This is not our verdict as we do not really believe in ranking system. But the stars are normally ranked according to the pre-release business, their films fetch and their popularity can be identified using the digital and satellite rights.
Going by those stats, we can say that Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu, Allu Arjun and Prabhas are leading Top four, today.
Mainly, these four actors films have fetched record breaking prices for Hindi and Telugu satellite rights and digital rights as well. Their films have good repeat value in Hindi channels that telecast, Hindi dubbed South films and so, they are getting such huge prices.
Pawan Kalyan's Agnyathavasi got a deal of 19 crores for just Telugu film satellite rights and another 20 crores for digital and Hindi film satellite rights.
Mahesh Babu's Bharat Ane Nenu got a deal of 39 crores for Telugu and Hindi satellite rights.
Allu Arjun's Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India, fetched an amount of 25 crores for Satellite rights.
Prabhas is expected to pull a deal of 70 crores and above for his Saaho with Satellite and Digital rights. As he is the most hot and happening hero, after Baahubali series this seems to be a fair deal.
Interestingly, Ram Charan and Jr. NTR are far behind in this race, for now.
