Recently Boxofficeindia answered a question about which Khan dominated the 90s Decade.
Many Salman Fans were not happy with the answer because they feel Salman Khan did better than Shahrukh Khan in 90s. But that's completely wrong. This confusion is because of Fan made sites like Indicine & Koimoi. They compare Fake stats & Manipulated Verdicts without any kind of Knowledge.
Shahrukh Khan Debuted in 1992 almost 4 Years after Salman Khan.
There was a huge difference between Shahrukh Khan & Salman Khan in 90s not only in Initial pull or popularity but Success Ratio, Blockbuster Ratio, Fan Following and everything else contributing to the position of an artist.
Madhuri Dixit was the biggest Female Superstar in the first half of the decade & Karisma Kapoor in the second half.
Salman Khan got majority of success with these two Supreme actresses. When these actresses were on peak.
Salman Khan didn't got much credit in Hum Aapke hain kaun (1994). He was completely overshadowed by Madhuri Dixit. In 1994 Salman Khan did 4 films 3/4 became washout Disasters with Washout initials & Hum Aapke Hain Kaun become huge All Time Blockbuster & Record grosser. After that in 1995 January Opinion Poll results Salman Khan got just 1% (80) Votes. On the other hand Madhuri Dixit alone got 52% Votes in Favorite heroine category. That was the domination of Madhuri Dixit in Hum Aapke Hain Kaun. Madhuri Dixit also won Filmfare for her performance in Hum Aapke Hain Kaun.
Salman Khan's Best years in 90s was Year 1998 & 1999. He managed to achieve second spot #BOI Ranking in these years.
Year 1999 was Record year for Salman Khan. He did 5 films in year 1999.
3 Multistarrers became Big Hits & 2 Solo films failed at the box office.
Most of his Solo lead films bombed badly at the box office in 90s.
On the other hand Shahrukh Khan had huge Fan Following, only second to Amitabh Bachchan in the first half of 90s and Biggest in the second half.
Shahrukh Khan used to command huge initials and scored highest number of Blockbusters in 90s.
Shahrukh Khan had huge Star Power Average in 90s. But Shahrukh Khan got Stardom in 1993 so he got only 7.5 Years to perform on the other hand Sunny Deol was well established star even before 1990.
That is the reason Sunny Deol have maximum points in 90s. But Shahrukh Khan had much better Star Power Average in 7 Years.
Sunny Deol had 7260 Points in 10 Years with Average Star Power of 726.
On the other hand Shahrukh Khan had 5860 Points in just 7 Years with Average Star Power of 837.
Decade belongs to Sunny Deol because of More Years & More Points but if we compare 1992-1999 Phase then Shahrukh Khan was Margin ahead from Sunny Deol.
Shahrukh Khan started his career on Positive note. And became huge Star with Blockbusters like Baazigar & Darr in 1993.
In 1995 Shahrukh Khan scored more than 10 Crore Footfalls in a single calendar year that is 1000 Crore+ Adjusted Nett in current era.
In 1997 he scored 7.50 Crore Footfalls & scored 4 back to back successful films in a single year.
