In 2016 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (June 23) that Uwais is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between May 2018 and May 2019, a nearly $40 million lead over his closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The Indonesian actor has an estimated net worth of $215 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Uwais Burger” chain) in Jakarta, a Football Team (the “Jakarta Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderuwais - Indonesia), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Iko) and a fashion line called “Iko Uwais Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Iko fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
