Salman Vs Akshay – Top 10 Hits Comparison

though i think its an insult to salman to compare him with akshay, his logicless, dataless, manipulative and stupid fans andtheir rantings make it imperative for me to publish this table. see how akshay is miles behind in top 10 hits’ size and positions. all data taken from single source boxofficeindia.com

to ye hai akshay ki aukaat!

    Just searched a guy named hari om bhatya through wikipedia,he was born on 9th of september 1967, it means his age is 46(going) years, then how come his fan calling salman khan(47 years) BUDDHA when he already know that salman khan is more HANDSOME,GOOD LOOKING,YOUNG and DASHING than his favourite star….

      rowdy rathore you really think that films like kyonki and MAMK failed bcos of clashes? or else they would have worked? LOL

      Or do you know that Blue was a big disaster film in itself for producers and many distributors? or that garam masala was merely a semi hit.

      and agar tumhar logic lagana he hai to

      Shahrukh V/S Akshay se b laga sakte hai

      1993 – Waqt Hamara Hai v/s Maya Memsaab

      1996 – Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi v/s Chaahat

      So just bcos above akki films worked and srk films didnt so ab tumahre hisab se even SRK hits are also not bcos of him and again enough to clear tht akki is baap. Great bakwas logic hai akki fans ka.

    and rowdy rathor which released on non holiday with normal 3 day wknd with competition every week managed to collect 133cr at bo……..now compare tiger with rowdy………….hats off to akshay…he is deffinetly a tiger(jungle waala)..

    HF2 which was released during ipl which itself is a bigger competition than the big films managed to collect 115cr at bo…

    being a salman it is obvious you would agree to his point and the same way being an akki fan i would agree to almost everything said by akki fans……as you can c my last comment got 4 likes and 2 dislikes which is quite obvious that likes been given by akki fans and dislikes been given by sallu fans.

    Rowdy Rathore would have not done anything more than 10-12 crores had it released in Eid. Its very difficult for any film to sustain and hold well in these 5 days weekend. the film drops heavily on second day because its a regular working day, just as a monday. Still the film does bit better than Monday because its a fresh product in market.

    Salman’s star power is unbeatable in today’s scenario. No doubt RR had a better WOM than ETT, but still it lacked by at-least 55crs.

    Akshay has done well with two big hits this year, but with a major disaster too. He will have another good year, next year! He have mixed it up well for next year.

    As for Salman, yes he have to change the genre. Even if he does a buoyant rom-com, it will be a huge one for him!

    But, the one who looks most stronger in terms of line-ups is Aamir. Dhoom3 is a blcobuster, Peekay is a Hirani film so hopes already high!

    Good to see even SRK doing a different film. Rohit Shetty is a master- he will collaborate well with SRK.

    Next year will again be dhamaka.

Just You can Compare with another NoN -Holiday release Ready ,How had Movie earn at BO?

    ett is a big flop for me coz 35cr day one ke baad bhi just 186cr. Looser film and star.

    BTW srk is gone now. so don’t want to discuss about him.

    The fact is sallu became real star from PKTDK and JUDWAA. Before he had no credibility and status of being a big star. It’s a fact. Akshay has been on his own struggle and had his own fan following from Khiladi itself.

    Again sallu was nowhere before dabangg also.

    Can never give credit to sallu for HAHK.

    Akshay had his films hits on his own shoulders.

    1994, 2007 and 2012…AUKAT hai to karke dikhaye sallu or srk or aamir. BET!!!

    Serenzy- Well, what Could I say! I am labelled as SRK fan for just predicting high numbers for JTHJ. LOL. So next time I have to make sure I predict lesser figure, even though if i am not okay with it ;)

    Aditya007/Iitianway- I don’t really have work today, so I found few articles-

    http://www.naachgaana.com/2012/05/14/out-of-top-5-superstars-who-is-the-best-entertainers/

    In above link I clearly commented that Aamir, Akshay, Hritik are better actors than SRK.

    http://www.naachgaana.com/2012/01/19/box-office-predictions-of-agneepath/

    In this link you will find my fights with Jasp the Wasp who took SRK’s side and I took Hritik’s side.

    http://www.naachgaana.com/2011/12/16/box-office-predictions-of-don2/comment-page-1/#comments

    In this link you can see I called ra.One a Failure and defended that comment against a member called “Right”.

