    Who Is The Biggest Superstar Of The Decade?

    RANKED: Khans, Kumar or Devgn, Who Is The Biggest Superstar Of The Decade?

    When it comes to Bollywood, no matter how much we love the new crop of stars, things will mostly revolve around name. We are talking about the biggest superstars of the country which,of course, includes Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar And Ajay Devgn. New and old heroes have come and gone but these three have maintained their reign over the kingdom of Bollywood for more about 3 decades now and are showing no sign of stopping.

    No, it is not our bias or nostalgia that is saying this but the numbers also confirm that Khans, Kumar and Devgn are the biggest earners at the box-office and no one even comes close to their numbers. But what about the competition between them? Well, hits and flops, ups and downs, their careers have seen everything and in the last 10 years things have become even more dynamic. But if we check the total box-office earnings of their films in the last decade, here is who emerges as the ultimate champion of the champions.

    Rank 5: Aamir Khan

    RANKED: Khans, Kumar or Devgn, Who Is The Biggest Superstar Of The Decade?

    While this might come as a shocker,but  it is true. Total earnings from all of Aamir Khan’s films in the last decade comes to Rs. 1290 crores. It is strange dichotomy given his film Dangal is currently the highest grosser of Bollywood. However, the discrepancy is probably due to the fact that Aamir Khan does much less films than all of the other superstars on the list.

    Rank 4: Shah Rukh Khan

    RANKED: Khans, Kumar or Devgn, Who Is The Biggest Superstar Of The Decade?

    While his career has been on a slump in the last few years, Shah Rukh Khan has always been and will be one of the ultimate superstars in Bollywood. Also, Shah Rukh has usually been the one whose films have brought in massive overseas collections. In the last ten years, the total earning of all Shah Rukh Khan films combined comes up to about Rs. 1360 crores.

    Rank 3: Ajay Devgn

    When it comes to big box-office successes, Ajay Devgn is perhaps one of the most bankable stars in Bollywood. Even this year the man has given back-to-back successes and has a loyal fan-base that is unique to him. In the 10 years, the total earnings of all his films have been Rs. 1740 crores.

    Rank 2: Akshay Kumar

    RANKED: Khans, Kumar or Devgn, Who Is The Biggest Superstar Of The Decade?

    The original Khiladi of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar has truly defined and redefined superstardom in his own unique ways. In fact, it is difficult to remember the number of flops that he has given in the last few years. Any Akshay Kumar movie almost comes with a guarantee and the box-office figures seem to support the claim. In the last 10 years, the total summation of his films’ box-office earnings is a whopping 2710 crores.

    Rank 1: Salman Khan

    RANKED: Khans, Kumar or Devgn, Who Is The Biggest Superstar Of The Decade?

    You know you are the ultimate king of Bollywood when the even your lowest earning film has grossed over 100 crores. One hardly remembers the last time a Salman Khan film did not create mass hysteria and minted money at the box-office. Even recent downers like Race 3 and Tubelight collected more money than some of the semi-hits of Bollywood. The legions of die-hard Bhai fans make sure that the superstar stays on the top of the number game in Bollywood. Salman Khan’s films in the last one decade have earned about Rs. 2730 crores in total and the upcoming films like Dabangg 3 and Kick 2 might easily take the number to a whopping Rs. 3000 crores
