Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan is the world's second-richest actor with a fortune of US$600 million (S$752 million), according to a survey.

He was beaten to the top spot by comic Jerry Seinfeld, 60, on a Hollywood and Bollywood Rich List released on Wednesday by Wealth-X, a Singapore-based wealth research firm. The survey estimated Seinfeld's fortune at US$820 million.

The company says Seinfeld's wealth increased with network syndication deals for his sitcom Seinfeld, giving him at least US$400 million in the fifth syndication agreement last year.

Khan, 48, has acted in more than 50 Bollywood films. His wealth also comes from his roles as a producer, TV host and co-owner of an Indian cricket club.
