  • With 23 endorsements, i think SRK has highest no. of endorsements, which is the parameter of his popularity as well.Because if you are not most famous, then companies would like to contact with some other star, which has more popularity and who can fetch a considerable amount of audiences for their ad.So, still SRK is more famous than his contemprories and actors of new generation.

  • @Indicine:

    Mammootty and Mohanlal , the malayalam superstars had 5 releases during this period. They get paid Rs.1 crore to 1.5 crore for a film. which means they have however earned more than 5 crores from films itself. They are also ambasadors of many brands. then why not their name is missing.????

  • Salman’s both the movies of last year, have each earned more than his yearly earnings (that too only in india) whereas srk movie’s total worldwide collections was just slightly more than his annual earnings!

  • All this Indian medias are against the Real King Salman khan ..on the other side , salman don care this all fake news n don wanna come Infront of this media because he knows all media people support SrK whether he do bad or good ..despite of taking all media in his hand by money by SRK also can’t compare to real khan. If this Indian media was in the side of Salman no body knows what would happen in the world. Maximum websites r by the people of SrK so more news focus on his any things time and again.
    But we all real king khan Salman fans don believe this fake news ..but we ll support him in every steps of his life..we ll b there when his film comes in hall.we support him to help the poor people in the India through being human. He is the god of poor people in India.

    Indicine is totally SRK friend’s site..I doubted !!!!!!

  • salman fans not liking it but why? im a hrithik fan . i respect every actor but even this position of salman is just a matter of chance.

    salman fans should think that even ranbir n emraan hashmi r doing original films.

    srk is way way way beyond any other star.i think bigb and srk are now on the same level.

    and hrithik with high class films like krish3,bang bang and pani will catch them up .

    and salman,akshay and ajay please continue doing remakes.

    SRK #respect
