Salman Khan and Shahrukh khan are amongst the most bankable actors of BOLLYWOOD. While there are some fans who love Dabangg and One Man Army attitude of Bhaijaan. There are others who love romance and chocolaty boy image of Shahrukh Khan. So to compare them on the basis of stardom or fan following would be futile.
However,We have tried to make a comparison on the basis of other factors :-
1. ACTING SKILLS: Bhaijaan Vs SRK
Although both actors have done marvelous acting like Salman Khan in Hum aapke hai kaun?, Maine Pyaar Kiya, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Hum Saath Saath Hai, Tere Naam. On the other hand SRK has justified his character in Baazigar, Baadshah, DDLJ, KKHH,Swades,Kabhi Haa Kabhi Naa, Chak De India ! and the list would be incomplete without mentioning Darr.
In recent times it feels that Salman Khan has forgotten to act. Although his movies are still block busters and record breakers (thanks to Bhai’s loyal fans).His movies lack Story , Screen Play and much more which is clearly visible. On the other hand SRK also has done brain less movies like Happy New Year and Chennai Express but acting wise I think it is much better than Salman’s Bodyguard or Ek Tha Tiger.
So in terms of Acting SRK wins the round!
2. WEALTH: Bhaijaan Vs SRK
Although Salman and SRK are earning more money than 90% of the remaining population of our country. It is known to all that SRK is the second richest actor in the world having an estimated assets of 2500 Cr. I guess he is not called KING KHAN without a reason! His marketing skills are hidden to none and this is the reason he was able to recover the amount invested from a BS film like Ra.One also. This certainly does not make Bhaijaan any poor or inferior as the money which he is able to make from one movie is more than anything which a common man would be able to earn in his entire life.
Still financially also SRK wins !
3. CHARISMA : Salman KHan Vs SRK
This is the answer behind why does Salman Khan movies earn so much ?
The Charisma is the reason behind the huge box office collection of Salman Khan movies. He has something in him which attracts the fan towards him and his movies. He mesmerizes people to ignore the Story, Screen Play etc and still consider it as an entertainment film. I don’t think any other actor would be able to recover even the cost of movie such as BODYGUARD. All thanks to Bhai as he made it a huge hit. Although SRK doesn’t lack Charisma as well but I think SALMAN has a different magic on audiences.
P.S. I do not mean to under shadow any actor as both of them are LEGENDS and people may or may not agree with my factors.
