It may have been a really long time since we last saw Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra starring in a film together but the stars have definitely managed to feature together in Variety’s list of 500 influential business leaders shaping the global $2 trillion entertainment industry.’ However, they are not the only two Indian celebrities featuring on the list. Apart from them, Aditya Chopra, Sidharth Roy Kapoor, Mukesh and Anil Ambani, Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor and Chairman of Essel Group and Rajya Sabha MP, Dr Subhash Chandra, Kishore Lulla, Uday Shankar and Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Zee Entertainment Enterprises – Punit Goenka have also been featured in the coveted list.
Variety Magazine’s official Twitter handle tweeted, “Salman Khan is one of the unrelated Khan triumvirate comprising Aamir and Shah Rukh that has been ruling the Bollywood box office for decades.” The tweet also carries a link to the article, which lists down Salman’s latest and forthcoming work projects. Not only his film and TV work, it also covers news on his charitable organisation, Being Human foundation and the work the actor has been doing under its umbrella over the years.

On the other hand, there’s no guessing what they must have written about the global icon- Priyanka Chopra. The magazine covered her successful stint in both Bollywood as well as her Hollywood, her popular TV series — Quantico which is gearing up to make a comeback with its third season and her philanthropic work. For the uninitiated, Priyanka is the global UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Child Rights. Through Her NGO, the Priyanka Chopra Foundation for Health and Education, the actress helps a lot of children fight deadly diseases and gain education. It’s indeed a pleasure to see so many Indian names make it to the coveted list. We at India.com would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of them for achieving such a great feat.
