Star Ranking – Jan 2013 Saif, Deepika climbs + All eyes on @akshaykumar and #Special26
Gorilla | February 5, 2013, 7:07 PM | 59 comments | 1 views


Disclaimer: My ranking takes into account BO performance till Jan 2013 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] Deepika Padukone – Climbs 3 position up thanks to her super hit Race2 which rocked the country in Jan 2013.

[5] Vidya Balan – She has given blockbusters on her own like Kahaani. Her next with Eimraan Hashmi titled “Ghanchakkar”, is keenly awaited. Lack of movies may see her dropping down a bit.

[6] 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.

[7] 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.

[8] 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.

[9] 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.

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

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, that released in fag end of 2012, ensured that he remains No 1 for some time to come. With just one film releasing this 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. 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. His Special 26 is looking special movie and its success may determine Akshay’s further growth in ranking.

[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] Saif Ali Khan – He climbs one position thanks to the super hit Race2. The movie opened primarily due to Saif. After two back to back super hits, Saif is BACK.

[8] 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. He falls on position below.

[9] 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 Ek thi Daayan is not sufficient. A lot depends on Ghanchakkar with Vidya which is an A project for him.

[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.

  1. waleed jawaid

    agree with most of ur rankings.>!! but where is john abraham..??? he should be above imraan khan at least .!! two consecutive superhits..!! housefull 2 and race 2 though he was supporting in hf2 but in race 2 he was one of the lead.>!!
    and emraan hashmi should be above saif at least..!!
    on the contrary SPECIAL 26 is carrying excellent reports
    i donot believe this kiaara sandhu on twitter but still dil tou bacha hai ji..he tweeted akshay deserves a national award .>!! every member of the film has apprecieted…even komal has said it is carrying excellent feedback..so fingers crossed lets hope for the best

  2. Gorilla

    Waleed, John was not a co-lead in Race2. He was a supporting actor. If only he had given a performance that would have made audience notice more, then he could have been considered a lead parallel to Saif. In the movie Saif towered over him.

    His I, Me, Myself may see him in the race.

    Let’s hope your wishes come true for Special 26.

  3. waleed jawaid

    with shooutout at wadaala i think he may surpass some of them!!

  4. shabbira.1

    emraan is nt the lead of murder 3….

  5. Phantom

    Hmm looks like this year finally akshay has topped the list of tier 3 stars. Although aftab Shivdasani gav a tough competition by giving bigger opening than Joker with 1920 sequel

    Good 2013 and akshay can finally be promoted to tier 2 star.

    Woah self made tier 2 star. Thats something

  6. Alfa.one

    I repeat the marvelos comment from FS

    it is SIN to compare akki sorry akki SIR, khiladi bhaiyya with any khan from khan trio, leave aside top ranker.

    1. Gorilla

      Alfa, right now there is only one khan….Salman khan. Other khans are behind Khiladi and singham at the moment. Digest kar lo yeh baaat. Raat ko neend achche se aayegi.
      Quoting FS here is a joke.

  7. Aditya007

    lol….Still SRK in race from back btw Akshay Really above SRK and this year I’m sure he’ll again toped the list with his finest performances !

  8. ank_16n

    yeah i agree..the Top star in this ranking was going through the Worst (Flops) Patch(7 years)that any Actor on this planet earth can ever witness :)
    let him enjoy 2-3 years of Success u never know when he had to take a 10 year vanvas :)

  9. AwesomeAkshay

  10. ank_16n

    as for the 5th rank star….He shud release his movies only in OVERSEAS as that way he can compete with other star….
    waise bhi ….no body knows to how long those ALMOST EMPTY EXPRESS will reach CHENNAI—-before HAPPY NEW YEAR or not :)

    1. jealous hater of srk

      Rofl
      Look akki sir fan is talking empty hall hahahahahahaha
      So called star of year movie 2 films joker and k786 couldn’t cross life time collection of jhtj
      And talking abt overseas did d total collection of all movies of akki sir crossd life time of jhtj
      Simple request to akki sir is nt release movie nly bt bettr atleast he cn directly release on Tv atleast it wil earn producers money rather than going into loss and also help them befr he disowns the films

    2. Gorilla

      Ank….chennai express will be a 200 cr grosser….things will change in 2 nd half of the year.

