Pawan Kalyan’s popularity needs no introduction and now, Forbes magazine has named him as one among the top 100 celebrities in the country. In a survey conducted by the magazine, Pawan Kalyan is at the 26th position in Forbes Celebrity List 2013. The survey took fame, earnings in to consideration while ranking the celebrities.
Apart from Pawan Kalyan, few other Tollywood celebrities were named in the list including Mahesh Babu (54), Nagarjuna (61), Ravi Teja (68) and Ram Charan (69). One of the major factor which comes into play in this survey is the remuneration, brand endorsements and also earnings from other sources, apart from their overall popularity. What’s surprising is that Rajinikanth hasn’t been named in the list this year since he hasn’t had a single release.
Interestingly, none of the heroines from Telugu film industry were named in the list which is dominated by Bollywood stars and cricketers.
