Bollywood A-list actors Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Karan Johar have made it to the American magazine Variety's list of 500 most influential business leaders in the entertainment industry.

Salman Khan also said "I think I have lived the most boring life".

The two were named in the prestigious list among other influential Indians, according to a Bollywood Life report.

Apart from them, 10 other Indians also feature in the list. The editorial board selected these 500 people after carrying out extensive research.

Salman Khan is one of the unrelated Khan triumvirate comprising Aamir and Shah Rukh that has been ruling the Bollywood box office for decades. Salman Khan answered every question very nicely.

Furthermore, Khan's profile reflects on his charitable company "Being Human" as well his recent deal with Amazon prime for his future projects. "Besides her acting, Chopra also takes time to sing and has released three singles - "In My City", which aired during National Football League games; "Exotic", with Pitbull; and "I Can't Make You Love Me", a cover of Bonnie Raitt's song".

India's global star Priyanka Chopra is no surprise on the list as the actor has brought laurels to the country with her ventures in the West. For those of you who don't know, Priyanka is a global UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Child Rights.

"Variety 500", which compiles the list of the most influential people, takes into account accomplishments over the previous 12 months. These are Punit Goenka (Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd CEO and MD), Ekta Kapoor (Balaji Telefilms MD and Creative Director), Aditya Chopra (Yashraj Films Chairman) and Kishore Lulla (Eros International Executive Chairman).
