Shah Rukh Khan ruled 2011 according to readers, who polled the Don 2 star as the best actor of the year gone by. His film, Don 2, was the best film according to them.


However, Editor Komal Nahta’s picks for 2011 varied on both accounts. The trade analyst named Ranbir Kapoor as the best actor and Salman Khan’s Bodyguard as the best film.

It remains to be seen if the Slapgate controversy affects Shah Rukh Khan’s popularity.

    • u idoits there is a reason behind that coz’s budget is 1130 to 140 crore an bodyguard’s budget is 40 cre,don 2 budget 105 cre nw match ur collectn duffers

      • please make one movie with the same budget, make salman the hero of the film and take a medium story, then come again with your nonsense topic of 120 cr movie and all that. Salman did make a film with 80 cr budget and that was a disaster cause salman can’t act at all. Though the movie has good story. Big budget movies are not for Salman. Imagine Salman without remakes, One movie is appreciated which is Dabbang. Unfortunately he did act in that movie. Movie without his bakwas vaigiri will be super flop. Tell him to act on some good movie to prove that he is really an actor. He is not made to be a good actor but to be an entertainer. Somehow Boby darling is also an entertainer. See 3 idiots, the movie do not actually have any budget without aamir khan is the highest grosser of all time. Cause that movie has something for audience. Do not compare with Salman who depend on one kind of movie. Take Aamir khan Every movie is different, Saharukh Khan, he tried every kind of role like, Coach in Chak De India,In Darr dark lover, Anzam Vivien, Badsha Comedian, Rab ne Bana Di Jodi- Simple Sweet man, and what his font Lover boy. In every chance , Aamir & Srk made great business. Imagine Salman in Chak De India, for sure he will appear as suckman in your dream. Don’t mind, Please accept the fact that Salman can’t act all all. He is an entertainer only.
