Nominees are selected on the basis of their star power, charisma and box office performance. As in the case of The King Of Bollywood poll, we have 4 nominees. Let’s take a closer look at the nominees below (in alphabetic order).
Finally, after 10 days of intense voting which saw close to 1 lakh votes coming in, we have our winner for the annual ‘Who is the new king of Bollywood’ poll!
It’s none other than Shahrukh Khan! He defeated Salman Khan (who was leading in the interim) for less than 1% votes (for 832 votes!). It was one of the biggest polls on our website and we saw maximum number of voters this year. Both Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan managed to collect more than 41, 000 votes each! In that regard, both are kings of Bollywood! Yet, we have a winner and that’s King Khan himself!
Shahrukh Khan – King of Bollywood!
Shahrukh Khan won the title for the 3rd consecutive year! He won the poll in 2012 and 2013 with 65% and 57% votes respectively. This year he won with 46% votes, a clear indication that Salman Khan is giving tough competition to Shahrukh Khan and that Shahrukh Khan needs to be careful with his throne! He could be dethroned anytime if the voting percentage trend is anything to go by!
Well, we’ll find that out next year around the same time.
2014 saw number of hit movies. However, we haven’ seen a blockbuster yet. We all expected Salman Khan’s Jai Ho to be the blockbuster of the year but the movie disappointed viewers with its box office performance. Though it is the biggest grosser yet, it has collected only 116 crores nett in India, whereas few of the top 5 ‘all time grossers’ are in the 200 crore club already. So, it was a much disappointing performance.
The 100 crore movies of the year are: Jai Ho, Holiday & 2 States. (Jai Ho & Holiday crossed 110 crore mark whereas 2 States just crossed 100 crore mark)
Salman Khan is voted as the most desirable Bollywood actor of 2014 with 32% votes – congrats! Shahrukh Khan has given a tough fight as he was leading the poll right from day 1 until the last day. But in the final lap Salman Khan overtook 2 time champion Shahrukh and emerged as the winner for the first time in the most desirable poll. Shahrukh Khan collected 30% votes!
Most Desirable Poll Winners
Salman Khan, the eternal bachelor of Bollywood is known for his golden heart and humor sense. No need to add that he is a handsome. He’s got a good body as well. These qualities may have influenced the voters to vote for him! Salman Khan is the undisputed king of Indian box office as he has given 6 100 crore hits in a row since 2010.
This is Salman’s 2nd only win on HindiFilmNews.com after winning ‘Sexiest Bachelor’ title in 2011. Salman Khan was in 3rd place last year. Last year’s winner Shahid Kapoor had to be satisfied with 16% votes! Better luck next time Shahid!
Hrithik Roshan (4th) and Aamir Khan (5th) made it in to the top 5. In the top 10 we also have Sidharth Malhotra(6th), John Abraham(7th), Ajay Devgn(8th), Ranbir Kapoor(9th) & Vidyut Jamwal(10th). Congrats to all!
Finally after 6 days of voting, Deepika Padukone is voted as the Star Of The Year 2013 (female). Katrina Kaif gave a tough fight as she lost the poll for less than 50 votes which is a rare phenomenon on our website! In fact, Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone were on the number 1 position several times on the last day of the poll indicating a very tough competition. Better luck next time Katrina Kaif fans!
Coming to our winner Deepika Padukone, she truly deserved this title as she had 4 back to back 100 crore hits in 2013 including Race 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Ramleela Goliyon Ka Raslaala. She was also appreciated for her performances in these movies. These 4 movies grossed more than 500 crores in Indian box office and that is a very tough record to break! So, after a very rewarding year professionally, Deepika Padukone takes our star of the year 2013 female title as well!
Finally, after 7 days and close to 30,000 votes, Shahrukh Khan is voted as the star of the year 2013. This is the second consecutive win for Shahrukh Khan as he won in last year as well. It was a close competition as Salman Khan gave a very close and tough competition until the final hour. Salman Khan lost the poll only for 1.5% votes (exactly 447 votes difference!)
Thanks to everyone for participating in the poll and we congratulate Shahrukh Khan for winning the poll!
Shahrukh Khan had a stellar year in 2013 as his movie Chennai Express broke several box office records at the time of its release. So, he is indeed a deserving winner!
After 20 days long poll, we have the winner for our ‘The Biggest Female Star In Last 20 Years (1993-2013) poll.
Kajol has won the poll with 20% votes. Huge Congrats to Kajol as she truly deserves this title. She mesmerized us with her brilliant acting prowess and inimitable star power. Kajol never gave much importance to her star power. She never tried to be in the rate race for No. 1 spot. She rejected movie which she didn’t want to be a part of. Yet, top film makers approached her with great scripts and great roles. Kajol is currently taking a break from movies. She is a mother of two and a wife. Yet, fans are keenly awaiting for her return to movies. Let’s hope that her close friend Karan Johar will come up with something for this superbly talented star.
Shahrukh Khan is voted as the King Of Bollywood two years in a row! Shahrukh Khan won the poll with a huge margin of 57% votes after a 10 days long poll. And it once again proved that Shahrukh Khan is the King of online space as well.
And we will come back the same poll next year and thanks to all those who have participated in it.
