In South Indian cinema, where famous actors command enormous paychecks, Akkineni Nagarjuna has emerged as the surprising leader in wealth among his peers. While big names like Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, and Chiranjeevi are known for their stardom and substantial earnings, it’s Nagarjuna who stands out as the wealthiest star in the industry.
At 64 years old, Nagarjuna has built a diverse career, excelling not only as an actor but also as a producer, TV host, and successful businessman. His net worth of Rs. 3010 crores surpasses all, attributed to earnings from films, ownership of Annapurna Studio, co-ownership of Kerala Blasters FC in the Indian Super League, real estate ventures, and endorsements. His lavish lifestyle includes a Rs. 45 crore mansion, luxurious cars, and even a private jet.
Following Nagarjuna in wealth are Victory Venkatesh with a net worth of Rs. 2200 crores and Chiranjeevi at Rs. 1650 crores. Other high-earning actors include Ram Charan, Vijay, Junior NTR, Kamal Haasan, and Allu Arjun.
