Fans of King Khan are in an emotional space as their Baadshah has become the Highest Paid Indian Actor, according to Forbes 100's list! Shah Rukh Khan's rank in the top 100 list of Forbes has jumped up to 65th position from the 86th position he held last year. Now that's a commendable achievement that certainly deserves a salute. And that's exactly what fans have been doing, ever since the news flashed. SRK fans on Twitter are currently in an emotional state as they are bowing down to their King. As you might know, he has beaten his contemporaries Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar in the race of highest paid actors. Fans have been talking about it on social media and claiming that this is the reason why Shah Rukh is called the King.
Not to forget how Forbes mentioned the actor as a Bollywood icon while calling Salman and Akshay, Hindi film actors. A lot of fans have even highlighted that and shared it across the social media platforms. One fanatic even said something quite sentimental. His tweet goes like this, "25 Years ago SHAH RUKH KHAN just a name, Now it's an EMOTION" While fans have expressed their happiness with Shah Rukh's achievement, there are people who have also spoken about Salman and Akshay. One such person on Twitter complimented all three of them as he said, "Congrats to the 3 Pyramids of Bollywood, 1. SRK @iamsrk 2. SALMAN @BeingSalmanKhan 3.

As you might have noticed, many have referred to his career graph and success to his Miyan Bhai avatar in Raees. Well, we can totally relate to that. On the Forbes list, Khan stands on the 65th position along with Jennifer Lopez and The Chainsmokers. The Forbes list always presents a compiled list of celebs and all their earnings, including income from brand endorsements. Perhaps that's what has given Shah Rukh a leverage here, as he has quite a lot of brands in his kitty. In fact, that could be the reason why Aamir Khan is nowhere to be found on this list. Salman and Akshay are on the 71st and 80th position, respectively.
