- Deepika and Big B dropped out of the Top 10 list
- Aamir Khan and Priyanka's spot improved from last year
- The rankings are based on earnings and age
The earnings reported for the top five are, in order - Rs 232.83 crore, Rs 170.50 crore, Rs 100.72 crore, Rs 98.25 crore, and Rs 82.50 crore.
Prabhas, this year's breakout star in Baahubali 2, is ranked 22 while headline-making Kangana Ranaut comes in at 26. Anushka Sharma, who recently married Virat Kohli, occupies berth number 32.
Fans of Rajinikanth (who are legion) will be shocked to discover that the star, surely India's uber-celebrity, places nowhere on the list, after being ranked a poor #30 last year. Rajinikanth's solo film this year, 2.0 with Akshay Kumar, was postponed to 2018 - so next year's list could see him highly-ranked.
Next year's list is unlikely to see an major upheavals at the top - Salman's Tiger Zinda Hai released today and he has Race 3 on the 2018 slate. SRK and Akshay also have big releases planned - Akshay, particularly, has PadMan and 2.0 to look forward to.