      1. ank_16n

        SRK + Rohit Shetty combo….and Success…sorry i have stopped DREAMING

  11. ank_16n

    I wud still Consider Aamir Khan in TOP 3..!!

    1. Gorilla

      Potential wise, I will too consider….but other stars are more visible and successful recently…so Kya karein ab….

  12. ank_16n

    haha…..
    mujhe ye soch kar hasi aa gayi ki agar NO.5 Star on this list will stop releasing his films in Overseas then what will happen…….hahaha.. :)

  13. Aditya007

    JOHS,
    lol…. I think You shouldn’t try for in case of JTHJ 101cr lifetime nett .

  14. Gorilla

    Question to all: if SRK delivers a 200 cr netter with Chennai Express, will he be back in top 3, or be No 1 replacing Salman?

    1. sanjeev – radhey – 6th bb in a row

      Answer to Gorilla: if srk delivers a 200 cr netter with Chennai Express, he will still be ranked 5th because srk delivering 200 cr means other stars like salman, akki, ajay, aamir, hrithik, ranbir have delievered 250 crores net.

      1. Alfa.one

        Hare radhey hey radhe…………… infact chiranjeevi is top ranker, so be be happy with that.

      2. jealous hater of srk

        Same as u said D2 wil surely cross 200cr

  15. Alfa.one

    TASHAN…………… Tashan all are missing u, please come !!!!

    All these guys, so called Akki SIR’s fans were hiding somewhere before the release of JOKER and then started making tall claims like SIR is coming again in khiladi series, the blockbuster franchise and bla bla bla…. after a gap of so many years and will give ATBB and what not. After K786 went on to become biggest blockbuster in the history of Indian cinema, the next ATBB is s26…!!! May Almighty fulfil their wild dreams……!

    Tashan jaldi aao yaar, aapki kami bahot mehsoos ho rahi hai.

  16. Alfa.one

    @Gorilla- I was not talking about saif ali khan or imran khan !!!!

    I repeat the joke which unfortunately for u guys is reality.

    @phantom – dude u rock!

    @gorilla – “My ranking takes into account BO performance till Jan 2013 and current public perception as per my observation”

    ur r taking BO performance till jan 13 but since wen?

    if u r taking since jan 2010 – jan 2013 (last 3 years?) then sharukh, ajay and even ranbeer will be ahead of akshay.

    if u r taking since jan 2011 – jan 2013 (last two years) then sharukh, ajay, ranbeer and even hrithik will be ahead of akshay.

    unless u r taking a non round figure of 5th april 2012 – jan 2013 (which is wen akshay was pulled out of the doldrums with the multistarrer houseful).

    in fact u made a mistake. u shud have taken april 2012 – july 2012 period star rankings. by that time joker and khiladi 786 had not even released.

    AKSHAY KUMAR AT NO 2 MY FOOT!

    any current/recent star ranking takes into account 3 years. here is the chart for 3 years (jan 2010- jan 2013)

    salman – 4 blockbusters 1 atbb

    ajay – 2 blockbusters, 1 super hit, 3 hits,

    akshay – 1 blockbuster, 1 super hit, 1 hit,

    so how is akshay ahead of ajay?

    1. Gorilla

      Danish,
      This ranking is not as scientific as what you or others want to make.
      This ranking considers movies that has been released recently. names of those movies are mentioned along with every star. So you can make out the period.

      Akshay is ahead of Ajay because of two back to back super hits like Housefull2 and Rowdy Rathore. Akshay Kumar created a unique record of achieving close to Rs 425 Cr nett from 5 films that released in 2012. With One blockbuster (Rowdy Rathore), two super hits (Housefull2 and OMG[supporting role]), One average success (Khiladi 786) and one disowned flop (Joker), Akshay was arguably the star of 2012.
      This pips him over Ajay who have two super hits in the form of Bol Bachchan and Son of Sardaar. Ajay should avoid movies like Tezz and work on his fan base to climb further.
      In fact Himmatwala can actually see Ajay become No 2 or No 1 depending on how big the success will be as it will be his third consecutive 100 Cr grosser at quicker pace compared to his competition.

