Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra are among the 12 Indian faces in Variety’s list of 500 ‘influential business leaders shaping the global $2 trillion entertainment industry.’ The list also includes directors Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra, producer Ekta Kapoor, and the Ambani brothers, Sidharth Roy Kapur, Punit Goenka, Kishore Lulla, Uday Shankar and Subhash Chandra.

Variety500, according to the publication’s website, ‘reflects the accomplishments of its members over the previous 12 months’. The listed names are selected by the Variety editorial board.

Priyanka’s profile lists her Miss World title, Bollywood debut and the crossover to US television with Quantico. “Besides her acting, Chopra also takes time to sing and has released three singles — “In My City,” which aired during NFL games; “Exotic,” with Pitbull; and “I Can’t Make You Love Me,” a cover of Bonnie Raitt’s song,” it reads.

It also mentions her work as the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Child Rights and the Priyanka Chopra Foundation for Health and Education, which helps needy kids.

India’s contribution of 12 names makes it sixth biggest contributor on the list, following US (362), UK (28), China (20), France (16) and Germany (15). Actors Tom Hanks, Ben Affleck, singer Katy Perry, Drake, Jennifer Lopez and several other names also made it to the list.
