  1. I think this comparision between two is just to waste time.

    Everybody knows that Shah Rukh is the best.

  2. Big B ka bal hai SRK..SRK is SRK Big B is Big B
    No comparison..dont waste ur time..go study lolzzz…

  3. zabardasti ka comparision hai ……. josh is not hit, chalte chalte is semihit, DON is semihit
    Hum tumhare hain sanam is average , raju ban gaya gentle man is average ……

    for BigB , satte pe satta , desh premi, Nastik , Agnipath , do aur do paanch are not flops
    All these were hits or semihits

    HUM and Shehenshah was outright hits.

  4. Chalte Chalte and Don – The Chase Begins Again is outright Hit not Semi – Hit. Taran Adarsh has Rated Chalte Chalte as Super Hit, while Box Office Editor has Rated Don – The Chase Begins Again as Super Hit. Josh and Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam were Semi-Hits to Hits.

    HUM and Shehenshah are not outright hits, they are Semi-Hits.

    satte pe satta , desh premi, Nastik , Agnipath , do aur do paanch are outright flops. Media and Fanatics of Bachchan in there Dreams made these Movies Hit. There are many Journals to Prove these Movies were Flops, consult them.

  5. Bachchan sucks… SRK is the ruling King of Bollywood!!

  6. Well !!!

    Amitabh ruled when there was only CINEMA was entertainment and there was No TV video Computer games etc etc.

    SRK is ruling when there is piracy and all sort of entertainment …

    SRK is miles AHEAD

    Shanker

  7. Shanker:

    Very well said. Big B ruled in days when Bollywood has zero competition. Today we have cable, internet, sports, DVD and to top it all piracy. Hence SRK’s achievement is so much greater.

    Nonetheless please note, a flop movie like Shakti or Hey Ram (as well as others in the above list) is like water off SRK’s back. No producer or financier will hold it against SRK. These were not counted as SRK movies. Similarly a super hit K3G or KANK will never be seen as a feather in Big B’s cap (the benefit will always acrue to SRK ) as these were SRK movies. In essence, what I am saying is that the Big B Vs SRK list (in this thread) is unintentionally skewed in Big B’s favor, yet SRK comes out ahead.

    Moreover Producers and Financiers don’t make movies to earn a hit or a super hit label from Mr. Gupt Gyan. They make movies to earn money. A hit label and an IFFA award is many ways is not as meaningful as the overall absolute money that a movie grosses (people cannot live off awards and labels). From this perspective you will find that even SRK’s commission earner makes more money (actual absolute physical money not some statistical or financial ratio) than Big B’s hits.

  8. This is only for shaker and shaankhaan…….Get your facts right :

    Q)When did SRK came to films??

    A) Thw answer is 1991. there was no DVD Piracy, No internet and no compuer games.

    Q)When did computers , internet and DVD piracy started?

    A) From 1998 onwards.and by that time SRK was already a star.

    All the people who are giving the details of hits and flops and classyfying in terms if “semihits”, “hits” or “above avergae” , they dont know that the website “boxofficeindia.com” from where they are taking this crap data was not even existing before 2003…

    If you really want to know about the HITS or FLOPS of Amitabh, you should consider the trade section of Flimfare magazne of those years and you will see that all those movies which this crap site “boxoficeindia.com” is labelling with terms like “semihit” or “above average” , were actually a HUge Hits……

    People dont know that SRK started his career in 1991 and at that time there was no computer or internet or DVD piracy (even an idiot can tell this)….computer and internetand DVD piracy started becoming popular in 1999 onwards and by that time SRK was already a star…..

    on the other hand an aging old Amitabh returned back after a long gap of 6 years in 1997 and now an old amitabh started his struggle among new generation of actors and dvd piracy, 1000 of channels, computer games, internet, etc etc…….ITS NOT EASY FOR A 60 YEAR OLD ACTOR TO SURVIVE IN SUCH COMPETITIVE ERA…BUT STILL INSPITE OF COMPUTER GAMES INTERNET DVD PIRACY, AMITABH STRUGGLED HARD INSPITE OF FAILURES AND TODAY IS A BIGGER CELEBRITY THAN SRK BOTH FINANCIALLY AND CAREERWISE…….. CAN ANYONE TELL ME ANY ACTOR IN THE HISTORY OF INDIAN CINEMA WHO WAS SO MUCH POPULAR AT THE AGE OF 65 IN THIS COMPETITIVE ERA???????……….AND MOREOVER AMITABH HAS SUSTAINED HIS POPULARITY FOR LAST 35 YEARS THAT ITSELF IS AN AMAZING ACHIEVEMENT!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Nitin, but boxofficeindia is taking information from journals also. They are top most editors of boxoffice trade in India. It’s not as if they some random people.

  10. Amitabh never always worked keeping only Boxoffice in his mind and its applicable even today…….But if you see today, SRK is working only keeping Box ofice in their mind!!!!

    Rememeber one thing dude, AMITABH IS THE ONLY SUPERSTAR WHO HAS WORKED IN EVERY GENRE OF FILMS AND ALMOST EVERY GREAT DIRECTOR OF PAST THREE DECADES HAVE LOVED TO BE WORKED WITH BIGB IRRESPECTIVE OF BOXOFFICE STATURE :

    Rituparno Ghosh (The last Lear)
    Meera Nayar (Shantaram)
    Satya jeet ray ( Shatranj ke khildi- narration)

  11. This is for shaankhan:

    [b]when amitabh started his career in 1969 there were already superstars like rajesh khanna, dilip kumar, dharmendra,shammi kapoor and and later there were actors like sanjiv kumar, naseeruddin shah, ompuri etc…[/b]

    When he entered in film industry, he was consistently compared with other actors and was made fun by others due to his even prakash mehra hesitated to sign him for zanjeer……..

    Amitabh first inning as a star ranged from 1973 to 1992……during that period of time he faced many new comers and talented actors from mainstrean and parallel films who use to give him tough fight in filmfare awards……from 1973 to 1992 he saw many competitors but his star status remained unchanged……He got many contemporaries, juniors and seniors like Kamal Hassan, naseerudin shah,Shashi kapoor,Mithuun Chakraborty, Dilip Kumar, Rajesh khanna, Dharmendra,Shatrugn Snha, Deveanand, Manoj Kumar, Sanjeev kumar, Rishi kapoor,Ompuri, Vinod Khanna, Amol Palekar, Sunny deol,Sachin, Kumar Gaurav, Sanjay Dutt,Amir khan, Jackie shroff, Anil kapoor, etc….

    Also, later when he returned in 1998 there were stars like Sunny, Anil, SRK, Amir,Govinda, Ajay and still being a 60 yaer old man he struggled hard even though he was criticed by everyone by doing movies like lal badshah, mrityusdaata, etc….but atleast he struggled and thats why he is in a position right now that no one in the history of indian cinema reached there………

    [b]SRK came in 1991 when bigb retired and there was no as such big reighning superstar at that time(guys like ajay, akki, started at same time and amir sunny were just stars but not reighning superstars)… [/b]

    Amitabh is the only actor in the history of Indian cinema that showed that even at the age of 65, you can be a versatile actor as well as a star at box office and as well as popular……… amitabh worked with directors of 70s 80s 90s and of todays……..

    At present he is the only actor (I repeat he is the only actor) that every director right from vidhu vinod chopra to karan johar to ramgopal verma to rajkumar santoshi wants to work with him……every director of present era specialized in various genre (dark to candyfloss) has a dream to work with Big b……

    II) Baritone voice and personality: no need to write about it

    III) Star Power : Big B is apprecaited by all sections of audiences for last 4 decades that no one in The history of Indian cinema did..

    IV)Popularity: no need to write about it…at age of 64 amitabh is popular in all section of audeinces…….

    V) As a successful TV host : Big b’s KBC is the most successful indian TV show which shows his multidimensional personality…even KBC 2 was more popular…..it shows amitabh’s talent much more than just being an actor….

    VI)As a successful Brand Ambassdor and Model: all the biggest companies rely on him for advertising their products and Big B is the highest paid celebrity at age of 64…..Even for the publkic message like “polio drop movement” or “aids awareness”, government can easily rely on him becoz he can have effect on public….

    VII)As a stage performer : Do you know that the first (commercially) scessful show outside country was “Jumma Chuma in London” performed by Big b ????……its from here that from then on rest of stars follow his footsteps and now perform worldwide (commercially)…infact Big B also perfrms now a days a age of 64……..

    VIII)As a proficient in different lanuages: amitabh worked in regional languages and even gave successful films in bengali, kannada, bhojouri, marathi, punjabi etc…he is one of the few actors in india to work in regional languages………

    MY ONLY PURPOSE WRITING MY POINTS WAS TO MAKE READERS AWARE WHEN THEY COMPARE SRK AND AMITABH……..JUST TO REALIZE THEM AMITABH IS MULTIDIMENSIONAL ARTIST AD ITS AN INSULT EVEN TO MENTION THE NAME OF SRK WITH HIS….

  12. Mr. Master,

    The editor of boxoffice india doent know that many movies he classifies in terms of semihits, above avegae etc were declared SUPERHIT by the authentic trade magazines during that time……..Such classification was not even the criteria in late 60s and early 70s when Amitabh came to movies…..I have a collection of Filmfare magazines of 70s and 80s and you can clearly see that how these things have been manipulated by such site……The editor of this site was not even born when Amitabh came in film industry in 1969

    Also there are so many other websites who give contradictory verdict of various movies of amitabh’s movies of 70s and 80s……So whom you are going to trust???…….

    Anyways, if you are really interseted to know the status of amitah’s movies in 70s and 80s i recommend you to go through filmfare trade section of 70s and 80s…..

    i have already shown in my discussion and wont repeat agan and again that “amitabh worked with everytype of directors not just 2-3 directors” to give successful movies…and when I say successful, it doesnt matter whether movies are hits, semi hits, blockbuster or above average….…just remove any 2-3 directors from following list and it wont affect amitabh as a star!!!…..but some fools classify movies in terms of semihits, blockbusters, hits, above average, average……who care about hits and semihits???????………..atleast amitah was responsible to recover cost of movie working with every type of directors and gave them their success……atleast those movies were successful ……even the unknown directors like Chandra barot, deven verma, dalaal guha, ravi tendon were able to give successful movies at box office……….. ..even if he had an extended special apparence in the movie like giraftaar and andhaa kanoon, still movie was hit only becoz of his presence:

    1)hrishiskesh mukherjee : (chupke chupke, anand, bemisaal, namak haraam ,abhimaan, mili etc..)
    2)rakesh kumar(mr. natwarlaal, khoon pasina, yaraanaa, do aur do paanch etc..)
    3)ramesh sippy (sholay, shann etc..)
    4)s.ramanathan(mahaan, andhaa kaanoon,etc..)
    5)tinu anand (kaalia, shehanshah etc)
    6)shakti samantha (barsaat ki ek raat, great gambler etc)
    8)raj n sippy (SATTE PE SATTA etc…)
    7)pramod chakraborty(nastik)
    8)raj khosla(dostana etc..)
    9)ramesh behel(pukaar,kasme vaade etc..)
    9)narendra bedi(adalat etc..)
    10)chandra barot(don)
    11)manoj kumar(roti kapda aur makaan)
    12)dalal guha (do anjaane)
    13)ravi tandon(majboor khuddar etc..)
    14)Basu chatterjee (manzil etc..)
    15)shankar mukherjee (faraar etc.)
    16)sultan ahmed (ganga ki saugandh)
    17)deven verma (besharam)
    18)pramod chakraborty(nastiketc..)
    19)mukul anand(hum)
    20)yash chopra(kabhie kabhie, silsila, deewar)
    21)prakash mehra(zanjeer, muqaddar ka siqandar, sharaabi)
    22)manmohan desai(amar akbr Anthony, coolie etc..)

    and many more…….

    As a versatile actor in second innings :

    Now talk of todays generation….he is working with almost every talented director of this generation… i understand that he cannot give hits with everyone but evey director feels complete after directing amiabh…..this should be sufficinet to tell the verasatility of amitabh….on one side he is worling with dark cinema makers like ramgopal verma and santoshi and on other side he is working with candyfloss film makers like karan johar!!!!!!…..what else proof you need for his versatality

    23)ravi chopra(baghban, babul)
    24)shaad ali(bunty n bubli)
    25)david dhawan(bade myan chote miyan)
    26)ram gopal verma(sarkar, nishabd)
    27)vidhu vonod chopra(eklavya)
    28)rakesh omprakash(aks)
    29)vipul shah(aankhein, waqt)
    30)aditya chopra(mohabbatein)
    31)farah khan (happy new year)
    32)sanjay gupta (kaante)
    33)karan johar(k3g, kank)
    34)apoorva lakhiya(ek ajnabi)
    35)sanjay leela bhansaali (black)
    36)sunil darshan (ek rishta)
    37)govind nihalani(dev)
    38)faran akhtar(lakshya)
    39)honey irani(armaan)
    40)milan luthari(deewar)

    And lots to come……and all theses directors are not idiots to take amitabh in various roles…………

    I THINK THAT THE ABOVE LSTED PRODUCERS AND DIRECTOR PEOPLE ARE BETTER QUALIFIED TO JUDGE THE BOXOFFICE IMPORTANCE AND VERSATALITY OF AMITABH……THOSE WHO ARE STARTING SUCH TYPES OF DISCUSSION IN THIS FORUM ARE NOT EVEN FROM THE FILM FRATERNITY AND THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO RAISE THE QUESTION MARK ON AMITABH……INFACT THEY AE INSULTING AMITABH BY COMPARING
    HIM WITH SRK…….

  13. no nitin u r wrong.when amitabh started delivering big hits expectations from him was huge.so it became difficult for him to get a hit tag for every movie as lot of money riding on them.so every movie couldnt be hits.just see what happened 2 kank n don last yr .even if they grossed nearly abut 50 cr it was considered an average yr for srk.just because evertyone expects a lot frm srk movies after 15 yrs of his remarkable career.same happened with amitabh in early 80′s.

  14. the bigger u become the bigger the expectations from u n harder to get a hit tag for all movies.

  15. Mr. Nitin:

    I was also under the impression that Big B was undestructable in the 70s and 80s but when I saw old Film Information Ratings (half yearly & annual) , I was shocked. Box Office India are right and extremely reliable.

    Filmfare is not a trade Magazine. It is a Filimi Magazine. They also Rated Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon as Hit, do you believe with their Verdict? The Answer will be no.

    It is Media who went overboard in praising Amitabh Bachchan. No doubt Amitabh Bachchan is a great actor but fact is fact in His Hey Days Amitabh Bachchan did not had Solo All Time Blockbuster and Blockbuster which can be checked from Film Information (Trade Journal) and Box Office India.

  16. Mr. Nitin:

    Yet another factor that went in Shah Rukh Khan’s favour in making him the darling of all sections of society was his unbelievable versatility. It is not for nothing that the King Khan became a superstar. Although he was adored in Lover Boy roles, Shah Rukh Khan never let down his fans in Action films like Karan Arjun, Ram Jaane, Josh and Main Hoon Naa. Yes Boss and Baadshah come to mind instantly when one thinks of Shah Rukh Khan’s flair for comedy. With equal ease, Shah Rukh Khan also played the intense lover as in Darr and Anjaam. For Art Lovers there was Asoka, Swades and Paheli.

  17. Mr Mustafa,

    first of all you didnt check any film magazines of 70s and 80s or else you would have understood what i am saying……there are N n. of websites who say N no. of things but they were not even exsting before 2003……

    First read each and every line what i wrote and then comment……..I dont trust boxfficeindia.com as i have the authentic magazines of that era…….

    just for your information, there were huge solo hits like Sharaabi, Coolie, Namak halaal etc.. which you dont even know……..There was nothing a term like “BLOCKBUSTER” used in those days…..The film success scale was measured in terms of money it earns on various regions in India..I am sure you didnt go through those magazines otherwise you wouldnthave stated that…….

    There was a media ban on amitabh for 15 years and hence amitabh didnt get that media attention as SRK is getting now and still his films uused to be huge hits…….i think its the media who goes overboard with SRK and not Amitabh……..first know something and then talk plz…..Just go through what I wrote and then compare SRK and amitabh…..

  18. Mr Somadatta,

    I am not atlking about expectations…i was talking about amitabh………

    yes i know that besieds a great versatile actor he was a superstar amnd thats why when he returned in 98 the expectations were huge even though he wasturning to 60s………but then he reinvented himself and gave successful films

    PLEASE GO THROUGH WHAT I WAS SAYING……..

  19. Mr Nitin:

    I have also the Authentic Film Information (Trade Journals) of that Era and it is Similar to Box Office India. Sharaabi was Rated as A (Hit), Coolie was Rated as A1 (Super Hit)and Namak Halaal was Rated as +B (Overflow).

    For your information Filmfare Magazine is a Filmi Magazine not a Trade Magazine and to rely on that is a Big Mistake. Fact is Fact accept it.

    And one more thing Amitabh Bachchan in His Hey Days didn’t had Solo All Time Blockbuster which is a Fact, while Shah Rukh Khan has Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Now you will say Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is no Solo All Time Blockbuster of Shah Rukh Khan.

  20. how can u forget kkhh?it was a solo all time block buster 4 srk.

  21. mr nitin
    if u go through every trade journals u would see every movies of amitabh were not outright hits.can u name some outright hits of amitabh after 1985?

  22. Amitabh Bachchan Fans will say there was Salman Khan in it. For DDLJ they will say Kajol was their and Parmeet Seethi Acting was better than Shah Rukh Khan, etc. Their level of Stupidity is top most. They can’t accept fact.

  23. the last superhit of amitabh during his prime was MARD in 1985.then there was a dearth of hits frm amitabh barring a few like aaj ka arjun and hum.from 1986-89 in these 4 yrs he had not have a single hit to his credit.if u argue shahenshah, agnee path , to be hits then i guess u have clueless abut what boxoffice is.

  24. even i feel dilip kumar is always ignored.he had a remarkable career from 1948-62 with a huge number of both commercial n critical successes.

  25. You are Right. But even Hum was not outright Hit it was +B (Overflow). Only Outright Hit from 1985 was Aaj Ka Arjun. Shahenshah was +B (Overflow) and Agnee Path clean Flop. It is not like you got National Award for it the Movie will be Hit.

  26. Mr somadutta,

    better check your facts ok

    1985: he had two releases Mard and Giraftaar and bothe were successful

    1986 : he had only one release “aakhrio raastaa” and it was successful

    1987 : there was no release of any film

    1988 : Shehenshaah was successful

    1989 : he didnt have any hit that year

    looks like you never read a single line what i wrote above and just moving a circle………

    I am not here to argue you about hits or flops…..I was only saying that there are different facts given in various websites and i would like to trust magazines of those eras which are still in my collections…….

  27. But that are Film Magazines. But we are talking about Trade Journals. You are moving in Circles not we and according to Trade Journals Amitabh Bachchan Movies Classification is Here. And if you are saying that “would like to trust magazines of those eras which are still in my collections” then you have to believe this Eras Magazines as well which are saying Shah Rukh Khan Hit Movies. It is not like that you believe one era Magazine and don’t believe another era magazine because it is not according to your liking.

    Beleive in only Trade Journals and nothing else and then you will come to know the fact.

  28. Mr Somdatta and Mr Mustafa,

    if you read what I hav been writing from my very first message, you will realise what I anted to say…….I have my own source of data that I Would like to trust and you have your own sources……..

    BoxfficeIndia calls “Hum tumhare hain sanam” as a successful movie which is utter crap…..i know there are many sites which are biased to a certain actor (and i wont even hesitate to admit that there are pro amitabh webistes also)…

    Hence I am not going to trust any of those websites and trust my resources fotr that era…..You are free to trust your own resources……

    Coming to All time blockbuster, you should ealiose that there is nothing a term like “Solo Alltime blockbuster” or”multi Allime blockbuster”

    A film is all time blockbuster due to vraious reasons…….I you say that DDLJ was ATBB due to SRK then you are fooling yourself….Neither Sholay is ATBB due to Amitabh alone, nor DDLJ is blockbuster due to SRK alone…….

    there were many things asociated with any ATBB….Not every successful movie could be ATBB……it comes in a packege……YOu cannot say that “Maine Pyaar kiya” amd “Hum aapke hain kaun” became ATBB due to Salman only ??…..if thats the case then all movies of Salman should be ATBB…..There are many factors associated with a movie to become ATBB and you cannot say that a movie is ATBB due to a particular actor…..

    If a movie can become ATBB due to presence of an actor, then all the movies of SRK would have been ATBB…..Why not Guddu, Koyla, Chahat became ATBB??….

  29. they may be successful but not outright hits.aakhir raasta was a disspointment.check it with boi.sucessful doesnt mean hit.so better check ur facts.i dont think any trade magzine has labeled aakhir raasta n sehenshah as hits.i guess u have checked it in IBOS which still holds the argument that GURU got the best opening this year.lol.

  30. i also believe HTHS was a crap.but it earned money at some places .so trade considers it as a successful movie not a hit by any means.i m only talking abut movies in boxoffice terms not in qualitative terms.i dont think hum, aaj ka arjun , sahenshah, aakhir raasta were great movies by any way.yes these movies all made money thats it.same with movies like HTHS,BAADSHSH ETC.

  31. Somadatta,

    Instead of lecturing me why dont you yourself go and check BOI…Do you even know what is the verdict of “aakhri raastaa” in BOI??

    Its a “semi-hit” ……..and yous shamelessly calling it a dissapointement???……it shows your level of knowldege…..i can only pity for you……may God bless you

  32. AS U SAID NO MOVIE CAN BECOME SUCCESSFUL BY AN ACTOR ALONE.I DO AGRRE THAT.BUT STILL DDLZ,KKHH ARE CONSIDERED THE SOLO HITS OF SRK.SAME WITH DON,MARD,COLLIE OF AMITABH.

  33. Yes even I think Shehanshah , aaj ka arjun etc.. were crap movies but they were successful………..same applpies to HTHS, DTPH, KKHH etc..

  34. IT WAS A DISSAPOINMENT IN THE SENSE PEOPLE WERE EXPECTING IT TO BE A BLOCKBUSTER.EVEN BOI HAS SAID THAT IN
    http://www.boxofficeindia.com/topactors.htm.CHECK IT NOW.JUST LIKE WHAT HAPPENED TO KANK.EVEN THOUGH IT IS A HIT, TRADE CONSIDERS IT TO BE A DISSAPONTMENT.IT WAS EXPECTED TO DO HUGE BUSINESS BUT IT DIDNT.

  35. I DONT THINK KKHH WAS BY ANY MEANS A CRAP MOVIE.IT WAS GOOD IF NOT GREAT.IF U THINK KKHH TO BE A CRAP THEN I GUESS U HAVE A STRONG DISLIKE 4 SRK.

  36. if u r using filmfare as ur sorce then i guess u r totally mislead.as mustafa said it is film magazine not a trade one.even they considered mpkdh as hit.do u wanna believe that.they dont really follow the business of movies.

  37. if u wanna see some copies of trade magazine i can send u that if u wish to.

  38. I dont think that people were expecting huge hit becoz it was made by a south indian director who never worked with amitabh before……..then how can people expect a miracle??

    First of all I dont belive in any website which didnt exist those times weter its IBOS or BOI……i cannot trust any of them…

    Wat I know that even though it was direcetd by a director who never directed amitabh and was unknown to bollywood, the film success really shows that amitabh was relaible even in the late 80s…….there was bad year of 1989 and 1990 but he came with a bang after two years in Hum and Khuda gawah before he retired from film industry……..

  39. ust like I dont like KKHH, K3G,KANK it doent mean you can judge my likes or dislikes……..I really liked Hey Ram, KHKN, Swades etc…

    The thing that I dont like when people overhype certain things as you should have clearly figured out with all my posts……..

  40. i dont deny the fact that amitabh was reliable in late 80′s.what i wanna say after going through some trade magzines i have found not every movies of amitabh were hits.it was the media which claimed some movies to be hits which in fact were not.as u say people over hype certain things, i do agree but it is only the hardcore fans who do it.be it of amitabh or srk.i still believe srk has been a strong force 4 bollywood both in india n overseas.whatever he has achieved in his 15 yrs career it is something remarkable.

  41. we have to admit that he is one of the biggest superstars bollywood has ever produced.as far as the comparisons between srk n big b is concerned there is not much of a gap between the two if we take the 1st 15 yrs of their careers buy yes amitabh has little edge for sure.

  42. during the era of amitabh people were blindly following their stars.the used 2 see every movie of their fav.stars even if movies were craps.thats y i believe directors in 70′s n 80′s took everything for granted n started producing mediocre movies.during that era it was the larger than life characters started to take over.but the time is quite different now.people wont accept anything crap.so it is very diifucult to give hits on regular basis unless u do 1 or a 2 quality movies a yr.thats y i put dilip kumar ahead of anybody just bcoz the way he was delivering movies of both commercial n critical successes.

  43. even amitabh will feel small in front of him.forget abut srk.

  44. as u talked abut offscreen image of amitabh,let me tell you srk is ahead of amitabh when it comes to sheer ofscreen charisma.do u wanan say srk hosted badly in kbc?i dont think so.he was great.presented in his own style.have u ever watched any filmfare shows hosted by srk?see how entertaining he was in shows with his amazing sense of humor which noone can bring, and wit.intellectuals love him offscren more than they like him onscreen.he is intelligent, superb orator,has wide knowledge abut the happenings in the world.he is one of the few well-read people in bolywood.u can never doubt his charisma offscreen.even his shows around the world have been quite succesful.so when it comes to offscren i would take srk over amitabh any day.i guess many would agree me on that.as an actor i do agree he may not be on par with amitabh but definitely ahead of amitabh when it comes 2 offscree.i just love srk offscreen.

  45. I will be traveling today, but will return with a “short” answer (to the point).

  46. Mr. Nitin & Somadutta!

    I would like to say why can’t we Respect both Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan Success. Both are Legends in there in own right and now the matter is closed. We should Respect everyone Success that is moral of the story.

  47. Mr. Somdatta,

    Your knowledge of films and amitabh is very pathetic…….i respect your own personal beliefs and perceptions but atleast dont hype like mustafa or shaankhaan as these guys are blind SRK fanatics…….you are free to think whatever you want…….The moment I came in this forum what i see is the BLIND OVERHYPED AND OVEREXXAGARATED STATEMENTS ABOUT SRK AND CONTINOUSLY DEGRADING BIGB BASED ON LIES IN THIS FORUM (JUST HAVE A LOOK HOW I EXPOSED THEIR LIES ONE BY ONE)………AND GUYS LIKE MUSTAFA SAYS TO RESPECT EVERYONE…….WHAT A HYPOCRATIC STATEMENT…….

    why you everytime yourself go offscreen and deviate from the topic??…….I never talked about comparing KBC then why you are raising the issue?……..If you want to belive that SRK is better orator than BigB you are free to do so…….But for me i think BiGb has great command in various languages as he even gave successful movies in various regional languages……just have a look what i wrote above……

    You want to belive that its due to his shows that the shows are succeful, then let me tell you that you dont even know that it was amitabh who started this trend and you are unaware of his charisma offscreen………even at age of 64 he can entertain the aufdience in stage shows…….but anyways……i have to leave now……will talk to you later

  48. Mr Shaankhaan,

    Trust me, i was enjoying your string of lies and frustration regarding amitabh……that even shows your level of education and knowldege…..yes, i am waiting to get some enlightment once you come back…..would love to read your so called short points…..

    take care

  49. whatever u may say abut amitabh but i find srk to be more intelligent, witty than amitabh.amitabh may have command on different languages but when i hear srk talking abut some social topics on tv ofcourse in english i really get moved.as i have said he is one of the few well-read people in bollywood.even BARKHA DUTT,SHOBA DE have been moved by his witty, intelligent replies to questions .even bollywood is moved by his charisma off scren.

  50. nitin,i knew u r a true admirer of amitabh.but man be ratioanal n plz dont try 2 to ridicule the success of srk.even i m a admirer of amitabh but i never ridicule the success srk has achieved or for that matter aamir or salman.dont even try to think amitabh is the GOD n noboby can challenge him.ofcorse he was huge in 70′s n 80′s but it is the era of srk.he rules now.as i have said in one post noone has till now beaten dilip kumar when it comes 2 boxoffice.that man has given innumerable hits out of the 56 films he did.movies were both critical n commercial successes which became rare in 70′s n 80′s n ofcourse now.even as an actor he was brilliant.he even overshadowed amitabh in shakti.so its not all abut amitabh guys.

  51. Mr somdatta,

    just look at your pathetic statements:

    “during the era of amitabh people were blindly following their stars.the used 2 see every movie of their fav.stars even if movies were craps.thats why i believe directors in 70’s n 80’s took everything for granted n started producing mediocre movies”

    If thats the case, then why not everyone became superstar in that era??…….why only amitabh???….why not rajesh khanna, sanjiv kumar, shashi kapoor etc..???..

    What do you know about the 70s cinemas???…..Do you know that some of the Hindi cinema’s best movies were made in 70s…..Did you even heard of amitabh’s movies like Anand, Alaap, manzil, Kabhie kabhie, Mili, Saudagar, Abhimaan, NAMAK haraam, Chupke Chupke, kaalaa pathar, Deewar, majboor, etc..??……..Atleast they were much better than raam jaane,chahat,guddu, koyla, dil to pagal hai, K3G type of movies

    Yes in 80s the level became low but still there were movies like shakti, satte pe satta, sharaabi, namak halaal, silsila, Main Azaad Hun, aakhri raasta etc.. which were classics…..

    if you think that people can watch any crap movies then why jaadugar, ajooba, toofan,gangajamuna saraswati etc.. were flops??……any answer?…..If people can watch any crap movies then why amitabh gave flops in his peak time???….any answers??…….why not every actor became superstar??……why only amitabh???

    Nothing has changed even now……even today a crap film like bunty n bubli/ waqt can be hit and a decent movie like Virudhh/Deewar(new)/Dev can be flop…..

    Amitabh has worked for both masses (Baghbaan, Bunty n bubli, Sarkar, Waqt, Cheeni kum) as well as for classes (Dev, Deewar(new), Nishabd, Black,Virudh etc..)…..HE IS THE ONLY SUPERSTAR IN THE HINDI CINEMA WHO WON BOTH CRITICS AND POPULARS AWARD FOR “BLACK”…..

    jUST CHECK MY LIST ABOVE AND YOU WILL GET SOME KNOWLDDEGE ABOUT VERSATALITY OF AMITABH…..YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THAT AMITABH HAS WORKED WITH EVERYTYPE OF DIRECTOR IN EVERY ERA……HE WAS NEVER THAT CONSCOIIUS ABOUT BOX OFFICE ALWAYS AND WORKED WITH EVERY TYPE OF DIRECTORS…..ON THE OTHER HAND PEOPLE LIKE SRK WORK SELECTIVELY KEEPING BOX OFFICE IN MIND……

  52. Somadatta,

    tell me a single statement in this forum that makes you belive that I am not rationale…….Infact its you who are giving irrational statemnts about amitabh …….If you really think rationally then just read what i wrote……

    You can easily see who are BLIND people in this forum…….I didnt come in this forum and started badmouthing against SRK…..Just look how these pathetic loosers are spaeking lies about BIGB…..even an uneducated person can point it out……..If you are really reading my all messages from beginning carefully, you can see who is rationale…..

  53. Anand, Alaap, manzil, Kabhie kabhie, Mili, Saudagar, Abhimaan, NAMAK haraam, Chupke Chupke, kaalaa pathar, Deewar, majboor, etc..?
    do u think these movies are classics barring a few like deewar, cc,n kk?they were good but cant be really called as classics.anyways if u look at bollywood history u would see bollywood was at its worst in the late 70′s n 80′s.every one thinks so.i guess u ahvent seen dilip kumar’s n raj kapoor’s old movies.then u can know what great movies are all about.what we call as classics?could we ever see movies of quality like nayadaur, devdas, aawara, do bhiga zamin, pyasa, jaagte raho n many more?i guess we will never watch that kinda cinema.thatsy i admire dilip kumar a lot more than any one.

  54. What do you know about the 70s cinemas???…..Do you know that some of the Hindi cinema’s best movies were made in 70s…..Did you even heard of amitabh’s movies like Anand, Alaap, manzil, Kabhie kabhie, Mili, Saudagar, Abhimaan, NAMAK haraam, Chupke Chupke, kaalaa pathar, Deewar, majboor, etc..??……..Atleast they were much better than raam jaane,chahat,guddu, koyla, dil to pagal hai, K3G type of movies

    nitin i guess u dont what great cinemas all about.the movies u mentioned were good films but not great by any means barring a few.

  55. if u ask me amitabh spoiled that quality of cienema .directors all along tried to exploit the larger than life character og amitabh.didnt put that much emphasis on story.even music suffered a lot.i dont blame amitabh 4 that entirely.i guess people were non-receptive n mediocre.

  56. i m a great fan of amitabh as an actor but not his movies as a whole.

  57. Dude,

    first you were comparing movies of todays and 70s …….and then all of sudden started comparing movies of 70s and 50s……why you hip hop like this???…….i was comparing movies of todays era and 70s keeping a certain point in view……

    I never denied that good movies were not made in 50s and 60s (I have already watched all the movies that you mentioned)…..i was saying something else….why you always deviate from topic??…….do you even read what i was saying and in which context???…….I think even in 70s there were awesome classic movies like “kAALAA PATHAR, KOSHISH, AASHIRWAAD, SAUDAGAR, MAIN AZAAD HUN, SHARAABI, BEMISAAL, SHAKTI, ANAND, DEEWAR, SATYAKAAM, ARADHNA, SHOLAY ETC… THEY WERE CLASS MOVIES…….IF YOU DONT WANT TO BELIVE IT , THEN I CANT HELP IT…….

    and by the way Dilip didnt acted in devdas, aawara, do bhiga zamin, pyasa, jaagte raho ……i know why you like dilip and why you said that dilip stole show in shakti…….

  58. I was replying you when you said that “in 70s and 80s people use to blindly follow the actor”……..if its true then what about 50s and 60s?????

    when i was giving you answer comparing 70s and todays era……you all of suudden started comparing 70s and 50s……why dont you concentrtae on topics???……

    And now you started blaming Amitabh for detrsoyng the quality of cinema???……how come dude??…..what is your qualification to give this certificate to amitabh???……AMITABH WAS NOT A PRODUCER, HE WAS ACTOR….HE WILL ONLY DO MOVIES WHICH WILL BE OFFERED TO HIM……AND BY THE WAY I MAY LIKE THE MOVIES OF DILIP BUT I AM NOT FAN OF HIS ACTING (WHICH IS HIGHLY MONOTONOUS)

    I KNOW WHY YOU SWITCHED FROM SRK TO DILIP……

  59. as i have said nobody really considers the movies u mentioned as classics except the amitabh fans. they were good movies.i dont deny the fact .anyways i guess u havent seen dilip saab’s devads.whatever u may say the best movies came in the 50′s n in the early 60′s.even i dont think anymovie of srk 2 be classics except a ddlz or swades.

  60. i think people in 50′s were very receptive.thats y the best movies could come in that era.

  61. i just switched 2 dilip frm srk just to say that amitabh is not the God.if u really a lover a good cinema then u wouldnt have said whatever amitabh did was best.even his movies were great.

  62. if u find dilip kumar’s acting to be monotonous then i guess u r a true biased amitabh fan.doesnt really know how to respect other’s works.too much obsession with amitabh.

