Most profitable Debuts: Ayushmann Khurrana (Vicky Donor was a super hit, while SOTY was a semi-hit, thereby making more profit, plus Ayushmann's performance was the best among the lot) and Diana Penty (Again, Cocktail was a hit, while SOTY was a semi-hit, and Yami shouldn't get the award imo since her performance may have been good, but her role wasn't too difficult unlike Diana's in Cocktail)

akshay kumar is a real khiladi and win the 2012 award not to others

HAHAHAHA! WHAT A JOKE!

Where the HELL is VIDYA BALAN -- THE ONLY TRULY BANKABLE AND PROFITABLE FEMALE ACTOR???

salman and kareena

salman khan for ETT, Dabang 2
Katrina Kaif for ETT, JTHJ, Agneepath
ETT for being the second highest grosser but dabang 2 is still running successfully. even then i guess it would be ETT.

Surprise of the Year= English Vinglish

SOnakshi also gave a colossal flop named joker this year whereas Asin had 2 blockbusters and 1 superhit...anyways ETC will give it to Kat as Komal Nahata is always partial towards her.

Salman and priyanka.

Male -salman or ranbir
female - katrina
movie - barfi or dabang 2

Sonakshi has 3 blockbusters movies crosign 100 cr, Sonkashi was solo leadign lady in those movies

Asin has three hits only H2 there were 2 leading ladies, khiladi does not made wonders, it is only BOl bachan which crossed 100 cr

so Sonakshi is winner

There are others who have done well too this year, case in point with:

Asin (Housefull 2, Bol Bachchan)
Katrina Kaif (Ek Tha Tiger, Jab Tak Hai Jaan)
Priyanka Chopra (Agneepath, Barfi!).

However SONAKSHI's success rate has been unparalleled. (Rowdy Rathore,Son of Sardaar, Dabangg 2)

Most Profitable Actor= Salman Khan
profitable debuts: sidharth malhotra & alia bhatt
the most profitable banner:EROS International

Male-Salman
Female- Sonakshi
Director-Anurag/ Kabir Khan
Movie- Dabangg2 or barfi or Ekt

varun and alia

Strange there is no Vidya balan for kahani....surprisingly it was the female grosser of the year....strange!!!! ETC

Top grosser: Dabaang 2
Most Profitable Actor - Salman Khan
Most Profitable Actress - Sonakshi Sinha
Most Profitable Debut (Male) - Siddharth Malhotra - soty
Most Profitable Debut (female) - Alia Bhatt - soty
top grossing director category- Arbaaz Khan for Dabangg 2
Surprise of the Year - English Vinglish

Best wishes to all!

whatever...kat-salman-ett...DUH.

Top Grosser movie= ( DABANGG 2) though we have to wait but i think this will be the top grosser
Most Profitable Actor= SALMAN KHAN
Most Profitable Actress = SONAKSHI SINHA
Top Grossing Director=r PRABHUDHEVA/KABIR KHAN/ANURAG
Box Office Surprise of the Year:OMG: Oh My God!

Top Grosser:Ek Tha Tiger
Profitable Actor:Salman Khan(Without a shred of doubt)
Profitable Actress:Katrina Kaif/Sonakshi Sinha(Kinda rooting for Kat but this one's a tough call)
Profitable Male Debut:Siddharth/Varun prolly since SOTY was the biggest grosser with debutantes.Would still love Ayushman to win.
Profitable Female Debut:Mostly Alia because of the above reasons/Ileana maybe?
Top Grossing Director:Kabir Khan(ETT)
Box Office Surprise Of the Year:Vicky Donor
Profitable Banner:YRF maybe? Don't know much about them.Viacom 18 produces the most high quality films though.

I dont think Salman or Shahrukh can win becaus their fees of 50+ crore is enough to bring their net collections down (which isn't reflected in box office earnings usually)

technically, films like barfi and vicky donor have done better as they were small budget films , and in Barfi's case, it received 120+ crore with a 30 crore budget so, its net earnings are good.

Profitable actor: salman
profitable actress: kareena only only only
profitable debuts: sidharth malhotra & alia bhatt

the most profitable award with out a doubt is for Salman, Katrina, ETT. this is the one thing where these two stars are actually unbeatable.

SALMAN AND AKSHAY SHOULD SHARE THE AWARD
KATRINA AND ASIN SHOULD SHARE THE AWARD

asina and katrina got the best success rate and akshay and salman got the best success rate!

sonakshi(3 hits)i priyanka(2 hits), kareena(2 hits) had given atleast one flop this year!
katrina gave 2 hits and asin gave 3 hits!
so this year's most profitable actress is asin!

it should be katrina or asin

actor: salman
actress:asin

katrina will get it as she's the most profitable star in Bollywood right now

SRK & Kareena

no doubts! it is asin

salman
katrina
ek tha tiger

katrina made- jthj-120 crores, ek tha tiger-300 crores, agneepath-120 crore
and
sonakshi made-rowdy rathore-133 crore , son of sardaar-105 crore , dabangg2- 200 crore lets say

salman made- ek tha tiger-300 crores, dabangg2- 200 crore lets say
and
akshay made - rowdy rathore-133 crore , omg -89 crore

its a tough call for actress but in case of actor it is salman for sure....the box office facts are from WIKIPEDIA

profitable ...means who made more money here...irrespective of the budget it was made

most profitable actor:salman khan
most profitable actress:katrina kaif
most profitable debut (male):ayushmann
most profitable debut (female):alia bhatt
top grossing director: Kabir Khan for ek tha tiger
the most profitable banner:yash raj films
By the way ek the tiger is the 2nd most profitable movie of all time in bollywood history after 3 idiots....

