Forbes Celebrity 100 list for the year 2016 has been officially released by the magazine, and the list has come as a rude shock to Telugu movie lovers.
In the Top 100, one can find only the names of Bollywood celebs, cricketers, singers and other sportspersons. Although Tollywood is the second largest film industry in the nation and the films of our star heroes are adored even in North, the Forbes magazine has given only 4 Telugu actors a place for in the list.
Mahesh Babu, Allu Arjun, NTR and Ram Charan secured places in the top 100. Many wonder what happened to Pawan Kalyan and Prabhas?
According to Forbes, it gives the ranks based on Annual Earnings, Fame, Google Ranking, Magazine cover pages & several other factors.
Alongside earnings, fame plays a key role in deciding the ranks. Aren’t Pawan Kalyan (huge celeb on film and political front) and Prabhas (Baahubali star) famed enough to be listed in the Top 100?
