A list, which is generally dominated by business tycoons of the country, now welcomes the entry of the Bollywood actor who secured a place in the list with wealth worth Rs US$600 million (3,660 crore).
What might have shocked many that Shahrukh has been giving tough competition to Reliance Chairman -- Mukesh Ambani. However, Ambani still remains on the top of the list with wealth worth Rs 5,21,550 crore.
Mukesh Ambani still remains on the top of the list of richest man of India
The latest report has been published by Wealth-X, a leading ultra high net worth (UHNW) intelligence and prospecting firm. The firm revealed a list of top five richest Indians and they are -- Mukesh Ambani (Reliance Industries), Lakshmi Mittal (Arcelor Mittal), Dilip Shangvi (Sun Pharmaceutical Industries), Azim Premji (Wipro) and Pallonji Shapoorji Mistry (Tata Sons).
Shahrukh Khan earlier was declared as the second richest actor of the world. Wealth-X in May 2014 said the co-chairman of Red Chillies Entertainment and co-owner of the Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) was the second richest actor in the Hollywood and Bollywood Rich List.
Shahrukh even had beaten Hollywood actors Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp to gain the second spot. Jerry Seinfeld topped the list with US$820 million, while Khan came second with US$600 million.
