According to the latest report, Forbes India magazine has released the names of top 100 celebrities who are considered to be rich, famous and influential. The report which was published by Indiaglitz has it that Thala Ajith who is placed 19th and 98th in the rich and influential index respectively has overtaken the likes of Rajinikanth to become the new richest Tamil actor.
Superstar Rajinikanth is placed 21st in the list of 100 richest Indian celebrities. When it comes to his popularity, he takes the 89th place, quite surprisingly. Ilayathalapathy Vijay is not far behind as he has been given the slots 23rd and 80th in being rich and famous respectively.
The result effectively means that Vijay is more influential than Rajinikanth and Ajith. But isn’t Rajinikanth Asia’s second highest paid actor? Well he is, but thanks to fewer number of movies in the last couple of years coupled with the Lingaa issue, his wealth has taken a dip, it seems.
Vijay on the other hand has not increased his salary in recent times and accepts less or more similar pay cheque for almost all his movies, leaving Ajith to lead the race of the wealthiest.
