Gorilla’s Star Ranking 2012- Khan kingdom breaks!

Disclaimer: My ranking takes into account BO performance of 2012 and current public perception as per my observation. This ranking does not consider potential of a star but the result that stars are able to deliver.

Female Star Ranking TOP 10:

[1] Katrina Kaif – She is the HIT machine of Bollywood with consistent HITS. She gave one Blockbuster (ETT), One Hit (Jab Tak Hai Jaan) and one super hit item song (Agneepath). With her cent percent record…she is an undisputed queen.

[2] Sonakshi Sinha – Climbs to No 2 despite a disaster in Joker. She gave two blockbusters – Rowdy Rathore and Dabangg2 and one Hit – Son Of Sardaar. She is a strong contender for No1 next year.

[3] Priyanka Chopra – Rocked in Agneepath and then with Barfi which was a super hit. She also released her music album which is triple platinum winner already.

[4] Vidya Balan – She has given blockbusters on her own like Kahaani. Her next with Eimraan Hashmi titled “Ghanchakkar”, is keenly awaited.

[5] Kareena Kapoor – Heroine opened very well and showed her stardom. However the movie did not sustain. She shined in another Hit- Talaash. Her item number in Dabangg2 is a hit but not a craze the way Munni was.

[6] Asin – She is the luckiest after Katrina for working only with the best of the stars and getting hits. Bol Bachchan’s success cements her position. If we combine her South Indian hits, then she may be No 1 female star of Indian film industry. She also starred in KHILADI 786 which had super hit songs and the movie got her decent success.

[7] SriDevi – Though she is beyond ranking…her super success with English Vinglish brought her right along with contemporary heroines. However with no future lineup, this may end up as a flash in the pan.

[6] Bipasha Basu – Thanks to Raaz 3, she moves 3 places up. She was the soul of the movie and got tremendous appreciation. Raaz 3 is a super hit and a lot of credit is given to Bips.

[7] Deepika Padukone – Made a comeback with Cocktail. She retains her position, however she needs to give more hits to climb up.

[9] Anushka Sharma – She was the live wire of Jab Tak Hai Jaan…her sole hit this year. A promising actress and will rise up.

[10] Parineeti – She pips out Ileana from top 10 thanks to her stellar performance in Ishaqzaade, which is now a hit. With good films in her kitty…she is here to stay and rise.

Male Star Ranking Top 10

[1] Salman Khan – No surprises here. Dabangg Khan is super strong now with 5 back to back Blockbusters and is still seen as Dabangg in every film. His success with Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg2 ensured that he remains No 1 for some time to come. With just one film releasing next year…he will be missed in 2013.

[2] Akshay Kumar – Arguably The Star of 2012. He created a unique record of achieving close to Rs 425 Cr nett from 5 films that released in 2012. When phenomenal success like Rowdy Rathore comes within 2 months after Housefull2, sudden swing happens. With One blockbuster (Rowdy Rathore), two super hits (Housefull2 and OMG[supporting role]), One average success (Khiladi 786) and one disowned flop (Joker), Akshay has given high hopes for 2013. With three films in 2013 – Special 26, OUATIM2 and Boss…Akshay has right mix of good films in his kitty.

[3] Ajay Devgn- After his two 100+ Cr Hits with BolBachchan and Son of Sardaar, he is in top 3 now. He should avoid movies like Tezz and work on his fan base to climb further.

[4] Ranbir Kapoor – He is now India’s No 4 Star and probably the best actor in top 5. His acclaimed performance in Barfi and extraordinary BO result of Barfi gets his extra bonus points. A landmark film in Hindi Cinema and a blockbuster, Barfi despite its controversies will be remembered for decades. His last film Rockstar was also a superhit and won him several awards last year. He is doing what Aamir and Hrithik wants to do every year. This ranking is another reminder that quality (Akshay, Ajay are u listening?) and release frequency (Aamir Hrithik are you listening?) if managed well can do wonders. Take a bow Ranbir.

[5] Shahrukh Khan – He slips 2 positions down. SRK was never a star who did few films. His absence from the scene has cost him his No 3 position and for the first time since last 15 years in the history of Hindi Cinema, SRK is at the bottom of Top 5. His last with Yash Chopra was a solid Hit and 100+Cr grosser. However the film did little to be remembered except that it was Yash Chopra’s Last.

[6] Aamir Khan – No major release since last 2 years, now catches up with Aamir Khan. He slips 4 positions down from his previous No 2 position. His 3I remains the biggest hit and his talk show ‘Satyamev Jayate’ was the most talked show about ever in India (even more than KBC). His solo release Talaash was a hit but could not cross 100Cr mark. With no other release to support his stardom, Aamir needs to work more. His Dhoom3 can ensure that he returns in Top 5, though it looks difficult unless D3 crosses 3I.

