Ever since the release of Shahrukh Khan’s magnum opus Ra. One, we have observed that the movie is compared with Salman Khan’s Bodyguard at every possible juncture. Before the release, everyone was wondering whether Ra. One could out do the business of Bodyguard (which is the 2nd biggest grosser ever, right behind Aamir Khan’s 3 idiots) or not. On the day 1, Ra. One could not cross the collection record of Bodyguard for day 1! Soon, it was projected that Ra. One wouldn’t be able to match the total collection of Bodyguard! However, more drama was awaiting as the next 2 days witnessed such a surge that Ra. One managed to outdo the third day total of Bodyguard! And the box office battle still continues and the Ra. One Vs Bodyguard discussion is here to stay, for a while, especially if our box office report page discussions are anything to go by. It’s time to run a poll and see which film emerges as the absolute public favourite, isn’t it? Yes, with that thought, we are about to begin our poll number 9 right now. It’s the 9th mega poll in the series and click here to see previous 8 mega polls.
Why so much comparison between Ra. One and Bodyguard?
1) Both released the same year and both are vying for the biggest hit of 2011 title. Although the BO verdict will be clear in a week’s time, it would still be interesting to see which film wins the face-off on this public poll.
2) Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan are not known as best of friends and so are their fans. It’s all about who is ruling Bollywood with their star power and charisma – both want to be right at the top ruling Bollywood. And Ra. One and Bodyguard are extremely important in their repertoire. But then, their rivalry also made way for fierce competition, which has helped the industry to thrive beyond we could imagine.
