People say he has lost that audience now but if the so called Masses are "uneducated taxi/richshaw low class lowest common denomators"


People like that would not like DDLJ KKHH K3G KHNH KANK  etc.  and most likely could not even comprehend films like Swades CDI Devdas Asoka Dil Se

His most massy films was OSO and MHN and everyone loved them

There is also Don Series but that is class and Mass

SRK's main audience is the middle-class...especially girls

I don't know how the system of masses and classes work but every actor has a certain fan base

ok if srk's main audience is the middle-class then what is salman, akshay, ajay's main audience, the upper class?Confused

I know you are being sarcastic but I dont think upper/elite class is anyone's audience other than audiencing actors-actresses perform at their kids' weddings. Sleepy

On topic: I second abby_girl30, with his charm and probably non filmy middle class upbringing, as a person he is more of a middle class sweetheart and its good for him.

I don't think that the masses or the classes...like particular stars...its the kind of movie that is different for both of them ...not the stars...SRK does the kind of movies that appeals to the classes mainly ...thats why he is more popular among the multiplex audience and overseas...no one can beat him there...if tomorrow he starts doing massy movies ...the masses will flock at his movies...so its not SRK but the kind of movies...
 
And before any one jumps at my throat for using the term classes and masses...its the term that was created by the critics, media and BW itself to analyse who likes what movies...I have heard stars say themselves that..oh i put this item song to attract the masses...or..my movie is a massy movie...

Correct 


But then why do I read this crap that he is lost audience and that stuff it id very confusing.


I truly believe whether anyone agress with me or not that the audience that watches Masala films especially Salmans movies are new to films or have come after a long lull. They stopped watching and now they are again. Pre 2009 Multiplex was more important than any other audience now the equation has changed.

I dont think audience can be sterotyoed into masses and classes because a mass movie can be enjoyed by the same who like movies that supposedly classy!! (Because to me classy meant arty movies not commercial ) 

To me regarding SRK main hoon na and OSO are massy movie and outta these two I liked  main hoon na 

Whereas kal ho na ho. And VZ Id put  in classy and I enjoyed both (though it seems massy and classy mixed)

And these above movies worked ..
