STAR RANKING (Male); February 2014

Our Star Ranking for Month February 2014 is ready. The star rankings are based on box office figures for the ONLY first weekend (First Three Days). The first weekend is the biggest barometer for star power, from Monday the box office collection is dependent more on how the public takes to a film rather than star power. The rankings are based purely on opening weekend collections and do not take anything else into account.  


1. Extended/Special appearances and delayed films are not included. Films that have a smaller release than normal are also not included as they have little chance of getting near thresholds.  

2. Threshold figures are set at a rate which would be regarded as a good weekend for that respective time.  

3. This time we have changed the criteria little a bit. Now, the films of any star released in last 3 years are taken into account. So in this month, All releases of stars from February 2011 to January 2014 are included. We consider only the average points of all obtained points of last 3 years' releases.

STAR RANKING; February 2014

10- Ritesih Deshmukh

Riteish might have not got the attention from media which he deserve but he has proven his worth with films like 'Kya Super Cool Hain Hum' & 'Grand Masti'. Best gainer for him is 'Housefull 2'. He has some good projects in future such as Dharma Production's 'Dostana 2', Ekta Kapoor's 'The Villain' etc.

Evergreen Anil Kapoor is still in top ten despite the arriving of a lot new faces. He was at no. 10 last month and at no. 8 this month only because of change in criteria of star ranking. He has achieved -50 points with 'Race 2' being the best gainer for Anil Kapoo

7- Ajay Devgn

Nothing has gone Ajay Devgn's way after the success of 'Son Of Sardar' in 2012. In 2013, he was seen in two films and both ('Himmatwala' & 'Satyagraha') sinked at box office. 'Bol Bachchan' and 'Son Of Sardar' helped Devgn-boy to achieve 7th position in star ranking with -48 points. 

6- Abhishek Bachchan