  63. so dou wanna say amitabh is the best actor india has ever produced?ohhhhhhhhhhh what a pity!

  64. THE SAME APPLIES TO 60S AND 70S AND MID 80S……

    FOR ME SHARAABI, KAALA PATHAR, DEEWAR, SHOLAY, MAIN AZAAD HUN, SAUDAGAR, ALAAP, SHAKTI , NAMAK HARAAM, ANAND ETC WILL ALWAYS BE A CLASSIC……THE PERFORMANCE OF AMITABH IN SHARAABI IS WAY WAY BETTER THAN DILIP (A STEREOTYPE ACTOR)……AND ALSO BIGB HAS MUCH VERSATALITY TO BE POPULAR IN CLASSES AS WELL AS MASSES…….A BLIND SRK AND DILIP FAN LIKE YOU WONT AGREE WITH ME AND I KNEW THAT ALREADY…….BUT AGAIN YOU ARE FREE TO BELIEVE WHATEVER YOU WANT……

  65. you talk about rationality and yourself assume certain things :
    “so dou wanna say amitabh is the best actor india has ever produced?ohhhhhhhhhhh what a pity!”

    WHEN DID I SAY BIGB IS BEST ACTOR OF INDIA????…..OFFCOURSE THERE ARE OTHER GOOD ACTORS BUT DEFNITELY NOT SRK AND DILIP AS BOTH ARE MONOTONOUS ACTORS…….I DONT DENY THAT IN SOME OF MOVIES AMITABH WAS ALSO MONOTONOUS BUT HE HAS ABILITY TO INVENT HIMSELF AND HE IS REALLY FLEXIBLE……I DONT TALK BLINDLY AND I CAN GIVE ZILLION EXAMPLES……

    BIGB MAY NOT BE BEST ACTOR OF INDIA BUT DEFNITELY BETTER THAN SRK AND DILIP…..OFFCOURSE THERE ARE OTHER ACTORS LIKE KAMAL HASSAN AND MOHANLAL THAT MAY FIT IN THAT CATEGORY BUT CERTAINLY NOT SRK AND DILIP ……THATS FOR SURE……

  66. ofcourse he is a better actor than srk but dilip i guess is debatable.

  67. i guess u havent seen the movies of dilip kumar in 50′s.have u seen him in devdas, jugnu, nayadaur,kohinoor shakti etc.first go n see then argue with me.

  68. ITS YOUR GUESS THAT ITS DEBATABLE BUT I AM SURE THAT HE IS MILES AND MILES AHEAD OF DILIP AS FAR AS ACTING AND VERSATALITY IS CONCERNED…….I CAN GIVE YOU SEVERAL PROOFS ……..

    DILIP CANNOT BE PUT IN THE CATEGORY OF MOHANLAL,AMITABH, KAMAL, SANJIV, NASEER ETC….

    YES I CAN AGREE HE CAN BE PUT IN THE LIMITED ACTING CATEGORY ACTORS LIKE RAJ KAPOOR, DEVANAND, SHAMMI KAPOOR, RAJENDRA KUMAR, MANOJ KUMAR ETC….

  69. do u knw dilip kumar won the best actor awards ffor 3 consecutive yrs frm 55-57.howcome u think that he was not a great actor?i think u r too obsessed with amitabh.thats what blind amitabh fans like u do.

  70. DUDE I HAVE SEEN ALL THE MOVIES THAT YOU ARE MENTIONING …….TRSUT ME HE CANNOT BE PUT IN THE VERSATILE ACTOR CATEGORY…….I KNOW YOU WONT AGREE JUST LIKE THESE BLIND SRK FANS WONT AGREE THAT BIGB IS BETTER ACTOR THAN SRK…….

  71. thats what u think.but ask anyone who has knowledge abut hindi movies abut dilip kumar whether he was a great actor or not?

  72. DO YOU KNOW THAT SRK WON BEST ACTOR AWARD FOR DIL TO PAAGAL HAI, KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI AND DEVDAS…….SO YOU WANT ME TO BELIVE THAT HE IS A GREAT ACTOR????

    WELL IT CLEARLY TELLS WHO IS OBSSESSED WITH WHOM

  73. if u think amitabh was miles ahead of dilip then he could have surely dominated dilip in shakti which unfortunately went otherwise.

  74. I DONT JUDGE ANY ACTOR ON THE BASIS OF AWARDS WON…….I THINK THAT AMITABH WAS AN UNDESERVING CANDIDATE TO GET BEST ACTOR AWARD FOR “AMAR AKBAR ANTHONYY” AND “DON”………INSTEAD HE SHOULD HAVE GOT AWARD FOR DEEWAR, TRISHUL,ALAAP, NAMAK HALAAL, MAIN AZAAD HUN ETC..

    HENCE I DONT JUDGE ANY ACTOR BY AWARD…….IN 1973 AMITABH DESEARVED AWARD FOR “ZANJEER” BUT IT WENT TO RISHI KAPOOR FOR “BOBBY”…….WHAT A CRAP!!!

    THERE IS POLITICS IN SUCH AWARDS AND I DONT BELIEVE IN ALL THESE……..

  75. but the time is quite different now.now the awards are a jokes.but during the period of dilip it was put in a high esteem n.

  76. GO AND WATCH THE CLIMAX SCENE OF SHAKTI ON YUOUTUBE AND JUST SEE WHO OUTSHONE WHOM!!!!!…….AND EVERYONE KNOWS THAT IT WAS AMITABH WHO STOLE THE SHOW……..JUST COMPARE THE ACTING SKILLS OF BOTH IN THE END SCENE……THAT WILL TELL THE WHOLE STORY WHO KNOW S ACTING BETTER AND WHO IS A TYPED ACTOR!!!!!!

  77. deserving people used to get the awards.but after some years expecially towards the mid 60′s it all became mere popular awards.

  78. TIME IS SAME…..THERE WAS POLITICS THEN ALSO…….EARLIER THERE WAS NO INVIOLVEMENT OF PUBLIC……5-6 PEOPLE SITTING IN JURY USE TO GIVE AWARDS WHOMEVER THEY THOUGHT IS LIKED BY THEM…..

    IN 1973 AMITABH DESEARVED AWARD FOR “ZANJEER” BUT IT WENT TO RISHI KAPOOR FOR “BOBBY”…….WHAT A CRAP!!!

  79. u cant judge an actor frm one scene dude.even srk was brilliant in the climax of mohabbatein.so do u wanna say srk is better than amitabh?i guess its not like that.

  80. infact srk was better than amitabh in mohabbatein 4 sure.but that doesnt mean srk is better than amitabh.

  81. Talk about the whole movie dude……in shakti amitabh shows dilip what is acting is about……yes i have watched thw hole movie 10 times as its one of my fav amitabh’s movie…..

    same applies with mohabbatien where amitabhs acting ruled and not SRK’s good written dialogues………Amitabhs character was negative but not acting……To say SRK is better tahn amitabh is a sheer joke…….WHEREVR AMITABH USE TO COME IN THE MOVIE THERE WAS A PIN DROP SILENCE AND PEOPLE USE TO STOP THEIR BREATH WHEN HE STARTS SPEAKING HIS DIALOGIUES WITH HIS INTENSE BARITONE VOICE AND EYES…….ANYONE CAN SEE THAT!!!

  82. HE ACTED IN THE WHOLE MOVIE OF MOAHABBATEIN WITH LESS DIALOGUES AND HIS EYES!!!…….IT’S ONE OF MY FAV AMITABH MOVIES AFTER HIS COMEBACK IN MAJOR SAAB…….

  83. anyways i have no energy to convince that srk was better than big b in mohabbatein.i guess u r too obsessed with amitabh.havent seen a true biased fan like u dude.

  84. YOU DONT HAVE TO COINVINCE ANYONE THAT srk’s acting was better than amitabh BECAUSE EVERYONE KNOW THAT ACTING WISE srk WAS NOWHERE NEAR AMITABH IN mohabbatein…….except for the fact that his role was…….if anyone can proove me that srk would have done the role of “narayan shankar” better than amitabh, then I can be convinced that he was better actor than amitabh……THE ROLE DONE BY srk CAN BE DONE BY HRITHIK, AAMIR OR AKSHAY and even amitabh (if he had been younger)

    AND YES YOU THINK I HAVENT SEEN A BLIND SRK AND DILP FAN LIKE YOU???…….WELL THE ANSWER IS YES

  85. the same opnion is for SHAKTI…….Amitabh can do the role done by Dilip in shakti without much “overacting”…….you can see his performance in Ek Rishtaa or Baghbaan…….BUT THE ROLE DONE BY AMITABH IN SHAKTI CANT BE EVEN IMAGINED TO BE DONE BY DILIP…….

  86. i AM NOT EXXAGARETING LIKE YOU……I THINK I TALK WITH MORE RATIONALITY THAN YOU OFFCOURSE……..

    ON ONE HAND I CAN AGREE THAT AMITABH WAS UNDESERVING TO GET SOME AWARD AND EVEN THERE ARE MANY GOOD ACTORS BETTER THAN HIM……..

    BUT YOU KEEP ON INSISTING THAT SRK AND DILIP ARE BETTER THAN HIM WHICH IS UTTER NONSENSE

  87. LOL @ Nitin. Amitabh considers Dilip as his guru and his fav actor ever. He said he has learnt lot from DK and you can see how DK ate him in Shakti, the whole media, public, critics all gave thumps up to DK including all the awards.

  88. @master……dude just go through the link of shakti and see yourself who ate whom???…..Amitabh never say bad words to his seniors….He has even praised Rajkapoor and Balraaj sahani……media public gave thumbs down becoz SHAKTI was a flop movie……

    As far as award is concern the bunch of 3-4 biased people gave the award to dilip……just like when the same jokers gave award to Rishi kappoor in 1973 for bobby against amitabh’s zanjeer……there was no populars award at that time otherwise people would have told who is talent of acting…..dont hype too much dude

  89. Nitin, I don’t need to watch the link as I own the DVD. I’m not sure why to compare Amitabh with DK and prove his talent his more than DK. Do you know the kind of performances DK gave in early 50′s when they had stupid cameras, no proper lighting and no TV, Videos to watch movies and learn acting. Obviously the next generation were better prepared by watching DK, RK and Dev Anand’ movies. Similarly the present genx people are more prepared for the movies. The path finders are always more valuable than the path followers. Amitabh always said his famous character name ‘VIJAY’, he based it always on Sunil Dutt’s phenomenal VIJAY character of Mother India and he continued the same anger, frustration and name from him and he was the original Vijay of Film Industry.

  90. Nitin, we are talking about BOXOFFICE comparision and NOT ACTING comaprision. Acting is subjective, so there can never be proper comparision for it.

  91. Nitin (or is it Sattu Darling):

    Learn to say things in an effective manner. Long post and long essay don’t mean much. Please do not let you inability become our burden. Seems like because you cannot impress us with substance you are trying to baffle us with bullshit.

    Also this is not your http://www.NaachGaoAurJhootBolo.com hence don’t try to slip and slide on the basis of semantics. Yes DVD has not as available as it is today during the early days of SRK but Videos were. The curse of piracy existed (PERIOD). This was not the case during the entire Bachchalan era (days, maybe months, perhaps the two years when he was on top). Big B had it easy because of lack of Piracy and lack of competition from Cable and Internet. Today when without doubt DVD (& Videos), Internet et al are making a dent, nonetheless SRK remain unhindered, he is the Don.

    I agree with you that it is not easy for Big B these days. Unfortunately He is old and dilapidated. Watching him today is like seeing an old lame horse struggle to cross the finish line. I am concerned that after his enthusiastic Yeast Mambo in JBJ he might need a hip replacement. I am more concerned that Johnny Depp might subject him to some rough prostrate rub in Mira Nair’s Shantaram. Trust me Satyam I am with you bro, I feel your pain.

    You asked me to name an actor in Bollywood who was active and popular at 65. Well I wonder why you ask me such easy question. Well fat boy, at around 65 Dilip Kumar made the very popular Karma. At 69 he made Saudagar (all shows sold out for the first week, compare that to 10% audience for Nisabdh).

    BTW when did Filmfare became the magazine of record for box office?

  92. About Video piracy, I can safely say that I have seen Baazigar, Darr and DDLJ first day with the video cassette. Infact, I had already seen DDLJ for 5-6 times within its first week of release. It is phenomenal that still it went and did that type of business.

  93. Master

    Piracy was rampant during Video days. I agree.

  94. Dear All,

    All the 93 comments are in response to ‘Amitabh Bachchan Vs Shah Rukh Khan Boxoffice Comparision’ Posted by aksfilmi on July 31st, 2007.

    Its a great attempt and really good to see the box office success enjoyed by both superstars.

    However, its unfair to compare the overall career records of both stars. Because Sharukh leads with 66% whereas Amitabh with 53.6% success ratios. If we look at the number of films, Sharukh acted only in 47 whereas Amitabh acted in 127. So ultimately Sharukh’s success is way up.

    Let’s make the comparison in much more acceptable way. Since Sharukh acted in only 47 movies, let’s make the comparison according to that.

    So I have modied the above statistics and created two more statistics: ‘Statistic 1′ indicates the box office records of both stars since their debut(first 47 films – head to

    head). ‘Statsitic 2′ indicates the box office records of both stars since 1992(after Sharukh’s debut).

    I believe this comparison would be a fair one.

    I request you to go through it and have your say on it….

  96. People talk about Rational but this forum is filled with fools………There are N no. of statisctcs filled in various websites and people and i dont give a shit …….

    Inspite of my telling that Amitabh has worked ith many types of directors and not only worked keeping box office in view unlike SRK who does a movie keeping only boxoffice in view…..

    YOu at random choose 40-50 movies of amitabh and make all sorts of bullcrap startistics and try to convince yourself but inreality you are rooving yoursel as biggest dumb in this forum……..

    Even a layman knows that SRK is basically working with only selected banners and production houses keeping boxofice in his mind……..That ws never the case wth amitabh……He acted with everytype of directors in all eras……….

    You are comparing a guy who did just 47 movies to a person who did approx. 127 movies……that itself shows that amitabh has capability to work in every GENRE of movies that no other superstar ever did in the history of Indian cinema……there ae many genres which may not work at boxoffice but one should be talented to do that and thats what is the case with amitabh………

    In 70s time was different, people were different, tastes were diferent…….Today time is different , people are different , tastes ae different…….But one thing is common…..Do you know what???

    Amitabh !!!!……He was popular in masses and classes in 70s and he is still popular in masses and classes…….and thats what I call as “TRUE SUPERSTAR”…….SRK doesnt have that versatality to even survive in his 60s as a star (forget about actor)…….

    At the age of 64 amitabh can win best actor award in populars poll as well as critics poll……..Now thats what I call a” true superstar and an actor”……Its so insulting that people even take the name od SRK with amitabh….

    Blind people have their own defnition but rational people hav their own…Fortunately the no. of rational people are more in this world!!!

    God bless you all

  97. there is no point arguing with nitin .

  98. Poor Nitin, he is getting beat up by one and all. I am reminded of the scene in the movie Airplane, where everyone lines up to beat this hysterical passenger.

  99. Trust me guys, I am not at all diverted with all that you write for me and give me varuous titles….If 5-6 blind SRK fans write all sorts of things I am not diveretd but instaed I AM SO HAPPY THAT YOU ARE ACTALLY READING MY POST AND REALIZING THAT IF PEOPLE RALY READ WHAT I AM WRITING THEY WILL UNDERSTAND MY RATIONAL VIEW (Even if they write against me in message box).

    I just want people to read what I am writing and they will understand what I am trying to say (even if they are SRK fans)

  100.

    yes dude i know what kind of things you can reminded of (beating and violence)……..but trust me thats not the thing that i can do so…….

    Infact I can pity on you guys and pray to God to give some brains to you…….If people have read what I was saying they will realize even if they wont accept publicly……

    To even mention the name of SRK with amitabh is an nsult to amitabh……and thats what you guys are trying to do but you wont succeed as I am here now

  102. I apologise that I put my short form NKS in previous replies…….I am writing this is just to avoid confusions

  103. Nitin

    If Big B is so big then why does he accept second fiddle roles in SRK movies ? Why is it that we don’t see SRK playing second fiddle to Big B ?

    Come on say it. The answer is obvious.

  104. Like I said people like you dont even have common sense to talk atleat some rational…….

    What you expect SRK to do when he becomes 60 and ofered a role of father???……Will he play DDLJ type of roles in 60s???

    As far as BigB is concerned he is playing roles that suits his age and give him more chance to experiment (becoz he is versatile) whether he is playing supporting/central actor with a young hero (like ajay, akshay, SRK, Saif, abhishek,)…….

    Not only that he is also playing main roles like BLACK, BAGHBAN, CHEENI KUM, NISHAD etc… when scriopt demands them…..

    Now coming to your baseless points:

    1)Mohabbatein :can you say amitabh played second fiddle??……..Can you een imagine moabbatein without amiabh???…….which other actor you think would have played role of “Naraan shankar” better than amitabh???…….It was his central character and not second fiddle…….

    2)K3G and KANK : When two young actors are aleady playing two main roles what and he gets the rle of a father, what else you can expect from him??…….he cannot go around trees and dance with heroines when already there are two heroes

    3)Paheli : a bullcrap SR film wwhere amtabh didnt eevn charge anything from producer SRK for playing a guest appearence on request…….

    Jusr come out from your irrational thining and you will get some enlightment……

  105. This is a completely useless comparrison. For one thing many movies that were catogorized as flops were indeed hits, such as Satte Pe Satta, The Great Gambler and Desh Premee. SRK can never compare with Amitabh. Amitabh has not only a bigger persona in india but in the whole world. He was dubbed the one man industry in a time filled with great actors, thus proving his success and popularity. Now a days, there are only three or four main heros back then there were many. Also, Amitabh is still dominating the industry at the age of 64. There is noone that commands that type respect or popularity with any cinema. And he gets roles specially written for him, no one else gets that. Furthermore, his acting is flawless. The truth is SRK is not respected for his acting talent but for his fan base, and Amitabh is respected for both! Could anyone else have given a performance like Deewar or Black? The truth is that there has never been anyone like Amitabh Bachchan in the world before nor will there be anyone like him. SRK cannot even hope to be the dirt under his feet.

  106. What you expect SRK to do when he becomes 60 and ofered a role of father???……Will he play DDLJ type of roles in 60s???
    This question has been answered. Whatevr he does he will not be eroding his legacy like BIg B

    As far as BigB is concerned he is playing roles that suits his age and give him more chance to experiment (becoz he is versatile) whether he is playing supporting/central actor with a young hero (like ajay, akshay, SRK, Saif, abhishek,)…….
    Dude, he is playing second or third fiddle. Get you head out of your arse.

    1)Mohabbatein :can you say amitabh played second fiddle??……..Can you een imagine moabbatein without amiabh???…….which other actor you think would have played role of “Naraan shankar” better than amitabh???…….It was his central character and not second fiddle…….
    Amrish Puri could have done that role. But no once could have done SRK’s role. The movie is about SRK. He is the central character.

  107. @shaan,

    lolz……..Frustrtaion frustration and frustration!!!!!………like i said i tried to give you reply in your language and you cant stand giving useless arguements……..i know you have no brains……anyone who reads your and mine arguement will laugh at you…….i knew your standard the comment you started this comedy thread……..i knew you cant give me direct answers to all the points and deviating from the topic…….you cant even talk to me eye to eye…..you have no balls dude…..after reading your amnd mine messages people will know your standard…….

    better luck next time dude….try 100 more threads an i am here to give you proper reply as i have been doing and let everyone read it…..amitabh is here for last 38 years (almost the age of SRK)……many SRKs came and gone but Amitabh is at his place for last 38 years working in 127 films in every type of genre, never cared of only box office, worked with every type of drectors, never used media hype to promote his films in early years, had a big competitor when he entered in industry, started KBC-1 and got highest TRP rating without using his star power and heavy promotion, got competition from paralled and arts film actors in late 70s and early 80s, giving solo hit films even now, faced the video piracy in late 70s and early 80s in the VCR era, when returned in 98 faced a big competition from 1000 of cable channels, DVD piracy, young actors, compuer ames etc.. and still won best actor in popular’s and critics poll and still can manage solo hit on his own at 65…………

    I know dude you are feeling the defeat but you wont accept…..I can undertand that…and all the people who read my replies they also realize this (aAND ALL I WANT OTHERS JUST TO READ WHAT I WRITE AND MY PURPOSE IS SOLVED)…..your purpose for writing this thread seems to loose……..i can understand your frustration ……May God bless you

  108. @ Mehveen Riaz

    I am glad there are some rational people like you in this forum who can understand the simple thing that SRK stands nowhere infront of amitabh both actingwise and starwise…….

    nice comment buddy….I am gald more and more people are reading my posts…….

  109. Lol…..joke pe joke!;)

  110. Akhshay

    You are such an inspiration. Thank you. Will work harder to post more jokes.

  111. Hey guys, don’t fight. srk is the best. he had all kind of roles from villain to lover or action. But ab stick to his angry man image. the hits you are saying about ab now a days is all character roles. that could be done by any other hero of olden days or like nana, dharmendra, amrish puri, rishikapoor etc. but the roles portrayed by srk can’t play by other. can you imagine the films like ddlj, kkhh, mhn, mohabbatein and now chak de with out srk…….with out srk is like it’s the end of hindi cinema. ok……………..so, stop quarelling and realise the facts.

  112. Friends…. I respect your emotions. Trust me…. We will not achieve anything by arguing who is the best. Indian cinema has given us two talents in the form of Amitabh and Sharukh. Let’s enjoy their work and wish them all success.

  113. hello mr. nitin,

    these people mustafa, somadatta and shankar is waste of time. they r blind supporters of srk and their blindness is so deep that they can’t see any fact and can’t hear anything except beating the drum that srk is the best srk is the best. they don’t accept that amitabh is the better than srk. now people talk a lot about box office etc. etc. see today after 30 years people still cherish amitabh movies on tv and after 30 years from now on poeple won’t remembers ki this movie has earned this much success at box office what matters is good movie and good acting which amitabh is having and that is why his movies are still cherished by people today even after 30 years. just imagine any of srk movie after 30 years nobody will watch and there is every chance that people may forget all his movies except these three people mr mustafa, mr. soma datt and mr. shankar. see what counts is good movie and good acting but not the box office moeny.

  114. Hello Ms. Kiran

    Let us talk about Big B movies that people do cherish. Let us deflate the hype here. Which movie should we talk about first ? You make the pick.

  115. Even a layman knows that SRK is basically working with only selected banners and production houses keeping boxofice in his mind……..That ws never the case wth amitabh……He acted with everytype of directors in all eras……….

    Its not true ,
    All Sucussfull banners and production houses wants to work with SRK not with Amitab,abhishek. Even Amitab tried to get some role for his son and himself in such banners and production houses. But SRK is not trying to get the chance. Thay are comming his way.

    SRK keeping boxofice in his mind. true, its good for his future.He cant accept all offers given by all production houses
    to make the money like Amitab. Quality is important then Quntity
    and at the same time production houses should surive so that they come up with next project. Its better to work in good project rather then accept all the offers for the sake of Money

    “Pepole get Less offers have Less chance of choosing”

    “Pepole will not have dare to :reject some offers and work only in good banners”. It needs self confidence … SRK has that…
    and same time SRK got lot of offer to choose. Thank God.

    Good banners always signs Good Talent at any cost…….

    Amitab added Aishwary to his family only because of Money and fame even he knows about Salman , vivek etc …Its shows love towards money and fame

    Some people compared SRK against Saney diol,abishek,ritik But Failed ….Finally Not got sucessful young star name to comapre with SRK, So comparing now with Amitab.

    Even amitab is not compared with other star’s in his youn age like this . NO competition …NO competition.

    Fact will change day by day.Please accept the FACT.

  116. There shud not be any comparison between Big B n king khan..they both are realy actors and their acting shows that all…

    Love
    sweets

  117. Bottom Line !!

    Sharukh Khan is some one who BIG B wanted to be !!!
    Big B is some one who Sharukh wants to be !!

  118. very correctly said mr. chetan. srk only works with big banners and that too very polished roles. ask him to do a role what aamir has done in laggan, he will/can’t do. ask him to do a role what ajay devgan has done in gangajal he definitely won’t/can’t do that. arey leave amitabh! Amitabh is league apart which these blind fans of srk won’t accept. just a small example, amitabh at the age of 64 is giving this srk (now in his hey days)a very tough competition and this bores the testimony to the fact that how powerful is amitabh at this age when most of his contemporary actors are almost taken retirement. And just because of insecurity these srk fans are writing all sorts of bull shits about amitabh. as somebody said for srk that it is not for nothing that the King Khan became a superstar and so is amitabh. It is not for nothing that amitabh was voted actor of the millenium, he is the first asian to be immortalized at madam tussads wax museum, he is the first indian actor to be felicited with doctorate by two british universities, like this there are many international award which he won and in most of them he is the first indian actor to be felicited with that particular award. somebody above said quality that matters and not quantity for that my answer is thatt if amitabh movies has not quality then why people are still watching most of his movies everyday on television and why they copied don. this is completely ridiculous. Just after 10 years from now on i bet nobody will watch srk movies as they are watching amitabh movies now even after 30 years. but mujhe yehi kehna padega ki bahre ke kan me shankh phonkane se koi fayda nahin hai. ye srk fans sab vaise hi hain jinko srk ke siva reality kuch dikhta hi nahi hai. i pity them for their restricted mentality kyonki wo reality to manane se saf inka kartein hain. i am a true amitabh fan but that doesn’t stop me say that yes srk is now sells and his films becomes hit (here the point must be noted that not quality wise but box office wise) but don’t compare him with a legend like amitabh which is really very insulting. Amitabh is a league apart. u people accept it or not but this is the fact.

  119. Shah rukh Khan has done the maximum struggle than any other actor in this country . he was never compared with Big B till 2004 year but as he started gaining world wide publicity and critical acclaim , to show him down he was compared with Big b . Why people are jealous of him , bacause SRK’s Don is bigger hit than Big B’s ..? why ? SRK has shown maximum consistency at Box Office giving consecutive hits since 2001 [after K3g ] . This will be stupidity to compare SRK with Hrithik etc . SRK has 2 all time Blockbuster … and he was only single star in both DDLJ and KKHH . We cant give credit of Sholay’s success to Big b alone .

  125. I think SRK did a great job in Don and the movie is much more appreciable than that of the period of AB.
    However I don’t like SRK’s (comic?) thrills in movie Shakti. He shouldn’t have been there as the ‘hero’. He ain’t the “bhai”-type !

  126. Well its ur personal View

    U can Ignore Shakti @ Sheen

  127. amitabh is a very big fucker.he sucks,he is bloody jealous with the huge sucess of the king of film industry shahrukh

  128. This is just Bullshit, none of these two are legends.
    Big B is an asshole who always plays the same role and has the same look(the white goatee and that vagina hair on his head). He just copies Sir. Sean Connery all the time.
    As for Mr.Khan he’s a piece of crap to. Same acting day in and out, and the same look(a modern Amitabh hairstyle) and he is always imitating Amitabh. Mr.Khan is not the best actor but is rather the best imitator. Then who’s best of between them??? I would love to say Nana Patekar, but I would say Shahrukh Khan. The only film I really liked, was Devdas.
    As for the mentality behind this poll, I would say: stop counting hits and income, start to compare acting ability.
    It’s to many factors thats make a movie hit or flop-

  129. Mr Nithin,
    Why u are trying to take amithab side. we all knows that amithab is a good actor and he is Superstar, But when comparing to Sharukh there is big gap in between these to, Sharukh is in First place and nobody can touch him. he o phenominal actor. DDLJ is a better answer for that. Till now its running and break the record of Shilay so many years before. Sharukh khan is a ideal person his attittude was very good. and Everybody loves him. Dont try to compare amithab with sharukh. Sharukh is untouchable, amithab cannot act like sharukh, he is energetic and he is genious. he proved it again in CHAK DE INDIA.
    Watch that movie and may you will forget Amithab Bachan.

  130. Comparing BigB and SRK is like comparing God(BigB) and normal man(SRK). SRK is money minded person he always went behind money and success. SRK had a succes only with few directors like Yash chopra and Karan johar. But amitabh acted with so many directors. BigB has tried different types movies with different directors and got success. But SRK movies had a succesful formula then also his movies were flop. Even SRK tried to replace BigB in KBC-3 but sorry to say he’s not able to stand against amitabh style and charishma. So I request you to not to compare BigB with SRK as no one compares God(BigB) with normal man(SRK).

  131. All are telling about chak de india. Chak de india got a slow response becasue of SRK. If aamir khan was in SRK’s place in Chak De India, it would have got bigger response. Aamir khan would have portrayed the role better than SRK. Some are telling that no can replace SRK in DDLJ, KKHH, but it’s fact that Aamir (or) Salman (or) Akshay would have replaced SRK in those movies. Abt amitabh movies, no one can replace amitabh in Black, Sharabhi, Agnepath, Khuda Gawah, Virudh, Cheeni kum, Mr Natwarlal, Hum, Aakhree Rastha, Sattae pe Satta, Deewar, Trishul, Don… there are so many movies like that. Some are telling that Amitabh is a money minded person but u know that he has acted without taking any money for Shootout Lokandwala, Ajooba, Black and also in SRK movie paheli.

  132. Hey shivakumar………r u drunk????? u must be otherwise hw can u talk rubbish about the 1 n only KING KHAN????? what do u mean he ran afta money n success???? who doesnt???? u dont???? N plz dont talk about his personality……do u knw 1 of tha main factors y he is loved by billions is because he is a brilliant human being a very good example of a muslim……. hw can u say he is only popular with few directors???? he has done much beta films with asutosh (sawdes)n farhan (DON) n now with shimit (chak de) which is da slap on people’s faces like u dat he doesnt try diff roles…SRK is faaaaaaaar better actor n a much better human being than amitabh who is sooo resiced dat he didnt invite any muslim in his son’s wedding. Sham on him…….n all those who r jealouse of SRK’s popularity n his versitality shud shut their mouths cz SRK has answerd all of them back with his each n every film……….SRK ROCKS

  133. Aamir khan is better actor than SRK. He is a versatile actor. He has already done different kind of role than SRK and got success also. All SRK blockbuster film are only yash raj film and karan johar film. SRK is a popular actor there is no doubt.Also he is a good speaker and every body likes him. But, as an actor Aamir is better than SRK.

  134. SRK’s era is over. Soon he will be out dated because of lack of variety and repeated acting. Aamir and Hritik are any time better than SRK. Please don’t insult Amitabh by comparing with SRK. If you want to compare SRK then Raj Babbar and Mukesh Khanna are better choices. You can find lots of similarity in these 3.

    Regards,
    Afzal

  135. hi..

    kya bakwas hai yaar srk is the one n only king of bollywood at present time. and he has proved it because when abhi. big b. n bobby deol & many more actors were in the fildm jbj to film ka kya hua ……

    and SRK the only 1 person jisne CHAK DE ko bina kisi love story ke hit karke dikhya . jiska impact aap Indian Women Hockey main abhi dekh sakte ho

  136. are main ek baat to kehna bhool hi gaya ki AB ke films tab hit thi jab logo ke paas dekhne ke liye T.V. nahin tha aur koi entertainment ka option nahin tha…..

    Lekin SRK ki films aaj bhi hit hoti hain jabki logo ke pass film dekhne ke liye time hi nahin hota…

    So SRK is better than AB….

    any doubt

  137. Aamir khan is the best.

  138. hi guys

    why are you comparing the sick big b with srk. Boss big B has never taken risk with his career and always done movies for money unlike srk who has taken big risks and dosent care about what the damn india media says.

    Big B had all the media support right from the begining not forgetting the bofors scam and the abcl collapse and all the mess he created with R Gandhi still media has white washed all his sins to make him super start. thts why we indian people are sooooo stupid and thats why we have many politicians like big b ruling our a** .

    SRK is a true star and he knows what is takes to get success in movie he is like Raj Kapoor who of modern times who once said that show must go on and for SRK everything is a show and he does not cares about flops or hits.

    And for those naysayers who think SRK works only with Yash Raj and Johars think again its not him its they who want to work with SRK and Yash Raj has said 100 times that his fav actor is SRK and not BIG or freaking small B. So before pouring out your emotions use your mind because moviedom is not emotional game its a mind game and thats why SRK is winning leaps and bound.

    END NOTE – CHAK DE INDIA IS BECOMING A SUPER HIT WITH ITS ROCK STEADY COLLECTION IN THE THIRD WEEK. CHECK BOX OFFICE INDIA AND THIS FILMIKHABAR WEBSITE

    DON THE CHASE BEGINS
    KANK
    CHAK DE INDIA…
    m sure these are far better

  141. hello! I just want to say one thing to all srk fans amitabh has won many international awards and in most of them he is the first Indian actor or the first asian actor to have won that award and just remember his age is 64 and srk is in his hey days now also he is getting tough competition from a veteran actor and that itself speaks volumes of this man. Inspite of being a legend he never spoke about himself where as this srk go on telling the world that i am great i am sexy i am smart and i am don bla bla bla which proves the saying very correct ” Empty Vessel Makes Noise ” and he is like that.

  142. well all this talk of BIG Vs SRK is meaningless because they belong to diffrene generations.BIG b was the king from 1975 to 1985 where as SRK is ruling since 1995 till date.There is no denying the fact that BIG B is not at all a BO draw at this moment.You can go and watch his movies on the day of release to realise this.But neverthless both are great entertainers.

  143. Hey big b is no where close 2 SRK THE LEGEND… look @ big b’s new releases dey hav been back 2 back flops……n look SRK’s 1st eva release of da year is a superhit already……n more than a superhit….its a meaningful movie without any actress, song or dance which otha sports movie like lagaan had as well 2 attract ppl….but look @ SRK’s guts dat he agreed 2 be part of a movie which is cimpletely diff from rest of da bollywood movies….even 1 of my otha fav films BLACK which ws also a diff movie had a love angle in it between a young student n a teacher 2 attract ppl…….soo ppl dont take CHAK DE easily we all shud support it n look @ it from a diff angle cz its in true words a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT MOVIE from da rest….n PLZ DONT 4GET WHO IS DA STAR OF DA MOVIE>>>>SRK>>>>> so who is best so called big b or SRK?????

    N kiran i would hav seen u if u were in SRK’s position…..u would be sooooooo proud n arrogant, u wouldnt speak 2 any1 either…..so what if he says he is da best>>>>> but mind u he doesnt say it in arrogant way its just sometimes wen he jokes n he says it in funny way……i read his each n every interview where he says i am not da best or there r far beta actors than me……so what would u say now????

    JUST dont argue SRK IS DA REAL KING N MUCH BETA THAN BIG B OR SMALL B OR MIDDLE B……

  144. its waste of time to compare both
    SRK SRK SRK SRK SRK is best yarrr ….
    how many times the results will be out that big is looser and sharukh is the
    KING OF BOLLYWOOD
    AND FINALLY U WATCHED THAT SHARUKH IS THE KING
    SO STOP COMPARING……

  145. You cannot compare amitabh to SRK. Amitabh has given 35yrs in film industries.And SRK has given 15 yrs. So you cannot compare Amitabh to SRK. SRK is great entertainer.People like SRK.He is super star.At the age of 64, Amitabh still getting film fare ward, national award for black.Both are super star. If you want to compare between both? then you can compare SRK AND DILIP KUMAR.WHO IS BETTER ACTOR. Stop compare amitabh and SRK. Both are great entertainer.

