Shahrukh VS Salman – A Comparative Career Study

On the eve of RA1 release i am presenting a comparative career analysis of the two khans. This is a part of a larger study of top 10 stars of the last two decades but here i am only re-publishing the srk- salman comparison.

the methodology- total value (TV)

all time blockbuster =10 marks
top 5 films of the year = 9 to 5 marks (9 for top hit, unless ATBB)

hit but still not in top 5 = 5 marks

outside top 5 list

semi hit – 4 marks

above average – 3 markS

average – 2 marks

below average (15% commision earner) = 1 mark

 

Credited value (CrV)
Solo hero – full TV (Total value)
2 hero/3 hero films – TV divided by 2/3
extended special appearence – 2 marks (IF another star has a special appearence /extended spcl apprnce in srk/salman film, his credit of 1/2 marks gets deducted from srk/salman marks)
special appearence – 1 marks
fleeting appearnce – 0 mark

(all information from single source boxofficeindia.com)

 

kindly note that all the ususal cribs have been taken care off. for example :

1. how can u credit salman for KKHH – well he has been given only 2 out of 10 marks and srk 8 markS (srk with a role little longer than salman in kkhh in deewana gets 4 marks out of total value of 8 while salman only 2 out of TV of 10)

2. how can u credit salman for baghban, well only 2 marks for a special apparence.

3. while just one very small star zayed has eaten off 2 marks from main hoon na, everyone from arbaz to sohail to mohnish behel to even sanjay kapoor have eaten off marks from salman’s credited value. so dont accuse me of any bias.

As u must have noticed total value of all salman films is 201 while srk TV is 188, thats a huge gap but can be covered with two big hits. however the credited value of all salman films is 144.5 marks while srk is 137.5 and can be covered with just one big hit that makes it to third spot (7 marks) in the top 5 films of the year list. so the competition is rather neck to neck.

still both in terms of total value (TV) and credited value (CrV) salman is ahead of srk. this is the most scientific excersize possible that takes care of every factor.

    Some people take Ng very seriously, certainly Its good for Ng. However, wake up kid, there are lots of things in earth than telegu( criminal) khan and srk. Get some fresh air, make few friends in real life.

    @Ranju – When you and Shilac keep farting and licking axx’s of each other how can anyone get fresh air?
    “make few friends in real life.” – Instead of provoking others you need to have friends in real life as I find you only with Shilac’s company

    Danish!

    Your nonsense makes no sense. KANK was Hit by all Trade except Komal Nahta, so stop cribbing and crying on that. Don you can argue as it was Hit only by BOI remaining had it Semi-Hit (Taran Adarsh, Vinod Mirani & Amod Mehra). And if you are using BOI the model than SRK leads by 1 film.

    Shah Rukh Khan – 20 (Deewana, Baazigaar, Darr, KA, DDLJ, Pardes, DTPH, KKHH, Mohabbatein, K3G, Devdas, KHNH, MHN, VZ, KANK, Don, CDI, OSO, RNBDJ & MNIK).

    Salman Khan – 19 (MPK, SB, Saajan, HAHK, KA, Jeet, Judwaa, PKTDK, KKHH, Biwi No.1, HSSH, Baghban, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, No Entry, Partner, Wanted, Dabangg, Ready & Bodyguard).

    Next time don’t make these types of stupid comparisons. We know Salman has more number of Hits compared to SRK, but SRK in his own right has maintained very well. BOI as model can’t be used fully as for both SRK and Salman they have reduced number of Hits.

    Danish Babu isee ko kehate hain. Meetha-Meetha Gadap, Kadwa-Kadwa thu. No mention offlop and disasters. Still I belive in your scienctific study. You put a lot of effort. Phir bhi final score is

    Salman TV 201 CrV 144.5
    Sharukh TV 188 CrV 137.5

    It is not as bad for SRK as you want to prove and not as great for Salman as you want to prove from the first day of your on NG.

    Danish,

    I am the last person to comment on Box office…As you know I am weak in Box office mathematics (seriously–no sarcasm here) so I can’t comment much. However, having read your posts and comments for a long time, I can say you wouldn’t have been biased while doing any calculations..So once again..Two thumbs up from me for this post..I appreciate it for the effort and level of detail..However I would have included the list of flops as well for a clear picture..like yuvraj and Pir bhi dil hai hindustani..,,anyways since its not my domain..I will let the usual suspects battle it out.

    Agreed..Include flops and disasters with negative number on opposite side of scale and divide by number of movies.

    @RKS Agreed..Include flops and disasters with negative number on opposite side of scale and divide by number of movies.

    In that sense Ranbir Singh(BBB fame) will be ahead of SRK and Salman .. :)

    danish “wanted is the 2nd biggest hit of 2009, don and kank dont even feature in top 5 films of 2006. wanted got a premiere tv rating of 4 tvr on star plus don/kank less than 2″

    what was your point? kabhi kabhi toh serious jaab dya karo. to refresh your memory bro, you said
    “arrey boi ko srk thode paise dega to ra1 50 cr par bhi atbb declare ho jaayegi. if they can declare don and kank hits, they can do anything.”

    and i reply to you saying ” u forgot to include wanted in this, boi declare it super hit, salman nei kitna dya paisa?”

    now can you tell me by who anted is the 2nd biggest hit of 2009? by BOI, the same boi you critisize bcz they said don and kank hit
    so in you words salman in an even biger corrupt and more money to boi to declare his film super hit and 2nd bigges hit.

    also your point of not counting flops is ridiuous
    you say “we are looking for the indicators of popularity,” to kia flops se popularity peh koi farak nahi parta, a flop dont interfere in the popularity f the star? anser it pls instead of running away

    “imdb lists 75 titles for srk and 84 for salman”
    i opne the srk filmo lit on this site and the first 10 i got are in this order
    don2 , ra one , always kabhi kabhi, , koochie koochie hota hai, dhula mil ghia, aho wish karein, billu, rnbdj, kismet konection and boothnath,
    i dont even go down to read te rest.
    in this 10 film how much of srk film? ONLY 3 jin mei sei 2 are not even released

    “also if u are talking about a producer then flops matter as he loses moeny on flops, actorsd dont”

    danish the same for hits, producer make money on hits , actors dont.
    if actor popularity and salaries go up with hits , so the same goes for flops where actor popularity go down and affect its salary.

    yakuza – its need to be an apples-to-apples comparison.

    In Cricket , Average is a great indicator but only when the player had played for long enough. If someone hits a century on debut, he doesn’t become greater than Sachin.

    Danish – I find your reason for not including flops ridiculous. If you want to make this post really objective, include the number of flops and disasters and why only – 1 and -2…why not -5 and -10?
    A disaster does harm the popularity of an actor in a big way.

    danish – depends.
    in the long run, people will forget flops if the actor has much more hits and BBs than flops and disasters.
    Look at TMK, it was not even a flop ..just a hyped film which ws trashed by people and it has damaged the reputation of Akki hugely.
    If Wanted would have released today, it might have done more than 150 Crores…at that time, Sallu was not going through a good phase and people did not have faith in his movies.
    So, yes, they should be considered. about the exact amount for deduction, it is you to decide.

    Of course you will weed out outliers in any statistical analysis.

    Another stupid retarded list. The only reason Danish wont list out the flops because it will clearly show Salman below SRK. Simple as that.
