Number 7: Aamir Khan, actor & filmmaker
Marketer No 1
The man used to be known as a great actor, but now Aamir Khan has successfully emerged as one of the best marketing strategists in the entertainment industry. His marketing strategies have been widely copied by other Bollywood filmmakers.
Once again, his production — Delhi Belly — has scored at the box office this year, thanks to a clever marketing strategy. The government of India honoured him with the Padma Shri in 2003 and the Padma Bhushan in 2010 for his contribution to the arts.
