Akshay Kumar recently made it to the Forbes world's highest-paid celebrities list, and his Baby co-star Taapsee Pannu congratulated the actor saying he deserves it. "Inspiring, deserving and truly one of the best we have around... Akshay Kumar," she tweeted on Friday. Surpassing popular international figures such as Rihanna, Jackie Chan, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans and Katy Perry, Akshay ranked 33 on the Forbes list with earnings worth $65 million. In context to his earnings, Taapsee joked: "Bas sir ab sharing and caring ki baari hai (Enough sir, now it's your turn to share and care)."
Akshay Kumar, who is known for his wit and sense of humour, had a hilarious reply as he posted a meme of himself in which he is seen making a quirky face. "Beg you pardon," the photograph read. Akshay is the only Bollywood star to find a spot in the Forbes list this year, among 99 others. This has brought him much attention. Check out the tweets here-

Akshay earlier tweeted an emotional note, revealing why he chose to do the film. He wrote, "For several years Hollywood made movies and TV shows like Star Trek, Star Wars, Gravity etc. This inspired an entire generation of inventors, scientists and explorers.

A film which I’ve done specially for my daughter and children her age to familiarise them with the incredible true story of India’s mission to Mars!"
