Kareena Kapoor may be Bollywood's current numero uno but according to the Hindustan Times' Sunday supplement HT Brunch article, "she'd have to act in eight films to earn as much as Aamir Khan earns from one film."

How's that for statistics?

While we were still coming to terms with the huge remuneration fees actresses command, the earnings of the top actors are even more shocking, according to HT Brunch.

Check out for yourself.

Aamir must be enjoying being a producer. All the films that he's produced so far, barring Dhobi Ghat, turned out to be commercial hits and also generated positive reviews.

The actor's asking price is a mind-numbing Rs 40 crore, which includes share in profits at times. His endorsement fees are Rs 4 crores per day.
