You may have thought that the five richest actors in the world would all be Hollywood stars. Turns out that actually Bollywood royal Shah Rukh Khan has nabbed the number two spot in the prestigious list. The 48-year-old is now the second richest actor in the world, and also the richest actor across Asia according to the Singapore-based Wealth-X, the world's leading ultra-high net worth (UHNW) intelligence firm.

Jerry Seinfield is number one with $820 million in his bank according to the survey but Shah Rukh Khan beat out Hollywood titans Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp and even Tom Hanks with a fortune of a whopping $600 million.

The Kuch Kuch Hota Hai actor has also multiplied his assets by taking on different job roles over the years, such as producer and television hosts, plus he co-owns an Indian cricket club.

With all that money, he’s also developed a sense of style over the years and is never afraid to take risks on the red carpet. Did you know he’s also mastered wearing a perfectly tailored suit? Hats off.
