How is Salman Khan zooming ahead of SRK when they're both making formulaic, massy films?

By now we've all read about Radhe breaking records. Zee infamously crashed, and the movie became massively viewed in the matter of a few hours. This despite the flak and criticism that it has faced. From Disha Patani and Salman's taped kiss to comparisons with the original Seeti Maar featuring Allu Arjun, Radhe has seen it all. Besides this, even the other songs from the movie were poorly received and not well liked. Not to mention, #BoycottRadhe trended on Twitter just a day after its release, courtesy of SSR supporters.

Yet, against all odds, Radhe is making records. In a nutshell, it is a rehashed version of all older action movies of Salman like Race 3. Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan has also adapted Salman's massy style in the past few years. His movies have lacked gripping storylines, good performances, and nuanced writing. SRK peaked in the 90s and 2000s and brought Bollywood to international audiences. So why is his formula failing when Salman's fanbase continues to rise?