  146. well all here who have posted against srk… calling him as imitator.. or telling that he alwayz look for.. money.. and media alwayz goes behind him… let me tell u… that… he is one of the finest actor i have seen in my life… his struggle from tele serials to getting movie role to making it to superstar is not a normal thing… i am a great fan of big b.. too so i cant say who is best becoz for me both are best and superb… if u want to see real amitabh u have too watch his oldies and in recent black… khakhee.. i have a huge collection of both of them… and really dislike this comparision … and saying that big b movies got hit in 80s becoz of non availabitlity of computer other gadgets is wrong thing… becoz gadgets won’t count at all…. what counts is actors acting and big b is having great acting.. talent… and same is case with srk… at starting of his career choosing negative roles was not an easy taks and he took it.. and gaved new look to flim industry… and slowly he shifted to lover boy image.. and from there his super star status journey began… let critics accuse him of doing same role or working with same director… it doesnt matter becoz before he has worked with diffrent kinda directors.. and done done variety of roles.. and swades is also one of his best performance.. and now chak de is all time best role… and i love mohobatien as it bourght noth of my fav actors together and i am dieing too see both of them toghether… so both are best in there own wayz so cut this crap thing….

  147. I hate seeing these comparisons. I wonder how easily people jump to conclusion.
    On one hand there are around 40 years and on other 15. Let SRK reach there, let him survive that long or he will be another sehwag and will be out soon. If he survives that long then we can compare. We simply can’t define AB or what he was in in 70’s and 80’s. As someone said AB is responsible for poor quality of cinema in that period. That’s where my point is!!!!. His popularity was such that he singlehandedly drove many crap movies to success. He emerged defeating a reigning superstar (Rajesh Khana). He killed all the competition and was one man army without any doubt that too when there were many capable actors around.
    He got a national award for best newcomer in his first movie. Best supporting actor(third film) where he was pitted against a powerful author backed character of Rajesh Khanna. He showed his mantle again when he took all the applause in Namakharaam when again he was pitted against author backed character of rajesh khanna. After that we all know how soon Rajesh Khanna vanished.
    Talking about confidence!!!!! He is a man who was rejected from All India Radio for his voice ( where was Indira Gandhi if she helped him so much). He was rejected and ridiculed by many actresses for his height and voice.
    Sunil Dutt gave him a chance but of a character who cud not speak!!!! (a small and trivial role)
    In the very beginning of his career he worked in movies like Saudagar and Alaap (true art movies). Now if he was supported by Gandhi family why everyone was signing him when he was producing flops after flops. Then came Zanzeer and no Gandhi paid Indians to watch that. For me that is confidence!!!!!!! And that is struggle!!!!! Anyone who has seen all that can call oneself SELF-MADE. SRK was successfull from Fauji itself. Don’t know what strength he had but none of them went against him as was with AB.
    AB gave atleast a hit/super hit each year from 1973 to 1986. (Then he entered politics)

    During most of this time he was banned by media (no actor today can survive even for an year without media who has created SRK…even Amir at times needed media). India now is the most populated youth country, we(most of youth) are financially independent and first time employement rate is higher than birth rate. Moviegoers have increased in multiple numbers and watching a movie in multiplexes is a pleasing experience.

    In 1978 his six movies celebrated jubilees. Today’s actor do only two movies per year because they are warry of boxoffice but AB then was cash cow. If they are so specific about director, story, locations and no. of releases per year then atleast movies must be slightly better than those done by AB in his hey days.
    In Coolie when he had that near fatal accident the entire nation (each gali and mohalla) was praying for his good health.
    In Shakti he was pitted against Dilip kumar ( that is one of the best movies or tussle of two giants of Indian cinema). Dilip Kumar had the author backed role which demanded silence from AB in most of the confrotations he had with Dilip Kumar (as he was playing his dad) in the movie and still he created intensity out of silence. Both were nominated for best actor category and dilip got the award. Dilip is no Rajesh Khanna who would have missed a chance given an author backed role. Dilip won the award and AB hearts
    SRK may call himself DON but the new DON was no where close to older one, forget about special effects and all. When SRK repeated those dialogues the intensity was missing and it was apparent that’s why he was criticized although movie did fair business just because of curiosity factor.
    I wonder why Devdas is taken as a parameter for judging best actor. SRK used to drink for his scenes in Devdas while AB who has done many drunken scenes with perfection never resorted to drinking. See Naseeb
    Does SRk has the intensity to give one shot of Sarkar with the same dignity with which AB did the whole movie? Can he Play the character of Abhimaan, Majbur, Saudagar, Black, Kala Pathar, Deewar, Hum and many more?? The intensity and seriousness which Ab brings onscreen is gripping and that’s why he is legend.
    NIshabd, Eklavya and Cheeni kum are the creative work of that AB who doesn’t rely on box-office results to prove his mantle. He wants to satisfy the actor in himself and he is free to do it. Whereas SRK has to go through that phase when he would be in dilemma (thephase every actor goes through, the phase when lover boy image has to be transformed in to Daddy image). Thats where even AB gave many flops coupled with his financial crisis. Moreover, AB’s age factor is a hindrance in providing series of hits so even if he gives one or two hits after an interval it’s a bonus.

    Yes i agree nowadays sensible movies are made…and still most of them flop but in Amitabhs era people were so obsessed with him that directors and producers used to sign him for anything they wanted to make, senseless or sensible and many of such hopeless movies were superhits.
    When SRK entered bollywood there was no reigning superstar, AB had retired by then for few years. but, when AB entered Rajesh Khanna was reigning along with Dharmendra.
    Rajesh Khanna and SRK have had the luxury of long lasting music in almost every movie, this is not the case with AB
    AB gave seven hits in a row. And hatrick of hits 7 times
    Rose like Phoenix after seeing his financial debacle.
    according to Boxoffice india ( I don’t trust this site but for those who bring info on SRK from this site) AB was the most saleable actor for consecutive 16 years(number one without any doubt) and once in second position (the very fisrt year when he entered top three) whereas SRK is struggling for that.

    AB set his own definition of hits and superhits. Critics used to review his movies according to the standards of his own previous movies. The mass hysteria created by a movie like HUM should have been seen to be believed.
    Which record DDLJ has broken???? Sholey is still all time blockbuster with Highest (adjusted) revenues. It completed silver jubilees in 100 theatres and Golden in 40 theatres all over India. But AB is not riding only on Sholey
    I remember the review of hum which was hit but it was reviewed average according to AB standards. For your kind information Hum ran completed silver jubilees in many theaters. Still it was average.
    SRK is famous in most of the muslim populated countries and thats the reason of his overseas success, the fact is endorsed by struggling CHAK DE overseas.
    People who have grown up watching SRK say he is great, most famous and all. For them, i would like to say that SRK is good and famous, no doubt but the kind of stardom AB has enjoyed is a dream for any actor even SRK. AB HAS RULED AND SRK THINKS HE RULES.
    Even at 64 roles are designed for him. At this age he is doing a lot of character roles which are not generally very lengthy thats why we see him in many movies. it has nothing to do with money and other shit. Moreover, every actor acts for money even SRK but these semi old people have competetion to face, they are aspiring to be the ruler thats why they select their movies carefully and hence they do one or two movies in a year but AB has no such pressure he has said that he is not under pressure of commercialism. If directors are taking him and the ole is good he wud do the movies. He wants to do challenging roles irrespective of box-office results ( because age is a limitation)
    As far as Amar singh is concerned and other rich friends of AB. Having rich friends is not a crime. And even when they do sth for AB its their friendship and having seen the financial crisis when AB was declared dead (career wise and Financially) nothing wrong in doing adds.
    About support to abhishek, yeah sometimes he get emotional but after all getting emotional for son is not crime.
    And about aish-abhi, And about aish-abhi, its media and us who took interest.
    anyways no one is above board and neither AB is even he has made mistakes but after the kind of financial debacle that AB has seen it is justified….even SRK tried to bribe filmfare for the best actor award…..he himself said it after getting the award…..although filmafare rejected that bribe. so please let SRK prove. its only a beginning… And stop comparisons…one shud compare SRK with Amir.
    Even in Chak –de if we replace gals with guys then there is nothing in the movie. But yes SRK performance is good in it. Amir’s success rate is better than SRK and for god’s sake stop this nonsense of block-busters and all time block busters. By that count even Salman is equivalent or better than SRK. And someone said AB does small roles with SRK because that way AB wud be successful. Sorry dude!!!!! It was SRK who asked AB to do a small job in Paheli. AB didn’t even charge anything for it and SRK was so stupid that he sent a cheque of 1 crore to AB but didn’t sign it….and it was SRK who wanted to do KBC after AB.
    My message is simple. Don’t give anyone anything before time. Let them reach the level where they command everything. When we do undue favors only we get disappointed. Nothing against SRK… let him work and let him prove………don’t spoil his mind or he will do crap things like DON again and again.

  148. waah dhirendra
    chaa gaye yaar
    wat a reply to the Big B haters
    and now get ready for the
    fanatic reply form these haters
    i am sure they will be thinking
    wat to reply

    poor fellows

  149. abe bevakoof racist dheerendra,

    its not about that its about success and success at the time of crisis is success period
    and srk has proved it many times. our biased indian media tried to pull down srk … if you remember the big crap by media at the time of hritiks entry and then same crap when kank was about to release (hit for abhi and flop for srk)aur hua kya TUM JAISO KA POPAT kyuki DON for your information is one of the most successful hits of last year and overseas its BIGGER BLOCKBUSTER THAN DHOOM2. CHECK THE FIGURES IN THE MOST TRUSTED INDIAN MOVIE WEBSITES LIKE BOXOFFICEINDIA.

    IS LIYE CHAKDE BHI SUPER HIT HONE JAA RAHI HAI AUR TUM JAISE
    DO KAUDI KE RACIST LOG HAARTE JAA RAHE HAI

  150. well answered Dheerendra.
    Some rules and some thinks they rule.
    and well shahrukh is not biggest star even today.
    Toady Hrithik is more popular and big bOxoffice drwa than Shahrukh
    Khan.
    And he did not bring any mass hysteria except may be DDLJ Time.

  151. some people like rajan and dheerendra continues to leave in lala land

  152. SRK IS MUCH MUCH BETTER THAN BIG-B….SRK IS THE KING OF BOLLYWOOD….THE REAL DON….BOXOFFICE KA BADSHAH

  153. At the age of 64, Still he is competing with younger generation like SRK,AAMIR,HRITIK….ISn’t he great?

  154. Well well well…the never ending debate continues!
    As has been said by many before…first of all..this comparison does not! make sense. One one hand we have a superstar of the millennium, a man loved and adored by every generation, a man who commands a lot of respect in film circles, a man who, at one point in time was called the one man army…Amitabh Bachhan or the Big B; and on the other hand we have the reigning superstar who is also loved by all age groups, is the most solid force at the box office, an ambassador for indian movies in overseas markets and arguably the most powerful person in bollywood right now.
    Why can’t we just enjoy both of them for what they are? Big B is a legend and SRK is wel on his way to become one, if he’s not already one. Trade deatils, and hit/superhit/blockbuster..success ratio and the numerous other stupid comparisons won’t persuade people no matter how hard you try. Amitabh is an endearing legend and SRK is the reigning King of Bollywood. Amitabh is a far better actor than SRK, while SRK, though being highly inconsistent(acting wise) does come up with stellar performaces every now and then(Swades and CDI in recent memory). Do not belittle the things both these great performers have done for the Indian Film industry. Amitabh has a larger than life persona, immaculate screen presence while SRK has his witty charm and endless energy. And for God’s sake..they have a 25 year!! age difference between them…where’s the point in comparing??? Some people here..be SRK fans or Bacchan fans get very intelligent by comparing there hey days i.e. Bachhan during 75-88/89 and SRK during 95-till date…well…if u want my honest opinion…I don’t think any actor can have the kind of star/box office clout/appeal that Bacchan had during his era, and this is coming from an SRK fan!! But then..the intensity of Rajesh Khanna’s appeal during his hey days is still unmatched!! Does that mean Rajesh Khanna is a bigger superstar than Amitabh…no way! Talk about things with a perspective please..the kind of success SRK has achieved and has sustained it, is really commendable…so give him a little credit. No one says he’s the best actor…but yes he is the biggest star! and he has been that for a long time. And Amitabh, of course is inaurguably the most loved actor in Indian Cinema till date. But wait..he’s 65 right? And SRK’s only 41…atleast give him 24 more years and about a 100 more films before you bash him outright. Maybe he can’t get there…but then…maybe he can..who knows. And one more thing…all this talk of who’s a better actor; I’m an SRK fan, but I have no inhibitions in saying that Aamir and Big B are far better actors than SRK, but then Dilip Kumar, Sanjeev Kumar, Naseer Uddin Shah, Om Puri, Kamal Hasan are far better actors than Big B and Aamir too..does that make them greater than the Big B? No way! In the same way..SRK is also great…in fact one of the great 3 of Indian cinema..Big B, Dilip Kumar & SRK. Now the 3 greats which I’ve mentioned are certainly not the absolute greatest “actors” but they are the greatest film stars ever. Remember, ‘greatness’ is not always directly proportional to ‘talent’. So..to sum it up…is SRK greater than Big B? NO..not uptill now..give him 24 more years. Is Big B greater than Dilip Kumar? YES. Is Big B a better actor than Dilip Kumar? NO and so on and so forth….
    I hope you all got what I was trying to say

    Cheers!

  155. Ok, I’m new here and I just found another person posting under the name of Sunny, and he seems to be an SRK hater. And I’m an SRK fan..so to avoid confusion..I’ve added the ‘aka The Critic’ in my name:)

  156. No sunny i just dont agree with you when you said SRK is a big star but not a better actor than amir or amitabh……hw he became a star???? cz he had good looks???? or he had body like salman n john???? or he ws the son of an established actor in the industry???? He made him self called star by most of the people cz he was n is a FANTEEEEEEEEEEEESTIC actor…..without gr8 acting hw long can some1 rule film industry like bollywood for 19 years????? SO he is a FANTESTIC actor thats y he is gaining more n more fame with each passing day. SO i just dont agree with any1 who says amir or amitabh r better actors than him……..then why they arnt as popular as him????? why is SRK ruling since the day he step into movies???? This shows he is the best actor in business……..n plz dont call yourselfe SRK fan when you say that amir or amitabh are better actors than him…..if you were a true fan you would have none your actor’s versitality n would never say dat some1 is btter than SRK………..

    SRK IS THE KING………

  157. amitabh is just bal of srk.amitabh is just a star and srk is a superstar.no comparision between srk and amittabh.srk is far more ahead than amittabh. big b is just a loosser.and he is a son of srk in acting.when amittabh came there was no compeetition but in today compeetion become more&morebut srk still maintain his position as king khan.in short words “srk is dad of amittabh bacchan.

  158. srk is one of the worst actor in this country. he does’t know the acting.he is serviving because of big banner.

  159. SRK IS SERVIVING BECAUSE OF YASH RAJ FILM AND KARAN JOHAR FILM (DAAR,DDLG,DIL TO PAYAL HAI,K2H2,K3G,VEERZARA,CHAK DE, MOHOBATIEN…). aamir is much better than srk. He is versatile actor.

  160. Hmmmm…. interesting comparison, but based on what? I don’t see anything on which this hit or flop category is based! Fans of one or the other can argue until they turn blue in the face, but IMHO, the great B is unbeatable. You can only compare when SRK is still acting at 65!!! The great B is an actor first and foremost, while SRK is a star. The difference, of course, is that SRK likes to THINK he is an actor (hence his statements that he is better than B – notice he feels the ‘need’ to knock down AB a notch or two because, maybe, just maybe, he is awed by him?) but he cannot hold a candle. Think Rajesh Khanna, who also did the same twitchy acting with great success in the 70′s, but then his overinflated ego led to his downfall with such movies as 007, etc. When SRK has done 127 films, then, and ONLY then, can one compare the “hit” and “flop” ratio…… just my two cents, and the topic is now closed for discussion in my book. So SRK fans who beg to differ, you are entitled to your opinion and I to mine, but I will read no responses to this, so have at it…. !!! ;P

  161. dear readers. I have gone through all the comments and i can only say that the comparisons are baseless.I have a filmfare magazine with me in which Yash Chopra clearly says that the media were against amitabh in the 70′s and 80′s. that is the reason why he did not get best actor award for deewar. the film won every other award except best actor. Can any one of you name any other actors performance which was bbetter than amitabhs in deewar. as for the hit and flop list, I agree with nitin. Box officeindia.com has to get its facts right. let me give an example. Namakhalaal is slotted in the semi hit category. I would like to tell everyone that I personally saw the movie in a theatre in hyderabad where it celebrated a golden jubilee. the manager told us that at least 20 other cinemas in Indai had had golden jubilees for this movie. It was a certified super hit. ask any film distributer who was around in the eighties. another thing, Feroz khan gave an interview on tv where he was talking about Qurbani. he said that that the film did a business of many crores and in those days only amitabh’s films did that kind of business.Such was the image of amitabh. everybody knows that shahrukh only works with safe banners. He is constantly buttering the film magazines. pls don’t even think of cxomparing them . Its a joke

  162. Whu the bullshit has done this comparision i don’t know…Ganga jamuna saraswati was a smash hit..still it is listed in flop…is ki maa ki…Amitabh is Amitabh…SRK is no where near him…it’s simply proved from the flop SRK version of KBC..so dear leave comparing the legend with others….

  163. Dear Nitin,

    Everybody knows your a fan of amitabh bachan , you have different ideas i have different idea even we cannot imagine our ideas , you like someone i like someone this is different matter . i like those actors who act good and entertain cinema hall enough .!! better to consontrate on your work or studies , either amitabh or shahrukh khan they will not give any thing to us
    we don’t want to play our emotions . ok amitabh is good actor whatever you want he is than ,

  164. well there is somebody with no acting skills (According to few),no great looks,no physique,no voce and still he ruling bollywwod since last 17 years.

    We dont know if he a greater superstar than amithabh or not but this man surely rocks.

    Hats off to this man.SRK…

  165. shahrukh khan acting sucks me but his films are good because of big banner.

  166. Amitabh Bachchan has given 19 Blockbusters in jus 10 years..The list above is completelly incorrect and biased to SRK. ere is actual list

  168. TO ALL SRK HATERS AND AMITABH LOVERS

    i keep reading that all r saying that srk has been successful because of big banners and big directors but the fact is that he made the banners and directors big.

    well in ddlj aditya chopra was making his directorial debut.at that time who would have said he would become a great director.if the film wouldnt have worked then aditya chopra wouldnt have called a good director.
    from this it is clear that srk made aditya chopra famous

    the same is the case with karan johar.before the realease of kuch kuch hota hain who would have said that he is a great director.srk did this film before karan johar became famous as a director.

    and also in the case of farah khan.no knew how farah is good as a director but he did her and became a huge hit

    SO THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS THAT BIG BANNERS AND BIG DIRECTORS HAS NOT MADE SRK FAMOUS BUT SRK MADE THE BANNERS AND DIRECTORS FAMOUS

    so all u srk haters if u r a human being(i doubt so) and if u have some sense, then just accept the fact that srk is a true superstar and a fantastic actor.u also know that he is no 1 and no one can ever come even close to him(not even in dreams)and just stop finding an excuse.

    and if now also U cant understand the fact then i cant help u all guys.ONLY MENTAL DOCTORS CAN HELP U.

    SAN-

    WELL U HAVE WRITTEN THE LIST OF BLOCKBUSTERS OF AMITABH BACHAN.WHY CANT U WRITE THE FLOPS AND DISASTERS OF AMITABH BACHAN.I KNOW THE LIST IS LONG BUT U SHOULD HAVE TRIED IT ATLEAST 100 FILM NAMES.MAY BE I CAN HELP U-RGV KI AAG,NISHABD,BOOM,JAADUGAR ETC.MY GOD THE LIST IS ENDLESS.WELL I THINK U LIVE IN PAST.MY SWEET BOY LOOK AT THE PRESENT AND SEE WHO IS ON TOP AND WHO IS THE BAADSHAH OF BOLLYWOOD.ITS NONE ANOTHER THAN KING KHAN.DONT OPEN UR MOUTH WHEN U DONT KNOW THE REAL FACTS.

  169. And Aamir Include this Point Amithab Did Movies With Gud Banners Under Gud Directors – But They are many whch Dint Worked – After he was termed SuperStar – Not Many Of his mOvies With Big Directors Worked In Big Way

  170. Plz ban this Sattu Bhaskar. yeh kutta yahan bhi pohanch gaya hai.

  171. Sattu ??

    Mate – Jst Keep this Discussion Going In gud way -

  172. aksfilmi
    that makes AB even greater
    Aditya chopra and karan johar….even when they were debutant they belonged to huge banners.
    songs directors…..and easay entry…they all favored srk…
    I won’t blame him for being with good directors…..good or bad one has to be successfull and SRK is successfull..I am not blind like shaan…i can differentiate between good and bad
    but when u talk about SRK’s acting skills I am sorry he is not in that league…..even in chak-de he overacted few times…but still chak-de is good movie.
    For SRk lovers he doen’t have a pan-india reach…..even salman is famous….if a movie like partner can be blockbuster than either indian audience is tasteless or salman is huge…..then why make SRK mahan due to chak-de at least its a movie with some sense..
    we cry that we don’t make goodmovies….its our hopeless taste that is responsible…most of the sensible movies bombed at box-office…they are classics but they could not provide financial encouragement to others to make sensible movies.
    For aksfilmi i seriously recommend u to read yesteryears film magazines….so that u get an idea of what BIG means….and forget ur boxoffice website……even if i go by box office data……from 1975 to 1991 amitabh was in the top three highest saleable actors….in 1975 he was second
    from 1976 to 1991 he was the most saleable actor……..straight 16 years…without any doubt…..undisputed champion…and then he retired and SRK came in 1973…LUCKY
    SRK has never enjoyed this status….he has been in and out of top three….andeven there has been a tussle for the first position
    I wonder our dear Shaan khan never brought this fact to enlighten others……otherwise he is so fond of boxoffice india…..that is what i mean by fooling people…..stop fooling them…show them th reality…..talking crap about SRK won’t make him mahaan….

  173. correction*** srk came in 1993…if am not wrong

  174. yeah comparision’s is waste of time, everybody know that shah rukh’s is best, better n succecsful..

  175. Dheerendra ?

    Dharma Productn was not Big Banner – Karan Johar was not a Super Director Before KKHH -

    I dont Thnk Big B was leading till 1991 Jst Check Out The movies he did After Coolie -1984- I thnk that was his End – After that he had one or Two released

    And Talking Abt Srk’s Acting Skill – Its Foolish/Idotic To rate him Down as Actor – If Srk Dont Act – Whoz that Mahan Actor (Not Big B- We All Knw What U ll Say then) Who acts Brillantly

    DheerendRa Thanks For Suggesting For the Yesterdays magzine – i Few Seen Quite Many Movies – Few Movies were brillant Like Main Azad hoon whch Dint worked at box office – But they were many stupid senseless movies Whr Big B Overacted – If u thnk dat Big B never OverActed – Thats The End Of discussion – I THNK EVERYSTAR OVERACTS TO ENTERTAIN HIS FANS OR AUDIENCE specailly in Bollywood

  176. well its good that dheerendre and some other idiots r present in this site.because it will be boring to have all sensible people.some mad peoples must be present along with sensible peoples.we laughs at the comments of dheerendre and other srk haters because there r completely meaningless.so continue dheerendre and make us laugh more.these r the peoples who doesnt want to accept the real facts.

  177. amitabh bachan should polish the shoes of srk to come even close to srk

  178. srk’s dog must be compared with amitabh bachan.they will have good competiton.

  179. arey chodho yaar tum loog kitna bhi samjou srk haters ko woh ek hi baat kuch na kuch galat nikalenge hi… sabsey easy galati woh nikalatey hain big banners ki aur media ney srk ko super star banaya… yeh sab sun key baas muje toh hasna ataa hai…

    if u give them one good reason why u like srk they vl bring u 100 reasons why they hate srk… and itz common fact that a person won’t be loved and cheered good by everyone… especially a sucessful and outstanding personality like srk… and same in the case of big b.. too this all is use less comparision becoz both are superstar in thier own way and best in thier own way….. so just chill…

  180. “Mate – Jst Keep this Discussion Going In gud way”

    Oh sorry Aks, i think the discussion was not going in a gud way. Huh, What r u talking abt Aks. Just examine this post including 200 comments and decide urself either ur discussion is going in a gud way or not. Man, i’ve never seen such a rubbhish talk over and issue before.

    By the way, remind u that Sattu is Satyam of NG. who is here with changing ID ‘Nitin’.

  181. Mate – no personal Attacks thats it -

  182. Ok Sir (Aksfilmi).

  183. It brings down the quality of dicussion – i knw after reading 182 comments – anyone ll lose their head – They have been more attacks dan dicussion

  184. Amair baig

    wah teri kya baat hai…..i loved reading ur comments n i found them funny as well…keep it up we need supoorters like 2 back SRK n tell the world what does SRK means…

  185. U R WELCOME MARYAM

    well maryam this is just a beginning.we have to teach a lesson to these srk haters.saying something to srk is like saying to me.if anyone says wrong or bad about this great human being,i’ll be first to stand against these idiot fellows.and iam glad that i have the support of u people.

  188. Now compare who has given how many hits and conclude..

  189. After even 1990 AB has given 11 movies which count in Top-50 of decade in earnings

  190. MUMBAI, Dec 30 (AFP) – While a plunging box office has left Hollywood in a sweat, India’s Bollywood is breathing easier after four blockbusters by legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan helped reverse its declining fortunes in 2005.

    Bollywood, India’s prolific Hindi-language film industry, invested 10 billion rupees in nearly 150 movies in 2005 and ended the year with a loss of around 1.35 billion rupees (29.8 million dollars) against losses of 1.75 billion in 2004, according to film analyst Komal Nahta.

    With four of the 20 hits recorded at the box office this year to his credit, Bachchan, 63, emerged as the undisputed movie mogul of Bollywood despite a serious ailment in the past few months which has delayed shooting of his new projects.

    “Bachchan was responsible for lower losses to a large extent after giving four super hits in 2005,” said Nahta.

    The four films — “Black”, “Waqt” (Time), “Sarkar” (Godfather) and “Bunty Aur Babli” — together grossed a whopping one billion rupees, he added.

    “No other actor achieved what Bachchan did this year, which goes to prove his clout,” Nahta told AFP.

    “Considering his age, scripts are still written for him which is something that has never happened before in Bollywood.”

    In Hollywood, ticket sale revenues dropped five percent in the first 11 months of 2005 while the number of Americans going to the cinema fell by 6.2 percent compared with the same period in 2004, according to box office trackers Exhibitor Relations Co Inc.

    But in India, filmmakers adopted new storylines to keep afloat an industry often accused of aping Hollywood and got fans back to theatres, said Nahta.

    Of the 150 Hindi films released this year, around 20 were hits at the box office, eight more than last year, said another analyst, Indu Mirani.

    “This year was much better even though the success to failure ratio remained the same at around 15 percent,” she said.

    “But in absolute terms, the movies that were successful were bigger hits with higher earnings which shows that more tickets were sold in 2005.”

    India’s first fully-fledged animation film, “Hanuman” — the mythological story of the Hindu monkey god — also gave a boost, earning 80 million rupees against its cost of 30 million rupees in its first nine weeks.

    “While comedy and new themes made it in Bollywood this year, sex based films bombed,” said analyst Nahta.

    “The audience has become very unpredictable and there is no brand loyalty to any actor or director anymore,” said Mirani, with the exception of Bachchan.

    “This was one important trend observed in 2005.”
    Pirated movies, meanwhile, continued to erode Bollywood’s earnings.

    “Bollywood lost at least five billion rupees worth of earnings to piracy. It’s the biggest menace for movie industries world over and Bollywood is no exception,” said Mirani.

    Notes: 1) Amitabh Bachchan is indeed a towering icon of Indian cinema, and his daily schedule is impressive: film shoots, advertisements, voiceovers, an ongoing television show, etc. That he does so much is not only a testament to his stamina but his talent. Consider this brief excerpt from a recent Filmfare interview:

    How do you manage your time so well? Your punctuality is well known, but what else—do you multi-task, set yourself deadlines for each task, get by on very little sleep, what?

    Well, I don’t have any sensible explanation but I can tell you what happened to me on the sets of “Black”. I don’t know if you remember my character’s introduction scene, in which he’s playing with the light bulb and there’s a very long shot in which he talks about his students, his frustrations and how he has to pack up and leave. There were emotions, tears, a breakdown, everything. It’s all one shot.

    I did it in one take. I finished, nobody said anything, and I walked back to my van. A little later, [director] Sanjay Leela Bhansali came in and said, ‘Sir, that was brilliant.’ I said, ‘Thank you.’ Then he said, ‘I can’t possibly shoot any more today, I’m just so overwhelmed by the shot. And I said, ‘Thank you very much, I think I’ll go and do an ad now.’ So I walked across the floor and did an ad for Dabur.

    2) The article mentions last year’s BW foray into sexier fare. The New York Times did an excellent article last summer on the shifting role of good girls going bad in Bollywood.
    Indeed there’s a lot of cultural upheaval in India happening at the moment: a modified Playboy being introduced and a Maxim launch as well are only two small instances of some changing social dynamics that seem to be emerging.

    This blog will not only cover Bollywood, but from time to time I’ll look at some of the cultural and economic shifts at play in India at the moment. Its my sense that India’s economic (and perhaps cultural) presence will be increasingly felt globally.

    3) back to BW: Two of the top four films mentioned – “Black” and “Sarkar” – were songless, and ran a shorter length than the usual 3 hour BW fare. A few years ago these films would have been far too serious and “arty” to do well at the box office, but both audiences and filmakers seem to be pushing the envelope.

  191. What a crap piece written by MUMBAI, Dec 30 (AFP). Totally baseless and ficticious.

  192. San

    You are counting SRK’s success as Amitabh Doodhwalah’s success. No sane person (in the trade) ever gives the credit of a SRK movie to anyone except SRK.

  193. Mate

    Would you like to deconstruct “the crap, Mumbai, Dec30″ or would you like me to do that ?

  194. cut that crap san article

  200. SRK Is the King of Bollywood

  201. well mr.San Black was never a hit.Waqt was semi hit and that too beacsue of AK more than AB.Sarkar was avg and yeah Bunti aur Bubli was a hit.Which AB you are talking about.The guy who has given most number of disaters in last five years than anybodyelse.May be his son has given some close fight to him in terms delivering disaters.

    Secondly how many solo hits AB has given in last 10 years.He has been a burden for movies than an asset offlate.If we calculate the number of flops he has given in last 6-7 years that would put bollywood to shame for sure.

  202. rajeev

    man u r absolutely right.keep it up…

  203. many actor play in 65 age as like amrish puri,ompuriand many actor play chracter role if amitabh debew in1990 deced and give 14 flop film then any one can not know who is amitabh bachan
    srk debue very comptitive decade and reach the top he have more than scop pf acting than amitabh

    amitabh can not reach in overseas market in 40 yeaes
    top 5 cverseas collection bollywood film of srkand in top 10 8 of srk

  204. San

    Let us start at the very beginning. The argument has faulty construction. The author talks about “plunging Hollywood revenue”, how does the author define a plunge, by a 5% swing? Where is the statistics to support this view? Or the view that comparatively Bollywood did better? The author it appears is making unsubstantiated wild statements that are devoid of reality just so as to suit his cock and bull story. Given that the creditability of the author and the integrity of the post are lost at the set-up stage (i.e. the set up of the argument/position) itself, it is hard to take anything being said in the post on its face value. This post is dead on arrival.

    It has been said that even the Devil can quote the Bible to suit his purposes. I think the author is being the devil in the post we are trying to evaluate. Nahta’s statements are being cherry picked, some misrepresented and still others are factually incorrect. Hence for the purpose of verification, we urge the author to provide links to Nahtas statements. Without verification we cannot accept them as Nahta’s statements. Furthermore we need all of Nahta’s statements relating to the year in question or at least a statistically valid representation, we cannot narrowly focus on a few cherry picked & unverified statements and conclude what Nahta’s complete or comprehensive view for the year 2005 is. Hence short of the additional info being sought, references from Nahta on this issue are null and void, i.e. inadmissible. For all we know these may not be Nahta’s position or equally likely it is possible that when all of Nahta’s statements are evaluated his position may just be the opposite.

    Frankly at this stage it seems not worth while to go any further, but this article is such a piece of dog carp that it would be irresponsible not to point out that without any hard numbers for suport, it is being claimed in this post that no actor has done what Bachchan achieved in the year 2005. The author should be reminded that without real numbers it is impossible to compare in subjective terms. This statement can therefore just be called a hyperbole. In other words, pure baloney.

    Furthermore in a Bachchanista like zeal, the author lies (a standard trait of Bachchanistas) that never has a script been written for a man of Big B’s age. Thankfully Vidhata, Saudagar and Baghban (a film written for Dilip Kumar but passed down to Big B because of DK’s health problems) etc expose these lies. Why just DK, even Ashok Kumar had scripts written for him during his third innings (e.g. Ashirwad). One wonders how pathetic Big B’s record has to be in order for the Bachchanistas to lie to make him look decent.

    Finally as is always the case, semi-hit movies have been shamlesly re-classified as hit to fit the narrative, or a Askshay Kumar hit is re-classified as a Big B hit.Come on, on the issue of salability does anyone have to give any satistics anymore to show Big B’s poor showing ? Has anyone forgotten Dil Jo Kahay, Virudh and Ek Ajnabee ? Might I add all from the same year 2005. Let me remind you that with the sun, moon and the stars aligned in his favor. With the attention of the entire country and the media focused on him. With a tailor made role in a relatively well made movie, Big B failed to save Ek Ajnabee from flopping at the box office.

  205. If u wanna compare that way then Compare Amitabh’s 1970′s hit with srk’s 1990′s u will get answer..
    Amitabh has given 10 solo hits+ in 1970
    where as srk able to give only 6

  206. San:

    Let me make it easy for you. This is SRK’s first innings. Upto 1985 was Big B’s first innings. Please show me a string of success from Big B’s first innings which will measure up in quality and range to CDI, Don, KANK, Swades, Devdas, & DDLJ . Now please don’t include Roti Kapda & Makkan (he was a junior artist, an extra, in that movie) or Sholay (he was Dharmendra’s sidekick). The success of Sholay is the success of Salim-Javed, Ramesh Sippy, Amjad Khan and Dharmendra. Guys like Asrani, Keshto, A.K. Hangal, Amitabh Bachchalan, & Sachin do not really count that much. If you do not agree then look at RGV Ki Aaag, while Amjad and Dharmendra’s role were played by known artist, Jai was played by an unknown.

  207. An excellent piece of writing Shaan Khan, very comprehensive and to the point. Keep it up.

  208. Mate

    Thank you

  209. What do u mean by quality or range?..If u say Sholey is not his film then u r completely wrong…Well leave abt it There r many more abt which we can talk.
    Namak Haram(The movie which shifted Superstar focus from Rajesh Kanna to AB)
    Mukaddar ka sikandar(Blockbuster)in srk list u only DDLJ earned better than this. And i can say the story of that movei too is Kajol centric.But u might not be knowing most of his movies hv earned good money to both producer as well as distributer(thats what exactly matters)Next noe look at catagorywise.
    Action::Deewar, Trishul, Lawaris, Zanjeer,Don, Suhag, Kalia, Cooli, Mard etc..
    Negative role::Parwana( Dint had that trend much.)
    Romance:: Abhiman, Silsila, Kabhi-kabhi
    Comic::Namak Halal, Chupke chupke
    Performance::Mili,Kala pathar, Sharabi, Hera pheri etc..

