  • paap of bollywood
    salman record –
    1-> 9 top year film(aaj tak koi bhi nahi kar paya)
    2-> 5 Blockbuster film in a row (kisi bhi actor ne nahi kiya
    or rajesh khanna ne 13-14 hit and superhit film in row)
    3-> 4-5 All Time Blockbuster (koi bhi nahi hai 3-film by aamir khan)
    4-> 9-Blockbuter after this year D2 then +1=10-Blockbuster( include ATBB)-(srk give 7-Blockbuster)
    5-> Salman is the only actor whose debut film is an All Time Blockbuster (koi bhi nahi hai)
    Now–Salman Khan is Currently Know as the Box Office Dominator. Known For Exquisite Success and Fan Following in India, Salman Khan is Currently Our Box Office King. He has Delivered the Maximum All Time Blockbusters in Indian Cinema and Has Second Highest Fan Following on Facebook For Any Indian Actor.

  • Salman, Katrina and ETT will make a clean sweep as it is box office awards. Aamir Khan and Talaash not even nominated! So much for him, his fans and PR who pit him against other stars or call him some BO force! A Ranbir Kapoor trumped him so badly!

    It’s okay tingya can get nomination next year when he does YRF’s multistarrer franchise Dhoom 3!

  • srk’s jthj,may nt be a bigger hit than dabang2,but it crossed 100cr even it was not a single release,big films like sos,life of pi crashed with jthj and it also holds the record of the highest grossing film(opening day,worldwide) among other diwali releases

  • aamir khan is not highest grosser , vivek oberoi is highest grosser of the year

    aamir khan has tie up with awards shows and manipulating figures
