Shah Rukh Khan shows Priyanka Chopra the exit door from this list – Shah Rukh Khan takes the top spot while Priyanka Chopra is nowhere to be seen.
Now that’s a shocker! Shah Rukh Khan has been named the top star of Indian Cinema in 2017 by IMDb and he has ousted Priyanka Chopra to claim the top spot. In fact, she is nowhere to be found on the list. Yes, it has come as a major surprise to us. In 2016, Shah Rukh Khan was on the number 3 position while PC had claimed the first position. IMDb had credited her for her rise not only in Hollywood but in the regional cinema space in India too. Since Baywatch released this year, PC’s popularity had grown many folds in 2017 for sure. But with the film making no major noise and nothing else creating any furore, the actress has completely slipped out of the list. Now that is a little amusing. Despite all that, Priyanka has always been in the news for many things. Be it her UNICEF campaigns or her shoot for the third season of Quantico, the actress never stopped hitting headlines. If not at the top, she could have been part of the list.
As for Shah Rukh Khan, do we even need to tell you why he moved from third spot to right at the top! That man can make news even when he doing nothing. 2017 in fact had two releases from him and despite one being a major flop, his popularity did not get affected at all. That’s the charm of this Khan. His birthday alone is one of the most talked about subject of the year. So we are only happy that he is on top. This would perhaps help him give us better movies in future. The second spot went to Aamir Khan followed by Salman Khan. Check out the list right here…

Interestingly, three spot went to Baahubali 2 cast which means the film has made stars out of people who were only big down South. Katrina Kaif was on the tenth place in 2016 and thus she maintained it this year as well. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Nargis Fakhri, Deepika Padukone and Nimrat Kaur were booted from the list who claimed top spots last year.
