With USD 600 million, Shah Rukh is the only Indian who has featured on the Wealth-X list of top 10 wealthiest Hollywood and Bollywood personalities, which is topped by Jerry Seinfeld.
SRK, fondly called the Bollywood Badshah, has pipped big names like Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp and Tom Hanks.
"With the second richest actor in the world! Shah Rukh Khan you were rich even when you didn't have money," Farah posted on her Facebook and Twitter page Thursday along with a photograph featuring herself hugging SRK.
The actor, who started his career in showbiz in 1988 via TV and entered filmdom with 1992 film "Deewana", is amongst Bollywood's most well known talents.
