Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, who is making a mark in Bollywood, has topped the Times Celebex male celebrity list with 18 points, while Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra has topped the female celebrity list with 15 points in the month of March.

Fawad has gained the top position in the Times Celebex list by beating Bollywood superstars like Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. Aamir had topped the list in the month of February, but for March, the "Dangal" actor slipped to the seventh spot.

Times Celebex, a monthly rating index, is measured on the parameters, including the box office performance, ability of the actor to stay in news across all mediums and popularity among fans. And Fawad managed to top in all the parameters, thanks to his performance in "Kapoor and Sons." Fawad, who has a huge fan following in India, was praised for his performance in "Kapoor and Sons."

Shah Rukh, who was in the news for "Fan" release, has made it to the second spot in the Times Celebex list, while Salman came third. Ranveer Singh has taken the fourth spot in the list, while Fawad's "Kapoor and Sons" co-star Sidharth Malhotra rounded the top five position with the fifth spot.

Priyanka, on the other hand, was in the news for her Oscar's red carpet debut, her Bollywood movie "Jai Gangaajal" and her Hollywood movie "Baywatch." Alia Bhatt took the second spot, while Shraddha Kapoor became the third female celebrity on the list.

Kangana Ranaut, who was in the news for the National Awards, and the legal spat between her and Hrithik Roshan, ranked fourth in the list. Deepika Padukone was at the fifth spot due to her international projects and awards for "Bajirao Mastani."
