Salman Khan tops Forbes India celebrity list, again

Virat Kohli has been in top form on the cricket field in 2018 and that success has resulted in him becoming the richest sportsperson in Forbes India's list.

Priyanka Chopra, who has recently got married to American singer Nick Jonas, has slipped down from 7 to 49 position with earnings of only Rs. 18 crore.

Kapil's downfall began as soon as his show went off air in September a year ago owing to dwindling TRPs and he put his career on backburner to focus on his health.

Salman Khan earned Rs 253.25 crore between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018 through his film releases, television appearances and brand endorsements, Forbes India reports.

Following Kohli on the list of sportspersons is the former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, while Sachin Tendulkar continues to be present in the top three despite retiring from cricket five years ago.

According to Forbes, this was "a lucrative year with cumulative earnings of ₹3,140.25 crores".
