The Khans have been ruling the industry for the past few decades and their dominance is seen even now. It is evident from the fact how the movies of two Khans - Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan - Ek Tha Tiger and Jab Tak Hai Jaan, respectively, were received by the audience.

How can we leave our perfectionist! Yes, though Aamir Khan's Talaash was not widely accepted by many as the movie was slow paced, people liked the plot and Aamir's acting in the movie.

When there are Khans in a film, audience blindly accept their movies - be it Shahrukh, Salman or Aamir. All three Khans ruled the second half of 2012. So did our Chote Nawaab Saif Ali Khan with Cocktail.

Other Khans - Arbaaz Khan, Imran Khan and Irrfan Khan were also praised for their work. Arbaaz Khan directed, produced movie Dabangg 2, which starred him and his brother Salman Khan in the lead, released recently, received mixed reviews.
