A lot has changed in the industry in the past seven years. While Shah Rukh Khan was the top superstar at the start of this decade, things took a massive U-Turn with the superstar struggling to even hold the number three at the Box Office. Akshay, on the other hand, has been churning out one hit after the other.
Here’s our ranking of current top superstars of Bollywood (2010 – 2017):
The only feat that Salman Khan hasn’t yet achieved in this decade is delivering an All Time Grosser, however, with a couple more years to go, it would be interesting to see if Khan manages to attain this feat as well. Salman’s consistency to deliver blockbusters and set records year after year has guaranteed him the number one position this decade. Khan’s biggest flop this decade, Tubelight too remains to be the biggest opener of the year till date, which speaks volumes about the stardom that Khan has witnessed. Salman also holds the record of delivering 11 consecutive Rs 100 crore-grossers – a feat that is bound to remain unchallenged for a long time.
No. 2 – Aamir Khan:
Aamir Khan has acted in a total of five films in seven years, which also includes an art film Dobhi Ghaat. If we measure the success of Dangal and with the failure of Tubelight, he indeed seems to be the biggest Box Office draw, however, if we look at the decade in totality, the actor loses the battle against Salman Khan by a small margin. By the time, Aamir Khan’s next film, Thugs of Hindostan releases, Salman, in all possibilities, would have another blockbuster to his credit in the form of Tiger Zinda Hai.
