The ‘Bell Bottom’ star, who turns 54 today, has a fortune pegged at $48.5 million, as per Forbes. He was the only Indian actor to find a spot on the magazine’s highest-paid actors in the world list in 2020, led by Dwayne Johnson. Kumar stood at the 6th spot ahead of celebrities like Will Smith and Jackie Chan. He also found a spot on the publication’s highest-paid celebrities list, where the only Indian ahead of him was Indian skipper Virat Kohli.
According to media reports, Kumar – who is Bollywood’s highest-paid star – charges over Rs 120 crore for a film, but despite that, a major source of his income comes from (his over 36) brand endorsements.
It’s not just what the star does in front of the screen (he is also gearing up for his first digital show ‘The End’ for Amazon Prime) that adds to the bank, but also Kumar’s various business investments. Here’s a look at where the actor chooses to invest his money.
The actor lost his mother a day before his birthday. She had been admitted to the ICU at Mumbai’s Hiranandani hospital, earlier this week.
The production house has bankrolled over 15 movies, several of which see Kumar as the leading man. ‘Singh Is Kinng’, ‘Patiala House’, ‘Airlift’, ‘Rustom’ and ‘Padman’ are among the movies backed by the banner.
In 2014, the star converted this passion into business, investing in the Khalsa Warriors team in the World Kabaddi League.
Three years later, in 2017, Kumar joined hands with the Future Group to own a stake in Kolkata-based Pro-Kabaddi League franchise Bengal Warrior.
The actor is also the brand ambassador for the fitness technology venture.
At the time of the investment, Vishal Gondal, chief executive of GOQii, had told ET that Kumar had come on board as an investor and strategic advisor.
