Top Five Heroes of Bollywood in 2012
Fasel | December 6, 2012, 12:12 AM | 40 comments | 8 views


The year 2012 has proved to be commercially successful for the Bollywood. For some stars like Salman and Shahrukh it was like any other year but for Ajay and Akshay, it was a much needed boon. Audience loved what they brought and we chose out few stars who have ruled the audience throughout the year.

Salman Khan
Shahrukh Khan
Ranbir Kapoor
Akshay Kumar
Ajay Devgn

Salman Khan: Salman Khan is masses’ favorite and it shows off with the business his movies perform, his brand endorsements, his cameo in SOS for friendship’s sake with Ajay Devgn.

“Ek Tha Tiger” is the highest grosser of the year with 186 crore in the kitty and I don’t see the trend breaking in next three weeks. The movie harnessed so much business that even their old camper- Shahrukh Khan could not get them.

Ek Tha Tiger Movie grossed first day collection for 31.93 crore and overall earned 186 crore.

Also, lined up is his home production, “Dabangg 2” with which standards are again high, Salman has truly become synonym to success.

Akshay Kumar Akshay Kumar appeared in 5 movies this year. Three hits, one flop and the 5th one is an anticipated hit. He is the actor who has been riding the winning horse all through this year. His movies “Housefull 2” (Akshay’s first to gross 100 crore) and “Rowdy Rathore” were back to back super hits with both of them grossing over 100 crore business.

The “Joker” came and went, Akshay’s feathers remained unruffled. With “Oh My God!” an above average hit, he was back in game again. And now with “Khiladi 786″, slated to release this Friday we can dare say that he is set to end the year on a celebratory note and 2012 has been a year that he is going to cherish for long.

Housefull 2 The movie started with 13.25 crore on the first weekend and ended on 100 crore by the third week. Rowdy Rathore The movie collected a 15.06 crore on opening day and made 133 crore in the domestic market only.

Shahrukh Khan: Be it a street guitarist or major Samar Pratap Singh in the Indian Army’s Bomb Demolition Squad, he struck the chords of the audience heart and set them ablaze. Shahrukh Khan’s “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” was the most hyped movie of year. Viewer’s heart beat went wild when Yash ji announced that it will be his last directorial venture.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan The first day collection of the movie was 12.50 crore and still running at the multiplexes and theaters. It crossed the 100 crore mark by the beginning of the next week.

Also flamed the movie was the controversy between Yash Raj and ADF under Ajay Devgn as both were slated to release on same day.

Ajay Devgn Ajay Devgn though was a part of the multi-starrer movies, but both the movies “Bol Bachchan” and “Son Of Sardar” worked financially well at the box office. Plus, both were 100 crore grossers.

Ajay played versatile characters, from an enthusiast English learner village head to sophisticated Sikh NRI. People loved Ajay’s light comedy and welcomed him out of intense roles.

Bol Bachhan With opening of around 11.25 crore the movie garnered 100 crore. Son of Sardar SOS opened with 8.50 crore and earned 100 crore a little after the third week. The movie is still running in screens.

Ranbir Kapoor: Playing the deaf-mute guy in “Barfi!” really worked for Ranbir Kapoor, so much that without saying a single word he was hailed to the entry to Oscars. People kept their tongues wagging, but the movie has just positioned him more solidly in the Bollywood and a “look in the eye” chance to the “Reigning Khans.” So we have talent, brains and good choice of movies from Ranbir.

BarfiThe movie’s first weekend collection was a 8.56 crore but the movie garnered overall 106 crore.

  12. sahildiksha

    If D2 fails and k786 averages then both sallu and akki will interchange their positions for 2012.

  13. sahildiksha

    Running time of Dabangg2 is under 2 hours.

    1. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

      what are you saying? 30 minutes are song and probably about 10 minutes of credits rolling before n after the movie…SO the movie is less than 80 minutes?

  14. Serenzy

    It’s Better Not To Post Such Articles Far Away from Reality and Making a Fool of Oneself.

