Remember your school or college days when, after exams your teachers used to display a list of top scoring students. Finding your name on such list is always a moment of proud and it should be actually, because it gives you a distinct identity and more people talk about you. Unfortunately, I was not able to make it to the list ever. However, we often come across various lists or groups of people who possess something in great abundance may it be fame, skills, hit movies, highest scores but there is one thing that is common to all the fields and it is money. Everyone wants to be rich, but the feeling of the richest among all is out of this world(I hope I get that too sooner or later). Today we are going to discuss about top 10 richest celebrities of the world, we are taking people from the entertainment industry for now.