    Now abt srk
    Action:: Karan Arjun, Don(Remake copy of BigB)
    Negative::Baazigar, Darr(Hit bcz of Sunny too), Deewana
    Romance::DDLJ,KKHH,DTPH, Veer-Zara, Pardes.
    Comic::None
    Performance:;CDI, Mahobbate,Kal honaho.

    In 17 years of carrier only 16 hits by srk..
    Where has BigB has given 19 hits in jus 10 years in 1970′s.

    Amitabh is the only actor who has given atleast one hitevery year for 15 cosecutive years
    Amitabh is the only person who has given 6 silver jublee(2 r golden)in one year 1978.(srk cant even dream of releasing 6 movies in year)
    And still many things i can compare.

  210. Top Actors From (1940 – 2006)

  211. Sandy

    If u say Sholey is not his film then u r completely wrong…

    Yes I am saying that. Big B in Sholay (as well as Chupke Chupke) was just Dharmendra’s sidekick. He was what Ritesh Deshmukh is these days or Rehman was in an earlier age. Interestingly enough when Big B was given a role somewhat equal to Dharam Paaji (i.e. Ram Balram, Hum Koun Hai) the movies flopped (the audience never accepted Big B as Dharam’s equal, they saw him as a sidekick).

    The movie which shifted Superstar focus from Rajesh Kanna to AB

    Congress Party and the Gandhi family shifted the focus to Big. This was not some hard earned victory but a political nomination.

    Mukaddar ka sikandar

    Prakash Mehra wanted a full blown Devdas but keeping Big B’s limited range and ability in mind he settled for Devdas lite. Mukaddar’s Sikandar is Big B’s badge of shame, it represents his failure.

    Suhag, Kalia, Cooli, Mard

    On listing these movies as accomplishment you have defined your low standards.

    1. Dilip Kumar (1948 – 1963) & Amitabh Bachchan (1976 – 1991) – 16 Years

    BOI is not the bearer of records. It is too ill equipped for that role. Big B’s first innings was from around 1976 to 1985. He was not the numero uno for all those years. Dhamarm Paaji, Jeetendra, etc were also there.

  212. Totally flawed list you got there
    Do aur do paanch flop??? satte pe satta flop??????
    ibosnetwork says Shahrukh has 15 major grossers and Amitabh had 58.

    At the same time Shahrukh’s movie have to deal with piracy and stuff, for Amitabh it was competition at its peak. Dharmendra, Rajesh Khanna (remember Anand??? Amitabh played second fiddle and got national award + huge accolades) Rishi Kapoor, Jeetendra, Vinod Khanna.

    But Amitabh killed the whole competition. Same goes for Shahrukh, when everyone can watch a movie in comfort of their homes, its Shahrukh movies which drag them to halls. When there is hardly a movie where you can go with your parents and children, still won’t feel embarrassed, Shahrukh promises of one such evening.

    I don’t know how you can prove which ones greater just by bashing one….. but for me both are legends, both are incomparable. They both have given me enough reasons to smile, that I frown how many hits and flops they gave.

  213. Satyam/Kunal/Akshay

    ibosnetwork says Shahrukh has 15 major grossers and Amitabh had 58.

    As a fan you find unique ways to praise SRK :) Is it also not interesting you find a way to trumpet IBOS.

  214. You know how to read???? or you have a problem understanding what you read????

    in both ways you gotta get a chekup dude or may be next time read the whole thing before posting anything.

  215. Sandy you are wrong. In Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan has 15 Years from 1992 till 2007. In these 15 Years Shah Rukh Khan has 19 Hit Movies and I am using the strickest Classification (Not like Komal Nahta).

    1. Deewana (Hit)
    2. Darr (Hit)
    3. Baazigar (Hit)
    4. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (All Time Blockbuster)
    5. Karan Arjun (Blockbuster)
    6. Dil To Pagal Hai (Super Hit)
    7. Pardes (Hit)
    8. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (All Time Blockbuster)
    9. Mohabbatien (Hit)
    10. Josh (Semi-Hit)
    11. Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (Super Hit)

  216. O Kunal urf Akshay urf Satyam from NG jhoot bolo forum, jaan choro humari. Kisi 3rd class mag ke 3rd class editor, plz go somewhere else. Yahaan paglon ka enterance allow nahin hai.

  217. lo ek aur aaya.

    “jis tum tumhara chharukh ek saal main six jubilees dene ki aukaat rakhne lage …”

    Which language u’re speaking dheerendra (Pa Ji)

    he he he …

  218. and if gandhi’s were so obsessed with making AB superstar than they would have done that in the first few movies of AB.
    Accept reality…..no gandhi paid anyone to see anyone of AB’s movie……only this forum compares AB with Charukkh just bcoz of some stupid ppl like shaan, mate and amir.
    keep it up charukh fans
    and dharmendra ever enjoyed the kind of success AB enjoyed.
    about jay in RGV ki aag…..his selection was criticized the most before the release of the movie….but thanks to ghungroo and rajpal yadav……
    jab nada dheela hota hai tabhi insan pajama pajama ki rat lagat hai……pajama chap charukh ko chodo and come out of ur dreams..
    whenevr a mag or any article say sth in favor it becomes true for u stupids but when it says sth about AB it becomes crap for u idiots.
    stop fooling others and discuss sth else….may be Hanuman….that animated character is better than ur charukh bcoz atleast it was original.

  219. which language do u know mate….tell me…i’ll reply in the same language….
    laato ke bhoot baton se nahin mante….tum kaise manoge?

  220. Acha to aap bhoot hain Pa Ji!!!

  221. Frustration, too much frustration is obvious from ur silly remarks Pa Ji. U know very well why i quote abt ur faulty use of language, now dont try to hide ur mistake Pa ji.

  222. This is all stupid..SRK can’t leave ungrage behing, he can’t talk inglish, walk inglish, laugh inglish, because inglish is a wery fundy language. SRK k-ka-ka-kak run….was a classic but he never out grew that, his first handful of films were great, but he never grew as an actor. Daar, Bazigar, Anjaam, and other in the mid 90′s were good films. After DDLJ, he never showed anything new. Really besides a few good love story movies.. He was his best as a villan, which puts him in amerish puri’s (a great actor) class. That’s all SRK is an average to above average actor, with no competition, good roles leading to box office success. The movies make SRK, SRK does not make the movies, besides this early few movies. With out AB, a lot of his hit movies would have been flops. And even in his flops his acting has been superior. Look at the wikipedia pages for both the actors. AB’s page is 10 times larger than SRK. End of story. AB is far superior. Most of the SRK fans are too young to know anything about AB.

  223. “With out AB, a lot of his hit movies would have been flops.”

    Wah Wah Wah … Bapu koi nayi item hi lagti hai is planet par.

    What can i say abt ur comment Bapu, i think u’re a new born baby in this planet. Pehle bade ho jao phir yahan par aana.

    A man who gave super duper Flops for 15 years continuously without any interval (from 85 to 99), Srk gave a new life to him with Mohabbatein. But still he never learnt any lesson from his failures. He, by taking advantage of Mohabbatein which was all in all a Srk movie, he got work in films (Thanks to Srk). But this time again, he never disappointed his fans (if there’s any) and again started giving much bigger Super duper flops and finally when he was totally rejected by the people, he has to sell doodh (milk) in the streets of Mumbai and now he is a renowned “DOODHWALA BHAIYA”.

  224. Why you compare Amitabh in his downward slope???

    Try see when he was Shahrukh’s age, when he was generating Shahrukh like hysteria all around.

    The fact is Amitabh had to come back, because his ABCL got bankrupted and his son turned out to be dud. He is doing all he can to get money and along with it some good roles. After all he did Black, and even Shahrukh bowed to him, remember you so called Shahrukh fan????? if not then go to youtube and listen again what Shahrukh said about him.

    Shahrukh and Amitabh are no different in their peak periods, both had mass appeal, a genuine superstar phenomenon, sense of humor, and massive public support. I am not too old, just 24 and even I after seeing some his movies can guess why he is regarded one of the top actors of all time.

    Go and see Anand, to see how to portray a sidekick and still walk away with all accolades, see how to act flawlessly in Agnipath, learn how to smile and make others cry at the same time in Main Azad hoon. Why you get scared of Amitabh so much guys???? Shahrukh is a great actor, as much as Amitabh was in his hay days. When they are together they represent India in the best possible manner, Intelligent, Calm, Poised, Exuberant, Confident, Witty, Commanding Language, And most of all Talented.

  225. Kunal great that u have a rational view on Big B vs Srk

  226. Thanks Aks, but I don’t know if rational works here ;)
    anyhow thanks again

  227. It does Kunal but u have to fight lolz

    By the way saw TZP promo ??

  228. Oh I did man, and looks just like the movie which is expected from an actor of Amir’s stature.

    Looks very promising. It might do a whole new Lagaan for him.

  229. And what you think about it???
    I guess TZP would be better than Jodha Akbar

  230. Kunal Thers no comparison between laagan and TZP or JA and TZP

    I Thnk Tzp ll be beautiful movie but may not have bigger appeal like laagan rang de or Chak de – But With aamir khan u alway excpect somethng more commerical

    Kunal Ll discuss this on TZP Post ? is that ok

  231. SRK is better than AB, biggest example is KBC….KBC 3 hosted by shahrukh was so cool and lively show where as AB’s KBC 1&2 were good but when u see it with shahrukh u r actually on da hot seat where ever u are..What say….Shahrukh was so cool n polite as compared to AB, and his(SRK’s) jokes n comments made the show rockin, he is so down to earth, remember Rachana Sharma who was a teacher, her episode on KBC 3 if u have not seen it then see it on YOUTUBE, search for ‘KBC SRK Episode 8′and see da full episode, this lady is so rude to Shahrukh n yet he is cool n da best part is in the end…and talkin about AB he was extremely good in his days bt now he is doin it for only one reason money n not dil se…he knows there are only few years left for him to earn so he his gettin it by hook or by crook, so only he married his son to Aishwarya Rai cos he knows that Abhishek is not goin to earn much in future, in short he is securing family’s future….
    Bottom Line is that rite now there is no comparison between SRK & AB
    SRK Rules in India as well as Overseas…

  232. koi mate ko samjhao
    bachhe typing errors main mistakes nain nikalte
    and dhoodhwala is thousandmes better than chakka….CKD

  233. talking about mohabbatein
    CKD got all the romantic dalogues and songs still AB’s silence was more powerful…hahaaaa..
    AB doesn’t need a chance from anyone. AT 65 he has more movies than anyone else
    grow up….

  234. Amitabh bachchan was the weakest link in mohabbatein…..

    ….Anushashan , Pratistha, Pratikarma…blah blah blah…. what bullshit….. God Damn it….. His Surya Pranam in the morning was so boring.

    SRK won over AB in Mohabbatein in all quarters possible,in the same way Dilip won over him in Shakti!

    SRK won over him in K3G also…..

    Govinda stole his show from him in bade miyan chote miyan…

    AB tried to sabotage Veer zaara….but again got saved by srk….

  235. good attempt kaushik but grow up….the very same surya prananm is followed by many MBA institutes in india.
    And even if it was boring….u shud blame director not actor
    I wonder u didn’t mention ziah khan who won over AB and Jaya Bhaduri won over AB in zanzeer…..
    doesn’t matter how louder u shout…ur CKD is at best AN AVERAGE actor.
    seehow many dialogues weregiven to CKD in mohabbatein to counter AB’s silence…..hahaaaa…..
    kaushik u don’t understand acting…please don’t shout like a kid

  236. Friends: Today is Doodhwala’s birthday. So plz wish him happy birthday and pray for him to get more and more work in hindi movies and he may continue doing the same things again and again which he has been doing for 40 years.

  237. “ur CKD is at best AN AVERAGE actor.”

    i wish him on his birthday that May Doodhwala get a chance ever in his life to give a small portion of such “AN AVERAGE” performance so that he may retire with some dignity. Otherwise he would be ashamed throughout his life and feel sorry for his 40 years’ crap work.

  241. jitni amitabh ne hit films ki hain utni shahrukh ne films bhi nahi ki hain.amitabh is real don but shahrukh is duplicate so don’t praise fake product.

  242. Amitabh is undoubtedly today’s best supporting actor. If we compare both actors then we have to compare different roles of acting like Villaneous role, Comedy role, Romantic role, Gangster Type role, Sad role. SRK has proved his strength in Villaneous role by doing Darr and Anjam and he got Filmfare Best Villan Award for Darr. When it comes to romantic role SRK is on top and no question about it and this is what SRK-image is. SRK also gave Gangster kind of movies like josh, Don which was a Box Office hit and managed to be on number 9 in the list of highest grossing hindi films ever. When it comes to box office it means people’s liking and their watching the movie again because without people’s coming again and again on theatre movie cannot earn revenues of Rs 50,04,00,000. So he proved himself in gansgter type role and also he did comedian role as well. Amitabh has done variouss role but he is far behind in romantic roles and villaneous roles if we compare it with SRK. Although he has done good Ganster type roles or fighting roles but again he has not done agood villaneous role at all. His acting in RGV kay Sholay was too bad. Another thing is that comparison is done for same categories of role. Amitabh is good but good as Supporting Actor. SRK is good as Actor. We cannot compare Lead Actor with a Supporting Actor. Supporting Actor is always like chota for Actor (O! Chotay zara Chayaiy lana, u know!). And to be very honest the acting height which SRK has got in just 17 years time, Amitabh has gotten in over 40 years of acting so much so that we are comparing them. Think with honesty and answer that you always feel crazy to watch two or three movies of SRK per year OR Do you feel crazy and wait for 20 to thirty movies of Amitabh per year. Give me a break! Amitabh is in every other movie. Chill and compare Amitabh with other Supporting Actors and he is the best but donot compare him with Lead Actors and say Chak De India.

  246. sshhhhhhhhhhh…..guys listen,i am not an indian,but of indian origin,our great grand parents came to the americas.we r settled in brazil.once for the shooting of dhoom 2,mr yash chopra came to rio-de-janero.he was asked,if shahrukh khan was to make his entry in movies in the same era as amitabh made.i.e in mid 70′s and amitabh to make his entry in movies when shahrukh khan made.i.e in the mid 90′s…who would have got more success in bollywood?
    mr yash chopra replied, amitabh bachchan. any given period will be successful.remember during amitabh’s time there was not much media,like it is @present.so amitabh is much much bigger than shahruhkhan…and i am not a amitabh fan or a shah rukh fan.my parents r amitabh bachcan fans,like many more brazilian indians.

  247. well i have been following this site,as one of my indian friend gave me this site address.after 100 years,if both amitabh and shahrukh r compared.it will b astonishing to find out how many more years amitabh bachchan continued,even after his prime.and he was so famous,outside india,i am talkin about before the 1990′s,where there was not mass migration to foreign countries like it is now.now a movie can b a block buster hit in the uk,u.s as well as in australia…simply because there r more indians in these countries,As it was in the early 1990′s.imagine if this was in that peak period of amitabh.he would have got more hits overseas.and mind u where will b mr shahrukh khan @ his 60′s,will b retired and baby sitting his grand kids….naked truth & truth hurts.
    any comments on this,can b sent jben36@yahoo.com or b contacted by phone in las vegas7028970635.

  248. Hi All,
    No one should compare Shahrukh with so called shehanshah Amitabh!. Everyone knows the truth that SHAHRUKH KHAN is the Best!!!.
    Movies like ‘Dilwale dulhaniya lejayenge’ and ‘kuch kuch hota hai’ proved that he is incomparible. Ofcourse Amitabh is good actor but no more!!. Movies like ‘Jhoom barabar jhoom’,’Aag’,’Cheeni kum’,’nishabd’ proves that People now have become intelligent.(its not just the Image but the content in his acting matters them!)
    On the other hand… compare the awards won by shahrukh and amitabh you will know the TRUTH!. Sharukh was/is/will be the Best!.
    People love sharukh movies more because he touches everyone’s heart,soul with his unique style and acting. He makes you laugh, cry with his extraordinary dialogue delivery!!…we enjoyed it!.
    The only drawback in him is that he has a weak body… only to take the profit of this..childish actors Hrithik thinks they are ruling the bollywood after just with DHOOM2. But now sharukh has 6 pack in 3 months!.. this shows his strong determination,attitude and the desire to win National awards consistently!!.
    I will compare Sharukh khan with Australian cricket team!.They will not allow any team in the world to win over them!. By chance if any team wins with them… they will come back very strongly and they will squeeze the teams mentally!!.. So as Sharukh khan!.

    Now movies like Chak de-India proves his extraordinary ability to do any type of movies!!. Amitabh or hrithik would have never dare to do movie on Hockey!!!. Sharukh khan alwayz rocks!

    ‘ShehanSHAH’ RUKH KHAN- Shehanshah By Birth!!!!

    Thanks ‘AksFilmi’ for enlightening the Shahrukh detractors!! :) This much needed statistics will help us shut some of the mouths (hopefully) who think stats is what counts more than commonsense… Unfortunately, their little brains have no space for comprehension! Guess some of us are tired of dealing with dead brains – at least i am.

    Hence i repeat what i said earlier – Show me a solo Amitabh blockbuster (taking his lifetime’s releases into account) which has managed to gross revenue of Rs.75+ crores within first few months of release (that’s the revenue Chak De India has recorded and is still going strong. Once the DVD/VCD sales are taken into account, it’ll be even bigger.)!!
    Shahrukh’s latest solo outing ‘Om Shanti Om’ whose distribution rights have been bought by EROS for Rs.74 crores. FYI, that’s the highest any film in indian history has received for distribution rights.
    And folks, Shahrukh is still just 41 where as Amitabh is already 65.

    Bottomline: Amitabh no doubt a great actor but Shahrukh is even greater

  253. Mate – From My Side – I end dis discussion 253 is gud no i guess lolz

    Avon appericate what u sed – But therz nother side to the same story – May be u shud listen from Bachchan’s
    fan

  254. Nitin,

    Aren’t you tired of fighting a losing battle for sooooo long?? We see that you are the only guy persistently fighting for ‘Big’ B. Poor you… Our sympathies are with you… How much does Big B pay you for this pathetic chamchagiri?

  255. Avon -I dont thnk Nitin ll reply – he already lost it – So What abt OSO ?

  256. I agree ‘AksFilmi’, let’s listen to the Bachchan fans…

    Now one good way is to compare the box office power of SRK and Big B in the films they acted together.. One can then decide who rules the marquee…
    From such a comparison, it becomes very clear that it was SRK who steered those films towards big hits/ blockbusters when compared to Amitabh especially when Big B has about 38-40 years of experience compared to SRK’s 15-16 years. And from that logic, shouldn’t Big B’s impact have been at least double that of King Khan given that Big B has more than twice the experience of SRK?? Unfortunately Big B’s impact has been less than half of SRK’s…

  257. I quite agree with many of the guys here on Shahrukh Khan being better than Amitabh Bachchan. For someone who’s based out of India, i can only share my views for the impact of the two in UK and USA where i’ve lived. I don’t have much knowledge on their impact in India. I’m sure it’s huge.
    I love Indian cinema. I follow it closely. In UK and USA, Shahrukh Khan rules. People love him more than any other Indian star. Amitabh Bachchan too is popular but as an aging star and not as a superstar. Shahrukh Khan is regarded as a superstar. Most of his movies do very good business here. Sometimes better than the local films.

  258. Ever thought of pitting the superstars of two different eras against one another and see who is more valuable among them? It seems like child’s play these days if one knows how to use Google for the purpose. But how many could have imagined that a person would come up with a creative way of finding out the real worth(yes, in dollars!!) of various celebrities from Google’s point of view? Soam Acharya takes us on a fun ride in an article published on Desicritics evaluating the price tag attached by Google Adwords to different Indian celebrities if you want to use their names as the keywords for the ads you want to place with it. If you don’t understand what I am talking about, you surely need a crash course in Google Adwords! Head straight to Soam Acharya’s blog article for more details on that, but here is the interesting part:

    Amitabh Bachchan————-$1.36
    Om Puri——————————-$0.36
    Shahrukh Khan——————-$0.34
    Aamir Khan————————-$0.20

    In Number if Top 5 earners of the year who scores better?
    Amitabh Bachchan in 14 years(1973-1987) counts to 19 top earners
    Srk in 14 years (1992-2006) counts only 15 top earners

  259. Sandy,

    Why rely on some Google generated figures when you can compare actual box office collections?? Just check how much a ‘Big’ B (who has 38-40 years experience in acting) starrer grosses vis-a-vis how much a SRK (who has 15-16 years of experience) starrer grosses and you’ll know who actually rules the marquee among the two…

    Now, do you have a cut-off amount for the films you are referring as ‘top earners’??
    If you analyze well, you’ll see that none of Amitabh’s hits were a solo act when compared to SRK’s hits, many of which are solo acts.

    And if you compare their eras, ‘Big’ B acted in an era (era when he delivered hits) when movies were the main source of entertainment. In SRK’s era, there are many many options for entertainment other than movies – namely, television (indian serials, international serials, reality shows, live sports, documentaries etc.); shopping (people shop a lot today as a means of spending leisure time); internet (people surf a lot during their leisure time); partying (people socialize a lot through get-together/ parties); sports and games (especially among kids and teens – video games, online games..); music – huge choice from indian and international music; etc. etc.

    Plus the number of movies made during the Bachchan era were far far less than the number of them made today. Due to the drastic increase in number of movies, the audience/ wallet share gets dramatically divided and hence the per-movie-eyeball ratio comes down drastically. This results in division of audience for a movie.

    IF you take all these very basic factors into account and include in it, Bachchan and SRK’s current box office status, it is very clear that SRK wins hands down in a Bachchan-SRK knock out.

  260. Sandy,

    Forgot to mention that the authenticity of your Google stats itself is highly questionable given that ‘Om Puri’ figures in the list of the top stars!!! :) :) If you’d used little bit of common sense there, you’d have figured out that those stats are quite naive like the person who gave them to you! Tell me, how many hits would Om Puri get on google (those stats would be derived on number of hits on google). The one collected the stats would’ve extrapolated the number of hits to a specific target number (to bring the ranking on a common scale) due to which the stats would’ve got distorted.
    There is no Hritik, Salman, Akshay (the successful stars) etc. in the stats but there is an Om Puri!! :) :) :) Laughable stuff. You’d agree with me that Hritik, Salman, Akshay are much bigger stars than at least Om Puri!!

  261. SRK sucks he can never be compared to AB at 60 he is still acting hard SRK is still struggling around SRK is young now AB has limitation of age and roles , let SRK reach to 60 spending period same as 4 yrs in industry then compare the statistics. You will know who is what.

  262. Pawan,

    You must be kidding!! SRK is struggling or Amitabh?? Look at the recent movies both have done… Which have become big hits?? Just because you are a mindless human/animal, don’t be so critical of SRK. The whole nation loves him and that’s why his movies are such big hits. Amitabh is a flop old man now. His days are over. Don’t waste your time and mine.
    And what have you accomplished to be so critical of SRK? Look at yourself first… I don’t see your name in papers like SRK?

  263. srk is no where near BigB..
    srk can never achieve what BigB has done during his era..Let it be in number of hits or versatality.. every bollywood director know none can beat AB…
    There someone mentioned AB dint had any solo alltime blockbuster and blockbuster so how u define them.. If its based on earninghs then BigB has 7 alltime blockbusters which hv earned 500%+over 90% of country..
    actually srk is jus overated nothing else..he has only 1 alltime BB (DDLJ) with 95 Crore earning(Inflation adjusted)

  264. @Avon::
    Well.Jus compare 70′s and 80′s of AB to 90′s and 2k’s of srk.. Then ul understand who is better..
    Its inly ur illusion that BigB had no solo Alltime Blockbusters..Also all multistarer Alltime Blockbusters blockbuster r also bcz of BigB presence in it..Muqaddar ka sikandar(102 Crroes), Deewar (71 Crores),Mr.Natwarlal(62 Crores), Coolie(74 Crores)… On other hand srk has only one movie which has grossed 70Crores+ and thats DDLJ(95 Crores) still less that Muqaddar Ka Sikandar.
    Next if u hv some common sense then u would understand that with age every actors gross appears to decline.. in ur way of thinking Dilip Kumars Karma , Soudagar(1991).Qila(1999)all should hv been alltime blockbusters.
    Now about comparison of different era’s..BigB ruled and grossed more than 70 crores in his movies when
    1.Indian population was jus 50-60 crores.
    2.Economic status was India was very poor and India was underdeveloped country.
    3.Had huge competetion with superstars like Rajesh Kanna and Dhaemendra.
    4.he was absolutelly not good looking and had only acting as his asset.
    5. Dramas and stage shows were very popular those days which easily replace what entertainment people use to get with movies.
    6.All grosses mentioned r confined to India only. There was no oversea market during his time.
    7.No media coverage and publicity was there.
    8. Had to fight video piracy in 80′s which affected around 25% of earning.

    Today, when u ppl say srk rules.
    1.In 1990 already India was in category of Developing country and Economic status is 1000 times better.
    2.Bcz of PVNarasimharao globalisation took place in 1992 which helped bollywood in great way.
    3.Other entertainment what u talking about other than TV r irrelevent as other entertainment ware always there in different forms.Like, Drama, Stage shows,Mela etc…And as far as TV is concerned it has effected both ways.It helps to get lot of publicity for the movie and promo can make people attract.So this is not a -ve point.
    4.CD piracy what many people talk about affects only 30% of movie earning which is very less compared to other reasons i stated.
    5. When srk entered market there was no superstar hence no much competetion.No 1 position was empty after BigB’s retirement in 1991.

    Hence srk has number of +ve points than -ve which affect more.

    Inspite of all these things.srk could not match the Box office impact of Bigb.

    Total box office impact of srk till date is 1178 Crores where as BigB’s boxoffice impact alone in 70′s is 1905 Crores and total till dates accounts to be unbelievable 3839 Crores which is 3.5 times of srk.

  265. Sandy,

    We’d really love to know from where you got the below stats:
    1. Economic condition of India improving 1000 times in 10 to 20 years (from 1970/80s to 1990s)
    2. Piracy in 1980s taking away 25% of the movie business
    3. I’ve not heard of stage shows/ dramas giving competition to Amitabh’s movies in 70s or 80s!! Can you name a few dramas for us?
    4. Who said all grosses were confined to India? Check your facts… Overseas market was always there… It’s just that SRK popularized it more than anyone else.
    5. What makes television irrelevant? Fyi, it is one of the biggest competitor for movies. Plus since most new movies are either aired on cable TV or on the popular channels (within few months of a movie release), many of the middle class families wait to see the movie on TV than going to the theater. Plus the theater ticket rates have really shot up which makes it difficult for average middle class family to watch many movies in the theater. And to that the commutation costs to the theaters and back!!

    Clarifications:
    1. SRK was never a superstar when he started his career. He reached there only when he was a few films old.
    2. All throughout SRK’s rise to superstar-dom, there were Anil Kapoor (Tezaab), Aamir Khan (Qayamat se …, Dil etc.), Salman Khan (Maine pyar kiya), Sunny Deol (Ghayal), Sanjay Dutt etc. It was never a walk in the park for SRK. In fact, even Amitabh was making solo movies at that time, most of which bombed at the box office.
    3. What gross you are calculating for Amitabh movies is an accumulation of collection over 25 to 35 years where as that of SRK is only 10 to 12 years. So please calculate the box office collections of Amitabh’s movies for the same period (10 – 12 years from date of release)
    4. While tabulating Amitabh’s gross, do remember that none of his hit films were solo act (single hero). They were all multi-starers which brings down Amitabh’s contribution to the revenues even further. And then see the total number of movies Amitabh has done and compare that with the number of movies SRK has done. Your total gross will then go down drastically.

    And what are you talking of? SRK has spent 15-16 years in the industry where as Amitabh has spent 38-40 years!! Do you see that?
    Look at Amitabh’s box office status today – how many flops does he deliver every year? Compare that with the flops SRK delivers every year?

    (Will share more on this as and when i find time)

  266. @Avon
    Well.. Economic status today is much better than what it was during then..Following points should be convincing to u.
    1.Cumulative inflation from 1975 to 1995 is 5.94
    2.Globalisation in 1992 made number of users almost double.That contributes to 50% more viewers.
    3.Today bcz of IT boom in mid and early 90′s have made take home salaries almost 5 times what it use to be.
    4.Literacy percentage increased by 10% which contribute another 10 Crores viewers.
    5.Poverty ratio was 55% in 75 where as its 33% in 95. Contributing 15 Crores more people who can afford to watch movies.
    6. Lastly the increase in population cant be ignored which gives atleast 30- 40 Crores more viewers.

    Now coming to stage shows and Dramas..Well there r many which hv come and gone with period .. but here I mentioned it as an alternative entertainment source.Hardly people use to go to theaters.

    Well its not srk whi made oversea popular infact its globalisation made it easy.And following reasons should convince u.
    1. Globalisation in 1992 by PVN
    2. IT boom in 90′s initiating mass migration of Indians to US,UK,Autralia.
    And previously it was only Pak,Bangla,Srilanks and some southeast asian were oversea markets.

    And srk is known only to oversea Indians but not others. Where as Ab is popular in countries where hardly any Indian live such as South African coutries, Egypt etc..and AB popularity was spread by Video cassets.And his popularity can be proved jus by looking at international aclaims he has got.

    Ok even if u jus calculate movie collection of his solo hits then it grosses to 834 Crores(1971-1980) where as srk grosses to 598.23Crores(1992=02)

    Dont comparing AB at his 65 to srk itself is a Big honor which no other actor enjoyed..U campare srk movies when he will turn 60 to present BigB movies.. Now we r comparing their respective entry 10 years..

  267. Well even though there ware actors like Anil, Sunny,Salman,Aamir when srk entered none of them were superstars anytime.. jus one or two hits they might hv given before srk entry. But where as Rajesh kanna and Dharmendra weer real superstar and was almost impossible to compete with them..

  268. Strictly solo movie in 10 years of debut grosses to
    AB::499 Crores(1969-1978)
    srk::299 Crores(1992-2001)
    List how many solo hits did srk had according to u..

  269. Sandy,

    Here’s my take on your points:
    1. Economic conditions are better now but i want the source for the claim you made that it is 1000 times better. That’s a stupendous claim you’ve made!
    2. Inflation has been contained with great difficulty only in the recent years… Can you quote the source for the inflation figure?
    3. How many of india’s population are drawing 5 times the salary? IT boom has not had much impact with the masses. The common man is still struggling. Rural india is still reeling under financial pressures. IT boom is limited only to a few cities.
    4. Literacy percentage and movie business have little to do with each other. Fyi, it’s the so-called illiterates or the less-than-middle class that contribute a big chunk of box office revenues. The more literate a person, the more he’s inclined towards hollywood than bollywood :) That, for them, is a way to show-off their ‘literacy’ :)
    5. Wow, i’d love to know that poverty in india is only 33%!! India would be more or less in the ‘developed’ country bracket if that were the case. Can you tell me who from the finance minstry has given you this stat? :)
    6. Yes, to an extent, population increase can be generalized as resulting in increase in viewers but remember that there is also an equal increase in the number of alternatives available to movies (i’ve dwelt into that in my earlier comments). That apart, today, many of the hollywood movies clock more revenues in india than the native bollywood hits.
    All that divides the bollywood movie going audience dramatically.

    To add to the above, i think you are totally swept over by changes in the urban surroundings and are mistaking it for the big picture of india. If i may remind you, india is still 70+% rural. And what globalization you are harping about? Do you really know what it means and how much it has affected the common man here. In india, it’s effect till now has mostly been negative to the common man except for the urban population. The rich-poor divide in india is only growing with each day

    Well, on the drama-theater part, you don’t seem to have any specifics, so there’s little to talk here.

    Now ask anyone with a bit of proper knowledge about bollywood’s internationalization, and they’ll tell you that more than anybody else, it’s SRK who’s taken bollywood to the world. All other factors like PVN’s liberalization are add-on factors.

    Remember, Big B has been there in bollywood for donkey’s years now and hence, it’s but natural that he’s got those honours if he were at least a decent enough actor. But interestingly, if you look at the period when he’s got those honours (i’m referring to honours beyond the regular filmy awards), it only in his late 50s and most of them he’s received after he hit his 60s. Where as SRK has got international honours in his late 30s and early 40s (be it the order of france, Madame Tussaud’s, padmashri, etc.). SRK beats him there hands down once again.

    What solo hits of Amitabh are you using for those calculations? Can you name a few? There aren’t any, dear… Just cross-check…

    And not to forget that ‘Big’ B’s much hyped production company ABCL ran under heavy losses, went bankrupt, and breached it’s investors’ trust (banks wrote off crores of rupees as he couldn’t repay them) where as SRK’s Red Chillies is going pretty strong now despite the poor start.

    Well, as you yourself unknowingly note, there was much bigger competition SRK had than Big B. At least Anil, Aamir, Salman, and Sanjay had established themselves well to compete with SRK when he was a rising star. It’s just that SRK out did all of them so well, that many don’t see them as his competition. And then what about Big B himself, he had done many solo flops during those times! :)

    Sure, i’m waiting for SRK to run 60 and see whether ‘Big’ B even finds a place for comparison with him. Let’s hope SRK does not retire early :( :(

    Anyway, you only seem to be hovering around some peripheral issues… Let’s see if you have something more substantial to talk about and then may be we could interact again.

  270. Sanda

    How bad does Big B have to be for a Sanda to become a Sandy ? Well if Big B was that good you would not have to hide behind fabricated data.

    So now (according to Bachchanistas) SRK cannot be credited for the overseas growth because unfortunately, Tch Tch, under no circumstances Big B can be given any credit for that.

    SRK was bad in Mohabbatein (infact the movie was horrible also, i.e. according to Bachchanistas) because he tottooed Big B’s arse with a claim of ownership.

    Devdas was not good enough (LOL, day is night and night is day) only because Big B was deemed inadequate to play a full blown Devdas.

    How I wish that Big B had been a somebody so that you would not have to falsify data, or downgrade SRK or change your gender.

  271. Sandy or Sanda (as ‘Shaan Khan’ put it), whatever be it,

    To help you get a proper perspective on the box office stats that you are so eagerly yet equally ignorantly trying evangelize, you’d be better off doing this:
    As both Amitabh and SRK need to be brought on the same platform to get a correct picture, take all of SRK’s movies till date and estimate the gross revenues of those movies. Also calculate the number of years from SRK’s debut till date. Take those number of years (no. of SRK’s years) for Amitabh starting from his debut and then estimate the gross of all those movies. Eg: if SRK’s been acting for 16 years till date, take same number of years for Amitabh starting from his debut and then compare gross revenues for each…
    This way you might be able to better analyze what you are trying so hard to..

  272. Ms.Sandy: I think you are completely on the wrong track as you are basing your arguments on Big B’s solo hits where as Big B never had solo hits.

