hmmmm......
his next target will be salman's 7 back to back clean flop/disaster (no below average here) within less than 2 years or 691 days....Love released on 15 nov 1991 and chandramukhi released on 22 oct 1993...

or

6 back to back below 50 lacs footfall (on this forum chappals are more important) within same time periods.

@Ajay what u think which one would be easier for srk to break the long standing record of salman..

between where is ur self proclaimed data about HGOTY (1991) and HGOT decade (80s) after Boi's article on phool aur kaante and kranti...

@Bhavik Patel......calm down....this thread is all about not giving hit movie for longer period.... Not about any opening record or stardom...so just reply based on topic....
second thing no question about amitabh's stardom...but ur claim is too exaggerated. u are attributed entire decade to him based on record opener in 90, 91 and 92.. Big B was biggest star (in terms of opening) till 1992..his last movie was khuda gawah as a superstar (movie riding on his shoulder as well as sridevi) which took bumper opening after that he was second fiddle to govinda in BMCM and character role in HKK. but look at his solo mritudata, suryavansham, lal badshah or any multi starrer with lesser star like kohram, aks etc had just average or below average opening...khans are different stature at this moment they are not doing any character role or second fiddle to current superstars like ranveer, varun or Ranbeer kapoor...look at their future project...
SRK and Akshay Kumar during these two periods rarely achieved anything extraordinary be it opening-wise or anything else
so what amitabh has achieved in 1992-1998? atleas srk has a some success like dilwale (worldwide second highest), fan good content with lot of accolades, Raees good commercial hit made good money, dear zindagi good commercial hit, jjhms-worst, zero-experiment with good performance but huge loses...isnt this achievement better than BigB's 1992-1998? who neither had commercial success nor praiseworthy performances.
5 record openers in his worst phase (90s = one decade) whereas all Khans have 6 record openers in their whole career of 30 years
Sometime statistic dont give correct picture...if he gave 5 record opener then y he forced to do second fiddle role and character role to current superstars of that time when he was just 50s, other hand all khans are doing central role and getting mighty project in their 50s and this will continue till another 5 years at least. look at Dilip kumar filmography at age of 60, he had central role in karma, vidhata, saudagar, izzatdar, KAA because producer trust him and never hesitate to cast him in central role in their mighty project.
And no producer wanted to cast him as a solo in their mighty project as a lead hero to invite heavy losses for the sake of record opening. actually his peak has over after shahenshah in true sense, after that needed support so started to work with then hot favorite mithun in GJS, Agneepath or Govinda, Rjnikanth in Hum and accept to work in khuda gawah when his co star have more footage than him but in parallel he churning flop after flop as solo with ajooba, akela, indrajeet, jadugar, main azzad hoon etc. only one silver lining in between was Aaj ka Arjun.

I didn't attribute him the whole decade, but no one has given as many record openers as him in this much less amount of movies and with such pathetic content.
He is playing second field, but has an impact on the box-office performance of the movie. TOH without Amitabh Bachchan wouldn't have taken such a grand opening which was 1/3 of its total. He was 56 at the time of BMCM and suffered from bankruptcy. He adapted himself according to the trend and made a comeback in the way he found right. Then, he gradually got back his prominence on low levels. From 2000-2005, he still was giving top 2/top 3 movies and he was 58/63 years old. 2 with SRK, Kaante (multi-starrer with Sanjay) and with his own son.
Of course, nowadays, they maintain themselves more. But that doesn't put them in the league of Amitabh who used to do more movies. By 84, he had the same amount of hit, the same number of movies and the same number of successes like SRK in 30 years. Longetivity-wise, he has entered his 6th decade and has more upcoming movies than SRK at the age of 78 (be it second field or character roles). Badlaa or Pink solely rode on his shoulders for the "hit" tag. Which other stars other than Amitabh Bachchan has been getting this many good projects. Dilip Kumar was very choosy which helped him stay longer (6 decades).
Funny you're taking from 1992-1998, whereas if you take the whole decade, he has given record opener in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1994 (trash movie), 1998 (with Govinda), 1999 (though co-starring Ajay Devgn).

