The Forbes '30 under 30 Asia' list includes 300 'young and driven entrepreneurs and game-changers' from countries including India, Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Pakistan, Vietnam and Australia who are contributing to their industries in a significant way.
As many as 56 Indians feature in the list with 27-year old Kohli, Mirza and Nehwal and 26-year old actress Shraddha Kapoor leading the pack.

“At the top of India's cricket culture is batting prince Kohli, who led India to clean sweep in their Twenty 20 series against Australia in January," Forbes said of Kohli, who was named among India's highest earning celebrities in 2015 at USD 11.3 million.

Forbes said from the moment 29-year old Mirza turned pro at age 16 in 2003, she has been the 'most successful female Indian tennis player ever' and one of the highest paid and highest profile athletes in the country. She is currently the world's number one female doubles tennis player with partner Martina Hingis.
