Why always the hero's name appear before the heroine's?
If they want to show the names according to box office popularity then it is ok.
But then how come Abhisheik's name appear before Aishwarya,Vidya or Kareena?
He is a flop star.
If it is based on seniority then why does Ranbir Kapoor's name appear before Priyanka Chopra or Bipasha Basu?
Why does the hero's name always appear first?
It is so male chauvinistic.

TZP had Darsheel name first...which us absolutely ok..since he was the hero...

but then point to be noted is that Aamir was there in too...and it was his decision that Darsheel should appear in credit first...

HAHK had Madhuri's name first and then Salman..

Depends film to film

Sometimes or mostly on seniority, like Anil k or sanjay comes first, length of role, mixed actors and actress...depends on filmmaker how he wants it. heroine name always comes last thats too aint true...

yeah but i just watched the start of guru.. and it had abhi first and aish second.. 

i dont get it

dhoom 2 went hrithik.. abhi .. aish..uday..bipasha

if that was in order of biggest star id place them... hrithik .. aish.. abhi.. bips.. uday

Even in Kuch Naa Kaho Abhi's name come before Aishwarya's name.
In that film both had equally important roles.
Bipasha has more star power than Uday.
Then her name appeared last in Dhoom 2?