1990- Aaj Ja Arjun (2+ crore footfalls ) - Super-hit - 3rd HGOTY
Agneepath (1.25 crore footfalls) - 4th HGOTY - National award for best award
1991- Hum (2.25 crore ff) - 2nd HGOTY - Best actor award (3rd)
1992- Khuda Gawah (1.5/1.6 crore footfalls) - 3rd HGOTY (overseas blockbuster) -- underperformance
1993 - Nil
1994 - Insanyat (1+ crore footfalls ) - 11 HGOTY - delayed movie
1995 - Nil
1996 - Nil
1997 - Flop year
1998 - BMCH (4th HGOTY) clash with KKHH and record opener, Majob Saab (8th HGOTY)
1999 - Flop year, but gave Sooryavansham whose recall value is bigger than any movie of 90s.

top 3 - 3 movies
top 5 - 5 movies
top 10 - 7 movies

2+ crore footfalls - 2
1.5+ crore footfalls - 4
1+ crore footfalls - 9
With this, nowadays, any newcomer can become a "Superstar" according to media, a "Star" according to Trade and be amongst top 5 star of his decade (without opening)

He went bankrupt with ABCL, that's why he suffered a lot, due to which he was first constrained to take any role offered to him. His movies content wasn't supportive in the long term, hence his star value decreased. Check out list of highest paid indian actor. He was highest paid till 94/95 despite being retired.
His peak (Megastardom) ended after Mard, but his superstardom never ended till the early 2000s.
Funny how you're putting Mithun Chakraborty at the top who was second to Amitabh and called the "Amitabh Bachchan of the poor".

---> Mithun Chakraborty ka position.
Sridevi, the "lady Amitabh" ?
Ajooba managed to break-even and was an overseas success with Jaadugar, Akayla (7th HGOTY of 1991), Indrajeet and Main Azaad Hoon being real disasters. Main Azaad Hoon is one the finest movies made by tinnu anand like Agneepath (Mukul S.Anand), but unfortunately released in the wrong era. Now, people appreciate it.
Aisi kaunsi movie hai SRK ki 2010s mein jisko positive word-of-mouth mila hai ?
The most watched celebrity in the lockdown is Amitabh Bachchan, why not Rajnikant or Govinda ? Jabki he was playing second field to them, right ?
Pehle SRK ko bolo Salman Khan or Akshay Kumar se compete kare.
Dilip Kumar was known as the greatest actor, but never enjoyed Superstardom.

I think u haven't slept for last 2 days, u have tried to prove ur point is right by hook and crook. are bhai maine 1992-1998 ke performance ki baat kiya tune to pura kachcha chitta likh dala. anyway i ll reply
but no one has given as many record openers as him in this much less amount of movies and with such pathetic content
again i have to reply same thing. all his record came in 90, 91, 92 only as a superstar, BMCM it is all about David govinda combo who had excellent track record before that now don't prove me that same combo didnt have record opening before. some time some movies get huge buzz before its release without even top 3 stars in it. for ex. LOC, Kaante, Dus. but replace any star from these movies still they will have similar opening...and this is not because of inclusion of particular star
He is playing second field, but has an impact on the box-office performance of the movie
no impact....he didnt rewarded with in any big solo movies which was riding on his shoulder, either he has settle with character role in big movies like mohabbate, k3g or lead role in small movies likes aks, dev, black, virudh, ek ajnabee etc

TOH without Amitabh Bachchan wouldn't have taken such a grand opening which was 1/3 of its tota
Look like Bachchan fans are still living in 70s and 80s..he gave big opening with reigning superstars of it time, but have disastrous opening with solo or lesser co stars shamitabh, satyagrah, arakshan, teen patti, dev, ek ajnabee, run etc
Then, he gradually got back his prominence on low levels
yes correct but it is on low level

Of course, nowadays, they maintain themselves more. But that doesn't put them in the league of Amitabh who used to do more movies
this is same thing srk salman fans will tell ranbeer, ranveer fans after 25 years.
By 84, he had the same amount of hit, the same number of movies and the same number of successes like SRK in 30 years
so what is difference other than no of years when both have same amount success from same no. of movies.
From 2000-2005, he still was giving top 2/top 3 movies and he was 58/63 years old
with current superstars of that time, but disastrous opening comes when movie rides on his shoulder or less supporting star like dev, boom, hum kisise kam nahi, virudh, black, bagbhan, ek ajnabee, family, hum kaun hai etc
Longetivity-wise, he has entered his 6th decade
srk is 55 years old how will entered in his 6th decade even if he start from age of one...keep this thread alive we will discuss after 20 years (2041)
Badlaa or Pink solely rode on his shoulders for the "hit" tag
but that is not a superstar...we have to for another 20 years when srk give same sort of success . 10cr budget ki movie banao aur 50 cr per hit tag pao.

Dilip Kumar was very choosy which helped him stay longer (6 decades)
but he was getting central in big budget movies like karma, vidhatata, saudagar when younger stars had less screen space to perform this was not case in bigb in age of his mid 60s.