  19. ank_16n

    @danish–can u please answer me who was No. 1 to No.5 from 2000-2009 period…

    :)
    :)
    :)

  20. danish

    @ank16- u ar sking me to do the very thing i am ridiculing – taking selective periods to judge starpower.

    i can tell u wat was the ranking till 2009 ( u can take it from 1988-2009 and if u feel its a selective period u can take it as ranking for akshay and his contemporaries since 13th may 2013 wen the 1st film released. now that wont be a selective period wud it?)

    and the ranking wud be

    1. salman – 3 atbbs, 2 bbs, 6 super hits, 10 hits and many half successes

    2. sharukh – 1 atbb, 2 bbs, 4 superhits, 6 hits etc

    3. aamir – 2 atbbs, 4 superhits etc

    4. ajay/askahy – who wants to count chillar

    sorry yahaan bhi (till 2009) akshay top 3 se baahar

  21. danish

    @ank – and yes – i want the names of 17 akshay hits – all with boi verdicts.

  22. danish

    as far as i know the akshay hits between 2000-2009 are

    1. andaz

    2. mujhse shaadi karogi (this opne witrh salman helped akshay cross 15 cr and move to ‘star’ rank)

    3. phir hera pheri

    4. bhagambhag

    5. namaste london

    6. hey baby

    7. bhool bhulaiya

    8. welcome

    9. singh is king

    ek-aadh bhool gaya hoon to bata dena!

  23. ank_16n

    Danish—-
    but i want to take Decade by Decade bcoz acc. to me Salman was not a SUPERSTAR from the period 2000-2009..

    He had only 6 Hits or above verdicts in 2000-2009…

    While even a Hrithik Roshan who Debuted in 2000….was a bigger star from 2000-2009…whether Salman fans agree or not….

    saying consider from 1988 bcoz u know that ur every comment will fall flat if u consider 2000-2009…

    eg… Amitabh Bachchan is not a superstar any more….
    He was back in 70′s and 80′s
    but some will consider his 70′s 80′s record to say he is a superstar….
    similarly u are using salman’s 90′s record to say he was a superstar in 2000′s while he was not even a superstar..!!

    1. Adrakh chacha

      akki sir is also not a superstar from August 2012 to feb 2013(till date), because he dont have any hit in this period.

      1. sanjeev – radhey – 6th bb in a row

        Hahaha good reply.

    2. sanjeev – radhey – 6th bb in a row

      @ ank: amitabh bachchan is not a superstar anymore because he can’t give big hits in future also. Salman was a superstar in 2000s as well because he gave big hits in 1990s and after 2009.
      However Akki was not a superstar before 2007. Thanks to salman’s the then girlfriend Katrina who gifted Akki his first blockbuster.

  24. ank_16n

    i will consider 2000-2009……1st
    lets see i will correct myself—
    If we don’t include SEMIHITS

    1. Akshay Kumar—9 Hits or above Verdicts
    2. SRK– 8 Hits or above Verdicts
    3. Aamir Khan–6 Hits or above Verdicts
    4. Hrithik Roshan —-5 Hits or above Verdicts.
    5. Salman khan–4 Hits or above Verdicts and Ajay Devgan–4 Hits or above Verdicts

    now i will give u the movie names….

    Akshay kumar–
    1. andaz

    2. mujhse shaadi karogi

    3. phir hera pheri

    4. bhagambhag

    5. namaste london

    6. hey baby

    7. bhool bhulaiya

    8. welcome

    9. singh is king

    Salman Khan–

    1. Mujhse Shaadi Karogi(1st hit after 5 years due to Akshay kumar)

    2. No Entry

    3. Partner

    4. Wanted

    Abhishek Bachchan–
    1. Dhoom

    2. Bunty Aur Babli

    3. Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna

    4. Dhoom:2

    5. Guru

    there is no point of Talking further ….we can see….Salman khan was even lesser star than Abhishek Bachchan..!!

    1. jealous hater of srk

      Lol in wonderland dream works
      Srk in 2000-09 if i remember correctly
      1>Mohabattien
      2.K3g
      3.Devdas
      4.Khnh
      5.VZ
      6.MNH
      7.Kank doubtful
      8.Don
      9.0S0
      10.Chak de
      11.RBNJ
      So jst becus akki sir fans wants akki to be top in atleast one decade they go to wonderland!!!

