    a smart post and slap to the faces of those ( ……) will not mention any name who think salman is a much bigger star..!!
    ab danish bolega k MPK aur HAHK ki inflation adjusted tou cross karo..! danish bhai khuda k liye 1990s k zamanay cy bahar ajao..ab tou 2013 shru hone wala ha tum abhi tak us ki pelhi film k peechay hi paray ho..!!
    i can sum it up 1990 -1999 it was salman khan…
    2000-2009 it was akshay kumar
    2010 -2019 lets see….still akshay leading with
    housefull
    housefull 2
    rowdyrathore

      mpk and hahk…both movies says everything in their title..maine pyaar kiya..is said by bhagyashree…and “hum aapke hain kaun” by maadhuri in movie…so u and we all can see who owned these movies…

      yes mpk was 50-50 between sallu and bhaagyashree..
      but hahk was 30-50-20 30 for sallu, 50 for madhuri and 20 for rest of imp casts

      take this test…with 10 random people ..who are asked to recall a name as soon as we say a movie name ….do it with hahk..and mpk…and u will see it is madhuri for first one and sallu/bhagyashree for later one…

      i have done it many times..

        @iitian Great bro. I have also done test for KKHH and DDLJ many times on average 8 out of 10 people have said they remember kajol anjali and simran character when recalling these films. For DDLJ and KKHH its Kajol90 – 10srk

          HaHaha Akki fans pagal ho gaye ho abe MPK and HAHK both were Biggest salman’s solo hero ATBB’s Both MPK and HAHK were love story of character Prem.Salman was throughout in the film till the end. same goes for SRK for DDLJ and KKHH.
          Akki ke career mein usko kabhi itni badi ATBB nahin mil skti to kuch b bakwas mat karo.

      @waleed @ank In year 2001 Salman’s delayed SOLO film CCCC did more than akshay’s multistarrer film. You have written equal collections for both the films but it was CCCC which collected more than ajnabee.

      In year 2002 again HTHS was delayed film

      In year 2004 Mujse shadi karogi belonged to both

      In year 2005 salman’s film was ahead

      So Akshay dominated salman after 2005 ie from year 2006-2008 .

    Some of the simple Facts

    ATBB, BB , Highest grossers All this define Superstardom.

    After 20+ years akshay’s record in bollywood –

    ATBB- Zero

    BB- just Two out of first ever solo blockbuster this year this year in 2012 and other one in 2007 welcome.

    Highest grossers- Zero

    All 3 Khans and also hrithik are far ahead in these records.

    Even sunny deol and govinda at their prime had ATBB and highest gosser

    And on the Other hand actor having similar record Ajay devgn in fact he gave his first solo blockbuster before Akshay’s RR this year.

    Akshay has been always just a star never a superstar.

      and as soon as sallu makes 1-2 mistakes ..he will will be back to yuvraaj days…first mistake he has already committed..with ETT.

        November 24, 2012 at 3:15 PM

        @iitianWay mere maanne se ya na manne se kya hota hai yeh to sach he hai ke Akshay ke pure career mein sirf 2 blockbuster he hai wo b pehla kuch years pehle 2007 mein multistareer welcome aur pehla solo blockbuster 2012 mein isi saal. ATBB or one big hit of single year wo to ZERO he hai.
        khan or hrithik to bhool jao govinda or sunny deol ke b record ache the
        EXACT SAME record ajay devgn ka b hai. so sach sabke saame hai. mere maane se ya hai na manne se kuch nahin hota.
        aur why only salman if any of actor does mistakes he will go down only. same applies to akshay also similarly uske lie to kafi sare days hai khladi 420 wale days or tasveer wale days or CC2C wale days or TMK or akki chahe kitna b acha kr le ek do disaster to d he deta hai :P
        and you believe ETT Highest grosser of this year till now Blockbuster film was mistake of salman. GREAT

      November 22, 2012 at 11:55 PM

      Koi pustak mein nhn pada It’s common sense a term superstar is all about ATBB, BB or big hits of at least ONE SINGLE year.If not this then what else superstar is about?
      Govinda and sunny deol were once called superstars only because they gave ATBB BB and highest grossers at that time.
      Hrithik who came way after akshay in year 2000 has far better records than akshay.
      Even someone like Emraan hashmi has given more solo and total blockbusters than akshay.
      If then also you want to call him superstar then ajay is no different
      He has EXACT SAME record as akshay as far as ATBB, BB or highest grossers of one single year are concerend in fact ajay gave his first ever solo blockbuster in his whole career (singham) before Akshay did this year (Rowdy Rathore) Both remakes.

        lol,,

        “”It’s common sense a term superstar is all about ATBB, BB or big hits of at least ONE SINGLE year”””

        If that’s your common sense, then I am bound to conclude that your senses are disordered.