    In the comparison of Baadshah Khan and Big B, Baadshah Khan is the undisputed winner

  273. Well, Guys…
    1.Economic conditions I stated 1000 times might be bit exaggeration but yes there hv been a tremendous improvement in this domain.And I stated 1000 which includes all indirect factors which is a complex analysis.
    2. I get dtat of inflation and economics from India budget, bull market, stock analyst etc..I can give u complete chart of inflation from 1970.
    3. Well at least 30% or more.I hv also taken inflation care while stating this.Its ratio of salary to per ticket rate.
    4.Yes the statistics of poverty percentage is almost exact. And India is one of fastest developing nation in world. And again I disagree that literate is more inclined towards Hollywood, in fact u can state it as he also watches Hollywood movies.
    5. Again u repeated the same. And I already stated people prefer both not only Hollywood in most cases. And there is no dramatic viewers drop. In fact oversea market has increased number of viewers. If u jus count local grosser then srk has not achieved anything remarkable. Where as AB’s local collection itself crosses srk overall collection.
    Well, I think u need to survey Globalisation effect on India once again. I stated globalisation issue only bcz u people talk about oversea collection. Anyway plz state how it has been negative.
    Again u r wrong and in illusion that srk has taken Bollywood oversea. The first oversea hit is HAHK, and he is jus benefited from it. I completely disagree that he has any contribution in taking Bollywood oversea. Its only global macro economic and political affairs which takes part in it.

    Well there r hardly any International honors srk has got compared to BigB. And Padmashree Big has got in 1982.That’s more appreciable that he got those in his late 50’s and 60’s age where any other cries for any recognition. And the actor of millennium he got inspite of ur srk 10 years carrier. Anyway srk is never been a competitor for such great recognitions.

    Well here I am concerned more about filmography than business. As far as Production Company matters srk banner also has not given any big hits so far. And may be ABCL really couldn’t work first time. But in spite of that AB took only 2 years to clear debt and he re launched it again.
    Me too wait for srk turn 60 no 50 bcz he cant sustain till 60.

  274. Now the list of BIgB solo blockbusters with 60 Crores+ gross..
    1. 1973 Zanjeer (63 Crores)
    2. 1978 Don (68.53 Crores)
    3. 1979 Mr.Natwarlal (62.5)

    Solo Super Hits with 50 – 60 Crores Grossers
    1. 1978 Ganga ki Sougandh (53.4 Crores)
    2. 1981 Lawaris (57.87 Crores)
    3. 1981 Yarana (53.05)
    4. 1982 Khuddar (50.66 Crores)
    5. 1985 Mard (54.39 Crores)

    Note: Only 60 Crores + r considered blockbusters and 50+ as Super Hits.

    Here is srk list
    Blockbusters
    1. 1995 DDLJ (95.31 Crores)
    only one solo blockbuster grossing 60+ where as KKHH has Salman Khan in it.

    Super Hits with 50+ Grossers.
    1. 2006 Don (53.55 Crores)
    2. 2007 CDI (53.53 Crores)

    Only clean solo without any other Super star appearance in movie.

  275. Ms.Sandy: You are just beating around the bush. You are like a person going further and further on top of the wrong mountain and trying to shout from all directions to prove points about the mountain being the tallest with facts that are baseless. All you are doing with that is fooling yourself and others. Keep trying. Where as you still haven’t given information on Big B’s solo hits and his box office record comparison with Baadshah Khan till today which are the two best ways to measure your big claim. Avon has given a good way to make the comparison. I think you don’t have anything else to do and so trying to prove something that cannot be proven. Waste of time

  276. Sandy: if u dont have boxoffice knowledge then leave this post here. If u make this absolutely wrong figures by yourself then plz go to else where, there is no need of liars here on FK. If u take these figures from IBOS which is guaranteed affiliated Badchalan’s(Besharam) boxoffice site, then go to NG jhootbolo forum where the absolute liars like u are much needed. And by the way, in KKHH, Srk is in lead role and Salman’s role was not more than extended sp. appearance so it was an out-an-out Srk’s movie. If someone say that becoz of Salman’s sp. appearance in KKHH, it was not Srk’s movie then he/she is totally brain losted. Tell me those movies of Big Besharam, in which he was in lead role and the movie is blockbuster, NONE. His only Blockbuster movie is Sholay, in which his role is not more than the extended sp. appearance.

    So according to u, these are the only solo hits of Big Besharam. Now i give u the exact gross and verdict of these solo hits of Big Besharam:

    1973 Zanjeer 41.25 cr (Super Hit)
    1978 Don 32.24 cr (Hit)
    1979 Mr.Natwarlal 27 cr (Semi Hit)
    1978 Ganga ki Sougandh 21.18 crores (Above Average)
    1981 Lawaris 47.17 Crores (Super Hit)
    1981 Yarana 30.76 crores (Semi Hit)
    1982 Khuddar 34.64 Crores (Hit)
    1985 Mard 51.22 crores (Super Hit)

    Now look at Srk’s solo Hits:

    1995 DDLJ 95.16 crores (All Time Blockbuster)
    1998 KKHH 73.94 crores (All Time Blockbuster)
    2007 CDI 63.74 crores till date (Blockbuster)
    2006 Don 50.04 crores (Super Hit)
    2002 Devdas 46.10 crores (Hit)
    2004 Veer-Zaara 46 crores (Super Hit)
    1997 Dil To Pagal Hai 43.24 crore (Super Hit)
    2003 Kal Ho Na Ho 41.29 crores (Hit)
    2004 Main Hoon Naa 38 crores (Hit)
    1997 Pardes 27.79 crores (Hit)
    1993 Darr 27.16 crores (Hit)

    Big Besharam’s solo hits are as u given earlier, only change is that i mention their exact figures rather than self-made. As for Srk’s movies, these are solo hits of Srk according to ur definition of ‘Solo Hit’. Though apart from these, there are so many other movies which only stood at Srk’s firm shoulders like Karan Arjun, Mohabbatein, K3G, KANK etc. which are also considered as Srk’s solo hits but i did’nt include them for ur personal satisfaction and according to ur criteria of ‘solo hits’.

    Also note that all the figures are not actual figures but these are all time adjusted figures taken from the most trusted indian box office site on net
    i-e BOI.

    From the above movies which, according to Sanda’s view, are the only solo hits of Big Besharam, he could’nt give even a single blockbuster solo.

    Now Sanday ji, u’ve to do one thing, just bury ur head under Big Besharam’s dirty ass and then never come to this blog ever again, otherwise ur name will not be Sandy but Sanda Be-gherat.

  277. @Mate and all SRK Fanatics:

    Suraj pe dhookne se dook khud apne upper girta hai.

    U all can reach up to lowest level calling some one sanda and other besharam

    But facts will remain facts.

    Koi ulta ho ke bhi naachega tau bhi Amitabh nahin ban paayega

  278. sorry typo

    thookna (spitting) not dookna

  279. “Ulta chor kotwaal ko daantay.”

    it’s for u Rude. Agar samajh gaye to bahut acha, warna Shaan tumhain achi tara samjha de ga.

  280. And Mr. Dookna Thookna, koi kaam ki baat karo. ‘Dook Thook’ baad main lena. :D

  281. ‘Koi ulta ho ke bhi naachega tau bhi Amitabh nahin ban paayega’

    Yeah Rude (Dook Thook), u’re rite. Kyun ke Amitabh ban ne ke liye poora ka poora high quality besharam hona pade ga. :D

  282. HIGH QUALITY BESHARAM TU HI HOGA MATE…

    SRKS ROLES CAN EASILY BE DONE BY BIG B BUT NOT VICE VERSA…CAN U IMAGINE SRK IN ZANJEER SHOLAY AAA OR BLACK?? JUST TO NAME A FEW…

    BUT BIG B CAN EASILY PLAY ALL OF SRKS ROLES..I MEAN ALL SRK DOES IS CRY AND STUTTER AND HAM IN EVERY MOVIE HE DOES DOESNT HE??

    AND WHAT WILL SRK DO WHEN HE IS 65?? HE WONT BE WORKING WITH THE CHOPRAS OR JOHAR OR FARAH AS THEY WILL REQUIRE YOUNGER ACTORS…

    SRK WILL NOT BE AS GOOD AS THE BIG B WHEN HE TURNS 65….PERIOD

  283. Sanda / Rude Rash/ Satyam / Akshay / Bahchanista

    If Big B genuinely was so good you would not have to inflate his box office numbers (or fabricate lies) in order to make him look good. If Big B’s Don was a hit then why did its director never make another movie again. Or why did its Producer have such a miserable end ? If Big B’s Don had been a major hit or done right a remake would have been redundant (atleast this early). But as I have said before, Big B’s Don is being touted as a hit only to discount SRK’s Don (and vice versa). How pathetic of you guys.

    My friend there is no desire on anyone’s part to become another flop artist. Why would anyone want to be another Big B when he can be himself, i.e. SRK, the Don Jungli Billa Khan of Bollywood.

  284. EVEN SRK ADMITTED IN AN INTERVIEW TO FILMFARE THAT HE OVERACTS AND HE WASNT JESTING…U HEARD IT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH ITSELF…

    WHAT DO U SRK FANS HAVE 2 SAY NOW??

  285. Hari Bhari

    Really real “Hari Bhari” thoughts strike you. I hope you remember the song, “Ke Sara Sara”, the future is not ours to see. What will be, will be (we cannot know or predict), but at the present SRK has tattooed his claim of ownership on the Bachchalan arse three times (Mohabbatein, KBC3 and Don).

  286. Hari Bhai

    You need to grow up and get an education before you will be in a position to understand SRK’s humor and or loaded words.

  287. Sandy and Rude-rash,

    Enough of your eye-washing business here. Now go and do some chaddi-wash for Big Besharam.. We’re tired of dealing with dim-wits.. Shoo shoo

  288. Aur Harry_Mann, Tu asylum se phir choot gaya?? Oh haan, bandar ko woh log bhi kitni der bandh ke rakte..

  289. LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL…OL Varun :D

  290. Varun Relax – Discuss Related to topic – No personal Comments

  291. AksFilmi: What else can you do with such people who keep talking about the same stupid things all the time. They don’t seem to understand things but go on blabbering without any base. Many people have tried making these people understand things but they just don’t get it!!! One doesn’t have the time to keep replying to their idiotic messages and one can’t keep quiet else they start assuming that they are correct. Do you have a better way to deal with such people?? If you have, we can try that.

  292. Its shame to see that none of srk followers has any decency in conversation. All behave as cheep as srk.
    Now u ppl hv no stats to prove srk so jus shouting and trying to abuse others. I thought at least varun could be bit sensible.Anyways how can u be professional when following AssRGay.If anyone has any stats on which one can argue then let me know .If u ppl say IBOS is biased on Bachchan then BOI is biased on AssRGay.Neither CDI is already almost out of market not has completed 25 weeks. Declared blockbuster by BOI. And KKHH(Salman Khan),Darr(Sunny),DTPH(Akshay),VeerZara(BigB),Devdas(Jaki),MeHuNa (Sunil)r not solo.IF 50 crore is blockbuster then i can list another 10 AB movies.

  293. Urs vulgar statements reflect u ppls mentality and immaturity along with frustration.

  294. “Neither CDI is already almost out of market not has completed 25 weeks.”

    Mr. Sanday, what was that, is that make sense? if u dont have enough knowledge of indian boxoffice then leave this thread right now. Never waste our time with ur baseless silly comments. Apna mota damag kahin aur use karo, yeh tumhare bas ki baat nahin Mr or Mrs Sanda.

  295. Ms.Sandy: Like me, i think most people on this forum really don’t have the time or the patience to keep arguing baselessly with people like you. Like someone said earlier, you must try something like NG where people have more time and energy to go on about such BS.

    And blockbusters are declared not by BOI but based on revenue and Chak De’s revenues are the highest among any of the 2007 films. And it is now among the top five films (in terms of revenues) of this decade. Just check any bollywood site and see for yourself. All this considering that Chak de was made tax free means a very big achievement. Otherwise, it’s revenues would’ve been 25 to 30% higher which would’ve put it among the top three films of this decade in terms of BO. And that film is also the solo-est of all solos high revenue film among all films done by any true big star till today.

    Ms.Sandy: ‘cheep’ is spelt as c-h-e-a-p (as in c for chota, h for head, e for empty, a for aapka, p for popat)

  296. @varun/mate and all SRK Fanatics

    why all of u r so frustrated guys.Chill out.

    But kya karien except you ,no one is agreed to accept SRK as bigg as AB. tau ofcourse frustration tau hogi hi.

  297. *DELETED*

  298. Agree Sanda, Big Besharam cant be changed. He was Big Besharam, he is and he will be. Also agree with u that how much u bark Sanda, he remains the same Besharam Khooni Darinda. Totally agree Sanda.

  299. By the way, nice word ‘Frustrated’ that u’ve learnt recently. Now learn two or three more word like this. Chalo ab ache bachon ki tara abc… yaad karo.

  300. chup be sandy kutte….

  301. TO ALL SRK HATERS AND AMITABH LOVERS

    i keep reading that all r saying that srk has been successful because of big banners and big directors but the fact is that he made the banners and directors big.

    well in ddlj aditya chopra was making his directorial debut.at that time who would have said he would become a great director.if the film wouldnt have worked then aditya chopra wouldnt have called a good director.
    from this it is clear that srk made aditya chopra famous

    the same is the case with karan johar.before the realease of kuch kuch hota hain who would have said that he is a great director.srk did this film before karan johar became famous as a director.

    and also in the case of farah khan.no knew how farah is good as a director but he did her and became a huge hit

    SO THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS THAT BIG BANNERS AND BIG DIRECTORS HAS NOT MADE SRK FAMOUS BUT SRK MADE THE BANNERS AND DIRECTORS FAMOUS

    so all u srk haters if u r a human being(i doubt so) and if u have some sense, then just accept the fact that srk is a true superstar and a fantastic actor.u also know that he is no 1 and no one can ever come even close to him(not even in dreams)and just stop finding an excuse.

    and if now also U cant understand the fact then i cant help u all guys.ONLY MENTAL DOCTORS CAN HELP U.

  302. Ms.Sandy or Mr.Saand: We can see that you’ve madly and blindly fallen in love with that 65 year old. Congrats! Aapke ‘haathi ke bhes mein gadhe’ ko bhi mubarak baad. 65-saal ke boodhe ko ek adha-jawaan saand mubarak ho! Jr. Besharam Saand ke liye hamari advance mein duwayein…
    Aur jaani, jinke ghar sheeshe ke hote hein, woh doosron ke ghar pe pathar nahin phenkte…

  303. Amair

    SO THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS THAT BIG BANNERS AND BIG DIRECTORS HAS NOT MADE SRK FAMOUS BUT SRK MADE THE BANNERS AND DIRECTORS FAMOUS

    During the construction of their studio, YRF needed finances in a hurry, in that clutch situation, Adi and Yash Ji turned to SRK and he obliged with Veer Zaara. Likewise after the disasterous Jhoom Barabar Jhoom with the third rate actor Lil C, SRK bailed YRF films out with CDI (the biggest hit so far, Pre OSO, in 2007).

  304. All AssRGay lovers,,,,heheheh….. Deleted my scrap….cant dare to face!!!!!!!!!! none of u r good analysers and matures enough to understand what acting and skills is.. So jus shut ur mouth and lick his ass..

  305. Bachalan is just too over-hyped by the b* lickers.

    He is over publicized self-prominent super star of Indian Cinema who proclaims himself to be the star of the millennium.

    Even his full-fledged commercial movies earn very little.

    As far as art movie is concerned…he did unwatchable nautanki in “black”…

    It is no strange that he indulges in soft-porn movies now-a-days to earn money.

    Some of the famous bachalan movies were due to the contribution by much-loved superstars of hindi cinema—-Sholay (Dharmendra), Kabhie Kabhie( Shashi Kapoor) Mukadder ka sikander(Vinod Khanna) Anand & Namak Haram(Rajesh Khanna),Shakti(Dilip kumar),agneepath(mithun chakraborty)

    Bachalan was helped by his political connection with gandhi family…nothing else.Just watch how many movies he required to establish himself…one will get the answer.

    Now Lil C is following his father’s footsteps…forced stardom being thrust upon us.

    bachalan’s acting skills are just little more than average…..

    And as far as human being is concerned….bachalan’s wrongdoings can put a lot of evil people to shame.

  306. kaushik
    grow up!!!!!!

  307. Ms.Sandy, Why are you so selective in removing your comments. Why not remove all of them? That way, you’ll lighten much of the empty load there is on this posting…

    Dheerendra,

    Koushik will surely grow up, if not already ‘grown’. We are more worried about you as you might never grow up!!

  308. varun
    behave like an educated person…..everyones knows that a 65 year old man is budha…but we don’t call them so….if u call ppl of that age budha at ur home its fine. supporting ur star is one thing. we never said that ur CKD looks like a gay.

  309. Dheerendra: Since you’ve now started going to school, we’ll learn how to behave from you…
    See, you’ve now made another statement that will deny you admission even in the first grade – if you think SRK looks like a gay, you must check your gender/ sexual orientation. Because some narrow-minded fools like you are new to the word ‘gay’, may be you go on using it everywhere with your near and dear ones. I want more than just your example, can you give us your definition of gay? Please don’t point a finger at yourself. We know that. Define it.

    Like people have pointed out often in this forum, this gay thing is once again one of those typical SRK statements which a narrow-minded fool like you would’ve comprehended superficially and then started blabbering about it. His association with friends like Karan Johar is so close that people us that as another one of those excuses to pull down SRK’s superstar status. Though it has not worked at all. Thereafter, one doesn’t need to have multiple affairs like your Bachalan, to prove one’s sexual orientation.

  310. @varun
    postings r removed bcz u ppl got scared that u all will be exposed with assrgay.. u ppl cant see reality,and i suggest all asssrgay lovers to go to doctor and get checked ur mental status. definatelly its not normal.hope after treatment u can think bit better,..

    some r giving sick stamts like his movies r hit bcz of other side actors presence but realty is his presence had made most movies hit.. thats y even Yesh chopra call him one man industry..

    He sole handedly carried most films to hit..
    checkout box office collection i hv given..

    assrgay is the most overrated actor in bollywood.he cant even think to reach AB’s status and glory..

    AB given atleast 1 superhit every year for 15 consecutive years which no other actor managed to give..

  311. Hi sandy,

    No body here is denying that BIG B was a great superstar and great actor.We all admire him.But why dont you guys understand that at this moment SRK is the superstar and the biggest crowd puller.On the other hand BIG B just a pale shadow of himself.

  312. Even SRK has given atlesat one hit every year since his debut.FYI SRKs hit ratio is better than most of the actors and second only to Dilip Kumar.

  313. Sandy/Sandass,

    Are you aware that Bachalan has long been a gay icon?

    According to many scholars and activists, Amitabh Bachchan’s yaaranas and dostis were given as much weight in the script as his stereotype characterisation of the angry young man.

    Examples are many like yarri hai imaan meri…. Zanzeer(pran) , yeh dosti…. sholay(dharmendra),bhole o bhole tu rutha dil tuta …..Yaarana (Amjad Khan),bathing scene….. silsila(shashi kapoor)

  314. When YASH CHOPRA and YASH JOHAR stop signing SRK. SRK will be out of work.

    99% of his hit films are with them.

    It is insulting to compare SRK to Amitabh.

    AB is a national ICON. SRK is just another actor who will come and go…

    Even today AB is the biggest indian celebrity and he is 65. Where will SRK be when he is 65???? Noone would know him.

    Please dont compare a LEGEND to COPYCATSs…

    its really insulting for BIGB fans…

  315. Whenever SRK does not have KARAN JOHAR and YASH CHOPRA behind him things just look pathetic…
    Asoka, Duplicate, Swades, Paheli, Josh, Baadshah, Pir bi dil ha hindustani, etc etc etc….all flops!!

    90% of his films FLOP without the YASH RAJ BANNER and KARAN JOHAR…

    the only HIT i can think of is MAIN HOIN NA. and that was a HOME PRODUCTION…

    There is simply no comparion between BIG B and SRK.

    SRK is like a small boy! HE tries to copy him but fails everytime. He tried it with DON and failed.!! He tried it with KBC and failed.

    He should try to be himself and not copy!

  316. ‘It is insulting to compare SRK to Amitabh.’

    Yeah Raziya Sultana, u’re rite becoz SRK can never be a Besharam like Big B. He can never be a Doodhwala like Big Besharam Doodhwala.

    ‘Even today AB is the biggest indian celebrity and he is 65.’

    Agree with u Raziya Sulatana, that Big Besharam is the biggest indian celebrity in being besharam, oh yeah he’s also the biggest indian celebrity interms of hight. But Srk can never be like him, because Big Besharam is such a top-class Besharam who gave flops over flops since last 25 years but still he did’nt leave the industry, anyother person cant be such Besharam like Big Besharam is.

    ’99% of his hit films are with them.’

    O Raziya, aqal ke jani dushman, first get some knowledge of indian cinema then come here. More than 60% of Srk’s successes were outside these banners u mentioned. And when the films like Darr, DDLJ and KKHH released, these banners/director were at their very early stages, becoz DDLJ and KKHH both are directed by debutants. So it’s very clear that these banners did’nt make Srk but Srk established these banners by his charm and acting abilities, put his great persona into these banners, that take these production houses to another level of greatness, unlike some other so-called stars like Hrithik and Lil C who got movies when YRF will become the biggest producers in India, thanks to Srk. So again first think hundred times before passing ur stupid remarks Raziya Sultana.

    ‘AB is a national ICON. SRK is just another actor who will come and go…’

    Yeah Raziya Sultana, AB is a national ICON in Besharami thats why is commonly known as Big Besharam Doodhwala by all and sundry. And by the way, Srk is the only actor who gave hits over hits since last fifteen years from the start of his career. A great actor who get the most awards in the history of bollywood, only behind the great Dilip Saab and soon he will cross him too. Whenever a much-hyped newcomer enter into the industry, he’s compared with Srk and each time Srk out-shown them (like Hrithik, Lil C, Vivek, and Shahid). why not the media compared them with the others like Aamir, Sunny Deol, Akshay, etc. because the media know very well that Srk is the real ICON for all bollywood actors to set up their goals. Now at the age of 42, he still gave the biggest blockbusters like CDI and now he has reached to such level of greatness that now he’s competing with the biggest hollywood banner Columbia Tristar and as usual he’s ready to hit them hard. Lets see how Srk’s OSO knock down Sawariya on 9th of Nov. Just wait and see Raziya Sultana.

  317. Deewana (Super Hit), Baazigar (Super Hit), Karan Arjun (Blockbuster), Pardes (Hit), Devdas (Super Hit), Chalte Chalte (Hit), Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam (Hit), Main Hoon Na (Super Hit), Don (Super Hit) are all directed by Yash Chopra/Karan Johar or anyother?

    Apart from these, Kal Ho Naa Ho and Chak De India, though, produced by Karan/Chopra but not directed by them.

  318. Raziya, neend main ho? Josh was an out-an-out hit declared by every trade analyst. Swades was ‘Average’ at minimum and Paheli was a plain ‘Average’. First get some knowlege of box office Raziya neendu.

  319. BIG B kicked out

    dharmendra
    vinod khanna
    rajesh khanna
    dilip kumar

    and much more

    SRK is competing with whome??

    SRK is a copy cat

    BIG B DID KBC HE DID KBC
    BIG B DID DON HE APPEARED IN DON

    AAMIR SANG A SONG IN MOVIE HE DID SAME
    BIG B STARTED PRODUCTION CO HE DID SAME

    AAMIR DID LAAGAN HE HAD TO DO CHAK DE

    NOW AAMIR IS DIRECTING,HE WILL DO THIS SOON

    SRK SUCKS.. NO PERSONALITY, AT 40 HE IS LOOKING OLD AT 60 HE WILL NOT BE ABOE TO BARELY WALK

  320. kbc is all time blockbuster

    because of shahrukh khan

    26 million people watched srk kbc this was big population every day

    bigger then amit

    amit didnt have that amount of people

    so plz have your mental checkup. ithink you have some inner problem you know inner problem

    hahaha

  321. I think there are some very ignorant people on this forum.
    Amitabh Bachchan is the greatest ever superstar indian has ever seen. Let me remind people who were too young on here how big this man was in his heyday and his impact on the nation…

    You can combine (SRK, Salman, Aamir, Hrithik, Akshay) and they will still fail to touch Amitabh in his heyday. His superstardom will outstrip all the stars today combined.

    In 1982 when he lay ill in breach candy hospital the whole of india came to a halt, millions of people from all walks of life prayed, thousands slept outside the hospital, people were ready to donate parts of thier limbs to save him, there was even reports of sucides. Tell me which actor has ever had this appeal in bollywood???? The whole country has never witnessed this kind of craze ever before. For me this is megastardom!! This is stardom that the likes of SRK can only dream about.

    Even today when he celebrates his birthdays there is near mass hysteria outside his house. Just a couple of weeks ago he celebrated his 65th birthday and there were thousands of people outside his house to wish him. My quesiton is, how many people will be outside SRKs house when he turns 65???

    To compare an ICON like Amitabh to another actor is just insulting to Amitabh. Please read the history of indian cinema before you post messages.

    Go to this link from boxofficeindia. It shows that from 1975-1991 there was ONE MAN INDUSTRY. No actor has ever dominated indian cinema like this before or after. For 17 years he was the undisputed number one megastar. Today he has become a demi-god. Also check out SRKs years, you will realise that during his so-called reign he has been eclipsed by Aamir Khan, hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan, Sunny Deol etc.

    http://boxofficeindia.com/topactors.htm

    The era of megastardom finished with Amitabh Bachchan!!

  322. i think big b(besharam) has given some money to this idiot rizwan thats why he is favouring him.otherwise no sensible person would compare an idiot like big b(besharam) to the immortal legend like SRK…………

  323. We dont need money to promote a LEGEND. The world knows. I want a constructive argument here not childesh remarks like big besharam etc.

    I dont think SRK fans like hearing the truth. The truth is the peak AB reached in the 1980s will NEVER ever be reached by any actor. Todays actors like SRK rely on the media to promote them, without the media SRK will be nothing. He is media-made!

    Amitabh Bachchan banned the media from 1975-1990. Total BAN. This was the time where he went on to become the GREATEST SUPERSTAR EVER without the help of the media. Just like a FISH needs WATER to survive, SRK needs the MEDIA to survive. Hardly a legend????

    My question to SRK fans is, where will he be when he is 65??? Would people be talking about him like AB??

    This comparsion is really silly. How can you really compare a TRUE LEGEND to an over-rated star who relies on the media to stay alive.

  324. ALL SHAHRUKH FANS…Please go to the following website.

    http://ibosnetwork.com/asp/topactors.asp?isactress=false

    Forget Amitabh Bachchan, Even Dilip Kumar,Dharmendra and Rajesh Khanna are more succesfull than SRK at the box office.

    Salman Khan is only 1 hit away from SRK….

    This site did make me laugh…

  325. Mr. Rizwan-ul-haq,

    It was not that entire press banned amitabh during the eighties.

    Bachchalan had banned certain publications like stardust because he disliked what was being published about him……it was about his alleged womanising.

    In the year 1975, the country saw an Emergency declared by Indira Gandhi. Reportedly, Amitabh Bachchan was very close to the Gandhi family. He is said to have used his influence in attempting to shut down Stardust. Censors got harsh on Stardust for carrying items on Amitabh. There was a strong censorship imposed on the press, due to which magazines other than Stardust had to suffer as well.

    It was in 1982, when amitabh was juggling between life and death, stardust made the first peace offering writing an article for this ungrateful bachalan.

    When in 1989, bofors scandal alienated him from the people, then only he lifted his ban on stardust.

    He used press to his advantage all the time.

  326. Hey all srks hans some fools remain fools forever.So why to argue with them.

    We all know what SRK is.No need justify it to a fool called Rizwan.He is a jelous monkey.Let him speak .Because this is the only way that makes him proud about himself..(As there is no other to resaon feel proud being a bacchan fan)

  327. “My question to SRK fans is, where will he be when he is 65??? Would people be talking about him like AB??”

    Yeah Razia Sultana, when Srk is at 65, he will never be like Big Besharam, because he set up very high standards of acting for himself, and he can never do crap work in the crap movies like RGV ki Aag, Nishabd, Cheeni Kum, Darna zuroori Hai and many more, not now and not at the age of 65. Thats why he is known as ‘The King of Bollywood’ and Big B is known as Big Besharam Doodhwala.

  328. this is a totally baseless argument…this blog is really crazy…srk fans jus cannot accept the truth and bash up evryone who supports sumoneles!!!! get a life dudes! its not necessary tht evryone likes srk, coz evryone has their own opinion! learn to respect otherz opinions. no ones asking u to stop liking srk!!! then wht r u getting so hysterical abt???

  329. “its not necessary tht evryone likes srk …”

    Yeah Ms. Anjali, u’re rite that its not necessary that everyone likes Srk, but as we all know very well that Srk has the strongest fan-base than any other star in the history of bollywood. So dont be surprised if we bash other stars for Srk becoz it’s the general rule of this world that ‘Might is Right’. But this is also a bitter truth for all Srk haters like u that Srk reached at this peak, where other Stars only can dream for, through a severe kind of hard work. He really deserved to be called the undisputed ‘King of Bollywood”.

  330. “its not necessary tht evryone likes srk …”

    Yeah Ms. Anjali, u’re rite that its not necessary that everyone likes Srk, but as we all know very well that Srk has the strongest and largest fan-base than any other star in the history of bollywood. So dont be surprised if we bash other stars for Srk becoz it’s the general rule of this world that ‘Might is Right’. But this is also a bitter truth for all Srk haters like u that Srk reached at this peak, where other Stars only can dream for, through a severe kind of hard work. He really deserved to be called the undisputed ‘King of Bollywood”.

  331. Rizwan: Anagram of your name is ‘wiz-ran’ meaning ‘wisdom is in running away’. It’s wiser for you to run away from this blog than take be covered with shit unless you’re used to that……. Also we don’t have so much time like you to keep convincing others of the impossible (convincing others that SRK is not today’s king of bollywood)…….. If you think Amitabh is the biggest superstar today, keep thinking so like that frog in the well who always thought that it’s well was the only world.

    Rajeev was right in saying – “Hey all srks hans some fools remain fools forever.So why to argue with them.”

    The above applies to Anjali too……… Hysteria is a part of fan following, Ms.An-an-an-jali.

  332. Sandy: Now that you have deleted your comments (meaning you’ve accepted the truth and hence given up), i don’t have anything to say to you. And your fabricated data has no value.

  333. This has to be the most ludicrous statement of the century.

    “Srk has the strongest fan-base than any other star in the history of bollywood”

    History of bollywood???? We dont want to hear your opinions on what you think but want to listen to FACTS. Please keep your opinions to yourself..

    Let me tell you his fanbase, urban fans in big cities and NRIs. Majority of the indian population reside in small towns in rural india. GO to them and ask them about SRK?? 90% of the indian population reside there. You are getting confused with fans in big cities who are the minority in india. SRK khans films only run at mulitplexes in urban centres and dont run at single screens in small towns, this is ACTUALLY A FACT. There is no point even discussing this with you as you are a blind follower… When you talk about fanbases the stars in bollywood who have had a MUCH BIGGER fanbase than him are Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan. All these names have had a bigger fanbase than him in india. If you want to ask this question abroad, well you only have to look at the BBC survey poll to find the greatest star..Where was SRK?? Amitabh Bachchan won the poll ahead of hollywood legends.

    I suggest you read up and study the history of bollywood. The best book that covers the history is “BOLLYWOOD by Mihir Bose”

    http://www.easternbookcorporation.com/moreinfo.php?txt_searchstring=13078

    i read the entire book and i can tell you that Shahrukh Khan was hardly mentioned in the book whereas Amitabh had an entire chapter written about him. The question now arises is, do you know more than Mihir Bose?? (film historian).

    I rest my case.

  334. And talking about KBC3. Why did this show FLOP??? Where did his so-called fanbase run off too….

    StarTV tried thier best to hide the fact that the show with SRK flopped, thats why it was taken off air.

    the TRPs of the show hardly made the top10 in india…..

    check this article which proves the show FLOPPED!!

    http://www.mouthshut.com/review/Kaun_Banega_Crorepati_3-118346-1.html

  335. SRK fans…… Only two more days to go for OSO’s release!!!!!!!!! Hip, hip hurrah……..

  336. Rizwan/ Wiz-ran: just correct your facts……. KBC3 was the biggest hit of all KBCs. and for your information, SRK is once again donning the garb for KBC4. Shootings to begin early next year………. If it was a flop, why will they want to cast SRK again……….. Anyway, this KBC3 topic has been discussed enough in the past and almost everyone thought it was a hit……………
    Of course, for Amitabh’s dog, Amitabh is always the best………

    As for that mouthshut article, just see how the article has been rated by those members? Out of millions and millions of internet users, the article has been rated only by 8 users and those 8 users have rated it 1 out 5 stars. That means it is a pathetic article and the member’s have also given it a ‘NO’ recommendation. If you are able read english, you would’ve noticed that…….. So just shut you mouth and not talk about mouthshut…………..

  337. VARUN..
    Its mod who deleted my msg.. I think he coudnt defend srk fake glory anymore..
    Srk is jus a self proclaimed king khan where as AB is declared as Star of Millanium by BBC.So jus stop barking. If u hv any strong stat on which u can prove srk achievements then post here.

  338. Sandy
    ..We have a lot of facts and figures which can prove that SRK is far ahead as far as BO and impact on the audience is cocenned,but point is if fools like you have the brains to understand these facts???

  339. Rizwan ,KBC 3 was not a flop.In fact KBC 2 was a flop.In fact the last episode of KBC 3 is the most profitable seriel in TV history.

    Secondly yes its atruth t5hat SRK has the biggest fan base in the world and his gan base is even more than that of Tom cruise and Brad Pitt.

    You can check out the feb 2007 issue of TIMES magazine to confirm this

  340. Wiz-ran: Don’t ‘rest your case’….. just ‘rest in peace’……..

    Just look at the titillating cover the author has chosen for the book that is suppose to be history of bollywood (http://www.tempus-publishing.com/bookdetails.php?isbn=9780752428352). Why did he use such an obscene cover that looks like a book on kamasutra than history of bollywood. And more importantly, why you Bachalan is not on the cover if he is so revered?? It is becuase the writer too is more interested in masala than actual ‘history’. And bachalan’s life has been full of masala including his romantic liasions, political scandals etc. So there is naturally more that can be said about him that masala readers will like…… SRK has no scandals like bachalan. Plus bachalan has spent 35+ years in bollywood unlike SRK’s 16 years. Hence the writer naturally has more to write about bachalan.
    And mihir bose is a writer-journalist and not, like you said, “bollywood historian”……… Like mihir bose, you too are quite a masala-adding addict.

    And for all you know, like you, he too might be Bachalan’s dog and hence more ‘loyal’ towards him.
    Ok tommy/Rizwan, pedigree time……

  341. Sandy: sorry, i only deal with humans…… Try bachalan who still loves himself and hence dogs……

  342. Wow Rajeev….. i’d missed that point completely…… SRK has more fans than Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt!!! What more???

  343. Varun,

    we shouldnt argue with these fools who are jeolous of the success of SRK.

    One need not prove time and again that out of his last 14 movies SRK has given 12 straight hits except Swades and paheli

  344. Questions to all SRK khans why do you keep on barking about him without giving any evidence!! I want PROOF of his stardom not your silly comments..

