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.