        It’s ALWAYS movies that get the status of hit or bb or atbb and not the actors. Agar actors se hi movies bb or atbb hoti to how could one justify a Jokar after RR, or a Veer, LD, and MAMK after Wanted.

          Kisne kaha hamesha sirf actor se movie chalti hai? a superstar doesn’t mean there will be 100% success record.

          But if you are working for two decades in films as lead actor and after then also you have ZERO ATBB and just 2 BB (that also in year 2007 welcome and first solo Blockbuster in 2012 in your whole career) and again ZERO big hit or ZERO highest grosser of any ONE SINGLE year in WHOLE CAREER. then how the heck you one can be called Superstar. Forget khans or hrithik even govinda and sunny deol had better track records in their prime then akshay in his whole career.

          And as i said if still Akshay fans can tag akshay as superstar then why not Ajay Devgn also who has EXACT SAME RECORD.

    Few questions to ank_16 from a salman fan:
    1. Can Emran Hasmi give four hits in a year?
    answer: even though it’s hard he can if he does 4 or 5 movies in a year.

    2. Can Emran Hasmi give top 3 highest grossers in a year?
    answer: impossible (even having one movie in top 3 is impossibe. forget all three)

    3. Can Emran Hasmi give highest grosser of the year for 8 times? Forget Emran Hsmi can Akki himself do it?
    answer is a big “NO” for both. eight times is too much. lets hope it will be done at least once in their lifetime

    4. Can Emran Hasmi give 3 or 5 all time blockbusters?
    answer is again no not only for emran hasmi but also for Akki. Again lets hope they will have at least one ATBB in their lifetime

    @ank – and he still doesnt have a single biggets grosser of the year, a single atbb, one film that catches the imagination of 121 cr ppl. not one character like prem or chulbul panday that defines its decade.

    also did the careers of akshay and salman start in 2001? i thot it was in 1988/1991?

    @waleed – agar mujhe 90s se nikalna hai to aap logon ko 2000s se nikalna hai. then give a list between 2010 to 2012. agar aap ek decade peechhe ja sakte hain to main do decade peechhe kyun nahin?

    @diva – fans ka naam roshan kar diyaa aapne. kya teer maara hai nishaane par! the fact is akshay can never be a superstar, forget mega star untill at least once he gives a hit that takes the nation by storom. salman has done that 9 times, dilip kumar 8 times, amitabh 6, times, dharmedra 5 times, srk 4 times, hrithik 3 times govinda 1 times sunny deol one time but akshay zero times.

    it means ahandful of ppl (of a certain kind) watch many aakshay film but he has never been a craze of the nation. that ensures he reains a star, not a superstar. may be he has a cult following but as sanjeev proved – so does emraan hashmi.

    if u look at it 1st 10 years of emraans record was better than akshay’s 1st 10 years. emraan ha d ablockbuter in the very 2nd year wit its music bing a rage and the film (murder) having bigger verdict than years biggest veer zaara.

    so we all know wat is akshay ki aukaat.

    I had written one long comment but in the end thought everything will be settled in coming weeks.

    Now u are representing a star as mega star n i will say salman is just a superstar n not a mega star yet (may be after dabangg2’s success)

    Now both khiladi 786 n dabangg2 releasing in non holiday (first week atleast)
    Keeping the advantages such as khiladi (biggest franchise, best music album, awesome trailers etc…. By akshay fans) should outdo any other film including ETT if not second best apart from ETT.

    If it didn’t outgross Dabangg2 week one total (both have free one week run n dabangg2 has cricket matches during its first week as well) then all u akshay fans should stop calling him superstar n if it does outgross dabangg2 then i will start calling him Superstar. Do u all agree?

      First week collection of Khiladi 786 and Dabangg 2 will decide who is bigger, Salman or Akki.

    One person is making 4-5 movies a year and others are making 1 or 2 so where does the comparison stand? Not justified.
    A good business man is who believes in rotating his working capital more in a year.

