Entertainment Desk: Who is the most expensive star in India? Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan may be the names in the answer. The names of southern film stars Thalapati Vijay, Ram Charan, Allu Arjun or Yash may come to the mouth of some. The name of a famous cricketer of the Indian team may also come.
but no Shah Rukh and Amitabh Bachchan are the only Khans in this list, but in the top 10, but at the bottom. According to a report by corporate investigation and risk consulting firm Kroll, India’s most valuable star for 2022 is actress Deepika Padukone’s husband, actor Ranveer Singh.
A report published under the title ‘Celebrity Brand Valuation Report 2022’ says that Ranveer Singh has occupied the top spot with a brand value of 181.7 million dollars i.e. 1 thousand 494 crore rupees in Indian currency. Virat Kohli, the best cricketer of the country’s national team, was on top of this list for the last 5 years. But this time Ranveer displaced him and occupied the top spot.
Kohli has dropped to the second place with a brand value of 176.9 million dollars. Two years after he stepped down as the captain of the Indian cricket team, his brand value declined. His brand value was over $237 million in 2020. In 2021, it declined to $185.7 million.
‘Khiladi’ Akshay Kumar is third in this list with a brand value of $153.6 million. Alia Bhatt is in fourth place with $102.9 million. Deepika Padukone’s brand valuation is $82.9 million, placing her at fifth place. Then there are Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan respectively.
Former cricketer MS Dhoni’s brand value is 80 million dollars. Sachin Tendulkar’s brand value is $73.6 million.
The brand value of the top 25 celebrities in 2022 is estimated at $1.6 billion, which is about 29.1 percent higher than in 2021. This is the first time that southern stars Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandana have made it to the top 25 list of India.
Shahrukh is not letting go of Deepika’s hand easily
Olympic gold medalist Neeraj Chopra also made it to the top 25 along with Commonwealth gold medalist PV Sindhu. Both were worth $26.5 million. But Ranveer Singh surprised everyone. Although the actor did not have a hit film after ‘Padmaavat’ in 2018, the question has been raised as to how his brand value is so much.