  19. FS

    As per zoom sohail khans next is named as “Radhe” – name is enough to create mass hysteria… Another remake, another atbb and he may officially retire frm any ranking to accommodate his close buddies ajay n Aamir in top5 :P

  20. VED-Z

    2012 STAR STATUS at Boxoffice

    BOXOFFICE RANKING NOT STAR POWER

    CASE 1

    if D2 will be just Blockbuster not ATBB then ( assuming
    K786 as Hit/Superhit )

    1. Akshay Kumar
    2. Salman Khan
    3. Ajay Devgan
    4. Ranbir Kapoor
    5. Hritik Roshan/Aamir Khan ( Provided Talaash Superhit or above)

    Waiting List – Shahrukh Khan/ Saif Ali Khan/ Emraan Hashmi / Aayushmaan

    Case 2

    Dabangg as ATBB ( K786 as just Hit)

    1. Salman Khan
    2. Akshay Kumar
    3. Ajay Devgan
    4. Ranbir Kapoor
    5. Hritik Roshan/Aamir Khan

    ***

    1. jealous hater of srk

      First u hav to mention hw many releases star had second taalash will earn less than jhtj as per current trending dat too without clash so hw cn aamir be in top 5

  21. VED-Z

    Remember – The ranking I provided is just for 2012, it is yearly ranking

    not continouse ranking based on last few years, NO !

  22. Ghost Rider

    Top 5 Actors
    1. Salman Khan Is The Heart Of Mass Plexes!
    2. Akshay Kumar Who Gave almost 4 movies this year with One Flop And Else Are Hit Or Blockbuster & One Is On The Way
    3. Ajay Devgan Bcoz Who Gave Two 100 Crore This Year #BolBachchan & #Sos was released in 1950 screens while JTHJ is about 2500 screens.
    4. Shah Rukh Khan
    5. Hrithik Roshan/Ranbeer Kapoor

  23. VED-Z

    ghost rider the ranking u just gave might be the star power for 2012 or favorites or loveable etc list………….. but if one has to make a BO Ranking list then Ranbir/Hritik are ahead of Srk. And Akshay has the chances to be no.1 if D2 wouldnt reach atbb status. Remember BO is based on verdict not on net.

    else for star power or loveable for 2012 ur list is correct

    1. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

      If BO is based on verdict only, then how come there is no affect of JOKER?
      The blockbuster status of RR is balanced by disaster JOKER. So Akki has only one superhit till now i.e. H2.
      Akki will be #1 if k786 and D2 get the same verdict or K786 gets a better verdict than D2.

  24. Ghost Rider

    @VED-Z Agree With u bhai. i m giving This Rankings On The Basis Of StarPower, Hrithik Who Has Gave Only One Hit This Year While Ranbeer Had Also!
    :-))
    And #Khiladi786 is On The Way, Tomorrow Will be Blast On The Earth! :))

  25. FS

    Somebody rightly said tht akshay fans always use, if, but, than, like this, like that kind of excuses… Itna ghuma phirake bolne se to acha hai directly boldo na, ke aapke hisaabse akshay no 1 hai… Sharm aati hai kya? Kich bolne se pehle if, ya but ke excuses dena zaroori hsi? Ya bina excuses ke declare nahin kar sakte?

  26. Tippu Sultan

    I can only rank Salman as a boxoffice no.1 if any of his films face a stiff opposition as was the case with JTHJ and SOS. For now no.1 is SRK followed by Ajay Devgan.

  27. dr.nick

    if dabangg 2 is blockbuster and collects more than 160 cr then salman is clearly the numero uno.1.salman khan,,2.akki,,3.hrithik..4.ranbir,,5.ajay/srk

  28. Tippu Sultan

    Not so fast Dr.nick! For Salman to be considered number one his movies should face a tough opposition and become at least hits like JTHJ in the face of SOS. All Salman’s films are one-man shows and release on holidays. That does not in any way indicate star power. Salman is still far away from SRK boxofficewise .

    1. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

      What did Srk’s solo super hyped movies (that too released in big holidays) Ra One and Don 2 collect? Or may be himesh reshamiya is competition for srk…HAHA this one, you got it right.

  29. dr.nick

    ^^^thats your opinion.box office is the only criteria to define stardom.actually more than box office its footfall which defines stardom but due to lack of statistical records one should consider only box office.stop giving sissy excuses like clash,holidays etc.ra1 nd don 2 had no clash still couldnt cross ghajini.nobody had stopped others from releasing film on eid or christmas.kiske baap ne roka hai.aur tippu sultan ji,aapki sultanat mein hi srk can be ahead of salman,khuda ki sultanat mein nahi.rest is your opinion.cant fight that.