  25. ank_16n

    Abhishek bachchan had 5 hits during 2000-2009
    while Salman had 4 hits during 2000-2009…

    so if Abhishek is not a superstar than forget Salman khan being even a STAR..!!

    1. sanjeev – radhey – 6th bb in a row

      @ank: abhisekh had 5 hits in a decade salman has 5 blockbusters in 3 years.

  26. ank_16n

    now if u see the 4 hits of Salman khan during 2000-2009….

    Mujhese Shaadi Karogi—Starred Akshay kumar as well and Salman gave a hit after 5 years so Credit goes to Akshay(who also had 1 more song than Salman Khan in the movie)

    No Entry—Starred Anil Kapoor while salman had a 30 min role(even Akshay had 1 hour 5 min role in OMG)

    Partner

    Wanted

  27. ank_16n

    and since u don’t consider OMG as Akshay movie then sorry
    i have to remove No Entry from salman hits so salman had 3 hits durinf 2000-2009..!!

  28. danish

    @ank 16 – so basically u r a cheat who is selectively taking what u consider salman’s bad phase (they may not have been so) and then u wanna compare to wat u think is akshay’s best phase (again iot may not have been so).

    u cant be a superstar between 1989-2000 then not be superstar between 2000-2009, then again be a superstar between 2009-2013

    by ur logic if u think akshay is a superstar (i dont think so) then was he not a superstar between july 2012 – to october 2012 (between joker and OMG).

    W as akshay a superstar between 2006-2008 and then not a superstar between 2008 to 2012 (according to u i am sking. according to me akshay was never a superstar and willm never never be untill he has a couple of atbbs and a few biggest hits of the year, basically having a few films that were the rage of the times, which will never be.)

    u can say salman wasnt a superstar till 1988 and may not be a superstar after say 15 years, but u cant say he wasnt a superstar in between.

    amitabh wasnt a superstar before 1973 and has not been a superstar since 1992 (though he stopped givingh big hits in 1983, he still basked in past glory) as for salman the story of his glory refuses to end after 25 years.

  29. ank_16n

    so….4 months without a good success is Equal to 9 years of Bad Phase….good logic..!!

    for u salman can be a superstar(though he is not)..!!

    see in first 5 years of their careers no one can become a superstar…..
    so untill 1994 salman, SRK, Akshay can’t be considered a superstar
    after 1994–
    no Semi-Hits included..!!
    salman had 5 Hits(2 solo Hits)
    SRK had 5 Hits(3 solo Hits)
    Akshay had 3 Hits(2 solo Hits)
    Aamir had–1 Hit(1 solo Hit)

    so What special did Salman did while others didn’t to Achieve Superstar Tag ..???

    2nd
    From 2000-2009
    Salman had 4 Hits
    SRK had 8 Hits
    Akshay had 9 Hits
    Aamir had 6 Hits….

    so what again Salman did while others didn’t to reach Superstar tag..??

  30. Gorilla

    The discussion between Danish and Ank is not relevant to this thread. The time period that they are taking is too long to decide on the stardom. If duration was a factor, Dileep Kumar would never have been out of No1 even today. Public memory is short and star loyalty is more diffused among them now.

  31. danish

    @ank – no i am not comparing 4 months vs 9 years.

    but 4 months was just an example. wud u compare 3 years (without a hit between 2009-2011) for akshay with of salman wen he did not have ahit (say 2000-2002) and thats perhaps the longest salman did not have a clean hit.

    and u can be a superstar in the very 1st year if u have given an atbb, that too in the central male lead of a love story, which is the biggets hit of the year/decade and almost equalled sholays record (despite no substantial ticket price hike for over a decade) .

    and then if u follow it up with super hits saajan (biggetst hit of 1991) and sanam bewafa and many more ‘successes’ the superstar position gets confirmed.

    then after a hitless year (1993) if u give haum aapke hain kaun, the 2nd biggets hit in the histrory of bollywood, the biggest ever solo hero hit in the history of bollywood, the biggets hit of the decade of the 90s, whose inflation unadjusted collection are not beateb for 7 years and inflation adjusted collections are not beaten for 19 years then u can be a legend in the 6th year of ur career.

