Sooryavanshi’s box office collections aren’t just heartwarming for the exhibitors, they’ve emerged as a relief for those who thought theatres will be a second choice for OTT-adapting audiences. But, people showing up in cinema halls at such an early post-pandemic stage has surely garnered some hope for many out there.
It also brings hope to Akshay Kumar’s positioning in our exclusive table of ‘Stars’ Power Index’. A table in which we calculate the ‘star power’ with a tested formula to put perspective into numbers.
Akshay Kumar with Sooryavanshi entering the 100 crore club has earned 100 more points moving really close to Salman Khan. Though there’s still a considerable gap knowing the number of films Khiladi Kumar does per year, one can’t keep the top position for too long.
Salman Khan, with whopping 2500 points is sitting comfortably at the top but this is for the first time in years an actor has been so close to Khan. Akshay Kumar, at the second position with 1800 points, needs a couple of 100-200 crore films to do what no other star has done before.
Here’s How We Calculate Bollywood Star Ranking
- 100 Crs Points: 100 x Number Of Films In The 100 Crore Club
- 200 Crs Points: 200 x Number Of Films In The 200 Crore Club
- 300 Crs Points: 300 x Number Of Films In The 300 Crore Club
- 500 Crs Points: 300 x Number Of Films In The 500 Crore Club
- Overseas Points: 50 x Number Of Films In Top 10 Highest Overseas Grossers
- In Case Of Tie, The Position Is Given Based On The Collections Of The Star’s Respective Film
