NEW YORK — Forbes magazine says Shah Rukh Khan is Bollywood’s highest money-maker, earning $38 million in the past year, thanks to movies such as “Raees.”

“Sultan” star Salman Khan came in No. 2 on the magazine’s ranking of top-earning Bollywood actors and actresses with $37 million. “Dishoom” actor Akshay Kumar was right behind with $35.5 million.

The rest of the top five includes “Dangal” star Aamir Khan and “Mohenjo Daro” actor Hrithik Roshan.

Two women made the Top 10 list. They are Deepika Padukone, who is No. 6, with $11 million, and “Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra, at No. 7 with $10 million.

The rankings are based on data that includes revenue from endorsements, advertising and product lines between June 2016 and June 2017 before fees and taxes.
