Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt have emerged as the most popular Bollywood stars of 2023 in a new report released by Ormax Media on Sunday.

After delivering three blockbusters — Pathan, Jawan and Dunki — last year, Shah Rukh’s name on top of the list of most popular Bollywood actors doesn’t come as a surprise, while Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar hold the second and third positions, respectively.


Kartik Aaryan, Ranveer Singh, Ajay Devgn, Aamir Khan and Varun Dhawan also find a place among the popular Bollywood male stars. But the recent success of Sandeep Reddy Vanga-helmed Animal didn’t secure Bobby Deol a place on the list, although his entry song Jamal Kudu went on to become a sensation on social media.

Amid the fury of a long line of action movies, Alia’s romcom Rocky Aur Rani kii Prem Kahaani, helmed by Karan Johar, managed to hold its place, securing her the top ranking on the list of most popular Bollywood actresses over Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Alia also made her Hollywood debut with Top Harper’s Netflix spy film Heart of Stone alongside Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan in 2023.

While Shraddha Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Anushka Sharma feature on the list, Tripti Dimri didn’t find a place despite becoming IMDb’s most popular Indian celebrity in the second week of December for her role in Animal.

Animal star Ranbir Kapoor, however, came up fifth in terms of popularity in the new report, while Adipurush actress Kriti Sanon has clinched the fifth spot on the list of Bollywood actresses.

Among big names, Taapsee Pannu, Rashmika Mandanna and Ayushmann Khurrana did not find a place on the popularity chart published by the media consulting firm.
