As the euphoria around the much-anticipated release, Zero, has settled down due to not-so-good feedbacks, the movie is turning out to be another big disappointment from Shah Rukh Khan. And with such average performance of the movie, the heated debate of whether SRK is losing stardom to his contemporary Salman Khan has started arising once again.


The actor who ruled the Bollywood single-handedly during 1990s and 2000s, is sadly, losing his grip at the box office. Shah Rukh Khan, popularly known as King Khan or King of Bollywood, is failing to deliver a blockbuster, for a long time now. In fact, the actor had his last big hit, Chennai Express, in 2013.

Is Shah Rukh Khan Losing His Stardom To Salman Khan, Due To His Fallacious Experimentation?

Talking about the only actor matching SRK’s stature, Salman Khan has raced a way ahead in terms of box office successes. Even the movies like Tubelight and Race 3, which were bashed terribly on the social media and received poor word-of-mouth, crossed the bare minimum mark of 100 crore and 150 crore, respectively. Also, the actor is looking to make a rocking comeback with Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat after Race 3 debacle.


On the other hand, Shah Rukh Khan is trying to experiment with his roles and genres like in Fan, Jab Harry Met Sejal and now Zero. Despite all the efforts, SRK is failing to find the much-needed connect with the audience. All his recent releases including Zero, seems as half-baked attempt which neither satisfied the hunger of either class audience or mass audience.

Two years ago, even the renowned filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, described Shah Rukh’s experimentation as a risk. He said, “Megastar SRK becoming ordinary fan,dwarf etc is as big a same blunder as what Kamal Hasan did to lose his stardom to Rajnikant (Salman Khan)”, as in a tweet.

Now with Saare Jahaan Se Accha, let’s hope that our beloved star gets his much-deserved success.

  1. Don’t write he single handedly ruled the 90s, get your facts right, he didn’t. Salman Khan had more Hits than SRK in the 90s, while actors like Sunny Deol and Govinda were making a mark.

    If you say the 2000 decade, I will agree.

    I hate when it comes to SRK, we have to write nonsense thinking he was the man in the 90s when he wasn’t.

    • And yes 2000 but early 2000… And SRK never ruled box office single handedly even in early 2000… This was again Khiladi Kumar entering the comedy genre and giving hatrick of hits again and again…

  2. Its clearly shows that a Srk fan wrote this article…..But shame is that Trade/Bollywood site like Koimoi approve such article, even though they know that the Facts and Figures tells different story……I challenge the writer of this article if he/she have guts, then prove what they have written, that Srk ruled 90’s……Show me the numbers…..
    I can give real numbers and figures which proves, that Salman was not only on Top in 90’s, but actually he was ruling it with huge margin…..
    I ask Koimoi, check all records and compare Hit ratio, Success Ration, Average Ration of both Actors and see who rule 90…….Yes Srk was on Top in 20’s…..But Salman Ruled 90’s and this this Decade with a huge margin…….
    I hope next time Koimoi won’t publish any such article without proof……Media is a strong medium don’t miss use it….Don’t take away the credit from someone who deserve and work hard for it…….
