Forbes ranked him 13th in the list, down from the No. 2 spot he occupied in 2017.

For a superstar used to reigning over the box office and the hearts of his zillion fans, Shah Rukh Khan seemed unperturbed by the fact that he had been ousted from the Forbes list of top richest Indian celebrities in 2018.

When Khaleej Times met up with the star at Palazzo Versace Dubai, he was blasť about his 'fall from grace': "In the last three-four days I have found out that I have fallen out of a magazine's list of rich people (Forbes ranked him 13th in the list, down from the No. 2 spot he occupied in 2017).

"I've become dearer on Twitter (SRK's Twitter account was judged among the top 10 'Most talked about Indian Twitter Accounts' yesterday) and poorer according to the (Forbes) survey. I just hope with this film (Zero) I become nearer! So dearer, poorer and nearer in one day! That's the life of a star!"

Khan, who is expected to meet fans on Thursday night at Global Village, is slated to jet off to Muscat and Kuwait later to promote the Anand L. Rai directed Zero that stars him alongside Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.

Zero releases in the UAE on December 21.
