[img_assist|nid=254192|title=Number 9|desc=Aamir Khan: Mr Perfectionist has only done Dhobi Ghat in the past 2 years. But, his popularity on social media — 29 lakh followers on Twitter and 53 lakh on Facebook, and the PR buzz around Talaash and Dhoom 3 have kept his visibility high. Aamir remains the undefeated box office king with 3 Idiots being the highest grosser to date. But, since box office data was considered for the last two years and 3 Idiots was released three years back, Aamir didn't get points on that key parameter. But, since Talaash is on its way, everyone should watch out.
