well saying hes better than prateik or the new bengali actor in kahaani is pretty bad considering hes an "A lister"...
and as far as im concnerned, MBKD ran coz of katrina...her dances, her starpower...and i never denied the fact tht katrina has more starpower than kareena...
like u said, his star power is nothing compared to that of ranbir, so comparing a film of his, to ranbirs is a pretty poor example by itself.
hes ranked at the very bottom of the A listers...even lower than John abraham, saif n shahid...and thts saying something..
But Imraan just debuted in 2008 and since then he has been fairly consistent.JA,Shahid have been in the industry since ages and with them its always a hit or miss.I think rankings keep flunctuating.2 yrs before JA must have been at the bottom.But last yr and this yr he had some hits to his credits thanks to some multistarers.Shahids TMK bombed as well.Imran has been much more consistent in comparison.He has a fresh youth appeal.If how much an actor is sought out for coveted projects is an indication of star power,then Imran is definitely bigger beacuse right now he has big projects like Vishal B movie,OUATIM 2,Puneet M movie and TDP director's next.
I m glad u acknowledged Katrina has more star power.Cos over some months ppl have been claiming Katrina "appears" to have more star power only because she chooses masala potboiler movies with big stars.Heroine was supposed to reveal the true "facts".:p