    and u are asking at special did salman do. uncle mere two of his hits in the 1st 5 years were atbbs. are u saying hahk and mohra, mpk and sabse bada khiladi were hits of the same level?

    aur sabse badi baat – mere cheatercock – if salman had 5 hits till 2000 and 4 hits in 2000-2009 then he shud have 9 hits. but ur maths seems weak here is a list of salman hits and above

    1. mpk
    2. saajan
    3. sanam bewafa
    4. hahk
    5. karan arjun
    6. jeet
    7. judwa
    8. kkhh (extended special appearence much bigger tthan akshay in OMG. and bachchan in roti kapda aur makaan)
    9. pyaar kiya to darna kya
    10 hum saath saath hain
    11 biwi no 1
    12 baaghban (special appearence0
    13 mujhse shaadi karogi
    14 no entry
    15 partner
    16 wanted

    kitne chor aur beimaan ho sakte hain akshay ke fans.

    @gorilla – if public memory is short then only the fate of a star’s last film shud decide his standing and based on that khiladi 786 proves kahsya is a flop star and even saif (race 2) is ahead of him.

    1. Gorilla

      Danish, While preparing this list i am keeping all stars with their release strategy giving them allowances for combination of quality over frequency (example Aamir khan, Hrithik), frequency over quality (example Ajay, Akshay), genre (Ranbir), Fan base (Salman, Akshay, SRK, Aamir, Ranbir), frequent hits within span of few months, flops (Akshay, Ajay, Saif), etc.
      I am also considering 12-14 months (not literally but loosely) as duration and this duration plays a predominant role in determining stardom. I am not saying earlier performance is not relevant…they are but not compared to recent ones.
      Lastly and most importantly, i am also relying on the general perception i receive from non-fan audience (constituting 95% of viewers) in terms of stardom. Here some element of bias can creep in but i try my best to be as objective as possible.

      This is the reason why 75% members of NG are agreeing with me in totality.
      20% have few issues but they are by and large OK.
      Rest 5% do not agree and I can never make them agree.

  33. danish

    @gorilla – so basically u hae taken all ‘criteria’ that benefi akshay kumar. (frequency???? frequent hits within a short span – isnt it same) and still cant make akshay kumar no 1.

    thats how ‘lowly’ a creature akshay is.

    general perception around me for akshay is the biggets looser. all my friends, and their moms hate akshay kumar. can u include that in ur analysis?

    how many mebers does NG have? how did u calculate 75% agree with u? most who have commented on thsi thread ar akshay’s manipulative fans.

    in fact show me one comment by a non akshay fan on this thread who agrees with u. phantom ridiclues you, jealous hater of srk does the same., i got into an argument with ank, alfa.one sarcastically quotes FS, adrakh chacha makes fun of akki sir and shabbira makes a neutral ‘corrigendum’ comment on emraan not being lead of murder 3

    on the other hand we all know that ank, aditya, awesomeakshay and waleed javed – all 4 who supported you are open akshay fans.

    yaar ye akshya fans jhhoth, beimaani aur dhokha dhadi kab chhodenge?

    1. Gorilla

      Gorilla’s response to line 1 which i feel is where you should have stopped-
      sorry Danish…but you are shortsighted in your reply here and is seeing my thread under the glass of Akshay Kumar. Of all the factors you have picked only “frequency” and built your argument. What rubbish man!
      Stop picking and plucking as per your wish.
      I cannot change this perception, so sorry….cannot argue with you more.

      Gorilla’s response to line 2 onwards which imo was below my dignity to respond, but responding anyway in your language.
      You are proving to be fan of a ‘lowly’ person.
      General perception on NG is that you are a snob. can you include this in your reply.
      NG have enuf memebrs. I write for them and even if they are only 10, it is for them. Got it!
      Tum bataao na – tum jhhoth, beimaani aur dhokha dhadi kab chhodoge?