      It’s true there is no comparison between akki and salman because salman is competing with srk and aamir while akki is competiting with hrithik.

          first answer, where was akshay who was a “B” list actor prior 2007 and atleast you are acknowledging Salman is a Superstar which is his rightful designation along with other two khans and Hritik but except Akshay fans hardly any one recognizes Akshay as superstar forget about Megastar :P

          Once he starts giving All Time Hits then nobody would have problem accepting or recognizing him as a Superstar but just to satisfy your own ego of being akshay fan don’t bombard with statements and articles such as this…

      hahaha Akki and a sureshot ATBB is a joke.
      The movie which could not beat Dabangg would have beaten ETT. Am I missing something?

      salman bacche k saath competition nahi karta. Only competition of salman against srk or aamir is real competition…
      Tell Akki to compete with Hrithik because his real comparison should be with hrithik not the khans. Akki has a good chance to beat krishh 3 in diwali and come prove that he is ahead of hrithik. Lets see if Akki has the guts to do it…

    A long thread … but looking at the names who commented on can make out what they mean even before reading.
    However following sounds unreasonable –
    1. To be a superstar one needs to give ATBB. I think for different stars different parameters are needed. For those doing 1 or 2 movies a year ATBB is an absolute must at least once in 2 years if not more. For someone like Akshay or any other star who does 4-5 movies a year, ATBB is unlikely. However a 2 super hits an year is quite an admirable and sufficient condition.
    Moreover ATBB are rarest of the rare events and never happens only because of a star. However super hits, hits, etc can be driven on star’s shoulder subject to right release strategy.
    2. Despite giving ATBB in 90s, Salman always ranked lower than Govinda, Sunny Deol and SRK in 90s. It’s only in 2000s when other stars are not able to match the scale and success rate that Salman has eventually found a sweet spot in stardom and ranking. His ATBB of 90s is hardly considered to be of any influence to his current stardom. In fact super hits like Ready and ETT has brought him more laurels , though as a movie HAHK and MPK were more admired movies and got tremendous acclaims to its directors, heroines, supporting actors, musicians, producers, etc
    3. Akshay and Ajay by there sheer volume has been more successful than Aamir or SRK in last few years despite the latter being trendsetters and stars of many ATBB.
    4. Salman is a unique case where he has been very very successful in last 2 years and is in his pink of his career. His dream run is spectacular and cannot be beaten till he keeps delivering super hits and blockbusters. However just like he came to No 1 by 3 successive blockbusters and the previous No 1, Aamir Khan, remained out of scene…the same may happen whenever he eventually gets beaten (i do not know by whom) when Salman gives a flop or two and star next to him starts giving blockbusters.

      Salman in 90’s was always behind Govinda srk sunny. LOL. in which world you are leaving dude? Gorilla? :D

      SRK made his mark only after half of decade passed in 90’s in 1995 with DDLJ.

      and Salman Khan was handsdown the most successful superstar of overall whole 90’s decade. In whole decade he had got MOST NUMBER OF HIGHEST GROSSERS OR MAXIMUM NUMBER OF HITS Whether by BOI http://boxofficeindia.com/showProd.php?itemCat=126&catName=MTk5MC0xOTk5

      or Film Information http://bollybusiness.wordpress.com/2010/06/02/boxoffice-lions-of-90s-based-on-nahtas-verdicts/

    Gorilla, for akshay to be superstar Its not only about ZERO ATBB,

    Akshay’s first Blockbuster in WHOLE CAREER was also in year 2007 WELCOME and his FIRST SOLO BLOCKBUSTER in WHOLE CAREER he gave only this year 2012 (Rowdy Rathore),

    And even HIGHEST GROSSER of ONE SINGLE YEAR in WHOLE CAREER that also its ZERO.

    Akshay doesn’t need any hits/blockbuster/atbb to be declared as megastar, he just need presence of few pr’s, few (mostly are) dumb fans on blogs along with their nara “akshsay kumari superstari, action ka baap, disasters ki maa aur flops ka uncle humra alshay kumar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ohh!!how did i miss this thread.akki is definately a megastar or whatever term one wants to use.but in no way can he be compared to salman and srk.i hate srk while i like akki but i have to admit it that akki cannot be compared to srk and salman who have given multiple ATBB’s and many highest grossers of the year.salman has 3ATBB as per boi while srk has 2.akki can be compared to aamir but here to aamir has the edge as he has given 3ATBB of which 2 were solo nd he has 3 highest grossers of the year.IMO if overall career graphs are tallied akki will come at no.4 after aamir while srk and salman hold joint top position as salman has advantage at home while srk rules overseas.

    Salman has to give another 3 blockbusters n srk normal hits if they have to be joint leader coz srk wins gands down ww grossers n overseas where as salman is mighty in domestic considering their overall career.
