Gone are the days when Bollywood industry would have worked only because of the storylines and the songs. But today undoubtedly it's the star presence that matters a lot. Apparently, at the end of the day, it's just the star who captures the audience to the theater.
Most of us think that the Khan's of Bollywood- Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, and Salman Khan are ruling the Bollywood industry by giving back to back blockbusters and entering the 100 Crore club. The fact is, the Khans of Bollywood only do one or two films in a year and the mammoth amount their films earns make us believe that they are the most Bankable Stars of Bollywood. Nevertheless, this isn't the truth. Khans are not the most bankable celebs of Bollywood. Now that will make you think which actor has a huge bank balance. Think Think!
Akshay Kumar, the Rustom of Bollywood is the most Bankable star of Bollywood. Though Akshay's movies may not have entered the 200 Crore club yet, his films release at regular interval of time and earns about 80-90 Crores. Aki gives at least four films in a year, and he makes sure to look that the quantity of films he does, does not affect the quality of films. Whereas the Khans work in one or two movies in a year and earns around 100-200 Crores and that too sometimes go flop. His movies like Gabbar Is Back, Airlift, Brothers, have made around 80 Crores and were super hit at the box office. And when we calculate, Akshay gives back more to the industry. The cherry on the cake is Akshay also makes sure that the producers, distributors, crew members and everyone else make money from the movie.
Wow, Akshay! You're indeed the Khiladi of Bollywood. And we wish Akshay good luck for his upcoming movie Rustom.