    1) Prove on here that KBC3 was a big success. Only articles from indiantelevison.com count as they are the website that study records and statistics of each TV show. It has been proved time and time again that KBC3 has been a FLOP!! only SRK fans keep barking that it is not. CAN YOU PROVE TO ME THAT IT HAS BEEN A SUCCESS. It should be an easy question to answer. Please use only Indiantelivison.com as the source.

    2) Proves that SRK has got the biggest FANBASE in the history of indian cinema more than AMITABH. Only articles from respected film historians count. Prove to me that he is a bigger supertar than Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan or Dilip Kumar. by respected film historians or big producers or directors. I want an article from them to state that his stardom is BIGGER than dilip kumar, Rajesh Khanna or Amitabh Bachchan.

    I look forward to your replies….

    If you cannot give proper evidence then please just remain quiet and stop giving your own opinions.

  345. Rizwan/ wiz-ran: Like Rajeev too says, we don’t have any interest in proving anything to you fanatics………. If you have eyes (and hopefully brains), you can see and figure things out yourself. If you can’t or don’t, curse your luck……… but pls spare us…….

  346. It’s a pity that less than 18 year olds (mentally at least) like Rizwan, Sandy are allowed on this blog. As they say, like star, like fans………

  347. As they say, like star, like fans………

    yeah suits on u varun

    as u cant answer the question
    and u know the fact
    u use words to cope up

    get well soon varun

  348. chup be amit

  349. Oye Amit (or whoever you are): Why wag your tongue when you have to disguise yourself? Spare me. And if not disguising, you (Amit) were no where in the scene and so stay out of it.

  350. mr varun and srk fan who evr u r
    i dont care
    both of u cant answer rizwan’s questions
    so u will do these silly things

    aur tu srk fan tu chup chaap ja aur cinema dekh seeti bajaa

    jyaada se jyaada kya gaali dega
    aur kuch karne ki aukaad to hai nahi teri

    get well soon varun and srk fan

  351. Rizwan /Amit /The same old freak Akshay/Satyam

    Questions to all SRK khans why do you keep on barking about him without giving any evidence!! I want PROOF of his stardom

    I think you have got it wrong. As claimant, it is your responsibility to prove your claim, not the other way around. The court of public opinion says that SRK is the best ever star actor that Bollywood has seen. We believe that SRK is bigger than DK or Big Bad Stinky Bachchalan or even Rajesh Khanna. Although RK did, at his peak, attain a level (even if that was for a very short period) that is unparalleled. Perhaps HR could have cross that mark had he followed KNPH with another KNPH. But let us not digress with flash in the pans (we like durable star actors with strong legs and even stronger lungs). Hence let us start with the position that SRK is bigger than DK, Big B and RK put together (Period, Khallas, End of Story). Now if you claim otherwise and you have the right to do so, please present your case. If your position holds merit, we will agree with you. Remember, if you forge facts, exaggerate BO returns of Big B or under report SRK’s BO returns then your claim will loose credibility. Hence I urge you to not to do that. Likewise please don’t claim that Big B was the hero of Sholay etc when he was just a sidekick. These kind of tom foolery will destroy your claim.

    I look forward to hearing your case. Let the games begin.

  352. Shaan khan talk about reversing the question.

    Amitabh is a legend, Dilip Kumar is a legend, you said that Shahrukh Khan is bigger than they ever were. So i asked a few questions and YET not 1 shahrukh fan can answer…

    This is really funny, its quite insulting to Amitabh and Dilip that their names are dragged down and is compared to SRK.

    I knew i will get NO ANSWERS. This just proves that SRK is not even in the top 5 stars EVER in india. Forget NO.1 He is not even in the top 5.

    You see i deal strictly with evidence and statistics, as you have asked me the question, here is the answers.

    1) go to this website. Boxoffice records for the biggest stars in indian history.

    http://ibosnetwork.com/asp/topactors.asp?isactress=false

    this shows the NET BOXOFFICE REPORT OF AB. He is FAR FAR THE BIGGEST STAR INDIAN HAS EVER SEEN. This is just one proof from just the box office. It also shows that he has had nearly 60 big grossers. This site shows that SRK has only 15 big grossers. Can you see how silly this argument is. Go to the website and look at Dilip Kumar and also Rajesh Khanna.

    2) Madamme Tussauds did a poll in 2000 to find who they should pick as the FIRST INDIAN STAR at the museaum. AB, SRK, SALMAN etc etc were in the survey. Who WON.?? AMITABH BACHCHAN.
    The fans voted HIM as the star they wanted to see at the museum, where was the so called SRK fanbase? Where did it disappear??

    3) BBC did a poll to find the greatest STAR ever. Again AMITABH BACHCHAN won. Where was SRK???

    4) BOXOFFICEINDIA shows that BIGB has the biggest grossing actor in the history of indian boxoffice. in 1978 he had 4 movies that celebrated golden jubliees in 1 year that is unheard of today.

    I can go on and on and on….but is there any point???

    Just accept that SRK is NOT a legend and he will be out of work when he hits 50. He should be compared to stars like Rishi Kapoor, Jeetenra etc.

  353. Rizwan First Answer My Questions!

    Q3. Who Overshadowed Amitabh Bachchan in Shakti and Mohabbatein?
    Ans 3. Dilip Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan.

    Q4. Show me Prove that KBC 2 was not a Flop?

    Ans 7. Ram Gopal Verma Ki Aag.

    Q8. Tell me one Amitabh Bachchan Movie without Heroine and it was a Hit?
    Ans 8. None. While Shah Rukh Khan has Chak De! India. (Sorry this is Useless Question because Amitabh Bachchan in His Entire Life didn’t have Solo Blockbuster).

  354. Rizwan!

    Go to http://www.boxofficeindia.com you will come to know how many Big Grossers Amitabh Bachchan has? None. This site has also proved that Amitabh Bachchan doesn’t have Solo All Time Blockbuster and Solo Blockbuster. While Shah Rukh Khan has 2 Solo All Time Blockbuster and 1 Solo Blockbuster.

  355. Even Journals of that Era Prove that. Blockbuster was started by Khan’s and nobody else and now Hrithik Roshan is doing it.

  356. Rizwan

    Shaan Khan talk about reversing the question.

    There are rules of engagement. I am not at your door, knocking at it, and trying to change your mind. You have come here with an half arsed theory that feebly attempts to purport that SRK may not be the best star actor. Hence the responsibility lies on you and not me. Likewise, if you goto court, it is not the court’s responsibility to prove anything. It is your responsibility. Hence please follows the rules of engagement.

    I urge you to present your case without lies, deceits and without fudging facts or figures. Can you do that? If not, then “Patli Gali Se Nikal Jaa, Yahan Aaapki Daal Nahin Galni”.

    I really find it ridiculous that even with almost every Big B movie flopping you still venture to stick your neck out on such a foolish claim. Do you not see that Big B movies (as well as Lil C’s movies) are a disaster. This year alone we saw, Nisabd and Aag, do we need to drag your icon through putrefied shit before the stench of your misdeed kicks you back into reality ? What “Adhan” will it take for you to step into the straight line for those who see the truth for what it is, and do not live in a world of make belief ?

  357. I still have got no replies to my questions i asked…

    i only asked 2 questions..??

    Were they hard to answer…..

    Please take your time to answer…

  358. Rizwan

    I have tattooed the answers you seek on Big B’s arse. Go seek it for yourself. Take a long walk, don’t rush back immediately. Right now it is celebration time. Tere Baap Ki Film Ki Advance Shooroo Ho Gaayii Hai. Kuch Ookhad Sakta Hai Toh Ookad Leh.. Jah.. Kar Jo Kar Sakta Hai.. Deekha Kitna Dum Hai

  359. Lets look at SRKs so-called hits…

    DDLJ the film where the storyline revolves around the HERIONE.!! lol that is a funny SOLO hit. The Herione has got the bigger role than the hero.

    KKHH – Again KAJOL has the main star, SRK as a hero has to share equal footage with the herione…

    VEER-ZAARA – just read that name again…VEER ZAARA. Herione has got equal role to the hero. ha ha ha

    I cant think of any SOLO hit by SRK. His individual stardom can be seen in these films..

    SWADES, DUPLICATE, BAADSHAH, ASOKA, all flopped!!

    Bottom line is…SRK needs a herione to deliver a HIT….also music and BIG BANNER….

    He has yet to make a HIT film where it says….”IN AND AS”..

    for example..

    Amitabh in and as MARD
    Amitabh in and as COOLIE
    Amitabh in and as SHARABI
    Amitabh in and as KAALIA

    etc..

    How can SRK fans try to compare him to a Living LEGEND.

    boxofficeindia and ibosnetwork has proved that AB is the most sucessfull star EVER. Why the hate and why the denials. Everyone knows that when SRK hits the late40s its all over…he will just be another RISHI KAPOOOR or JEETENDRA at best…

  360. Before someone mentions ChakDeIndia. The main star of the film was the storyline. just look at the opening of the film, it was called a flop when it released. It only picked up with good word of mouth, this is proof enough that the MAIN STAR was the storyline. had it be SRK it would have got a bumper opening….

    Also the film had 16 girls…..Again GIRLS to help him out. lol

    also it was the yash raj banner…

    Without the YASHRAJ BANNER or KARAN JOHAR mr SRK will be out of work..

  361. “Tere Baap Ki Film Ki Advance Shooroo Ho Gaayii Hai. Kuch Ookhad Sakta Hai Toh Ookad Leh.. Jah.. Kar Jo Kar Sakta Hai.. Deekha Kitna Dum Hai”

    LLLLLLLLLLLLLLL…OL Shaan. :D

  362. NEVER HEARD A MORE ACCURATE ANALYSIS OF SRKS CAREER..

    CARRY ON RIZWAN..AMITABH BACHCHAN HAS HAD BIGGER AND BETTER HITS DAN SRK CAN EVEN THINK OF….

    HAVE U GUYS HEARD DAT SRK TOUCHED BIG BS FEET AFTER WATCHING HIS PERFORMANCE IN BLACK??…DOESNT DAT TELL U WHO THE BOSS IS…

    HAVE U EVER HEARD OF BIG B WANTING TO TOUCH SRKS FEET???

  363. Still waiting for my questions to be answered..only asked 2 questions………

    if you guys have forgotten….

    let me remind you….

    Please show me an article by a respected film historian that says that SRK is the biggest EVER star in indian history?? Still waiting……..bigger than BIGB or DILIP KUMAR. it can come from a big director or producer or a film historian.
    still waiting for the answer….

    2nd question…show me an article from indiantelvision.com to show that KBC3 was a hit and not a FLOP….

    Please reply back and dont run and hide….dieing to read your answers….

  364. Gadhe Kahin Ke,

    In dono ki lal gaaaaaaaand shah rukhji se jalti hain.

  365. OOPS, i’ve crossed my limits. Anyways kabhi kabhi aisa karne me koi harj nahin, jab gadhe ziyada bigar jaye. :D

  366. Rizwan, ek shart par tere do kiya, saare ke saare sawaalon ke jawaab doon ga. Aur woh shart yeh hai ke tu apni gaaaaaaaand mujhe aur Shaan ko abhi aur isee waqt dikha, jo is waqt gusse aur frustration se Laaaaaaaaaaaal Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeli ho rahi hai. Bol Manzoor hai Shart. ;)

    Keh de yaar ke manzoor hai. Tera to yeh roz roz ka kaam hai, dikhana aur marwana. :D

  367. Shaan:

    Gadhe (bachalan’s boot-licker) ko kesar-badam (good sense) ka option doge tab bhi woh sookhi ghans ke peeche bhagega…… So, let them enjoy their sookhi ghans. Ignore their muttering. There’s little point in wasting time. Instead let’s rejoice OSO. I’m sure once the OSO numbers are out, those bachalan’s boot-lickers will recall ALL the answers to their own questions…..

  368. “HAVE U EVER HEARD OF BIG B WANTING TO TOUCH SRKS FEET???”

    No Harry Bhari, i have’nt heard this kind of news. But few days later Big Besharam accept this fact publicly that “he sucks Srk’s **** many times so he does’nt need to touch his feet.” Big Besharam further added that ke “main to Srk ji ke Charno main jaga chahta tha, lekin Srk ji ki mehrbani se charano se bhi thoda sa ooper mil gayi, now i’m quite satified.” (CNN-IBN: Sep 15, 2007; 10:50 PM)

    Though there is no need of putting source for this news, but as Razia mentioned sources with his statements, i also did the same.

  369. this rizwan is dheerendre………….

  370. Bachalan’s films are basically meant for cheap and immature mentality people. Perhaps such type of people are largely interested in absurdities.Coolie, Mard, Lawaris, Ram Balram, ,Khoon Pasina, etc, etc. are only meant for people who like cheap entertainment irrespective of their jobs.Amitabh always prefers the demand of public upto the cheapest extent.Remember his song in Lawaris (Mere Angein mein….).These are not worth viewing by even ricksaw pullers because everybody knows that the mentality does not relate with the job of a person.

    Bachalan’s films like Aalap,jurmana etc. flopped because the same angry young man persisted in his face.There is no variation in his characterization in his films.Even during his heydays Rajesh khanna,Sanjiv KUmar, Sahshi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Dharmendra, Mithun, etc. were always cast along with him.Now SRK, Hritikh, Govinda, Akshya KUmar, Sanjay Dutt, etc. are cast along with him,since director did not have confidence in him to deliver a solo hit.

    For the last few years, the awards are distributed to Mr. Bachchan in such a manner which proves that today the awards have lost their significance.Such type of awards have lost their dignity when given to Amitabh, the Godfather of Cheapest Trend era in Film Industry. The same applies for the Doctorate Degree as well. It is very difficult to understand under what circumstances this has happened, but one thing is clear that some fabricated strategy is active under self promotion scheme.There are a number of examples, which show that his fame is manipulated.He is buttering Mulayam Singh and Amar Singh and doing several cheapest ads for earning only money by hook or crook. All the activities and collecting of awards are manipulating and under self-promotion strategy.Why all of his films are declared TAX FREE only in UP? Due to buttering of Mulayam Govt.His films like Banti Babli, Sarkar were also rated as TAX FRee only in UP due to mercy of Mulayam Govt. He is nothing but a big big manipulator.

  371. Yo’re right Koushik….. Bachalan’s ways to please the public and also ways to gain publicity for himself and his son reminds of the stunts Shilpa Shetty kept doing recently to win some publicity. Of course, Shilpa Shetty is ahead of Bachalan there as she at least has her ‘figure’ to help her a bit. :)

  372. Rizwan ….Kindly look at the FEB issue of TIMES magzine to confirm SRKs star status.

  373. well…its really funny.Yashraj banner have given now 3 flops in the year expect ofcourse CDI.

    Its really funny that BIG B being the owner of highest no flops in last five years(More than any other actor inclusding aftab and jayad khan) still some fools trying prove him the superstar.

    If we take the BO clout he is nt even in top 10 at this moment.So what so fuss about he being a star man….None of his movies have opened to more than 30 % collection(Including Black) in last 5 years except ofcourcse Mohabbatein and KKKG.

  374. Even BIG B do not have the coutesy to acknowledge that it was Hritik who made Dhhom 2 successfull.He is so self centered and manipulative.

    If we really count the solo hits BIG B have given then his superstar status seems more a hype than reality.

  375. Still my 2 questions are still unanswered…I thought i will come on the forum and see what the SRK fans have to say…..well the silence has said it all. There is NO ANSWER..and never will be an answer.

    This is a message to koushik, she claims to be some kind of upmarket person who knows cinema inside out, she claims bachchans films were for the uneducated. We dont want to hear your opionions, again another SRK fan comes out with an OPINION, how many times have i said i want to hear FACTS and not OPINIONS.

    Anyway the below are FACTS…NOT opinions!

    1) SRK needs a herione in an equal role to him to deliver a HIT, somtimes the HERIONE will have a BIGGER ROLE. ie DDLJ. I cant think of ANY FILM where he has dominated the film without the herione having equal footage. A SOLO hit is something like COOLIE. herione, music, director, storyline etc dont matter its the HERO the crowd go to see and its becomes a SUPERHIT.

    2) Withouth YASHRAJ and KARAN JOHAR, SRK has got no film career to talk about. 95% of this HIT films are with them. Without them its 95% FLOPS. This is a actually a FACT. The other 5% is his home productions like Main Ho Na etc.

    3) SRK is a COPYCAT. HE copies OTHERS. FACT.

    4) SRK has NEVER won a NATIONAL AWARD. NATIONAL AWARDS are the most prestigious movie awards in INDIA. Filmare, stardust and all other awards are CHEAP and can be bought. To this day SRK has NEVER won a NATIONAL AWARD!! FACT!

    5) HRITIK ROSHAN has given BIGGER HITS than SRK. DHOOM2 and KRISSH. FACT!

    6) Accoring to BOXOFFICENDIA and IBOSNETWORK, AB is the most succesfull movie star in indian history. FACT. according to IBOSNETWORK AB has given 60 major grossers, 2nd is dharmendra with 28, SRK is number 6 with only 16 big grossers. FACT!

    As you can see from the above i only rely on FACTs and NOT opinions

  376. Rizwan: you’ve proved that you truly are an moron. Your ‘facts’ have little to do with reality and all of them prove themselves wrong if debated just a little further. But sorry, i don’t have the time or patience to deal with morons…..

  377. Rizwan

    Still waiting ……

  378. Rizwan ( :) )

    KBC1 reached 25+ TRP. The highest TRP ever on cable and sattelite.

    KBC2 reached 14 it is a massive figure but still short of KBC1

    KBC3 with SRK at its best reached only 9.

    Can you see the difference here????

    Sharing my wisdom with you is like throwing pearls in front of a swine. But, my decency compels me to persevere, what can I say, it hurts me to see you so lost.

    Anyways

    Various versions of the show “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” have been successful in 30+ countries, without the help of Mr. Bachchalan or his ever eroding legacy (it fact if Big B was capable of anything, the majority of his movies would not have been a flop). The format of “Who Wants to be…” is so fool proof that it reminds me of a Korean dish called Bulgogi, a dish whose secret lies in its marination and the prep work done before its cooking. A dish that no matter who cooks, it tastes wonderful. KBC season 1 would have been successful even with “Kaalia” or “Sambha” from Sholay or worse even with Lil C as the host. Nonetheless, when the initial novelty wore off, so did the ratings. KBC season 2 with Big B was an unmitigated disaster (monetary wise). Hence the coward, not so big, limp wristed Big B jumped ship. The bold Lion SRK took a big gamble to take on a show which was bleeding to death. Especially a show which would bring out the daggers once again from the pro Big B camp. KBC 3 was a case of “you do and you are damned and you don’t do and you are damned”, yet the courageous King Khan picked up the gauntlet.

    Remember, Big B did not hold the guest’s hands or looked into their eyes and whispered sweet nothings. Big B did not romance the guest, or hugged their parents or give away watches and cars. Big B did not dance or indulge the audience. The show was never fun when the not so big, Big B, was hosting it. With SRK it is hip and fun and hence it is no wonder that the young crowds (along with the regulars) are hooked. With SRK it is a game show that is entertaining also, but with Big B it was dull and monotonous. The gamble of Star + has paid off, they have now, thanks to our very own Don “Jungli Billa” Khan, the attention of the young and the restless. From an advertisement revenue perspective, it is doing way better than even Season 1. The show as a product is making more money than it ever did. The not so big, Big B could never command such revenues or ever dream of making such revenues. You can say that after milking the novelty of a fool proof show, i.e. KBC, Big B cowardly abandoned it as soon as the ratings started to slip. On the other hand inspite of the rot that had set in thanks to Big B and the fact that the novelty had worn off, inspite of all the negative press, SRK embraced the challenge and resuscitated KBC.

    If you cannot see the true picture vis a vis KBC then the problem lies with you.

  379. Rizwan: I can’t believe you can be sooooo dumb. You made this statement, “SRK has only 1 film in the top 25. DDLJ, this was thanks to kajol who had a bigger role than him in the film.” This is heights of low iq. If you even had a teenager’s brains, you would know who made DDLJ a blockbuster. Of course, it was SRK…….. Kajol was hardly known at that time. Baazigar, in which she acted with SRK was a big hit only due to SRK. Kajol was a nobody and only and only due to SRK she became popular. Everyone knows it. It is like saying that some of Amitabh’s movies became a hit because of Parveen Babi.
    This very logic you’ve used itself proves that there is no point debating with someone like you. You’re a joker man……

    Honestly, i think you should carry on with your debate with all such points only in a sabzi mandi. If you are lucky enough there, at least some ignorants might accept one or two of your points……… Good luck. But please don’t come here later and start debating about potatoes and tomatoes……. :)

  380. Shaan Khan i read your entire post, it was very interesting but you did not prove that KBC3 was a HIT. I have proved that it was a FLOP using sources like indiantelevion.com. All you have said is what you think. My friend i dont really care what you think, i rely on FACTS. Who cares what you think that the show was better with SRK, that is you only. TRP ratings suggest that SHOW plummeted when SRK took over, just look at the TRPs.

    KBC1 – 25 plus rating
    KBC2 – 14 rating
    KBC3 – rating at its peak was 7…it went down further to 4.

    Source: INDIANTELEVISON.COM.

    And mr Varun you said that its like saying amitabhs hit films were hits because of parveen babi. Well that is incorrect.

    If you look at his films which had parveen babi she had only 20min footage in the entire film some films she only had 10mins. She was just there to decorate the film and nothing else. Look at films like KAALIA. She was hardly wanted and it could have been any actress.

    KAJOL in SRKs films always plays a pivotal role, look at DDLJ, the story revolves around HER CHARACTER. SRK is just a guy she meets her on a trip. Even the NAME of the film suggests the HERO and HERIONE at best have equal importance. DDLJ, read the name again. DIWALE DULINIYA LE JAYE GE.

    You can not say this with Amitabhs golden hits. His heriones are just there to decorate the films, for example COOLIE, does it matter who the herione is.??? MARD…does it matter who the herione is??? look at VEER-ZAARA, again ZAARAs character is part of the film name. lol. SRK cannot carry a film on his own he needs the help of his heriones.

  381. Shaan Khan please read the below article by someone at INDIANTELEVISON.COM.

    Contrary to most people’s expectatios, I knew Sharukh could not match up to Amitabh’s charisma in this arena. He brings something special to the table. His baritone voice, his shuddh Hindia, his controlled wit and image of wise uncle was just right for the program. There is noone betterr than Sharukh in the film world to replace AB. But he would surely fall far short. Talking tto much. Hyperactivity. Sharukh as been spoilt by directors who have not taught him control ( Exceptions: Gowarikar in Swades and Ghai in pardes.)

    The latest TAM ratings confirm this ( report in AgencyFAQs):

    “He gave it his best shot, but surely, it’s not an easy task to get into BIG B’s boots. ‘KBC 3’, hosted by Shah Rukh Khan, could not match the viewership ratings of Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’.

    In comparison to Kaun Banega Crorepati Dwitiya’s opening figures of 19.75, Shah Rukh’s KBC could only garner a TVR of 12.33 on January 22 (Monday), when the show first hit the screen (C&S, 4+, HSM).

    But unfortunately for STAR India and King Khan, even this figure could not be sustained and subsequent episodes witnessed a noticeable decline. On January 23, the TVRs went down to 10.44, only to further decrease to 7.36 on January 24.

    However, on January 25 (Thursday), the show saw slight increase in viewership, garnering a TVR of 9.24.

    In the three metros – Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata – the viewership figures were even poorer. In these cities on the first day, the show garnered a viewership rating of 11.26, but declined in the next two episodes. It got a TVR of 9.1 on January 23, and 6.03 on January 24.

    In Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata, the opening figures of Bachchan’s ‘KBC 2’ had been 18.52.”

    AGAIN PROOF THAT KBC WENT DOWN IN POPULARITY WHEN SRK TOOK OVER.

    how many times will i have to prove this…?????

  382. Rizwan

    Neither do I care about what you think, especially considering we know who you are. Nonetheless you have to show how Big B can get the credit for KBC when no version of that show has flopped ? On the hand hand you have to show how one cannot deny credit to SRK when he turned the tide against all odds.

  383. More evidence that KBC3 was a FLOP.

    KBC-3 ratings on downward spiralThe decline in viewership is definitely not a good news for Star Plus as Advertisers are clamouring for a cut in advertising rates.

    Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan’s charm doesn’t seem to be workin g on the small screen. The show hosted by Khan on general entertainment channel Star Plus, Kaun Banega Crorepati 3 (KBC3), continued to register a decline in its viewership for the third consecutive week. Television rating points (TRP) for the third week came out last week. The show began with a TRP of 8.41 and then declined to 7.56 and finally on February 15, it closed at 8.67.
    The average TRP for the opening week was 9.85, which fell to 9.05 in the second week. The average TRP for the third week wass 8.33. Media professionals have pegged the anticipated TRP ratings of the show between 8 and 10, which places the third week’s number on the lower side of expectations. The decline in viewership is definitely not a good news for the channel, which has been under pressure ever since the programme was launched on 22 January. Advertisers had already started clamouring for a cut in advertising rates for the show.

  384. Riwvan

    We need financial proof not some planted article. LOL

  385. kbc 3 was all time blocbuster

  386. this rizwan has some mental problem.we can only laugh by reading his comments.its good that an idiot like rizwan is present in between sensible peoples like us………..

  387. adab

    amair bhai

    how r you

  388. Rizwan: Give us some more proofs.

  389. hi kamran.r u there……..

  390. Kamran Azam if i think your mother is an all-time prostitute but can not prove it, then i should remain quiet. Something which we CANNOT prove its best to remain quiet.

    No point making wild claims.

  391. More proof from IBNLIVE that KBC3 when down after the first week. The figures are well SHORT of KBC2.

    http://www.ibnlive.com/news/srk-behind-dip-in-kbc-viewership/32694-8.html

  392. Its funny how SRK is projected as some kind of KING-KHAN. In reality the real KING-KHAN is AAMIR KHAN. Everyone that knows about cinema and acting knows this. Aamir khan does not use the media to hype himself.

    In terms of acting and stature in the film-industry AAMIR is far ahead of srk.

    Forget comparting SRK to AMITABH, he is not even the best in his generation, Aamir Khan is miles ahead.

  393. That’s great Rizwan. But we want some more proofs. Keep on continuing.

  394. Rizwan: Aamir and King Khan??? Must be joking.
    Here’s what i’ve said earlier in one of my postings here that’s worth repeating for your nit-wit’s sake……. That’s the perception Aamir has created among his audience over time (perception of being choosy and also of a perfectionist)….. Where as the truth is that he’s really scared to try new variations for whatever reasons and picks only those that carry least amount of risk at BO. To cover that weakness up, he labels himself as choosy.
    Now as he’s not a really good actor, he needs many retakes to get a shot right. He’s trying to cover that weakness up by saying that he’s a perfectionist and hence needs many retakes. Over the years, he’s taken so many retakes for his shots that he’s now trained much better and hence become better as an actor. Point is, if one gives a good shot after so many retakes, even someone like John abraham or Abhi Bachchan can give a perfect shot…… Most people are innocent enough to get fooled by Aamir’s words.

  395. Btw, way we didn’t know that you lick multiple boots. First it was Amitabh and now Aamir. Who knows, after a few days, may be mine (i’ve got a really soiled one in my attic)………

  396. hey folks this is MOHAMMAD here,,,honestly speakin amitabh b used to be my favourite actor however at present he is the one i hate most
    not bz of his acting but bez of the jealousy he is apparently boarding for srk,,,just bz he could not bear the success of kbc and don big b didn invite personality lik srk on his son”s wedding
    does show any solidarity GUYS as far as film fraternity is concerned,,big b cannnot digest the success of srk on the contrary its always srk who never stops praising about big b,,he has throwed so many parties for honouring big b,,srk ki hospitality is becoming legendary,,,,more recently at diwali funtion big b along with his whole family left the funtion as soon as srk n om shanti om crew entered the party but srk walked down the stage and candidly greeted big b to which big b showed cold shoulder by reluctantly shanking hands with srk,,folks i have hundred points to prove srks modesty and also that is he is real PETRIFIED lion of bollywood WHIMPS LIKE BIG B STINK IN BOLLYWOOD;;;;
    ITS HISTORY THAT SRK IS THE ONLY SUPERSTAR WHO HAS MAXIMUM NUMBER OF SOLO BLOCKBUSTERS I THINK SHAAN,MUSTAFA N OTHERS HAVE ALREADY PROVED THIS POINT HUNDRED TIMES;;ABOUT BIG B ITS THE SAME DARK OLD HISTORY I FELL PITY FOR DIS BUDDA HOWEVER BIG B HAS ENTERED INTO RECORD BOOKS BY ACTING IN WORST FILM OF ALL TIMES RGV KI AGG,,
    A BIG SLAP FOR BIG B LOVERS AND SRK HATERS ,,BIG B BOUJPURI HIT REMAKE GONGOTRI HAS NO TAKERS IN NOV DUE TO OM SHANTI OM STORM,,,I M SURE BIG B LOVERS W2ILL BE COMPLETLY DERAILED AFTER HEARING THIS,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    ONE MORE FACT SRK HAS NEVER PESTERED OR BEGGED ANY BIG BANNER PRODUCTION TO GET A DISTINGUISHED ROLE IN THEIR FILM HOWEVER BIG B REQUESTED YASH CHOPARA TO GET THE ROLE HE PLAYED IN MOHABBATIEN,,,THAT WAS WHEN AB CORP WENT BNKRUPT AND BIG B”S CARER HAD REACHED ROCK BOTTOM THANKS TO 11 CONSECUTIV FLOPS HE GAVE,,,,,,,
    CHAKDE INDIA IS HISTORY OF BOLLYWOOD NOW WAT A GREAT MOVIE ONE MORE SLAP ON BIG B ,,,,,,,,,
    THE MORAL OF THE STORY SRK IS THE KING OF BOLLYWOOD AND BIG B ONE ORDINARY SOLDIER IN HIS KINGDOM

  397. Rizwan: You’re going from one man to another…. First it was Amitabh, then Aamir and now Hrithik….. What do you want us to presume? Are you a —? Or worse case, don’t show us your aptitude by telling us next that Amitabh=Aamir=Hrithik. Going by your logic, i’m sure you’re say that next…… Before you become irrepairable, join Hari Bhari’s new abode.. oops asylum asap……

  398. NO im not going from one actor to another, just stating my point that there are current stars who are BETTER than your monkeylooking srk.

    Im not a fan of Hrithik Roshan but all boxoffice reports for this DECADE state that he has delivered the BIGGEST HITS.

    I think SRK needs to be the best of his generation before he can be compared to legends like Amitabh.

    Everyone who knows about cinema knows that the true KING-KHAN is AAMIR KHAN. He does not pay the media to talk about him and does not care about publicity. Boxoffice shows that AAMIR KHKAN is ahead of SRK for this decade.

  399. big b is 65 years old now.dont compare shah rukh with big b.big b is the best ever actor as well as superstar.shah rukh is not even a better actor than aamir khan.aamir khan recently said that big b is the best actor ever.his dialogue delivery,his screen presence and his sense of timing are the best ever.big b does not need songs give a hit.shah rukh khan without hit songs in the movie is nothing.he can never do the kind of acting bigb has done in black.big b is also versatile.shah rukh is doing all this because he knows that it does him no harm being compared to amitabh bachhan.before all this shah rukh himself was saying that bigb is the best ever actor.shah rukh should first act in some serious movies and then start thinking abt even being compared to one of big b’s qualities.

  400. Biswapal, the bahuroopiya (whoever you are): Arrey jaa, teri yahaan dal nahin galne wali. Go to some ‘jhoot bolo’ forum and cry there. We’re celebrating OSO here…… We don’t have time for your faltugiri……

  401. RIZWAN:SRK needs a herione in an equal role to him to deliver a HIT. A SOLO hit is something like COOLIE. herione, music, director, storyline etc dont matter its the HERO the crowd go to see and its becomes a SUPERHIT.

    EXPLANATION:A heroine is needed for a love story.Well, for bachalan it may not be true.He does not know what romance means.

    The reason, this trash of a Coolie film was a hit, is the accident, which happened on the sets of COOLIE.SYMPATHY works in strange ways I guess.FACT.

    RIZWAN:Withouth YASHRAJ and KARAN JOHAR, SRK has got no film career to talk about. 95% of this HIT films are with them.

    EXPLANATION:Our friends have talked at length regarding this.It is SRK who made KJO,ADI and FARHA whereas Bachalan was made by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Prakash Mehra, Manmohan Desai, Yash Chopra and Ramesh Sippy.FACT.

    RIZWAN:SRK is a COPYCAT. HE copies OTHERS. FACT.

    EXPLANATION:It is Bachalan is a copycat.He copied Danjel washington in ajnabee,Marlon brando in sarkar and amjad khan in RGV ki aag.FACT.

    RIZWAN:SRK has NEVER won a NATIONAL AWARD. NATIONAL AWARDS are the most prestigious movie awards in INDIA. Filmare, stardust and all other awards are CHEAP and can be bought. To this day SRK has NEVER won a NATIONAL AWARD!! FACT!

    EXPLANATION:SRK won “Padmashri” which is a national award and it is a fact that he won this for his contribution to indian cinema.FACT.

    RIZWAN:HRITIK ROSHAN has given BIGGER HITS than SRK. DHOOM2 and KRISSH. FACT!

    EXPLANATION:SRK has bigger hits than dhoom2,krish in DDLJ,KKHH,CDI and now OSO.Fact.

    RIZWAN:Accoring to BOXOFFICENDIA and IBOSNETWORK, AB is the most succesfull movie star in indian history. FACT. according to IBOSNETWORK AB has given 60 major grossers, 2nd is dharmendra with 28, SRK is number 6 with only 16 big grossers. FACT!

    EXPLANATION:IBOSENETWORK is biased.BOXOFFICENDIA says AB is 15 times there in top three from 1975-1991, SRK is there in top three 13 times from 1994-2007.SRK has 7-8 years to go…still.So SRK will overtake AB..no doubts.

    AB’s success ratio is 53% as gainst srk’s 66%.evidence is at this post.FACT

  402. administration should take notice of rizwan comment that he had made on my mother on nov7

    if he can make that kind of comment so why icant

    plz take notice

    kbc is alltime blocbuster

    no channel had that much of population

    to watch a single kbc show

    which srk had

    it was a record breaking show

    blocbuster

    in srk kbc srk he had added 26 million connection of star plus for a single show

    no rizwan should understand which one is blocbuster and which one is a dull show
    srk rulz in all field

  403. Kamran Thnx for bring this issue – It was out of my notice , I dint find whch comment can u please help me in find that comment

    Its sad that All Educated ppl discuss everythng except movies – as this is stircly for movies

  404. Rizawan and biswarup or whoever is the bacchan fan…. there are umpteen no opf statistics to prove that who is the hreatest between SRK and BIG B.

    Well both are great at their prime.

    But the point is SRK rocks at this moment and BIG B sucks.

    BiG B is the most irritating factor whenever he comess to screen (Big or small)

    His movies barely open more than 30 pct.So the old man and his followers should take a break

  405. inn this blog there are two to three duplicates

    they always change there name and pass a comment on srk

    they change their name because they didnt fint any person who can support them on this issue that srk is king of bollywood

    as an actor + superstar

    they are jelous of srk

  407. Om Shanti Om is the biggest opener of this century. Om Shanti Om is also the biggest opener for a Hindi cinema crossing KANK in Overseas. It has income 1.52 crores in USA & about 92 lakhs in its opening day. I think it will cross Dhoom2. Because it has about 2000 prints worldwide (about 1300 in India & other 700 in overseas), in the while Dhoom2 was relesed with 800 prints worldwide. So i Think OM Shanti OM’s first week neet collection will be about 70 crores. (52 Crores in India & about 18 crores in overseas)

    In the Saawariya’s first week neet collection will be about 23 crore (20 Crores in India & about 03 crores in overseas).