Funny you're taking from 1992-1998, whereas if you take the whole decade
Read carefully, my reply was based on topic to creater of the post but u r the one who came with some different logic.

record opener in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1994 (trash movie), 1998 (with Govinda), 1999 (though co-starring Ajay Devgn).

1990- Aaj Ja Arjun (2+ crore footfalls ) - Super-hit - 3rd HGOTY
Agneepath (1.25 crore footfalls) - 4th HGOTY - National award for best award
1991- Hum (2.25 crore ff) - 2nd HGOTY - Best actor award (3rd)
1992- Khuda Gawah (1.5/1.6 crore footfalls) - 3rd HGOTY (overseas blockbuster) -- underperformance
1993 - Nil
1994 - Insanyat (1+ crore footfalls ) - 11 HGOTY - delayed movie
1995 - Nil
1996 - Nil
1997 - Flop year
1998 - BMCH (4th HGOTY) clash with KKHH and record opener, Majob Saab (8th HGOTY)
1999 - Flop year, but gave Sooryavansham whose recall value is bigger than any movie of 90s.
top 3 - 3 movies
top 5 - 5 movies
top 10 - 7 movies
2+ crore footfalls - 2
1.5+ crore footfalls - 4
1+ crore footfalls - 9

bhai ab muze srk k movie ginwane padenge 2010k mnik se lekar zero tak...for ff and HGOTY contact our forum expert Ajay, vivek rai and nitesh singh.chalo wiase hum ke 2.25cr ff kahan se mile bhai, it wont be more than 1.75cr aur khuda gawah ke 1.25-1.4 max. u r living in fool paradise.

He went bankrupt with ABCL, that's why he suffered a lot, due to which he was first constrained to take any role offered to him
ok...but being as a phenomenon star of 90s and 5 record opener behind him why producers were not willing to offered him lead role in their big budget movies. do u think producers were fool not wanted to cash his phenomenon popularity (as per u).
Check out list of highest paid indian actor. He was highest paid till 94/95 despite being retired
Yeah srk too listed in forbes list frequently in his bad phase, this doesn't work.

His peak (Megastardom) ended after Mard, but his superstardom never ended till the early 2000s.
you are correct about ur first sentence, but his superstardom lasted till 1992....

Funny how you're putting Mithun Chakraborty at the top who was second to Amitabh and called the "Amitabh Bachchan of the poor
I never said it, I only said amitabh's superstardom required current hot favorite of that time to give support to his sliding career.
second to Amitabh and called the "Amitabh Bachchan of the poor".
many times I also said same thing but people here dont agree. but ur sentence is wrong. he was referred as amitabh of poor producer. but it changed after 1985 when all big director wanted to work with him form ramesh sippy, JP dutta, sultan Ahmed, N chandra, M. Desai, prakash Mehra, k. bapayya, umesh mehra, rak kumar kohli, shakti samantha etc.

Mithun Chakraborty ka position.

that is his humility. if reporter ask same thing to ranveer sing or any current superstars about srk/salman they will also have similar respect about their seniors, nothing new
Sridevi, the "lady Amitabh" ?
more than that, she was only PAN india superstar of india....
Ajooba managed to break-even and was an overseas success
biggest disastrous in his sliding career, second was MAH a...accept the reality. 1st week collection of ajooba in mumbai was 69% when his flop movies used akyela, indrajeet to manage above 90 in mumbai city.

Akayla (7th HGOTY of 1991
Raees 6 HGOTY, does this matter

Main Azaad Hoon is one the finest movies made by tinnu anand like Agneepath (Mukul S.Anand)
this happns with every one, i can say AAA, dilse swades came in wrong era

Now, people appreciate i
If u find those people let me know, i want touch their feet

The most watched celebrity in the lockdown is Amitabh Bachchan, why not Rajnikant or Govinda ? Jabki he was playing second field to them, right ?
I didnt said this thing for Hum, it is for BMCM. but Rajnikanth (down south) and Govinda bollywood has good star value were just good support to hum

Pehle SRK ko bolo Salman Khan or Akshay Kumar se compete kare.
tum agaye typical fan war per

Dilip Kumar was known as the greatest actor, but never enjoyed Superstardom.
ask older generation, bumper opening bihind saudagar, vidhata, karma was Dilip kumar at age of 60 plus age. infact izzatdar, Kanoon apna apna had excllent opening. now dont say that k3g, mohbbate, TOH because of Amitabh.
