Mark Wahlberg leads Forbes list of highest paid actors

It is Mark Wahlberg ladies and gentlemen, a local Boston boy turned superstar. Mark Wahlberg has earned 68 million dollars to himself, for which he should thank Transformers: The Last Knight and Daddy’s Home 2. Transformers: The Last Knight is the biggest disaster of the franchise’s history and has been slammed left-right by the critics still Wahlberg gets what he wants. His Remuneration is a pre-determined amount which is regardless of the film’s business. So, if Transformers had grossed 10 billion even than his money would be the same it is, guess he knew the film he was making.

Daddy’s Home 2 ought to do well at the box office because of the former part and the trailer has been appreciated widely, them Wahlburgers are getting bigger with time. Right behind him is Dwayne The Rock Johnson, who was at the top last year but shied a bit away from 60 million dollars this year. Leading man of Fast and Furious franchise is standing on the 3rd with his burning metal made up of 54 million dollars. Diesel has had a major success with Fate of the Furious, XXX-Return of the Xandar cage and Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the galaxy Vol.2.

All thanks to Netflix as Adam Sandler stands at 4th because of his production deal. Indian Superstars such as Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar also feature in the list. Shahrukh has had a bumpy year with the success of Raees and flop show Jab Harry met Sejal but they don’t call him one of the sharpest minds in business for no reason. Akshay Kumar’s Toilet – Ek Prem katha is inches away from being his career biggest hit hence his name on the list is not a surprise.