  34. danish

    @gorilla – why shud i have stopped after1st line? and not expose another fraud by kahsya fan?

    aur subjective baaton pe mat jao. i will concede all u say is true if u show me one comment by a non akshay fan on this thread in ur support.

    and u were giving data – 75% support!

    kahaan hai 75% log who think akshay is no2 this year?

    if u cant agree that u r into jhooth, beimaani and dhokhadhadi’

    and now give one such clear example (numbers and all) of my dhokhadhadi on thsi thread. i have just exposed ank who says salman has 9 hits till 2009 and u who say 75% on the thread agree with you.

    now its ur turn to expose me with numbers ( not views//opinions)

    1. Gorilla

      Danish,
      Preparing this star ranking is actually tough. I am sure you also know that none can have the right formula.
      My attempt is to bring as much public perception into this as possible. Ofcourse i will not say that my model is flawless but i try to do it honestly.
      You have picked just “frequency” out of other criteria and painted whole analysis as biased towards one actor.
      Look at heroines’ ranking, look at other star’s ranking. There is lot more acceptance there. I am using same criteria for male stars there.

      Also fans of few stars are upset since my last two write-ups when i brought down Aamir and SRK below Akshay and Ajay. They were all gung ho when Aamir was No1 in my ranking for a long time (till Ready released), and No 2 till Rowdy Rathore released. I was first member on NG to openly argue for Salman as No 1 star then. At that time many Aamir fans disagreed. I do not blame them because whenever shift happens it take time for core fans to accept. Just like you now questioning Akki as No 2, one Aamir fan argued that how one film , “Ready” can change the equation, what was the criteria for my judgements, what is your duration, etc. They knew that it was never about one film but the build up of success of salman from Wanted -> Dabangg -> Ready. Thankfully Salman gave Bodyguard and silenced everyone.

      Akshay and Ajay had a fabulous 2012. This is reflecting in this ranking and one has to accept their hard earned success. If S26 flops, Akshay will be out of top 3. Then all will like me. :)

      I am not writing this blog for ppl to like me. I am writing out of honesty and hope gradually ppl will start finding it unbiased and closer to reality if not accurate.

      1. sanjeev – radhey – 6th bb in a row

        @ gorilla: salman gave bodyguard and silenced them.
        So why not let Akki give a blockbuster/ ATBB with special 26 and silence Danish?
        why not let Akki give second biggest grosser of all time (like bodyguard was) with outima, boss or thupakki and slilence Danish?
        Why not let Akki give 5 blockbusters in a row and hatrick of 3 highest grossers and silence Danish?

    @gorilla – “My attempt is to bring as much public perception into this as possible. ”

    thats becoz its easiest to lie about perception – toughest to lie abt data.

    the public perception of akshay is a martial arts experts who becoz of his slimy ‘small time property dealer from paharganj’ looks fits well ito roles where he plays small time crook trying to fleece ppl and cheating on women.

    thats why families rarely venture out for akshay’s film. thats why i dont know of a single female akshay fan. thats why he has not been able to give a single film that was the rage of the year, forget rage of its times.

    any other perception of akshay – as a comic genius, as an innovative thinker on acting, as a versatile actor are all in the heads of a handful of fans and are not borne out by boxofficedata.

    1. Gorilla

      Perceptions can differ buddy. Whatever you are telling is not a general perception.
      BTW, it is toughest to lie about perception.
      But then perception is hardly an important criteria in my ranking, so why break head on this.

  36. danish

    @gorilla – that ppl were upset with u explains why they are not supporting ur views on this thread. but it doesnt explain why u lied saying 75% pl are supporting u on this thread, and now accepting they are not and giving me the reason for it. (which cud be true for many but the fact remains there is no clear indication akshay is ahead of ajay, or has ever been ahead of ajay at box office at any point in last 22 years.

    as for comparing akshay with sharukh, though i hate sharukh, its a joke to compare akshay with him.

    and if u were honest in writing this blog then u wud have put ajay and akshay at the same spot – sharing it. they have done that for 22 years.

  37. danish

    @gorilla – perceptions are the easiest to lie abot. u can say, ased on percepton, even dino morea is no 1. but tr baking it up with boxofice data an u wil e exposed.

    and u urself said pereption s one criterion and now u are saying its not. so typical of an akshay fan.

    and where are the 75% commenst by non akshay fans in support f his being no 2 on this thread? u didnt show me. again so ike an akshay fan.

    uff ye NG ki false respectablity and the ‘trade exeperts’ basking in it!