    I also had high predictions for Joker. But you guys never considered me Akshay fans then! Why this kolaveri Di?

    And I rated 3.5/5 to desi Boyz, housefull2, rowdy rathore…but why nobody called me Akshay fan. Why?

    Anyways, the interesting thing to notice is if you predict higher number for any actor’s film, you are his fan. cool. I will remember that for as long as I live.

    Do i need to say anything else? :D

    Anyways, mein at-least aaj balanced aur realistic baatein kar raha hoon. But aap kab shuru karoge balanced aur realistic baatein? I am waiting!

    About Dabangg2’s music- I am loving Dagabaaz re, but Pandey Jee seetey is not working for me! Its too much like “Humka peeni hai” which was another bad song IMO!

    Haven’t heard rest of the songs as most of the times I like to hear a song only when its video is out. waiting for fevicol song.

    This time what was was new, was the reason of labeling me SRK fan- just because I predicted high numbers for JTHJ. That gave me few laughs!

    And yeah, please care to tell me when did I “protect” JTHJ?

    And anyway, I guess it was you who posted a poll about actors- and you were supposed to make a result out of it. So you can check that page too, if any further proofs are demanded! :D

    About Akshay fans..what can I say! The best Akshay fans like Manish bhai, Samwal, Ayush are not visiting this place! They had the balls to accept the failures that their star gave! Aur baaki dusre Akshay fans toh dekho- They say RR would have done 200cr in Eid. LOL. :D And fir wo muje SRK fan samajte hai kyuki my predictions of JTHJ were too high. LMAO :D

    I never said That RR would have done 200cr mark at eid ? I said Only ,It had done More bizz more thsn ETT . & its true because ,
    Some reasions behind It –
    It had great WoM which eqaual to Dabangg 2010 release !
    RR would have 6 day Extended weekend [ Dont Forget RR earn around 47.8cr in 3Day with Non Holiday release & RR Also had done around 78cr bizz in an week, 100cr in 10 days ]
    So I had said about it.

    Akshay has one full year..he is releasing his big movie on eid, let’s place a bet today that he won’t cross ett collections…I have the balls do you? I’m here you will be here, we both and everyone will see. Do you accept the challenge, or will you chicken out ?

    no dear ..u r becoming emotional….u know i know and all know why sallu is a success now…b/c of a cultural community supporting blindly his “masala” entertainment…..and that has its reason which i said earlier (b/c of his few eid releases they are emotionaly bonded with him) …during ETT ..three cultural group came together…First one as i said above, second one who had faith in YRF’s MP charisma…third one who were fence sitter who had risen with rising wave of sallu till that date…so it made a giant wave of 186 cr….

    thats why i repeat after so much disappointment with ETT..and YRF conitnuous failure to entertain MP audience…one big section is away from sallu now….so for D2 …mostly 1.8 section will come for watching movie…1 full +0.3 MP audience+0.5 fence sitter (b/c of holiday release)

    and rahi baat bet ki to yaar mein emotional nahin hoon…not at all…at times i like watching movie in empty halls ..b/c it gives me feel of watching my movie in my personal home theater….in the same way i make a point to swim in my society pool during india pak match..

    Ranjit – itna detail mere paas kabhi nahi rehta. To do research and then challenge someone..it’s only my conviction that no other film could generate the kind of euphoria that ett did..next possibly could be dhoom 3 or Krish 3.
    And you see the irony of it all, the ones that we speak of that could challenge ett’s records are sequels or franchises. Even ouatim for that matter, just goes to show how big a salman movie really is.
    And trust me however iitian (read intelligent) you might be, salman’s reach is beyond a generic cultural group..! Be it on a social or a economic level…now that everybody is following suit, it does take away some of the novelty…and hence a Salman sooraj family drama would be the ideal break from these masala fares.
