    Why the Khans became super stars of Bollywood?

    Though the term 'Khans of Bollywood' generally mean leading male actors of Bollywood having 'Khan' as their surname but specifically it means the trio Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Salman Khan. They are not related to each other and are of same group. That way the legendary thespian Dilip Kumar is also a Khan, his original name being Yusuf Khan. The other famous Bollywood Khans are Saif Ali Khan and Irfan Khan.

    To get a glimpse of the success of Khans, some of the films of 1000 crore club are as follows -

    Dangal - 2112 crores worldwide, Salman Khan
    Mughal-e-Azam - 2000 crores worldwide, Dilip Kumar (Yusuf Khan)
    Hum Aapke Hain Koun - 1316 crore worldwide, Salman Khan
    Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge - 1087 crores worldwide - Shahrukh Khan

    May be by keeping Khan as surname, they get the tag of world wide recognition from Muslim youth who support and see the films without fail. That is why they are getting fame and money.

    The film viewers liked their acting talent. As film stars, they are liked all over the country and the world. This is the only reason that they became superstars of the film industry.

    I agree with Mr. Mohan. This unhealthy trend started in Mumbai film-industry since the early nineties when criminal money first came into film-financing.

    The Khans are superstars because the filmgoers like their performance and not because of anything else. If Dilip Kumar was a sought-after star, it was simply because of his acting capability. Let us have good movies and good actors.

    The responses by Mohan and Partha are totally in bad taste and we should not be guided by such mean thoughts. It is a shame! Can we imagine another Ustad Bismillah Khan or Ustad Zakir Hussain? Let us not be generally guided by the name tag please; let us learn to respect and love a piece of art as it is.

    The dirty politics of Khans is well-known in Mumbai film industry. All the aware people know how and Akshay Kumar misses film-awards year after year. They all know how Hrithik Roshan's promising career has been curtailed.

    Some people don't bother to acknowledge the truth.

    Further, Bismillah Khan and Zakir Hussein should not be brought here, because criminal money has not been invested in Indian classical music.

    I am surprised how the author has forgotten the millennium star Amitabh Bachchan who belong to his state and created a new chapter in Hindi film stardom. He was not a Khan! How come we forget Devanand the ever green superstar in his own time and the Rajesh Khanna who too were Super stars. The Rajendra Kumar, whose nick name was 'Jubilee Kumar' because his most of the movie were super duper hit thus he got that nick name. How come we forget the showman and actor Raj Kapoor?

    The list is too long of the super stars who were not Khans! However, after the entry of Shahrukh, Salman and Amir Khan, the khan title become famous not because they belong to some particular religion but simple the hard work they did to achieve the stardom. An actor is beyond then any religion and people are fans of all different groups and zone.

    Now, the stars which are making on their way Ranbir Kapoor, the Tiger Shroff, Arjun Kapoor and the most latest Ranvir Singh. In these list there is no Khan!

    Categorising people itself a not good thing more then when they are Indian films stars.

    The film industry is different and music expertise is different. Music is divine and even animals also will enjoy music. I never like to compare these two areas. Cinema industry is very notorious for very unwanted acts and bad practices.
    Khan's are very good talented people not only in acting and in many other areas also. All those put together they have become very popular. There are many fans for them all over the world. The cine goers will only see them acting on screen only. This trio is very well known for their acting skills also

    always confident

    We are looking at their good times but if we go back & look at life of Shahrukh Khan during his struggling times then this could become the motivation for many others. Today he is said to be the second richest actor in the world but look at his journey & the way he has travelled so far. This never the case that they always showed up with the hit movies but there are flops also.

    Politics is a different case & entertainment is different.

    As per published media reports, the following is a list of richest Indian actors together with their net worth -

    1. Shahrukh Khan - $600 Million
    2. Amitabh Bachchan - $425 Million
    3. Salman Khan - $230 Million
    4. Karan Johar - $200 Million
    5. Saif Ali Khan - $140 Million
    6. Kamal Haasan - $100 Million

    Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.

    Most of these film stars have become superstars because of their hard work in their early life. People like their movies and their acting skills and that's why they have been successful in the film industry. When people become successful it is true that we people will have egos and frustration of not becoming like them. This happens to all kind of people and only a few people can become great actors and if they have done through their normal acting skills, then it is good for their career. I don't know anything about the underworld or any black money affecting the Bollywood industry. Earlier I have heard that Dawood Ibrahim had a voice over the Bollywood industry and he was the person who recommends the name of the actress to the projects.

    Not only khans each and every individual which belongs to film industry are reputed peoples. Everybody knows them not in India but also in foreign countries. Acting and entertain their fans and million of peoples is all about in films. Acting is not that easy everyone's might think. Khans and each actor/actress are in film industry because of their hard work. Likewise, cricketers are also very famous. Actually in every profession person needs to work hard because without giving hundred percent to the profession nothing person can achieve.
