Who is the second biggest star after Salman Khan?

Joginder Tuteja answers 5 questions from Indicine readers

In recent times, with the most popular genre being ‘Desi flicks’, don’t you think that the romance (JTHJ) has outperformed suspense/thriller (Talaash)? If so, can it also be attributed to SRK’s superstardom when compared to that of Aamir? – Tinku Jain

  • Both JTHJ and Talaash were average movies and brought in collections that they deserved. There is no question of the stardom of Shahrukh or Aamir coming into play.

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

  • 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.

Do you feel that Arbaaz has screwed up ‘Dabangg 2’? The promos are so lame and boring. It looks like they are showcasing the unedited scenes of ‘Dabangg’. The songs are on the same lines of ‘Dabangg’, hence making it repetitive. The so called buzz is just because its a sequel of ‘Dabangg’ and Salman is at his peak. – Prateek

  • On the contrary Arbaaz has played it smartly. He managed months of promotion and stage setting by continuing from where ‘Dabangg’ left, hence ensuring that an instant connect was formed.

Kishore Kumar was a complete artist – an excellent actor, director, music producer, singer etc. Is there anyone today who has the same abilities or even comes close? – Sandy

  • Sadly, none.

With Krrish 3, Dhoom 3, Happy New Year and Chennai Express coming in 2013, will it be possible for Salman Khan to continue his supremacy in 2013 at the Indian Box office as all these films are looking hardcore commercial entertainers? – Gaurav Handa

  • Yes, Salman Khan will have less releases (as of now, only one with Sohail Khan) when compared to Shahrukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn. Also, Hrithik and Aamir will arrive with full force. However given the fact that ‘Dabangg 2’ would be continuing it’s run in 2013 as well and it is expected that Sohail’s film would be a ‘hardcore commercial entertainer’ as well, he would stay on to be the top star.

  • 1)salman

    2) aamir

    3)ranbir

    4)akshay

    5)ajay/srk

    reasons why ranbir is 3rd is becoz even due to an offbeat film he beat srk starrers don2 & jthj!!

    akshay’s recent failure of k786 has caused him to slip to 4th spot…

    srk’s sliding collections with each release takes him to 5th spot raone 118 cr > don2 106 cr > jthj 102 cr…..

    and aamir is at second becoz the benchmark of 3 idiots hasnt been crossed till now…but if dhoom 3 does anything less than 150 crores then he may slide down to 4th , 5th spot….

    if dabangg 2 crosses 200 cr…then even if his next 5 releases are just hit….still he will remain on top since he has given consecutive 5 top grossers out of which dabangg ,dabangg2 & ett are atbbs!!

  • just saw review of dabaang2 everywhere..most of the critics giving 2/5..i am not a hater of sallu..but why he is miss using his stardom by doing crap movies i don’t know..

  • @tejas
    you’re always haters and jealous to SRK and using Barfi to compare srk films..
    dont you know talaash,sos,k786,all films of sallu before dabangg are less than barfi.
    Your comments always pointless.LOL

  • Kamaal R Khan – KRK ‏@kamaalrkhan
    #Jabtakhaijaan 10 times better #Ekthatiger 30 times better n #Dabang 50 times better than #Dabangg2 so I give 2 stars. Ppl enjoy the film.

  • Kamaal R Khan – KRK ‏@kamaalrkhan
    If you are fan of Salman khan then you must watch #Dabangg2 but pls don’t do mistake to use your brain about story or music or direction.

  • Kamaal R Khan – KRK ‏@kamaalrkhan
    Many ppl r asking me 2 tell story like #Talaash friends M ready to tell you story but if there is no story in #Dabangg2 so what shud I tell?

  • @tejas
    we both are talking about pointless..if you say leave ra.one then i can say all films of sallu before dabangg..thats hater’s job…do you understand??IDIOT.

  • tejas, for god’s sake why aamir come to 2nd???
    oh salman and aamir are best buddy?LOL
    Jogindar says SRK come to 2nd,aamir-3rd and akki-4th..
    dont even mention Ranbeer. i know barfi crossed 100cr but it does not mean
    he’s 3rd…

  • @adi what collections u are telling man?? according to boi….barfi107 cr > don2 106 cr > jthj 102 cr….

    & boi is the most authentic site since it is also rankked no.2 in the world & no.1 in india!!!

  • @ adi my point is that salman is far greater than all actors presently !!& ranbir has a greater pull than srk!!!….u didnt understand such small thing from my comments lol!!!

  • @tejas
    ok leave barfi, talk about ranbeer future films.
    do you feel his next films are guarantee 100cr???
    i dont think so..
    Barfi is masterpiece..
    SRK future films always surely 100cr… still you think ranbeer is ahead of srk???Lol.

  • aricle from boi:-

    Dabangg 2 has taken a juggernaut opening at the box office all across India. The single screens that open early are fantastic and when they open at large at noon it will be historic.

    The multiplexes have also taken a record start with housefull shows across the board. Basically the opening of the film is at record pace but what normally happens on working days is that multiplexes start better as lower tickets rates but pace slackens slightly from noon and a bigger drop around around 4pm and they pick up again in the late evening while on the holidays the whole day remains superb.

    The opening of the film has assured it the biggest weekend in history of Hindi cinema and that too by a distance.

  • @ adi …why future i was talking about present!!…and nobody has seen future…remember salman will be back as radhe with the famous hairstyle…so it can even do 250+cr…. speaking about ranbir ..he’s reuniting with deepika…so it can also work wonders!!!!btw i prefer to live in present !!! lol!!
