John, Rani top eBay Bollywood Barometer

MUMBAI: eBay India has announced a unique eBay Bollywood Barometer, which gauges Bollywood star popularity based on the number of products up for sale on eBay India website. The range of products varies from movie memorabilia like film magazine covers, posters, movies and books.


Amongst the female actors, Rani Mukherjee tops the list of the barometer followed by Aishwarya Rai and Preity Zinta at the second and third place repsectively. The timing for Madhuri Dixit’s comeback seems to be right on target as she is number four on the barometer. Rekha actually ties with Priyanka Chopra at 36 listings each. 

The Bollywood male brigade is topped by John Abraham, who leaves behind Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan at the second and third position respectively. Abhishek Bachchan’s popularity though is assumed to be high; the same has not been seen on eBay because his ranking is at number eight. On the other hand, Amitabh Bachchan is ranked number four.