    I think OSO will cross Dhoom 2 & DDLJ in neet collection in near future & Saawariya will be a average hit.

  408. very poor comparison between two.
    amitbh’s bunty aur babli,chheni kum, kantee, are not super hits freinds.
    amitabh’s hit list is also verylong.
    Shahrukh khan has only 3 sutright superhits.
    dil tu pagal hai,kabhi khushi kabhi gam,veer-zara.

    there are lot of mistakes is the comparison.
    but,i have not much time to point out them.

  409. Comparison of Categories:
    1. Romance Role: No Blockbuster Solo from Amitabh except Black to some extent which was not 2. Blockbuster, Lots of Solo Blockbusters Hits from Shahrukh so much so that this role becomes his image.
    2. Villaneous Role: Amitabh has done very few roles and did disaster when doing Gabbar Role, SRK performed the best in Darr and Anjam and got Filmfare Best Villan Award
    3. Gangster/Fighting Role: Both have done good acting in this category. The list of Amitabh is big for this category while for SRK we have Ram-Jane, Josh and Don
    4. Patriotic Roles: Amitabh has done some good roles, SRK did ultimate acting in Swades and Chak De
    5. Remake Roles: Amitabh has only done one remake(of Sholay) and did very bad acting as compared to Gabbar. SRK has done two remakes. One is Devdas and other is Don. Both were big hits. Devdas was the biggest hit of the year while Don was the fourth biggest hit of the year.
    6. Comedy Roles: Both Amitabh and SRK have done these kind of roles but have not reached to ultimate acting status.

  410. Koushik i read your message and have realised that you have lied in some of the points. Thats very cheap actually, it was an intentional lie to fool the readers in thinking what you wrote is true.

    You mentioned boxofficeindia that AB is in the top3 15 times. and SRK is in the top3 13times.

    Well that is totally wrong…

    AB was the TOPSTAR from 1975-1991. Thats 17 years. 17 years as the TOP STAR with no challenge from any other star. 17 years as the undisputed No1!!

    why talk about being in the top3….who cares who is 2nd or 3rd.

    please post facts, i hate people that LIE to suit their arguments.
    check the below site. SRK has been no1 for 8 years. But those 8 years are not constant, 8 years here and there from 1993-2007. Other years he is not even in the top3.

    AB was just no1 from 1975-1991 plain and simple 17 YEARS. thats a record in the indian film history. no star has ever acheived this.

    http://boxofficeindia.com/topactors.htm

  411. While comparing categories
    1. Romance Role: SRK proved himself as better actor than Amitabh
    2. Villaneous Role: SRK proved himself as better actor than Amitabh
    3. Gangster/Fighting Role: Amitabh proved himself as better actor than SRK
    4. Patriotic Roles: SRK proved himself as better actor than Amitabh
    5. Remake Roles: SRK proved himself as better actor than Amitabh
    6. Comedy Roles: Nobody has ever done ultimate acting which people liked very much.

    Let me share you the movies of Amitabh. After Sholay in 1975, people started knowing Amitabh as someone who can shine in years to come as good actor and in 1976 the movies of Amitabh were Do Anjane, Balika Badhu, Adalat, Kabhi Kabhi, Hera Pheri. None of them were good. In 1977, however he did Amar Akbar Anthony and 1n 1978 he did Don, Trishul and Muqadar ka Sikandar, others were not up to the mark. These two years 1977 and 1978 were good for Amitabh and people started thinking him in the list of good actors but not as Undisputed No 1. Then he gave Lawaris and Kaalia in 1980 and 1981 which were little good but those were not at all making him undisputed No 1. This was clearly shown next year when Amitabh appeared with Dilip Kumar in Shakti in 1982 and proved that he was never Undisputed No 1 in front of Dilip Kumar. From 1983 to 1986 he gave good movies. In 1987 he did not do any movie and in 1988 he had Shehenshah. So 1983 to 1988 was the era of Amitabh being on top or in the list of top 3. Although Amitabh gave good movies but with the start of 1988 Anil Kapoor was considered on top with the movies like Tezaab(1988), Vijay(1988), Ram Lakhan(1989), Lamhe(1991) and Beta(1992). There were other good movies from Anil Kapoor but as Amitabh is the part of discussion so coming on to him, Amitabh is a great Actor but saying that from 1975 to 1991 he was Undisputed No 1 is a Big White Lie. From 1991 to 1998 Amitabh gave many movies like Hello Brother (1999), Kohram (1999), Hindustan Ki Kasam (1999), Sooryavansham (1999), Lal Baadshah (1999), Bade Miyan Chote Miyan (1998), Major Saab (1998), Mrityudaata (1997), Tere Mere Sapne (1996), Insaniyat (1994), Akka (1994), Khuda Gawah (1992), Zulm Ki Hukumat (1992), Akayla (1991), Indrajeet (1991), Ajooba (1991), Hum (1991), Sadhu Sant (1991). Hum was good movie but same year Anil Kapoor’s acting in Lamhe was considered better than his performance by critics and in all these years people lost faith in Amitabh even those people who are now say that he is big. The bright era of Amitabh started again from the movie Mohabatein and Kabhi Khusi Kabhi Gham and KBC. Although Amitabh is a good actor but now he seems to go for quantity rather than quality work. His list of films from year 2000 is almost 50 or more. I must say the people who likes Amitabh acting, please go and watch all the movies of Amitabh in theatre, for example in year 2007 he did almost 8 to 10 movies, so that he can get credit for it. Saying it that Amitabh is better actor and not seeing it on theatre again and again if you like it, it is very bad. If you say he is good why do you make all his movie flop so much so that in year 2005 out of 5 movies, 4 were flop except Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna which is SRK starer, 20% success ratio which is also due to SEK. and in 2006 out of 8 movies except Shoot Out at Lokhandwala all were flops. Only 10% success ratio and this success is not due to Amitabh. I wish him success in all his future movies.

  412. Ahmad i started reading your message and when i read that KABHI KABHIE is not a good film.
    I stopped reading your message.

    KABHI KABHIE is one of the greatest classics in indian movie history.

    Still i thought lets read a few more lines….Then you wrote that in 1980 he was still NOT the undisputed No1. I stopped reading any further.

    Your message is NOT worthy to be read!!!

    What UTTER RUBBISH!!! Sorry i just cannot read further and waste my time reading rubbish!

    Just for your information, AB was on the cover of indiatoday magazine in 1980. It was titled “ONE-MAN INDUSTRY”.

    No point even debating with you.

  413. Rizwan/satyam,

    It is you who is lying…not me.

    Here is the link for the readers to see.

    http://boxofficeindia.com/topactors.htm

    Bachalan was never no.1 in 1975,it was Dharampaji who was there at the top in 1975.

    And The point is bachalan was lucky to have support of other stars in his hits most of which were multistarrer masala films and was also pampered by media…whereas srk did not have such luck.

  414. pampered by media????

    He banned the media from 1975-1990.

    SRK is media made, he needs the media..

    Koushik i think you need to learn the facts of bollywood before you post.

    AB boycotted the filmi media during his megastardom! This is a fact…

    He achieved everything without the media..whereas SRK needs the media…

    Can you imagine SRK without the media?? Just think about it…

    It will be SRK who??

  415. I think to be the biggest star for 16 years in a row. You need more than luck. dont you think koushik??

  416. Rizwan bhai: Kabhi Kabhi was a classic mainly coz of music and Yash Chopra’s take on romance. It was one of the films that started the trend of romantic movies due to Yash Chopra. Also it was a multi-starrer.

    For Ahmad’s message you said – “Your message is NOT worthy to be read!!! What UTTER RUBBISH!!! Sorry i just cannot read further and waste my time reading rubbish!”
    Same way, we feel your message is utter rubbish and nonsense. We laso cannot waste time replying to your nonsense. You are just a jealous person coz of SRK’s success. That is all.

  417. King Khan is always King. He is King of Bollywood and will be King in future also. There is no comparision between Big B and SRK King of Bollywood.
    King Khan have broke the record of Big B’s SHOLEY by DDLJ.
    King Khan has beated the world No.1 Supper Strar TOM CROOSE by OM SHANTI OM Today. What has Big B do/did ?

  418. Rizwan/satyam,

    I think you need to learn the facts of bollywood first.I have posted these earlier also.

    Amitabh did ban one particular magazine called “stardust” for gossip columns,not the entire press.

    During emergency in 1975 Amitabh was reigning supreme with the Prime Minister of the country Indira Gandhi and her sons being his family friends, Bachchan is said to have used his powerful connections to try and close down ‘Stardust’.Censors got harsh on ‘Stardust’. There was a strong censorship imposed on Stardust which affected the magazine badly.

    It was in 1982. Amitabh met with an accident in the film Coolie, was juggling between life and death, when ‘Stardust’ made the first peace offering by writing an item on him and mentioning his name.

    1989. Amitabh’s Bofors scandal was making headlines. His films were flopping. The star felt totally cut off from the people. It was only then that he approached ‘Stardust’ begging to write about him.

  419. Rizwan G, Can u please tell that How many first day show of Amitabh’s movies have you seen out of his total releases of 8 to 10 this year (2007). Leave that tell me that how many first week shows have u seen this year in theatre.
    Good Acting is not absolute term. Acting is good when fans as well as critics think that one has done good acting and people come to watch the movies again and again.
    If you think Amitabh is great actor, please go and watch his movies in theatre. Atleast this much credit the great actor deserves from his fans.

  420. King Khan is always King. He is King of Bollywood and will be King in future also. There is no comparision between Big B and SRK King of Bollywood.
    King Khan have broke the record of Big B’s SHOLEY by DDLJ.
    King Khan has beated the world No.1 Supper Strar TOM CROOSE by OM SHANTI OM Today. What has Big B do/did ?

    and infact there was no media no dvd no cdies no cable
    in 1992 these all things came in 1998 when srk was already a supersrar+actor

    and if srk is man media then why amitab is not

    because people like srk and his acting

    he is the best actor ihad seen in my life

    ihad also watch amitab movies but i didnt like his movies and actin i only like srk movies and his acting

    srk is the true king of bollywood

    he he he he

  421. Big Bachalan’s latest outing, RGV ki Aag, was supposed to be a master piece and look where it ended. – in the dustbins!! All that publicity behind RGV ki Aag was only an eye wash as public dumped it outright…. And see how OSO shines for the masses. They given it the biggest opening week of this decade (or is it of all time?) at the BO……. Way to go King Khan……

  422. Amitabh BAchchan is real star.. srk is jus rubbish actor.. as far as OSO is concerned checkout the publicity he made and number of copies released compared to it its utter flop.. even though it earned some money but earning per copy is flop….

  423. Net BO impact of AB is RS..34,45,60,40,015 Next to him is Dharampaji with RS.21,99,15,97,773 whre is srk?/ he is at 5th rank with jus RS10,14,32,41,823 BO impact..still far behind “The Legend BIG B”

  424. Sandy, the behroopiya, is back again with a li’l towel to wipe Big Bachalan’s old, fat ass….. Any volunteers??

    This is enough to see what AB is.. There is not even a single year in srk carrier in which he grossed more than 125 Cr

  426. Except OSO, there was not even a single movie before D2 who earned more than 85 Cr. How people make these figures for Amitabh, I dont know. And people if try to adjust inflation, it is not simple to say that 1 Cr is now this much Crores. When we are trying to adjust inflation we just say the value of money is increased or decreased to this much this is not like that. There are other factors like environment, buying power, per capita income, GDP etc.

    Yes in 1975 the BO of Amitabh was good due to Sholay But the BO impact of this movie was due to Dharampaji more and the movie was not with solo lead so Amitabh cannot take all impact. The actual figures of Sholay was Rs. 30,15,00,000 only which was beaten by DDLJ only. In this regard when we say that movie has collected 30 Cr this means the collections until now and people try to put Inflation formula on today’s collection as well Or 5 to 10 years back collection. In 1978 Amitabh had Don, Muqadar Ka Sikander and Trishul. This year was best in Amitabh Filmi career. But the above mentioned figures are too much inflated not keeping in mind the other factors related to inflation.

    These are the highest grosser Indian Bollywood movies till now and there is no inflation, no other things are mixed to make list biased. Out of these 26 movies, 11 movies are of Shah Rukh, 4 are of Hrithik, 3 are of Aamir and others. Oh! I forgot to mention about OSO who has beaten all the previous records of first week and beating the second week of all the records of all times of Indian Bollywood movies and will be reaching to 5th place in just two weeks flat and then lets see how it goes after second week. Thus 12th movie of Shah Rukh coming in top 27 grossers of all time in Bollywood. I am a big fan of both Amitabh and Shah Rukh and I pray for Amitabh to atleast give one Solo All Time Blockbuster movie in his life time as Shah Rukh has already give two Solo All time Blockbusters.

  427. Ahmad: Great job of culling out the details…… This should hopefully cure at least some of those hogwash-ers. Few of them anyway can’t be cured with anything. They’re like that saying ‘kutte ki duumm taedhi ki taedhi’. So there’s no point enlightening them with such facts……

  428. There is no sense when comparing different era movies without adjusting inflation.. well on other hand u can compare percentage earning that can give much more closer view..
    Sholay 30.15 Crore and budget is 2 Crores that is 1507%
    DDLJ 50 Cr and budget is 4 Cr thats 1250%

    ThaT SHOWS STILL SHOLAY HOLD THE RECORD..
    tODAY EVEN THOUGH MOVIE EARN MORE IN CRORES THE BUDGET OF THE FILM IS ALSO EQUALLY HIGH..

  429. We cannot compare the percentage earnings based on budget. Firstly those earnings count which goes back to financer/producer. If one cinema theatre now wants to have a show of some old movie without giving profits to producer, it does not count. Secondly the budget of 2 Cr was in 1975 for Sholay and for 4 Cr in 1995 for DDLJ But earnings till today are counted. so there is no comparison of 1975 2 Cr Vs 1995 4 Cr. Definitely 1975 2Cr were far more than 4Cr in 1995. Thirdly Sholay is still shown in theatres now as well as DDLJ, the earnings can never be used in getting percentage earnings using 2Cr of 1975 obviously. However we can judge or rely on the movie in its initial period. For example Sholay after having made for 2Cr was not able to collect 2Cr in five or six weeks or even eight weeks. This initial period is relied as the most money of the initial period goes to producer and counted as earnings. Another example of OSO is that after having made for 35Cr collected 41 Cr from its first week.

  430. The biggest HIT of all-time is SHOLAY. Every indian film historian will tell you this, It is a known FACT that SHOLAY IS THE BIGGEST BLOCKBUSTER TO DATE… No film can compete with it..

    All-time adjusted figures show it is like a film making over 200crores today, thats how BIG that film was. in 20 years time the figures will be adjusted again it will show the figure to be over 500crores..

    Coming to SOLO hits…SRK has never truely given a SOLO hit….all his films have him where the herione is bigger than him. Just look at DDLJ, kajol had a bigger role, the storyline was based around her character. SRK just the guy she met….

    Please just accept facts….AB is the biggest star ever….

    You can put all the khans on 1 side…(SRK, AAMIR, SALMAN, SAIF) combine their stardom together they will still fail to match the STARDOM Amitabh enjoyed in the late70s and early80s.

    He was called a ONE-MAN-INDUSTRY…No actor before him or after him has been called a ONE-MAN-INDUSTRY.

  431. I think SRK fans are just living in a false world thinking he is the biggest star ever, there have been stars who have enjoyed bigger stardom than him before in india…

    Dilip Kumar, Rajesh khanna, Amitabh Bachchan just to mention 3.

    I bet people here would not know that Rajesh Khanna was a bigger superstar in his heydays than SRK is now……This is actually a FACT.

    He was only at the top for 5 years but became a phenomenon only to be surpassed by Amitabh from the mid70s onwards…

    No actors after these 2 have seen that kind of superstardom ever again in india…

    I think people that are calling SRK big dont know what happened in the past…

  432. If someone asks me to mention the 5 BIGGEST STARS india has ever seen….EVER SEEN. not today….but of all-time in india…..

    SRk will not make the top 5 in my list….

    The biggest stars would read like this…

    1) Amitabh
    2) Rajnikanth (tamil actor)
    3) Rajesh Khanna
    4) Dilip Kumar
    5) Raj Kapoor

    Some people will say rajnikanth??? His stardom is such that SRK can only dream of having a fan-following like his.

  433. SRK acting in the movie OSO is liked by the people so much that it has become all time blockbuster in USA in first week and after second it will be declared All Time Blockbuster in UK too (Source: http://www.boxofficeindia.com ! Overseas Update-20th November 13.00 IST). In India it reached the status of Semi Hit to Hit in first week. No movie in Indian History got so much success. By sensational acting nobody has proven the versatility in indian history other than Dilip Kumar. The last five movies of SRK are
    Paheli – Art movie type role,
    KANK – Negative role of husband,
    DON – Ganster Type Role,
    CDI – Patriotic Role,
    OSO – Fun / Entertainment type role
    Other than that SRK has a image in Romance type roles (No need to give examples) as well as Villaneous Role like Baazigar, Dar, Anjam.

    I like Amitabh too and also watched Sholay. In Sholay the main lead Dharampaji was sensational and the role of his love with Hima Malini was good too. Although Amitabh did not get equivalant second lead role and but a little less role which ends a little early and his love also did not get much time in the movie too. However the second lead Amitabh was good too and was able to mange his quiet behaviour in just a good way.But The movie was also remembered due to Gabbar and his acting was sensational. By the way at the time movie was released the appreciation of success went to Dharampaji. It is after some years when Amitabh became popular people started saying that Sholay was his movie too. However I must say that in RGV ke Sholay Amitabh has done disaster. I must say now that I cannot watch 8 to 10 movies of Amitabh in theatre per year and I cannot see Amitabh 8 to 10 movies at home per year but I definitely see 2 movies of SRK per year in theatre and then bring these movies to watch again at home. I watched OSO at theatre twice.

    Well at the end I must pray that Amitabh should atleast give one solo All time blockbuster in his Life time like Dilip Kumar did, like Aamir Khan did, like SRK did twice.

  434. Ahmad…

    AB is a national icon in india. I think you will only accept this fact when he dies… you will see millions of people on the streets in mumbai when he dies, can you imagine the media frenzy….I think it will one of the biggest funerals in india history. Sometimes when someone has GONE thats when they are more admired and respected…

    Please do not belittle him by comparing him to any current star…

    AB is a legend. period!

  435. I dont need to find who is the better. Ofcourse AB, remember paheli 15 min role of AB was remarkable in the movie not the 2 hrs role by SRK, but yes SRK has a good box office record

  436. I must say it again Good Acting is not absolute term. Acting is good when fans as well as critics think that one has done good acting and people come to watch the movies again and again.
    If you think Amitabh is great actor, please go and watch his movies in theatre. Atleast this much credit the great actor deserves from his fans. Reply to yourselves that how many movies of Amitabh have you seen in theatre and dont count yesteryear movies if you cant I want to make it easy for you by just telling me the last year and this year movies out of 15 in total for 2006 and 2007.

    I watched all 5 SRK movies in theatre in last two years. If you ask I can tell you about all his yesteryears movies too.

    And I also want Amitabh ji alive with all of my hearts to create future gems and dont wish him to die just to see what big crowd comes on his death. I am a big fan of Amitabh too and I must pray him that success which SRK has today in terms of Box office record and in terms of acting and I must pray that atleast Amitabh should give one solo All Time Blockbuster as Dilip Kumar did it, Aamir did it and SRK did it twice.

  437. The problem is that people believe that SRK is better in terms of box office record. The shows, parties and getherings where all these stars come, people proves that people like SRK more this proving better Star power and while comparing acting

    1. Romance Role: SRK proved himself as better actor than Amitabh
    2. Villaneous Role: SRK proved himself as better actor than Amitabh
    3. Gangster/Fighting Role: Amitabh proved himself as better actor than SRK
    4. Patriotic Roles: SRK proved himself as better actor than Amitabh
    5. Remake Roles: SRK proved himself as better actor than Amitabh
    6. Comedy Roles: Nobody has ever done ultimate acting which people liked very much.
    7. Entertainment / Fun Roles: SRK proves better than Amitabh
    8. Angry Man role: Amitabh proves himself as better actir than SRK.

  438. If you talk about Box Office Comparison as the topic of discussion here, never in the history of Bollywood it happened that Distribution Company purchased the movie for more than double the cost of the movie. It happened for SRK movie OSO when it was made for 35 Cr and Distribution Company Eros International purchased it for 75 Cr making it already a Blockbuster before its release. This is the Star Power or Box Office Power which SRK has. Then comes critics, critics have rated this movie so high that everybody is asking for it to have a watch. This is Blockbuster in terms of his acting. Another big thing is people. People liked his acting so much that people are coming again and again to watch the movie, even I watched it twice in threatre, and OSO broke all records of all times. thus making it a blockbuster in terms of BO in only one week. No movie got this much acclaim in terms of BO Impact, in terms of SRK Star Power and in terms of SRK acting.

  439. After reading this, I think the author does not have a good knowledge about how to rate a star.I have earlier read about her analysis on why aamir khan is not a supestar.I think Aamir khan is not a superstar.

    But I am not impessed by her analyses on amitabh bachan vs shah rukh khan.
    we have to judge a star only after he becomes a star.
    Amitabh has never become a star to reckon with until zanjeer.And shah rukh khan has never become star to reckon with until darr was released.
    We should judge amitabh from zanjeer and shah ruh khan from Darr.

    Moreover amitabh should be judged only till 1991 until he retired temporarily.
    and not till today where his films are flopping and he is not doing lead roles.

    If we count amitabh bachan from zanjeer-(1973)to khuda gawa -(1991)
    And shah rukh khan fom Darr -(1993) to don (2006) we all know who the winner is.
    Amitabh wins by a huge margin against shah rukh khan.Amitabh has a 85 percent success rate.
    In this period there were flops like silsila,jaadugar,toofan,ganga jamuna saraswati but he superior than shah rulh khan.

    Some incomsistencies.
    Satte pe satta is a hit.
    Nastik is a hit.
    namak halal is a hit.
    Khuda gawa is a hit.

    Amitabh may be a conservative person,who may not be a good person in real life but that what is discussed here.He still is superior than shah rulh khan.

    Sakman khan and aamir khan should be counted from their first films because they became famous then.

  440. Sameera Singh – I dont thnk Big B was Fabulous in Paheli -

    Ahmed Interesting Comparisions – I thnk As Angry Man Role – Srk is more intense than Big B – Check out his intials movies like anjam n Others

  441. well Gtkjr,or whoever you are.

    why shouldnt we take amitabhs post 91 movie in to consideratioon.This is not done.

    Fyi Amitabh has not given a solo hit after 1984.Correct me if i am wrong.There is no denying the fact about amitabh s dominace from 73 to 84.We all agree with it.But here too his all thopse hit movie consist of people like vinod khanna,Sahatrughan Sinha,Sashi kapoor,Rishi kapoor,Dharmendra etc.

    If we calculate solo hits amitabh is way behind.And thats a bitter truth to accept.

    Where as SRK have given more solo hits than Amitabh.SRK has given more Bockbusters than Amitabh.

    In todays time when the public is so unforgiving ,maintaining such a consisstency in giving hits is a tremandous achievement for SRK.

    We all love Amitabh.We believe that he was the second superstar after rajesh khanna and he dominated from 73 to 84.

    But at this moment SRK rules.and we should accept this fact also

  442. To the people who dont know that Amitabh did not retire temporarily in 1991 as he gave movies Zulm Ke Hakomat(1992), Khuda Gawah (1992), Akka(1994) special appearance, Insaniyat(1994), Tere Mere Sapne(1996) Narrator, Mirtyudata (1997), Major Sahab(1998), Bade Miyan Chote Mian(1998), Lal Badshah(1999), Sooryavansham(1999), Hindustan ke Kasam(1999), Kohram(1999), Hello Brother(1999). In all these period Amitabh Star power was not that much high until he appeared in Mohabatein and got fame. This made him rise in KBC and then from KBC and KKKG he got great star power so much so comparison were started between SRK and Amitabh. He even did lead roles in movies later like Aks(2001), Ankhein(2002), Kante(2002), Baghban(2003), Deewar(2004), Black(2005), Baabul(2006), Sarkar(2007). Although he is giving 5 to 7 movies a year but atleast one or two movies as lead role is enough to get him in the list of actors who are doing lead roles till now. Even Aamir Khan gave only 4 movies in last 6 years in a lead role. So we cannot finish Amitabh star power count till 1991. He has to face Star Power Comparison till now if he s doing movies in lead role till now. Yes we can say it in this way that after 1991 he is a complete failure and Amitabh success rate is less than even 35 to 40% and he still has to give atleast one solo all time blockbuster. Lets pray for him that he can deliver that. All my prayers are with Amitabh to deliver one good movie to come to the list of highest Star Power people like Dilip Kumar, Aamir, SRK who already gave Solo Blockbusters.

  443. Nowadays the actors having highest Star Powers and have great BO Impact are:
    1. SRK
    2. Hrithik
    3. Akshay Kumar
    4. Aamir Khan and so on.

  444. I have read a lot of messages and feel its really sad that SRK is being compred to AB. I fail to see anything relevant in this comparison.

    How can you possibly compare a star who is at his peak to a star that is over-the-hill and is in his mid60s. If you want to compare the 2 the best possible comparison would be who had a bigger standing in the industry at the same age…?

    In 1984 AB was 42, the same age as SRK is now. If you look at his record of hit consistency there is simply no comparison between AB and SRK. SRKs hits just pale in comparison. I dont think any SRK fan in their true sense will try to compare SRK with AB at the same age as there is truely only ONE WINNER. One poster rightly said that AB was a ONE-MAN-INDUSTRY then, SRK today has so much competetion from his fellow collegues Aamir, Salman, Hrithik.

    Another way to compare the 2 would be to wait till SRK is in his 60s, and then we will see what standing he has in the film industry and how many hits he gives. This is just a prediction but im 99.9% sure that SRK will never be in ABs league when he is 65. There has never been an actor in indian history who was in demand with directors and producers at the age of 65.

    Also here i would like to add that stars nowadays are getting smaller and smaller.
    With the sattelite invasion in india stars are just not big as they were before. Stars of yesteryears had a mystique and grandeour about them. There was no TV, none of the hundreds of channels we have now, filmstars seemed larger than life then. I think the peak of stardom in india reached its ultimate peak with AB, his entrance in the film industry coincided with the birth of the VHS recorder. There was only 1 channel in india DOORDARSHAN at the time. I remember his accident on the sets of coolie, doordarshan gave hourly bulletins on his health the first in indiaan TV history.

    Today there are hundreds of channels with mulitiple choices for the viewer. I think sattelite TV has killed of the SUPERSTAR. Todays stars are just not BIG as they were like before, stars seem small and human-like this was not the case before, if you dont like them you press a button on your remote and they are gone. I think superstardom finished with Amitbh Bachchan.

    SRK, Hrithik, Aamir, Salman, maybe popular in todays time but they cannot compare to legends of yesteryears as they seem so normal, there is no mystique about them, no grandeur. You can easily access them but switching on the TV. The excitment has gone. Also todays stars lack PAN-INDIAN appeal, even SRK todays biggest star has no PAN-INDIAN appeal. His films mostly run in urban centres in multiplexes but in rural centres he has no market-value. Majority of the indian population lives in rural areas. This was not the case with stars from the past.

    Amitabh Bachchan was the last star who had appeal which penetrated the urban/rural divide, it didnt matter if you were a professor from the city or a rickshaw driver he was a HERO to both. SRK is only a hero to the multiplex crowd and the NRI audience, infact todays big movies are aimed at the multiplexes and the NRIs as investment can be recovered easily within a week due to the high ticket prices.

  445. Amitabh retired temporarily from 1991-1997.He gave some special appeaances that’s all.Although since 1987 his position has become weak but maintaining that position is itself a record.
    As I have already explained amitabh scores over shahrukh khan because of 1973-1991 compaision.I think post 1997 where he stopped playing leading roles we should not take his fims into consideration.How can we compare rgv ki aag where he played a villain.There are some films like paheli which are made for artistic reasons which should not be counted.
    But can I get the link of salman khan vs shah rukh khan comparision.I would like to know who got more points.

    Flora is right when she said aamir khan
    is not a superstar.I agree with it.He is a highly overrated star.

  446. Yes I also think we should not compare the two. Both are of different era. Both are great. Both are the true assets of Bollywood Industry. Both have shown full potential as Actor and Both are great stars.

  447. hello

    if you see history of bollywood, you observe that amitabh face more than 35 year in bollywood it is not easy. he is real hero.he is super star of 1970,1980,1990,2000 and now 2007,we observe that today so many star in the industry but amitabh is still having a good impression in the industry.

    about sharuk, his many movies depend on love story.

    I like amitabh to much, his style, movement , face empression.

  448. Amitabh is shehshan and you can’t compara with SRK. Amitabh is Superstar and SRK is copycatter.SRK is very mean,political and troublemaker and do bad comment on Amitabh. i have a no respect for SRK. Can’t comprision with Amitabh bachhan. in Amitabh Bachhan time there is lot of comptitation with other big actors like Rajesh khanna Jitendra, Shashi kapoor, Dharamendra, Vinod khanna,Sanjeev kumar and lot of other. now Amitabh is 65 and SRK 42 and SRK looks very old at age 42 and i like to see how SRK look when he is 65 and i don’t thinks SRK look great at 65. So can’t comprision SRK and Amitabh Bachhan. last answer is Amitabh Bachhan is Great and he still rules the Bollywood cinema.

  449. i had also watched amitab movies and srks too but i am impressed with srk not with amitab bachan
    yes truly said by sanjay there was no tv and there was no cable network and low ticket price

    now adays large no of peoples didnt watch movies because of high ticket price and especially poor people they used to watch films on pirated cdies and on tv

    if ticket price became low i think there will be dubbled audience in cinema

    and srk had didnt got his status from tv or from any other sourcess as well as amir salman saif sanjay and etc

    they all came in starting of 90s or in 80s ending

    these all things cdies tvs and cable network has been come out after 1998

    and before that srk amir salman saif sanjay

    they all were superstars

    hrithik would be the best choice for saying that he is a media creation

    not srk amir salman saaif or sanjay etc

    i personaly like srk acting not amitab and his films

    sorry if any one is hurt by this comment

  450.

  451. AMITABH IS THE SUN. SRK IS JUST A HALLEY’S COMET. THE FACT THAT HALLEY’S COMET MAKES TO THE HEADLINES OF DAILY NEWSPAPERS DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT IS GREATER THAN THS EUN. IT COMES NO WHERE NEAR THE SUN. AMITABH, ALL THROUGH HIS CAREER, HAS BEEN COMPARED TO SUCH LESSER STARS. VINOD KHANNA IN 1976, MITHUN IN 1980, HACKIE SHROFF IN 1985, ANIL KAPOOR IN 1988, SALMAN IN 1989….. THE MAN IS 65 NOW, WRINKLED AND WEATHER-BEATEN…NOW THEY ARE COMAPRING HIM WITH SHAH RUKH KHAN WHO IS 20 YEARS YOUNGER……… MEDIA IS ONE HUGE ARSE HOLE, WITH NO SENSE OF HISTORY………… IN 1988, ILLUSTRATED WEEKLY TOLD THE PEOPLE AMITABH BACHCHAN ERA IS OVER (“KHALLAS” WAS THE HEADLINE OF THE STORY) WHERE IS ILLUSTRATED WEEKLY NOW? WHERE IS THE REPORTER WHO FILED THE STORY………..? DO NOT PASS UR COMMENTS ON CHOSEN PEOPLE, WITHOUT HAVING A TASTE OF HISTORY….. TIME WILL PROVE YOU WRONG….!

  452. @ amit .

    Yes SRK cant be like big B because SRK is SRK .

    and who says Devdas & Kal Ho na Ho havent made money … crap .

    They both gross almost doubled or 1.5th total collections of Lagaan each .

    And every SRK hater is just jealous about the Super super star dom of SRK .

    Could have aamir made OSO a blockbuster or could be able to play such a role and entertain us ? No one is able to do handle the role of kabir Khan or Mohan Bhargava or Om Prakash Makhija or Aman Mathur other than SRK .

    Amitabh & Aamir are biggest actors .
    But SRK is the biggest star and biggest entertainer and most beloved star of the Hindi Cinema … you know that all dudes but just jealous .. grow up !

  453. amitabh made it worse … SRK gave tw superhits when worked in remakes Don & Devdas inspite of bad criticism by proffessional critics . and when AB tried to do he fails with RGV ki Aag .

    And I cant just stop laughing when someone compares the roles of hero and heroine … and said some ridiculous things about SRK in DDLJ , now that I would say Sholay was entirely a Hema Malini movie as she had the maximum numbers of dialouges ha ha ha ha

  454. Forget the DVD/videos piracy. The percentage of cine goers now is much lesser than it used to be in the 70s or the 80s. And don’t forget that with all that, the pricing structure was totally different in those days. So if SRK movies had released then, he would probably have been just another Navin Nischol. (Heard of him?) Just because SRK had his days with a select bunch of crooks for directors does not mean he is comparable to Big B. I find it irksome that you do not see fit in comparing him to Akshay Kumar, but want to compare him with a 60 year old budao!?! It only shows that something is missing in someone’s rocker(Shaan Khan is a pankha. The fact that the budao is still acting only shows that there are more chances now for budao’s to act then there was in the 70s. At that time they criticized 40 year old actors for acting with 16 year old heroines. Now you have SRK acting the same way but no one’s complaining because times change. SRK will definitely act, even at 70, no doubt, but his commercial feasibility is in doubt. With the huge expectations with each hit, there is bound to be an increase in expectation.

    And the facts you quoted about AB movies are definitely wrong. I can vouch for it! I have a film magazines from the 70s right upto the 90s’ (library) and can disprove your reports anytime you want to.

  455. And of course the fact remains that most channels still call even the flops you have listed as blockbusters. How come?

  456. kullas ,you are a chronic positive dreamer.

    Otherwise nobody in the world in their wildest of dreams would have compared the BO clout of SRK with navin Nischal.

    You must be some man.Great yaar.You should become a very good movie historian.

    Fantastic .Great man.keep dreaming.I really hope ,someday someone might agree with you.

  457. But i have one problem man.We all know that BIG B was a great superstar.No body even denies that.

    Similarly we know that SRK is the biggest star at this moment and he is ruling since 95 till date.

    When the so called bacchan fans do accept that????

    We cant say who is the greatest because they belong to different generations.

    Its like comparing Sachin with gary sobers.We dont know who is the greatest.But we know one thing.Both are GREATS.
    Same with SRK and Amitabh.

    BOTH ARE GREATS

  458. I liked the work of SRK in Asoka (The Emperor Role), Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na (Young man role), Baadshah (Comedian), Duplicate (Villaneous Role), Josh (Gangster Type Role), Ram Jane (Tapori Role), Devdas (Lover Boy Role) etc. The acting class which he showed and versatility he showed in above mentioned movies is ultimate.

