While Hollywood stars such as Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel may be ruling the charts, Bollywood stars have also made spot among the top 10.

With their massive fan following and blockbuster films earning millions, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar have made it to Rank 8, 9 and 10 respectively on the Forbes' list.

King Khan has beaten Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar in the race of Bollywood's highest paid actor with his earnings of $38 million followed by Salman's $37 million and Akshay's $35.5 million of annual income.

Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan didn't even make a spot in the list despite delivering last year's biggest hit. Actresses, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra who made their Hollywood debut this year were nowhere to be seen as well.

Apparently, it not the films but the brand endorsements which have earned the celebrities more.

A huge gap between the incomes of actors and actresses was also noted. World's highest paid actress, Emma Stones only earned $26 million as compared to her male counterpart, Mark Wahlberg who has $68 million to his name.