[7] Hrithik Roshan- Despite Agneepath he looks vulnerable at this rank because all stars above him are capable of delivering more hits. He is one star whose ranking depends on how other star’s movie are doing primarily because he does very few films. A classic case of potential going waste. Good news for him is that stars below him are not capable of removing him from this position esp when he has films like Krrish3, Paani and Bang Bang in his lineup.

[8] Eimraan Hashmi – Thanks to the super hit performance of Raaz 3, Eimraan is ahead of Saif. He is the most exciting star and next Akshay Kumar of Bollywood. His fan following is Huge and his release frequency of films are very good. His choice of movies are not very good and movies like Murder 3 is not sufficient. A lot depends on Ghanchakkar with Vidya which is an A project for him.

[9] Saif Ali Khan – The unluckiest. Despite being most talented, he delivers duds at wrong time in his career. Agent Vinod was a downer but he was back with Cocktail which was a HIT.

[10] Imraan Khan – Imraan has a knack of picking right script…maybe his Maamu choses his next movie. Luckiest star of Bollywood. :) However to grow from here he has to beat some stalwarts. Unfortunately he is absent from the scene when heavyweights like SRK and Aamir are absent, and have opened gates got new stars. His next releases are exciting and mix of masala and class.

Moral of the story: 2012 was the year of masses. Single screen got prominence and now everyone realizes that without the masses and single screen performance, a movie cannot be a blockbuster. KHAN kingdom main sendh lag gayi. Akshay and Ajay are now ruling along with the King Salman. Period.

    Gorilla and All Ng members

    This ranking presented here looks like Present Ranking based on last 3 years(Sharp) BO impact.

    if it is ranking of year 2012 just 2012 , then there need to be a few corrections

    Gorilla THIS YEAR

    Hritik is above srk and Emraan is above Aamir . Morever John Abraham is ahead of Saif as he was in lead alongwith Akshay in HF2.

    other questions, how much weightage should Sanjay Dutt get for Agneepath. Final verdict of Dabangg and K786. these all things are required to be considered for an Excact BO ranking of 2012

    hamara to mahacrap lage ga phir aapko, us main to abhi aur bhi correction honi hai

    Come on people sachchai se darte kyon ho

    2006 main even after a good bo performance ,Akshay was lagged behind by Hritik, Abishek, Aamir Khan, Sanjay dutt & Shahid Kapoor at BO.
    to ab kya main rone lag jaoo

    is list ko dimaag main sochne ka maza hi kuch aur hota if shahid & abishek would have been replaced by Srk & Akshay . Top 5 main saare bade bade Hum-Umar Star. but I preffered to stay with truth

    kab hogi aakhir sachchai ki jeet,
    please change ur mentality

    2013-14 will be owned by Hrithik Roshan with Krrish 3 and Bang Bang.

    as per wiki John was at equal lead with Akshay , though film collected on shoulders of akshay.

    Sanjay Dutt shared a great part of success in Agneepath though he is not in lead.

    ***Dany wasn’t an A grade Hero , Sanjay Dutt is
    ***Dany was not there in Agneepath’s poster Sanjay Dutt shared equal image in Agneepath theatrical poster
    ***Dany craze was not there when people went to see agneepath where as sanjay dutt’s craze cannot be denied.

    Sanjay Dutt should get some weightage in this Blockbuster movie.

    Rest Agree to you

    ofcourse everyone’s gonna have their own versions of these rankings. Agree with most of ur list, except a couple of positions.

    Ajay might have had a couple of big hits this year, but the average producer would still take Aamir, Hrithik and Shahrukh over him. Case in point, you won’t have a Tezz-like box office outcome with those 2 stars.

    Also, Akshay’s Joker should go against him. Similarly, K786 did IMO pretty poorly considering its genre. A Talaash-type movie does 30-40% more than that. On the same note, Dhoom2 would be considered a big dissapointment if it only matched Rowdy Rathore total. So, if his low cant get as low as Akshay’s and his high is definitely much higher, than he is a bigger star than Akshay.

    Here’s my editted list:

    1. Salman
    2. Aamir
    3. Akshay
    4. Ranbir
    5. SrK
    6. Hrithik
    7. Ajay
    8. Emraan
    9. Saif
    10. Imran

    Joginder Tuteja’s Q/A on Indicine:

    Q- If Salman Khan is Number One, who is the next best and can anyone beat him? – Yasin

    A- Shahrukh Khan is the next best after Salman today. Between them, Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar, any of the four has a chance to be the Number One over next couple of years.
