Both are something else entirely... But I would rate the second as better,

During those 5 BBs Salman was really the only thing that was going big in bollywood!
And the other record is better because Amir and SRk chipped in and after that as well you have BB, PRDP and Sultan

In first option only Dabangg was remembered but in 2nd option BB & Sultan are remembered ..

Both are special in their own ways but I shall take option 1. Before dabangg, amongst fans/neutrals etc Salman was going through a terrible patch. Dabangg started it and in those 2 years the craze was something else. To come back from such a low.....is incredible.

This post is solely about Megastar Salman. I can't understand why the fcuk those people are chanting here whose favorite star can't ensure even 5cr opening on Diwali!!! Arre bewakufo apne auqaat me raho aur jaake Shahid Kapur and Arjun Kapur fans se lado.

answered by Unit Manager (34.9k points)

Yes,but that got him recognition and national award. And u have to go all the way back to single screen era almost 30 years back to prove Salman is bigger... Raakh was a small offbeat not so commercial film. Comparing with MAMK which is out and out diwali entertainer staring Salman is foolishness. Isn't it?


If u can go 10 years back then WTH I can't go 30 years back??? And FYI, I was talking about present but it's you who went to past to prove the fake dominance of so called ace.


not 10, 8 years back with a full fledge diwali movie coz u brought same diwali here...


Oh toh Diwali-Diwali ki baat hai and koi chahe kitna bhi pichhe jaye koi baat nhi... Fine. Salman's Diwali release MAMK collected 1.7cr on first day inspite of 3 way clash. But Aamir's solo Diwali release Raja Hindustani collected only 0.7cr on opening day... #Difference.