  459. The acting of SRK in his last five movies is also outclass and marvelous. He did top notch acting in Paheli(Artistic Character Role), KANK(Negative Character Role), Don(Fighting/Angry man Role), CDI(Patriotic Character Role) and OSO(Fun/Entertaining Role). The variety of outclass acting which he has given proves his versatility in all his movies.

  460. SRK is a real KING OF BOLLYWOOD & THE KING OF THIS WORLD O

  461. Its not easy to say that one is better than the other. Shah rukh khan is a legendary actor in his own right. He is very versatile-exemplary in villanous, romantic, dramatic and offbeat roles. How can you say he is simply good? Maybe you don’t see his genious. Do you understand Chaplan? Maybe not. He is loved the world over and respected and adorned for his fantastic performances. Amitabh is also great but could never do DDLJ or Om shanti om or devdas like Shah rukh. And I know Shah rukh could not have done deewar or trishul as good.
    So that is stupid to say something from passion without any REAL argument. Some of you guys need to get a grip and be honest. Amitabh and shah rukh are not gods or role models (Barkley). Amitabh is an alleged adulterer and shah rukh is allegedly arrogant. Both are great bollywood actors. But Dilip was the greatest, the best young actor ever (better than khan or bacchan) and definitely better than Amitabh in old age (Go watch Shakti again).

  462. shah rukh khan is my role model

    and iwant to be like shahrukh

    he is the best actor in the world

    i love his every moment in the film

    i love his acting and every thing he do

    his hair his acting the way he smile

    i had also watch amitab movies but i didnt like his movies

    i only like shahrukh khan

    only shahrukh

    i also watch others actors movie

    but i didnt like them

    i like them litttle bit but not much as i love shahrukh and his

    acting

    shahrukh khan is my role model

    and he is the best in busssiness

    he will always remain the best

    srk rulzzzzzzzzzz

  463. Dears
    Its surprising that people in this forum are comparing SRK with Shahrukh.Let me tell u all that dilip kumar & amitabh are uncomaprable.Now point should be to whom we can transfered this legacy of 2 legends in the current generation of actor stars.For me I will rate AAMIR KHAN over all the other STAR ACTORS.He has not only shown his sensibility in exploring himself as an actor but also dictate his terms of success.He has change the mindset of filmi bazaar with values & etiquette. He has proved evryone that if you are honest to your work u can get yourself place over every one.I dont deny that SRK has made his filmy entry with a different style & has made his place in the filmi bazaar BUT ON WHAT ETHICS we have to really look into.He can be comparable but not with these 2 legends. We all can compare him with RAJESH KHANNA Or NANAPETAKAR who were creatively genius in ther beginning but become monotonous & Streotype.So Please Dont compare ,just think of transferring the legacy from Amitabh.& I think SRK in coming 5 years will washout due to lack in his acting skills.Marketing ability can made him survive but it can not make him last for long.
    HOPE YOU ALL WILL AGREE MY POINT.WAITING FOR ALL OF YOURS COMMENT.
    BEST WISHES

  464. Just one more thing: All of you guys who argue that Shah rukh sucks or Amitabh sucks keep saying- Well shah rukh sucks because he doesn’t do enough drama, but he has excelled in dramas (swades, asoka, Chak de). And you Amitabh haters say well amitabh is stiff, not enough comedies (Amitabh had amar akbar anthony and namak halal). Both were great, had there own genres they dominated but were pretty good to excellent in other genres too. SO BOTH should be RESPECTED. And many of you need to grow up and admit other peoples successes, even if they are not your favorite BOLLYWOOD ACTOR! Yesterday was Dilips than Amitabh, now its Shah rukh then it will belong to somebody else.

  465. after seeing saawariya, i’d say Ranbir Kapoor has the capacity to be SRKs successor to the throne

  466. Amitabh in the 70′s and 80′s was and is the champion of Indian Films. Don’t compare recent Amitabh’s films…there is not one movie SRK can compare with.

    Do this simple test. Find any outstanding Amitabh performance and compare a SRK scene that displays the same intensity in the acting. You won’t find one.

    Amitabh’s voice and appearance already are better than SRK.

    Example…Amitabh and Dilip Kumar in the movie Shakti. There’s a scene where Vijays mom passes and Amitabh tries to console his father and get some attention back from his angry dad at the same time. No dialogue in the scene and it will make you cry.

  467. hello friends,

    Please stop comparing each and every one with srk we know who is goog who is bad.
    Actors learnt lot from previous lessons i will give some examples

    1)Srk enter bollywood everybody compare with govinda/amir/salman
    we know what happened.
    2)After Govinda start comparing with Aftab/where is aftab
    3)when aftab killed by srk then compare akshay kumar(I love akshay)
    4)suddenly came hritik roshan and went out same time
    5)please stop compete with amitabh bachan,we know 2007 is goog for Mr bachan,he gave nishabd,cheeni kam hai,rgv ki aag etc.,
    if u not stop comparing he will give like this movies.
    6)latest comparing with ranbir kapoor before release he is out from bollywood.

    Please stop comparing
    particularly with Mr.Bachan we want to see him more

    see you

    Shah:-King
    Rukh:-high

  468. compare sahrukh(bocus hero of indian cinema) with Amitab when he wil turn 65 years old.he will exists nowhere in comparision where Amitab exist today.

  469. Hold on a moment….this does not make sense http://www.boxofficeindia.com/ this site shows Pardes as a hit but the above as a Blockbuster !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Someone said Amiatbh was media-made (along those lines) Do you know abt the 15 year press ban, during that period Amiatbh ruled the box office 1975 1992 (with a blip here and now.

    Surly with NO meida expousre he is bigger

  470. Also to fairly compare the 2 actors (because of the big differences in the number of moives they have stared in, look at the first decade of films each actor made!!!!!!!!!!!

  471. Hello friends ,

    Behalf of Mr.Bachan to audience

    Arz Hai…

    Nafrath Karte Ho To Izhar Kiyun Kiya, Dena Tha Zaher To Pyaar Kiyun Kiya, Dekar Zaher Kahte Ho Peena Hi Padega, Pilakar Zaher Kahte Ho Jina Hi padega (audience)

  472. there is no comparison between big b and srk.srk is the best.its just bcoz of his actingthat a movie with no story like oso became a blockbuster.while big b
    achieved bcoz of brilliand story by salim javed.big b has no solo all time blockbuster while srk has 3, kkhh,ddlj and oso.srk has done all kinds of roles most of which has been successful.while big b only villainous role in aag turned out to be a disaster.remake of don with srk was a hit while remake of sholay was on of the biggest flops

  473. sorry oso is not an all time blockbuster but a blockbuster

  474. Max – big b only villainous role in aag ……….waste ot time talking to you,,,,,,amitabh has done more than just 1 negative role !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    As I have said before compare the 1st decade of each actor, Amitabh by far has a much wider scope of roles and hits!

  475. amitabh’s biggest hit is sholay and the biggest flop is rgv ki aag.

  476. Hey! In accordance with http://www.planetbollywood.com, OSO has attained All Time Blockbuster status after its fourth week. The movie is liked by people and they are watching it again and again and so much so it has collected over 81 Cr in just four weeks. In US and in UK, it has broken all the records already and got All Time Blockbuster Status already.

  477. You know SRK is selected as the Sexiest Man in Asia

  478. You know SRK is selected as Business Entertainment Leader of the year. This award is presented for the first time to any Bollywood Actor by Business / Commerce Industry

  479. Shahrukh is the greatest ever star in bollywood’s history. There is no doubt about it now after Chak De and OSO’s massive success. And he still has many more years in front of him.

  480. this is wrong! comparing srk with big b???? NO WAY MAN!!!

    BIG B WAS THE STAR OF THE YESTERYEARS..BUT SRK IS THE KING AND HE RULES TODAY’S WORLD!!! you could have compared big b with someone who is of his age and was an actor too!

    it is completely unlogical to say that big b has had more super hits and srk less..and that’s only bcoz big b’s had much more years of movies than srk! if big b has had more years in bollywood, it would be obvious that he has more films…and if srk has been having less years, then obviously, he has less movies!!! but i tell you..wait for some more years..SRK too will be as gud as big b! maybe even better!

    i’m simply a fan of SRK frm the age of 4! i used to jump when i hear his name or anything else about him!!..well..it’s the same thing now also and it will stay the same thing!!!

    (b)SHAH RUKH KHAN, YOU RULE BOLLWOOD! (/b)

  481. Swatee,

    I cant agree to you more.

    We are wasting our time comparing both the legends.

    We all respect BIG B

    But at this mopment SRK simply rocks and no body is bigger than him .

  482. swatee

    aghar shahrukh old ho gaye tu tum phir bhi yeh kaho gay kay shahrukh was a star of yester year and ….. is a star of today

    no man i dont agree with you

    amitab fan is amitab fan and shahrukh fan is shahrukh khan fan

    so dont change your parties

    i always been shahrukh khan fan

    and will not change my party if shahrukh give 100 flops

    if i would amitab fan i would not change my party

    amitab fan still loves amitab and his acting
    they are not changing there parties

    if someone change there parties they are called beewafa

    so those people who r amitab fans so dont change your parties

    like swatee who is bewafa

  483. hey is dere any way of terminating d site- IBOS…

  487. sajjad dont understand the reason for posting this ??

    Dont u accept those info ?

  488. Guys all of you go and Watch the Movie- Ganga Jamuna Saraswati…i am sure all will start hating Big B…he is Pathetic…It is surprising to C dat so called Big B…decides to Act in such a lousy Movie…

    Unnecessary Hype about Big B…i feel he didn’t deserve it…

  489. Guys! In my point of view Amitabh was a great actor of his time. This is the year of Shahrukh and Akshay Kumar. Sharukh has done 2 successful movies which collected 145 Cr to 150 Cr. Akshay has done 3 successful movies which collected almost 155 Cr in total. However Akshay’s another movie is releasing in December and if it is successful then Akshay’s all 4 movies will be crossing 200 Cr in total in terms of revenues. These two actors have shown their full potential this year.

  490. IS SRK A COMEDIAN?……NO
    IS SRK A ACTION HERO?…..NO
    IS SRK A VILIAN?…..NO

    SRK IN WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE? WAT A FLOP…..

    WHY DID HE COPY DON?….
    WHY DOES HE COPY DILIP KUMAR?…

    I THINK HE WILL HAVE LUNG CANCER SOON WITH ALL THAT SMOKING… WAT A GOOD EXAMPLE TO KIDS!!!!

    BIG B IS THE ORIGINAL DON AND WILL NEVER BE BEATEN.

  491. IS SRK A COMEDIAN?……YES. Check the movie Yes Boss (He was nominated for filmfare best actor), Baadshah (Got nominated for Filmfare Best Comedian Award), One 2 Ka 4. Check the movie Kabhi Han Kabhi Na (He was nominated for critics filmfare best actor award)
    IS SRK A ACTION HERO?…YES. Lots of movies of Sharukh as action hero. No need to tell. Recent copied role of Don (He got nominated for Filmfare Best Actor Award)
    IS SRK A VILLAN?……..YES. The name Rahul was the recognition of SRK and started with his movie Darr. Then comes Anjam. Another SRK sentence K..K..K..Kiran got fame which was for his villaneous role. He got Best villan award as well.

    SRK IN KBC? KBC reached heights due to SRK and SRK is doing third term for KBC.

    WHY DID HE COPY DON?…..to show that a repeated Don role can be done at par or better again. He made DON blockbuster again.
    WHY DID HE COPY DEVDAS?..to show that a repeated Love role can be done at par or better again. He made Devdas blockbuster again. Very less actors are able to do good in the copied roles and turned the movie blockbuster again and SRK is standing on top in the list.

    One should not pray for other’s sickness and one should not feel joy on other’s sadness

    Yes BIG B was very good star and actor of his times although BIG B has also done a copied role of Gabbar of Sholay. right! But this is the year of Sharukh and Akshay Kumar with 100% success rate this year.

  492. don’t compare this bloody sharukh with anybody, he is no comparable with any one because no other actor mock another fellow actor.Manoj Kumar a living legend of Indian movies, he made wonderful patriotic films for India. For such a great stalwarts shahrukh khan and farah khan plays a spoof for him in their recent movie, they should be condemed for such a silly act, although Manoj Kumar “Bharat kumar” is so magnenimous that he forgive such rascal thing, but these people are so brutal that they not ready to cut that scene of the movie, that is unnecessary and image spoiling scene of such a great actor. shahrukh you are a good actor but does it mean that you can make spoof of anybody, imagine after 25 years just like you some actor will come and make fun of your acting and your work what will be in your heart that time. so be sensible and not play with anybodies sentiments otherwise we would not like to see your movies.

  493. People think that from 1975 to 1991, Amitabh was no 1. That is absolutely wrong. In 1975 Amitabh got recognition from Sholay and it gave him a break. The shining star of Sholay was Dharminder, if you see the box office and newspaper of that time you will find that 1975 and 1976 was best for Sanjeev Kumar and he was on top. He was there for two years but he was on top at that time. Amitabh movies in 1976 were Do Anjane, Balika Badhu, Adalat, Kabhi Kabhi, Hera Pheri.

    However Amitabh reign started in 1977 and 1978 as he did his best movies. In 1979 and 1980 he could not deliver good performances to be on top and he did Mr Natwarlal, The great gambler, Jurmana, Manzil, Kala Pathar, Suhaq, Ram Balram, Do aur do panch, Dostana and Shaan. But even then he was able to manage to come in top 3 or top 5 positions due to his movies in 1977 and 1978.

    From 1981 to 1984 he delivered good movies but alongwith him Naseerudin Shah also delivered the best hits of his time and Naseerudin Shah got Filmfare best actor awards in 1981, 1982 and 1984. But Amitabh was the also on top due to his good hits and got stardom.

    In 1985 Amitabh did Ghulami, Geraaftar, Mard. In 1986 Amitabh did Akhree Rasta and in 1987 he did not deliver any movie so no question for him to be on top in these three years. However he was among top 3 or top 5 or top 7 due to his star power.

    Then he was off and on in next years. Like in 1988 he had a good hit Shehanshah. But the fierce competition was with Anil Kapoor who took over his reign from everybody. Anil Kapoor Tezab was the best of that year and he had other good movies like Vijay and in 1989 Anil Kapoor gave Ram-Lakhan. The top star from then was Anil Kapoor and he outclassed everybody till 1992 however Amitabh was among top till 1992 but not the top.

    Amitabh best era was 1977, 1978, 1981 to 1984. In 1988 Aamir also got fame from his QSQT. In 1991 and onwards Salman also got fame from his Saajan and then in 1994 from HAHK. You know HAHK is among top movies of Indian Bollywood.

    Amitabh stardom…
    1975 (very low)…..
    1977.1978 (Increased Stardom to be among top)…
    1981.1988(Top)…
    1989.1992 (Among Top)

    Amitabh Movies…
    1975 (Got Recognition)…
    1977.1978(Good Acting. Got Fame)..
    1979.1980(Manage to be among good actors)….
    1981.1984(Top Notch Acting and top movies)…..
    1985 to 1987(Manage to be among top actors)..
    1988(Again good break through and good acting)…
    1989.1992(Manage to be among good actors)….
    1998(Got Fame again)

    If we go strict then he was on top in 1977, 1978, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984. In 1985, 1986,1987, although he did not give the best movies of the year but due to his stardom and due to his presence in the movies he was among top in 1985, 1986 and 1987 and then Anil Kapoor took over the stardom. But yes Amitabh was among top 3 in all these years from 1977 to 1991 as far as his stardom counts. Amitabh was a great star of his time and we should not compare him with anybody. So is SRK nowadays.

    SRK got fame from his movies Darr, Anjam and Bazigar. Although he got best actor award in Baazigar and Best Villan Award in Darr but he was not on top. He went on top with DDLJ in 1995 and then he got increase in his stardom but yes in this century from 2001 he is on top.

    One thing to let you know that Dilip Kumar got 7 Filmfare Best Actor Awards from 1958 to 1972 in 15 years and got 8th one in 1983. SRK got his 6 Filmfare Best Actor Awards from 1994 to 2007 and if he gets another one in 2008 then SRK will be having 7 best actor awards in 15 years same as Dilip Kumar got 7 in 15 years.

  494. shahrukh nay or farah khan nay sorry keh diya hai

    shahrukh says iam sorry to manoj kumar if he is hurt of the scenes in the film

  495. Whoever MATE is…..it made too impatience out of neutral movie goers like me…………….anyone talking such a bullshit about AMITABH is not tolerable…after amitabh is a god of indian cinema….shahrukh and other are just momentary entertainers..come on Mate…..don’t call for your death…..such dirty words may cost u a lot……probably a death……never dare these words against amitabh

  496. swatee
    its fucking response…………….

  497. Ahmed

    You better go to Pakistan…than raising HINDU-MUSLIM conflict between Amitabh and Shahrukh….and if u u could take Shahrukh there along with u……………….

  498. Brother Imraan! Stardom goes with mass appeal in public and these actors get stardom due to their work. If you think is God then first let us analyze Amitabh work from 1975 to 1991 as i tried to explain before. In 1975 he although got recognition from Sholay but not Stardom, first he was not the main lead, he was the second lead. Although people started knowing him but he did not get him up in 1976 as his movies were Do Anjane, Balika Badhu, Adalat, Kabhi Kabhi, Hera Pheri (None of them were big grosser or blockbuster)

    1977 and 1978 were very good for Amitabh and he got his stardom from here.

    Again his performances in 1979 and 1980 were Mr Natwarlal, The great gambler, Jurmana, Manzil, Kala Pathar, Suhaq, Ram Balram, Do aur do panch, Dostana and Shaan. None of them were big grossers or blockbusters.

    From 1981 to 1984 he did good movies and came on top.

    In 1985 Amitabh did Ghulami, Geraaftar, Mard. Although these were good but non of the movie brought people in the cinema to make it blockbuster. In 1986 Amitabh did Akhree Rasta and in 1987 he did not deliver any movie so no question for him to be among top in these three years.

    Stardom revolves around the work and Amitabh best work was in 1977, 1978, 1981 to 1984. Although 1977 and 1978 built his stardom but he could not make him on top after 1985 in real sense and from 1988 till 1992 Anil Kapoor was on top.

    Please give Anil Kapoor also a credit of his work and check the newspaper too. The story does not end in between Amitabh and SRK, there are other stars too. I really remember the era of 1988 to 1992 when people were crazy about the movies of Anil kapoor and ready to pay four times of original movie price.

    Ya Amitabh stardom got among top again when he did Mohabatein (1999), KKKG (2000) and KBC(2000). Since then he is again among top.

    Yes Amitabh was great star of yesteryears and now SRK is standing on top. These are the real assets of Indian Bollywood Industry. We should be proud of these stars. And SRK has brought the competition with Hollywood movies and his OSO has beaten Lion for Lambs records in first week.

    Another big star of this year is Akshay Kumar whose delivered four succesful movies. http://www.bollynewz.com/news/top-5-bollywood-actors-and-actresses-2007/

  499. immran

    amitab is just a !!!!!

    he doesnt know how to act

    only shahrukh knows how to act

    shahrukh is much better actor than amitab and from any one

    he is the king khan

    om shanti om is super duper movie

    shahrukh rulz the bollywood

    shahrukh has the stardom of 3.6 billion

    he is the big superstar and best actor in the world

    shahrukh you r the best

  500. Box Office record by SRK. OSO has emerged to be a biggest blockbuster ever. Great!

  501. nobody in the world of acting can be equal to shah rukh khan. he makes sub standard movies extra ordinary via his perfomance,but indian industry did not utilize his capacity properly.they can take him also those type of well written social asspect movies in which sanjevee kamar and nana patikar acted.today indian directors and producer just want to get success,but they are misused shah rukh khan and waste his energy,on the other hand amitabh bachchan is only the name u cannot compare him with shahrukh khan because shah rukh khan is beyond all other actors

  502. shaensha ka king is sharukh khan
    not only big b no othert actors can compete srk

  503. AMITABH IS AMITABH, DO NOT COMPARE TO AMITABH WITH ANY ONE, SAB SE PAHLI BAAT KE AMITABH TAK KI OONCHAI PAANE KE LIYE SAB SE PAHLE AMITABH JAISA HIGHT LAANA ZAROORI HO GA. HAKLA KHAN KO KAHO KE PAHLE HAKLANA CHODE US KE BAAD AMITABH TAK PAHCOHNE KI SOCHE. IMAGINE AT THE AGE OF 65 STILL HE IS RULING THE INDUSTRY. KOI AISA DIN NAHI HOTA HAI JIS DIN MR. BACHCHAN NEWS ME NA HO. RISHI KAPOOR KA KAHNA HAI KE AMIABTH IS ALWAYS FROM 1 TO 10 NUMBERS. DOOSORE ARTIST KA NUMBER 11 SE START HOTA HAI……SO ALL BACHCHAN FANS DO NOT CARE ABOUT WHAT OTHERS TELLING.

  504. jab sey shahrukh aya hai amitab ka time khatam ho gaya hai

    shahrukh is the king

    better than amitab

    amitab khabhi bhi shahrukh jaisi success nahi pa sakhta

    srk rulz the bollywood

    no one can come near to him

    srk is far better than amitab

    srk has dominated the bollywood by his brilliant acting by his brillian perfomance

    tab hi tu woo consecutive 5 dafa sabsey favourite bana hai

    by beating the amitab and many other actors

    srk is a quality hero

    i love you sha sha sha rukh

  505. Oh ‘fish off’ SRK’s the best no one can beat him, i see people like Big B, Aishwariya Rai, Hrithik Roshan as over rated stars, the problem is that people look at income they don’t look at the art in context for example when Hritihk won the Filmfare award i was practically crying becuase i found SRK’s performance in KANK as something new and something that should have been credited for, more-over performances of Sanjay Dutt, Akshaye Kumar and Aamir Khan is always over looked. this is the same with the Actresses although i did agree with Kajol’s award.

    Point am making is that it’s the money that speaks not the performance i don’t find anything wrong with srk’s except that ridiculous film ‘yeh lamhe judaai ke’ amitabh on the other hand over does it see Black for instance (nice one Aamir)

  506. MANNAMACK FROM SOMALIA
    Hi guys ………first I would like to introduce my self am Mannamack From Horn Africa (somalia ).its a beautiful country u can see every thing Bollywood actors and hollywood actors ….Let me tell you the camparison of SRK and BIG B Both they are great super hero indian but one thing is different I confuse SRK and BIG B cuz they are totally different Age at moment BIG around above 60 and SRK 40 so I had seen many movee of bollywood like BIG B sholay ,Don 1,etc and SRK Kuch Kuch Hota Hai ,Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge but unfortunatelly All somalia likes only two actors SalmAn Khan and Hritik roshan Actress Kajol and hima malila .
    WHO IS SRK AND BIG B ?
    SRK KING OF BOLLYWOOD and BIG B BIG OF INDIAN NATIO both are legend indian but one thing is true SRK is BEST ACTOR AND HAVING ALL TYPES OF ENTERTAINMENT SUCH COMEDY ,ROMANCE .GANG. AND SUPORTER BUT BIG B NOT MUCH SIMILAR SRK .
    SRK IS STYLISH AND GREAT HE DONT HAVE FAMILY IN BOLLYWOOD HE IS STILL LAST MAN SERVIVING IN BOLLYWOOD AND STILL EARNIG BIG BOX OFICE COLLECTION OVERSEAS ALSO .
    HE IS A LEGEND . I WAS ANGRY WHEN AJAY DEFGAN MARRIED KAJOL CUZ KAJOL AND SHAH RUKH KHAN ARE BEST COUPLE IN BOLLYWOOD AND LIKES BOTH KAJOL AND SRK ON THE OTHER SIDE BIG B IS FUNDAMENTALIST HINDUS CUZ HE NEVER INVITE HIS SON WEddin SRK AND OTHER KHANS …..BUT SRK MARRIED HINUS WOMEN SO PLZ DONT EVER INSULT BIG B I AM FUN OF BOTH CUZ THEY ARE GREAT SUPERSTAR AND HEROS REMEMBER THAT ALL OF THE WORLD U CAN SEE ONLY SRK FUNS BUT NOT BIG B SO LAST BUT NOT LEAST
    SRK LEADS THIS COMPARISIN 5 AND BIG B 4 THAT IS IT .

  507. The list does not have CDI or OSO. It needs a special category for Aag.

  508. My list would be:

    All Time Blockbusters
    Om Shanti Om
    Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
    Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

    Blockbusters
    Chak De India
    Karan Arjun
    Dil To Pagal Hai
    Veer Zaara
    Mohabbatin
    Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
    Main Hoon Naa
    Darr
    Don- The Chase Begins Again
    Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna

    Hits
    Baazigar
    Yess Boss
    Dil Se
    Dewaana
    Devdas
    Hum Tumare Hain Sanam
    Kal Ho Na Ho
    Josh
    Raju
    Chalte Chalte

    Flops
    All movies in 1996
    All movies except for 2 in 1995
    Asoka
    Swades
    Phir Bhi Hai Dil Hindustani
    Paheli

    The rest are Average

  509. Swades was hit and loved by critics. Also Paheli was nominated for Oscars.

  510. Box Office Comparison:
    SRK has submitted 27 Cr of Income Tax, Hrithik Roshan has submitted 15 Cr of Income Tax, Akshay has submitted 7 Cr of Income Tax and the whole family of Baachans incuding Ash, Abhishek and Amitabh has submitted almost 7 Cr of Income Tax for the year 2007.

    Thus approximately SRK has earned more than 100 Cr, Hrithik has earned almost 60 Cr while Akshay Kumar has earned almost 25 Cr to 30 Cr and whole family of Baachans has earned almost 25 Cr to 30 Cr in the year of 2007, based on the Income Tax.

  511. Has anyone noticed all of Amitabh’s hits has come from films with other superstar casts like Dharmendra in Sholay, Srk in KANK and K3G, Rajesh Khanna in Anand, Vindo Khanna and Amjad Khan in Muqaddar Ka Sikander, Amjad Khan in Laawaris, Dilip Kumar in Shakti shall i carry on………..

    Srk’s hits has seen him as a lone actor like Baazigar, Devdas, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Dil to Pagal Hai, Om Shanti Om, Don, Chalte Chalte oh and of course DDLJ.

    SRK’s the best in the industry Amitabh doesn’t even make my top ten his stardom was the fact he was shot in real life during a film (that’s how UK’s ch4 put him in the 100 top actors list), look at Govinda the most under-rated actor in Bollywood who made the top ten of the BBC’s best actors list the only down fall was that Bachcan topped that list again down to sympathy.

  512. Bachchan and Shahrukh, both are my favorite.

    But Bachchan is Tendulkar while Shahrukh is Yuvraj.

    Just watch the second half of the following link from youtube. It is an interview of Bachchan with Charlie Rose. Then think how Shahrukh will give this interview? Think of those childish answers and jokes he makes.

    For those who does not know Charlie Rose – he is one of the most famous and a very classy interviewer in US.

  513. Simple

    I agree Big B is very dignified in that interview. Generally he is very switched on in all interviews. Nonetheless I wish you could see him a minute after these interviews. There are two Bachchalans, one that you see on the screen and one that you don’t.

    SRK on the other hand, is the same SRK in all seasons, and at all times. He is always open, accessible, smart, and very sincere. There is no shadow or dual personality to him. Moreover depending on the environment he too puts aside jokes and humor and gets very serious (dignified and intellectual).

    One is real (i.e SRK) and the other is just a put on (Big B).

  514. Well Explained shaan

    I thnk Simple shud understand itni simple si baat

  515. I think all stars have a right to dual personality because thats what their job requires them to do. They have a right for being themselves don’t they?

    Even Shah rukh has commented in the “Inside and Outside world of shah rukh” that he has three sides – One is himself,the other is the actor and the third is the star.

    As for shah rukh being serious could you please give me of an example of a show, or interview where he has been serious I would like to view that.

    SRK is a good host and a very enthusiastic personality but he’s maturity level and style is very different to AB.

  516. i agree with shaan and completely disagree with Deepak.

    Yeah everybody do possess different shades to their personality…
    But amitabh is too pretentious for our liking.
    He is a more a hypocritical short of person and that shows in his interview too.That is the reason his interviews are most boring on the earth.

  517. Deepak C

    Sure we all have mutiple aspects to our personality. This is all fine and good as long as there is no major conflict. With Big B we are talking about Dr Jackyl, Mr Hyde.

    Since you asked about SRK, I recommend that you see the leadership campaign done by the media in India.

  518. Look, guys you all dont have to fight to say who is the best and who is the bad actors…….comparing to these 2 famous actor Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan………..i am a pure muslim from MAURITIUS……..and i am 56 years old. I always follow the filmfare, media and world news. India is a poor country and MAURITIUS is a rich country and i have go for several time to Europe, America and Asia. From my point of views According to these 2 actors…….the all time number one is only and only one Amitabh Bachchan jee(from number 1 to 10)everywhere i go he the only one man industry in Bollywood…….Shah Rukh Khan is better to compare with Dilip Kumar and Rajesh Khanna……why i said this…….please listen to me because i am experience on this matter…..and follow all the films, news and media……….today for Shah Rukh Khan for his film to come a hit, he need beautiful actresses and opposite sex….his film come a hit and he is a solo actors sometimes……. but for Amit Jee film, he didn’t need sex…..and he was also in multi-starer movie…..this kind of film is very nice to see when you see all actors are fighting to act better than other in the same film…….example…….in Sholay there were many actors Dharmendra suppose to be the lead role and Amit jee to play small role……..but what happen, Amit Jee dominates the film completely, the same happen to Shakti…..watch that film AAA and Hum…..all actors failed in acting compare with him in the same movie………and today Solo film for Shah Rukh Khan what ever he did, it is good…this will not help to show your maximum capacity and acting…..and in multi starer film Shah Rukh Khan will be a loser…….watch out……..Karan Arjun, KANK, KKKG, Shah Rukh is the loser in comparision to other actors in the same film………in solo film like, ….. DDLG, DON, OSO, DEVDAS, BAAZIGAR all the credits goes to only the Actresses, sex and Directors……….Amit Jee is the only Actors of that times…….his presence and his name surely makes the film half hits before his release.

    As i am not telling this to make Shah Rukh Khan fans dissapointed, but this is a fact……….if you not believe………put, both Actors today in a conference room and tell them to make a speech, you will come to know who will be better, put them together in a film where Amit play a negatives roles, put them to make a revaltry among them who will be the prime minister of India, make a public votes, Amit jee will be a Supreme Winner.

    If you dont believed this, go and asked once again to the media, from abroad india, that they have make a mistake to give Amit Jee, the Millenium actor…….tell them this awards is deserve to Shah Rukh Khan and then you will all see what will be the public reaction……if Shah Rukh is better…..then why he is not among the number 10. As i think the media has make a wrong decisions………..Amit is really the BEST

    One more thing…….Amit Jee on his golden era…..people used to pray him…..his film of that times was either a hit or a super hit, he used to work with all varieties of producers and director either big or small, but the film always come a hit…….and at that time there were many superstars which were already exist like, Dilip Kumar, Darmendra, Jeetendra, Shammi, Shashi, Raj KAPOOR,Manoj Kumar and Rajesh Khanna and when Amit Appear all disappear……it seem he had gone in the Sea to fight with shark and whales……and finally all disappear……for this i would like to say he is the only living legend man on earth. Don’t waste your time to compare a King Khan to the King of Bollywood……..

    If Shah Rukh is a Sun Amit is a God…….always remember………..in shah rukh khan time…..there were no superstar……….now, you can say there is superstar…..like, salman, akshay and amir khan………thats why he was the number one…with in the absence of the other superstar.

    Always remeber in 1970s, 80s,90s…….the living standard was low and people had no money………………and on that time he was number one then…….today nobody can torch him…………..let me give you a clear example of it………..

    Today there are 7 rich and industrialized country in the world……they are America, canada, Italia, England, Germany, Japan and france and far away Australia……and so on………these country on the year 1970′s, 80′s were on the way for development, the year 1970′s and 80′s were the pivotal period for the development of these countries………and if today this country have come the richest contryin the world………then no matter to say for these 7 countries today develpment is better than those of 70′s and 80′s.

    Old is gold………………..remember what i say………today there is 8 richest country in the world and the 8th one is Amit jee hahah……………………..

    he have had change the Hindi movie on his own way…….he was the only one man industry………..taday when a shah rukh khan film break a new record then in a few weeks another film is breaking his record example…….DDLG to Gadar, Don to Kriss, KANK to Dhoom 2, and later OSO to Welcome and on Amit Jee period he was the only actor to break his own records from his own films.

  519. Ryad

    What weed are you on ?

  520. Who is better actor, Aamir Or Amitabh, what do you think?

  521. Amitabh is a legendary ACTOR whereas SRK is mere a star. In the profession they deal in one would look for ACTORS not star such as SRK. Same goes for Aamir, he is an ACTOR not a star.

    I rate ACTORS over STARS.

  522. nobody can achieve the success SRK have acieved if he is not an actor.

    Even i do believe that amitabh is a good actor(Not a great one) and same is the case with SRK.

    Both are good actors and huge stars.

    Where as AAmir and Dilip Kumar are better actors but lesser stars.

    Secondly who decides what is good acting?Its tyhe audience not 10 juries and some so called intelligemt people.

    If a person connects to more audiences then thats is what acting is all about.

    Amitabh and SRK are great stars because they connect to the people and thats what matters.

  523. ryad are u drunk ??

  524. Amitab Bachan was the super star and Shahrukh Khan is the super star the difrence is was and is

  525. I am not indian, i am American and i love your films.

    Both actors are good but Big B is in a class of his own, SRK has a lot to do to get to where he is…

  526. Well Like Alanna i am also not indian
    but what i know from the films that Big B is was a good actor, he is a good actor, and he will be a good actor like others

    But if you wanna compair him with SRK the great then ur fool coz SRK is deferent in this modren world of media reign nither a the Small B can do what SRK is doing nor the Big B
    he (SRK) is defently going to be the the greatest of all times and espacially the way he is improving Look at OMO and then Check the India if he this time he is going to get the the Filmfare Best actor award for the 8th time if i am not mistaken and is going to equall all records set and will broke it next year

  527. SRK’s Om Shanti Om has grossed more than all of Big B’s films in 2007. OSO- 132 Crores. Bachchan’s movies- 120 Crore. Amitabh Bachchan had 5 releases.

  528. thnx for the point

    but can u prove with any kinda source

  529. Yes. boxofficeindia.com. It says that OSO grossed 86 Crores in India and 36 Crores overseas making the grand total, 122 Crores. On the other hand, Amitabh Bachchan’s Shoot Out grossed 34 Crores, overseas, less than 6 crores because the lowest gross amount in the overseas column is 6 crores. Eklava-20 crores, overseas 12. Cheeni Kum- 16, overseas-9. Aag-8, overseas, less than 6. Nishabad- 7, overseas again less than 6. This brings Amitabh Bachchan’s total gross to 85 Crores in India, and less than 39 Crores overseas. The grand total is 124 Crores BUT, it can be assumed that disaster films such as aag and nishabad grossed around 4-5 crores so the total is 36 crores overseas. The grand total now in 121 Crores, which is one less than Om Shanti Om’s total Box Office gross.

  530. Sorry, I made an error in my first post.

  531. I just found out today from BOI that OSO actually grossed 170 Crores worldwide.

  532. Thrz no compare btw Srk movies Vs Big B movies in 2007
