POLL 1: AAMIR, SALMAN, SHAH RUKH



Hello everyone,

This blog is an ongoing experiment for me. As you may have noticed, once every few months, I’ve been putting up a poll here on sundry film-related subjects. But now I’ve decided use the poll element on this platform more actively and frequently as a tool for research for various articles. Sometimes I may quote the poll in an article, sometimes I may just use it for my reference. Thank you in advance to those of you who enthusiastically participate.

Here are the results of the poll conducted last month soon after the release of Chennai Express. The question I asked was:

WHO IS THE BEST ACTOR OF THE THREE KHANS?

Not “the biggest star”, not “the one with the most box-office success”, but the “best actor”.

Here’s how you voted:

37.5% of you voted for Aamir Khan as the best actor of the three Khans

37.5%, that’s an equal number, voted for Shah Rukh Khan

25% voted for Salman Khan

The question that intrigues me is this: does this mean that a majority of online film-goers think Aamir and SRK are better actors than Salman? Or does this mean Salman’s fans are less active on the blogosphere, or on Facebook and Twitter where I announced the poll? Interesting.

Thank you for being part of my effort to understand my readers, the film world and the blogosphere better.

The next poll is already up. Do cast your vote.

Warm regards,

Anna

  2. Regarding your query about Salman fans being less active let me put it straight. My favorite actor is Salman but I voted for Aamir because your question was who is the best actor, not your favorite actor.

  3. Your theory is very interesting and quite likely true, but I would like to believe that your audience has voted for Shah Rukh because he is *actually* a wonderful actor, albeit one who has somehow lost his way (or chosen a path I don't agree with).

    I now follow and agree with your reviews by default and am genuinely disappointed when I can't find a particular film on your blog. I only wish you would review *every* movie you've seen (and I'm sure you've seen quite a few).

    Cheers!
