Bollywood is a treasure trove, not just for the movies, but for the actors as well. The three Khans are a true testament to this fact. Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan reign supreme through the years with dedication to the field and skills which are still not matched by any other actor.
While they may be the reigning Khans on screen, what is interesting to note is that only Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan are among the top three richest actors. Aamir Khan falls just one step below not a Khan, but below Akshay Kumar!
Today, we take a look at the three Khans who are not just amazing actors, but also the way they have handled their finances as well. Hopefully, these numbers will push you to have a productive Thursday as well!
1) Shah Rukh Khan
The King of Romance and the Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan stands as one of the richest actors in Bollywood. Forbes totals SRK’s worth to a grand tune of $ 38 million! With all the endorsements, movies and advertisements the Badshah does, it comes as no surprise this man is the 8th richest on the list.
2) Salman Khan
Despite Salman Khan’s massive unpopularity with his hit and run case, this particular Khan is always on the top – for his fans and on the Forbes list. The actor stands at number 9 on the list and Forbes values his net worth at a cool $ 37 million.
3) Aamir Khan
Aamir Khan, aka Mr. Perfectionist, recently made it to the list of being one of the wealthiest actors from Bollywood. As early as last year, Aamir joined the ranks of Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. As per Forbes, his total worth stands at $ 13 million. Not known for making commercially viable films, Aamir’s 2016 superhit Dangal, put this actor on the list.
This valuation is enviable, to say the least. More often than not, we tend to take the amount of hard work gone into reaching this level for granted. Numbers like this are a grounding fact, giving us the boost we need to get better every day!

The movie managed to stay at the top at the box office and is expected to perform well during the Diwali weekend. Despite the film doing well among the audience, it was not well received by the critics.

Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under his banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, Housefull 4 is said to be the most expensive Indian comedy film.
