In a country like ours where over a billion people are mad about a handful of stars, it is impossible to rank stars based on subjective criteria. So, in September 2012, we launched Times Celebex, a monthly rating index based on several measurable parameters, including the stars’ Box-Office performance, their ability to stay in the news across media, their brand endorsements and their dominance on social media.
Times Celebex is a scientific and robust ranking system based on data collected from 60+ publications and 250+ TV channels, making it the first ever ranking system for Bollywood. While we report the monthly data every subsequent month, we present to you for the first time the annual compiled data for the year 2013. This data objectively ranks the stars in order of their stardom as objectively as can be done.
Katrina is by far the most stylish actress we have in the Hindi film industry. What is remarkable about her topping the list is how despite not being an Indian, and not even knowing the Hindi language when she started, she has made it right to the top. Be it for her looks, her mind or her hard work, her success proves that Bollywood is a truly inclusive industry, where if you have the talent and the willpower, nothing can stop you from reaching its peak. Apart from Katrina, we present to you the list of the top 50 actresses in Bollywood based on the data of 2013. We will present to you the data of 2014 soon after the year finishes.
