Shahrukh Khan beats Salman Khan as the male rockstar of the year: BollywoodLife Awards 2012

Despite tough competition from the Dabangg Khan, SRK managed to win the coveted title by garnering a cool 40 percent of the votes from Bollywoodlife.com readers

The nominations for the BollywoodLife male rockstar of 2012 included Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, Aamir Khan, Ajay Devgn and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. All these actors have had a great year and we would have loved to reward each of them, but unfortunately, there can be only one winner. And BollywoodLife readers have quite unanimously chosen Shahrukh as the male rockstar of 2012.

The Jab Tak Hai Jaan star topped the list with a cool 40 percent votes, followed by Salman who received 29.35 per cent votes thanks to his consistent box office charm – this year with Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2. Akshay Kumar, who had a mixed year – with hits like Housefull 2, Rowdy Rathore and OMG! Oh My God!, and a debacle in the form of Joker – got 16.69 percent votes to come out third on this list of rockstars.

Hrithik Roshan and Ranbir Kapoor, who had just one release each in 2012 (Agneepath and Barfi!), received only 7.81 percent and 3.46 percent votes respectively. Nawazuddin Siddiqui made it to the list with a tiny 0.69 percent votes. The most surprising result though was that Aamir Khan received a meagre 1.36 percent votes and Ajay Devgn (despite huge hits like Bol Bachchan and Son Of Sardaar) got only 0.75 percent. It looks like their fans weren’t really impressed by their efforts this year.

Meanwhile, congratulations to the King Khan for proving that he still rules the hearts of the audience.
