Salman Khan and other bankable stars of Bollywood

  • Salman Khan and other bankable stars of Bollywood
    A star's power in Bollywood is determined by the cold cash his movies rake in at the box office. More the moolah, bigger the star he is. And going with this theory, one can't refute that currently, Salman Khan is the undisputable sultan of Bollywood.

    Not only has his recent release Sultan struck gold at the BO, but the film is also continuing to break all records and is making his producers grin from ear to ear.

    However, Bhaijaan is not the only Bollywood actor who can create a furore at the box office and set new benchmarks, there are plenty of other stars who can hold their fort and assure the producers and directors a great opening at the BO.

    Let's check out some bankable actors, other than Salman Khan, who too can set the cash registers ringing at the box office.

  • Aamir Khan

    Not only does he ensure a great business at the box office, but also delivers good content, and that's what makes Aamir Khan one of the most bankable stars of Bollywood.

    In fact, it was Aamir Khan, who introduced Bollywood to the 100 crore club with his film - Ghajini, and ever since then all his films have successfully crossed the coveted 100 crore mark.

    His last release PK grossed 735 crore worldwide and became the highest-grossing Indian film of all time. And knowing Mr Perfectionist, it won't be a surprise if he sets some new benchmark with his forthcoming film Dangal.

  • Shah Rukh Khan

    His last few releases may not have hit the jackpot, but no one can deny the fact that Shah Rukh Khan is the Badshah of box office whose charisma attracts innumerable fans to the theatres.

    His Chennai Express had grossed over 423 crore and had surpassed 3 Idiots records to become the highest-grossing film worldwide 3 years ago.

    Going by Shah Rukh's popularity and his ability to lure his fans to the theatres, one can safely say that the Raees star is a very bankable actor, who can assure a good opening not just in India, but also across the globe.

  • Akshay Kumar

    If there is anyone who can beat the record-breaker Khans of Bollywood in the number game, it is the Khiladi of Bollywood - Akshay Kumar.

    There is no doubt that the Rustom star has the ability to bring home money from all his films and hence, be it the producers or the directors, all root for him.

    On an average, there are about four Akshay Kumar releases in a year and most of them run to full houses. No wonder he is considered bankable.

    His last two releases, Airlift and Housefull 3 had crossed the coveted 100 crore mark and were tagged as super hit and hit respectively.

  • Ajay Devgn

    Ajay Devgn may not be as powerful as the Khans when it comes to ruling the box office, but the action star does have a dedicated fan following who ensures that his films have a steady run at the BO.

    This Action Jackson star has victoriously crossed the 100 crore mark several times and has mostly delivered hits and super hits.

    His Singham Returns had earned a final worldwide gross collection of 215.57 crore. This makes us wonder what records would his upcoming film Shivaay break.

  • Hrithik Roshan
    Salman Khan and other bankable stars of Bollywood
    It's been a while since we have seen Hrithik on the big screen, but the Greek god of Bollywood has a good track record at the BO.

    All his films have done good business, especially his last release Bang Bang, which earned about 340 crore worldwide.

    He had even struck gold at the box-office with his Krrish 3 and Agneepath.

    Let's hope this dancer-actor manages to weave his charm at the box office with his forthcoming film Mohenjo Daro as well.

  • Ranveer Singh
    Salman Khan and other bankable stars of Bollywood
    He is relatively new in the business, but Ranveer Singh in a short span of time has managed to get a good grip on the box office.

    Be it Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, Gunday, or his last release Bajirao Mastani, the Befikre dude has managed to lure the audiences to the theatre with his sheer magnetism and has also set the cash registers ringing.

    Proof enough why he goes on this list.

  • Varun Dhawan
    Salman Khan and other bankable stars of Bollywood
    It may be too early to tag the Dhawan boy in the list of bankable stars.

    However, the fact that he has carried the weight of massive entertainers like Main Tera Hero, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, and ABCD 2 solely on his shoulders and has also managed to bring in the moolah, proves that he has a good BO potential.
