Yeah, but I can't compare a fading star's starpower to a a star at the top of her game's star power to make the star at the top of her game look better. ...to make it seem like she actually has star power. You see how it weakens the argument?

Anyways, this debate will go on for forever...and in circles too.

BI: Yes, Rani is a superior actor to Kareena for sure...and if she was at the peak of her career, then I'm sure Heroine would have done just as well with her than it did with Kareena. Actually forget Rani, put Madhuri and Sridevi in Heroine at the peak of their careers, and the film would have been a hit...not a "below average." ...because Sridevi and Madhuri had a proven star-power.

Yeah so...
Actress at peak of her career = Posessing starpower

So I don't see the difference between
Heroine did this much business coz its an actress at the peak of her career vs The actress has starpower.

What do you define being at the peak by?
You're taking that credit away from her coz she's at the peak of her career? What gives?
I don't understand your argument

I'm defining the peak by what the media defines it as (BO)...which was last year for Kareena. Kareena was called #1 last year because of her 100 crore hits...people went on and on about how she has 2-3 (or more? I don't even know) 100 crore hits in her bad and so is undisputed BO queen. Correct?

So when you compare the business of a film with an actress hailed as all this, to an actress who the media has been writing off for the last 4-5 years, logic dictates that the actress at the "peak" will and should fare better than the one being written off right?

Priyanka was also a current actress at her peak. How much did Saat Khoon Maa make opening weekend?
Ok fine, it's not commercial enough.
What about Teri meri Kahaani?

That's commercial enough right?
And Kat making a 26 crore weekend for MBKD is considered starpower, but Kareena making 25 crore for a completely heroine oriented topic where she was literally in every scene is NOT starpower? The male leads weren't even in the posters!

and the film was trashed by critics, released agaimst a successful Barfi and still made that much. But Kareena still doesn't get any credit.
Why are the rules different for Kareena?

YES it depends on the opening. 
You mean to tell me, a low/moderate budget film like Vicky Donor was able to achieve a hit status so newcomers have more starpower than Kareena?


If there's ANY measure of starpower, its the  opening of a film, coz no one knows how good or bad the film itself is. Not the lifetime business, coz that depends on how good a film is, nor hit/flop status coz that depends on the budget. It has NOTHING to do with starpower. 

Ra.one was NOT a hit. But it grossed over 100 crores. You mean to tell me, that just coz it wasnt a hit, Shahrukh has less starpower than a newcomer? 
The film took a huge opening BECAUSE of SHAHRUKH'S starpower, but it CRASHED the following week coz the film was bad.
That is STAR POWER.

Heroine took on a good opening, one of the BESTS in women centric films (despite terrible reviews before release and competition from an already successful Barfi), but was unable to sustain coz the film was bad. That is STAR POWER.
