2015 Forbes list: Mahesh Babu beats Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan

Forbes India is a popular financial and business magazine, which also curates a prestigious list titled – Forbes Celebrity 100, featuring 100 Indian celebrities. This list is compiled based on two factors – the celebrity’s monetary worth and and the extent of their fame. Forbes India has released the list of top 100 celebrities this year, and it features an admirable number actors, music directors, and cricketers from South India.
 
 
Oscar award winning composer A. R. Rahman is ranked 14th on the list. Surprisingly, Mahesh Babu beat Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan to top the list of south celebs. Dhanush and Allu Arjun climbed up their ranks from 2014, to stand at 37th and 42nd rank respectively, in 2015. The team of a blockbuster film of 2015, Prabhas and director S. S. Rajamouli, have also been included in the list. Kajal Aggarwal and Shruti Haasan are the only female actors (who star in South Indian films) who have been featured here. 
 
 
Newcomers to the list
 
Ravichandran Ashwin (rank – 31)
Santhanam (rank – 52)
Kajal Aggarwal (rank – 58)
Shruti Haasan (rank – 61)
Kabir Khan (rank -70)
SS Rajamouli (rank -72)
Prabhas (rank – 77)
Arya (rank -80)
Puri Jagannadh (rank – 89)
 
 
According to Forbes, the rankings are based on two parameters: Estimates of entertainment-related earnings of celebrities and estimate of the extent of their fame. This is further calculated based on the media-visibility of the celebrities. However, the fact that actors Ajith Kumar, Vijay and Pawan Kalyan, who had made it on the 2014 list, weren’t included in the current list. Why? Well, this still remains a question to many.
