Forbes has made Aishwarya Rai bigger than the Khans. It has listed her as India’s most bankable star in Hollywood, pushing down the Khans of Bollywood in the ratings of the best bet for a film’s financial success.
She’s ranked highest among all Indian actors which also make her the only female actor from the country to be a part of the elite group.
There are five other actors in the new Forbes list of Hollywood’s Most Valuable Actors. Others in the list compiled by the American business magazine are Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Irrfan Khan and Hrithik Roshan.
She’s in the 387th position in the global list of as many as 1,411 actors from across the world and is ranked highest among all Indian actors. Aamir is ranked highest at 540th in the global list followed by Shah Rukh (735), Salman (753), Irrfan (825) and Hrithik (1,059).
Indian American actor Kal Penn who stared as actress Tabu’s son in ‘The Namesake’ has been listed at the 476th position.
So that makes his rank higher than all the Bollywood actors, except Aishwarya Rai, who stars in the new Hollywood venture ‘The Pink Panther 2′.According to Forbes the global list, topped by Hollywood actor Will Smith, is based on the bankability of actors around the world as voted by members of the global entertainment industry. Smith is the only one who gets a ten-on-ten score and is followed by four Hollywood stars — Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie — sharing the second position followed by Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Denzel Washington, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson in the top 10.
