Just when you thought that Shah Rukh Khan’s position was weaker than his rivals in the movie market, IMDb said he was the number one star of Indian cinema in 2017. With two releases, Raees and Jab Harry With Sejal, King Khan reigned week after week on IMDb’s STAR Meter (Internet Movie Data Base).
Top 3 Occupied by Bollywood Stars:
IMDB based its list of the top 10 stars of 2017 in the Hindi film industry on their stats and StarMeter page views and took into account which actor stayed ahead and for how long. He was closely followed by Aamir Khan who was seen in Secret Superstar and whose Dangal was a breakthrough in China after winning the cash register in India in 2016. He made an appearance in Secret Superstar and also produced the film.
Salman Khan is ranked three. His tube light has failed miserably, but he is back in the news with Tiger Zinda Hai. The hype around its big guy release does not seem to end in this month.
Biggest Surprise To Bahubali Team:
The biggest surprise on this list, however, is Tamannaah Bhatia who is number four on this list. Although Anushka Shetty (No. 8) stole her thunder at Baahubali 2, she came to the occasion with the Tamil film Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan. She is a place for Irrfan Khan (No. 5) who succeeded with Hindi Medium and Qarib Qarib Singlle.
One of the biggest stars of the year, Prabhas, landed at age 6 while Anushka Sharma finished 7th. Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif respectively took the following two points.
But what casts a shadow of doubt on this list is the absence of Akshay Kumar, who was more or less accessible to the public all year round. His films Jolly LLB 2, Nam Shabana and Toilet Ek Prem Katha performed better than most movies this year.
