Timex Celebex is a monthly rating index launched in September 2012. They measure the popularity of Stars through different research tools, like by star’s box office performance, their presence in news, their popularity on social media and brand endorsements. It is the first ever ranking system of Bollywood that collects data from more than 60 publications and more than 250 channels.
They have now published their 50 star’s ranking for October 2014, last month Salman Khan was at the top place in the ranking but Shah Rukh Khan has taken the lead in the month of October due to his biggest hit of the year Happy New Year.
