      Are you mad or something?

      Do you even know how Forbes works? NO

      They don’t contact celebrities asking for their income it is their job to find out!

      Aamir Khan will never feature in this list because he doesn’t do much endorsements which gets actors more money than movies!

      So use your brain! Don’t go blind chanting Aamir Aamir!!! I know what you @austin just said was all made up In your little brain hahahahaha

      • Abe gawaar aamir is Baap of your hakla, Salman and akshay in stardom, popularity, fan following and wealth. He is the richest and most successful Indian superstar so get a life. You don’t know any shit about aamir’s wealth so shut your bloody mouth.
