So who are the top 10 richest celebrities in the country? Many people, within and outside India, think Bollywood actors and actresses are the richest celebrities in the country. But this can’t be farther from the truth. While there is no doubt about the fact that Bollywood actors and actresses are very rich, there are actually many other rich celebrities from other industries.
In this content, we’d be discussing the top 10 wealthiest celebrities in India.
Top 10 Richest Celebrities In India 2020
1. Virat Kohli
The richest of all celebrities in India is not who you might be expecting. While Salman Khan has ranked as the richest celebrity in the country, he is currently not the richest. The richest man in the country happens to be Virat Kohli. And for those who don’t know who this guy is, the man happens to be a cricketer. In other words, he plays the game of cricket. Virat Kohli is hands-down one of the best cricket players in the country. And this is what has helped him achieve so much success.
2. Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar ranks as the second-richest celebrity in the country. This man not only happens to be an Indian citizen, but he also happens to be a Canadian citizen. And for those who know this man, you’d have no hard time believing he’s really one of the richest in the country. There are so many incredible films he has featured in. And as you would expect, he has received a countless number of local and international awards.
3. Salman Khan
Hardly would you find a Bollywood fan who doesn’t love Salman Khan. The 54-year-old is hands-down one of the best actors to have ever lived. He has fans all over the world. Salman Khan furthermore ranks as one of those people who have once been named the richest in the country. But despite the fact that he has dropped to the third position, this doesn’t mean his wealth can now be underestimated.
4. Amitabh Bachchan
The fourth person on this list is also from Bollywood. And I guess most of you wouldn’t be surprised to find this out. Amitabh Bachchan has been in the movie industry since the 1970s. As of the time of writing this content, he is stated to be about 77 years of age. And we don’t see him dropping below the fourth position.
5. MS Dhoni
While the second, third, and fourth people on this list may be from the Bollywood industry, the fifth person isn’t. MS Dhoni who happens to be the fifth-richest man in the country is a cricketer. The 38-year-old may be popularly known as MS Dhoni, but his full name is Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Mahendra Singh Dhoni has participated in a lot of local and international competitions. And whenever he’s in a game, you can easily tell. This man has been playing the game since the 1990s.
6. Ranveer Singh
Ranveer Singh is another man you can’t afford to leave out of an article like this one. This man has featured in a lot of great Bollywood movies. But not only that, but he also happens to be the recipient of many important awards.
Movies he has featured in, include Band Baaja Baaraat, Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, Bombay Talkies, Lootera, Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, Gunday, Finding Fanny, Kill Dil, Hey Bro, Dil Dhadakne Do, Bajirao Mastani, Befikre, Padmaavat, Teefa in Trouble, Simmba, Gully Boy, 83, Sooryavanshi, and Jayeshbhai Jordaar.
7. Shah Rukh Khan
Shah Rukh Khan rank as the seventh richest celebrity in India. He is also an actor with a wealth you can’t ignore. This man is about 54 years of age. And he has achieved success many Indian actors would never achieve in their lifetime. Shah Rukh Khan is a good example of someone who didn’t come from a wealthy home but went ahead to become a very important personality. He has received so many awards, as you would expect.
8. Alia Bhatt
Women struggle to appear on lists like this. But Alia Bhatt has proven that even though we don’t often see women on this list, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible for women to rank as one of the richest celebrities in the country. And since the actress is just 27 years of age, it wouldn’t be a mistake to say she could rise up to the third position, by the time she’s 50.
9. Sachin Tendulkar
Here comes another cricket player. Sachin Tendulkar is one of those men you can’t forget in the history of the Indian cricket world. The Indian cricket world is known to be one of the best in the world and a lot of thanks to people like Sachin Tendulkar. This man, as of the time of writing this content, is stated to be 46 years of age. And it is probably pointless saying that he’s received a lot of local and international awards.
10. Deepika Padukone
We have another woman on this list, Deepika Padukone. The woman, as you might have predicted, is from the movie industry. She is hands-down one of the best actresses in the industry. And her impressive acting skills have helped make her a fortune. The 34-year-old has been acting since 2005, and we still see her acting for many years to come. She’s also a good example of someone who didn’t come from a wealthy background but has been able to achieve remarkable success.
There are a lot of rich Indian celebrities. But the ones listed in this content, are currently the top 10 richest. And it wouldn’t come as a surprise if this list changes drastically in some years to come.
