    Although Robert Downey Jr. maintained the top position for the third year in a row, Bachchan, Khan and Kumar knocked Hollywood A-listers off the list to snag the 7th, 8th, and 9th position on Forbes' list. (Khan and Bachchan technically tied for 7th place.)

    Bachchan and Khan both entered the list, earning $33.5 million in the last year, and Kumar was just below them with $32.5 million.

    Bachchan, a recognised name worldwide, has appeared in a number of films in 2014/2015 including Piku, Bhoothnath Returns, and Shamitabh.