Silly awards, if they want to give someone a "trophy" for starring in the most profitable film, then what is the point of multiple nominees? And Vidya isn't even in the list despite being the most profitable actress for carrying Kahaani on her shoulders, so the "awards" are an obvious sham.

yaaaaay! finally an award that asin can win for!

this year belongs to salman, akshay, asin, katrina, and sonakshi when it comes to business!

Asin! she didn't have a flop at all this year! 2 100 crores and 1 70 crores!
sonakshi is also a tough contender but she had a disaster with joker!

Akshay kumar for grossing 400+ crores in one year and Asin for grossing 200+ in one year without a flop!

Male-Salman
Female-Priyanka
Director-Anurag
Movie- Barfi

BARFI is the most profitable movie of the year because its budget was 32cores and it went to gross over 160cores worldwide hence it made over 128cores profit.

Stupid award!!! Anyway...I care who act better.

Male- salman
Female- priyanka
Film- ETT

most profitable actor:Salman Khan
most profitable actress:Sonakshi Sinha
most profitable debut (male):Ayushmann Khurrana
most profitable debut (female):Ileana D'cruz
top grossing director:Kabir Khan for Ek Tha Tiger
Box Office Surprise of the Year:OMG: Oh My God!
the most profitable banner:EROS International

'most profitable' means profit-making; bankable or money-making...it has nothing to do with budget! Who were the actors who made money consistently throughout 2012?!?

Its obvious, the actors who were most profitable/moneymaking/bankable 2012 were Akshay Kumar first and Salman Khan second. Get your facts straight!

And actress was Sonaskhi.

most profitable actor :
Salman Khan

most profitable actress :
Katrina Kaif

I think the nomination page itself shows who is gonna win ...the 1st nominee of each category is going to win for sure

Why is Paresh Rawal NOT NOMINATED FOR OMG ? I BET HE DOESNOT CHARGE IN crazy crores like Khans... He should be the most profitable actor

most profitable actor :
Salman Khan
most profitable actress :
Katrina Kaif /sonakshi
most profitable film:
ek tha tiger

Top Grosser movie=Rowdy Rathore
Most Profitable Actor= Akshay Kumar
Most Profitable Actress = Sonakshi Sinha
Top Grossing Director= Prabhudheva for

Excuse me... they are asking MOST PROFITABLE... not who earned the most or who charged the most...only if fools knew these terms... a film that was made with the least budget but earned a whole lot more than anticipated.... if you are wise do the math and decide ( PV PUBLISH THIS)

profitable debut is Sidharth Malhotra!!!!

I know it is sounds shocking, but as profitable actress it is Sonakshi Sinha

get the fatcs

Rawdy Rathore 130 cr

Son fo Sardar 110 cr

Dabangg 2 105 cr in 6 days and will collect the rest two weeks another 100 crs

so maybe some love Katrina more, but that fact is strong

Sonakshi has three blokbusters in 2012 which makes Sonakshi most profitable and most successful new star

*Kareena Kapoor (For carrying the movies whole year on her shoulder not just 1 but so many)

Most Profitable Debut (Female) = Ileana D'Cruz (Rs. 100 crores nett on debut - ballin'!!!!)
Top Grossing Director= Kabir Khan for ETT
Box Office Surprise of the Year= Tie between Vicky Donor and OMG - I didn't expect them to be superhits and be so well recieved. Fab for these smaller budget films with good concepts.
Most Profitable Banner= Easily YRF - Ek Tha Tiger, JTHJ and Ishaqzaade were all hits - ETT was the second highest grossing film of all time! Compare that to Eros which had 8 films release this year but it had a few not so successful films like Teri Meri Kahaani, Bhoot Returns and Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi. Dharma comes in second - the three films that were released under their banner proved to be successful.

I feel these should be the winners before we take Dabangg 2 into consideration obviously.

Most profitable banner --> dharma

top grossing director
*Karan Malhotra for Agneepath.

over all salman khan

If these awards are purely business based, why are there any "nominations"? The winner in each category will be clear cut, by the numbers.

It just seems like an attempt to generate fake "competition" and fan hysteria.

Top grosser: Ek tha Tiger though lets see how Dabangg 2 goes.

Profitable actor: Salman Khan

Profitable actress: Sonakshi Sinha [RR, SOS, D2] Katrina Kaif??? maybe!

Profitable debut: Siddharth Malhotra & Varun Dhawan - Both deserve it. SOTY was the biggest debut hit and both were considered as male leads.

Profitable debut (female): Ileana D'cruz

Top grossing director: Kabir Khan for Ek Tha Tiger again lets see how D2 goes. Arbaaz also in running for Dabangg 2??

Box Office Surprise of the Year: Vicky Donor

Most profitable banner: UTV Motion Pictures I guess. Don't really follow banners.

Of course this award is only about Box office so I guess these are the ones that deserve it the most.

Profitable debut male...Sid Malhotra...

The most profitable actor:
*Salman Khan (The name says it all ETT & Dabang)

The most profitable actress:
*Kareena Kapoor (For carrying the movies whole year on her shoulder not just 1 but so many)

The most profitable debut (male):
*Arjun Kapoor
*Siddharth Malhotra
*Varun Dhawan
(Anyone can win between these 3)

The most profitable debut (female):
*Alia Bhatt (she may not be good actress but she has is a STAR from now)
