Change is the only constant and Bollywood is its classic example. It’s a world where destinies change every Friday, where meteoric rises and sharp dips are occupational hazards. In such a world, assessing star ratings is no easy task.

That’s where the Times Celebex powered by zoOm! comes in. Launched in September, the rating index is based on several measurable parameters, including the stars’ Box Office performance, their ability to stay in the news across print, TV and online; their brand endorsement, and their popularity among fans on the internet and social media. These are taken cumulatively to assign the actors a final Times Celebex score called the ‘T Score’. While Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor were the winners of the first Times Celebex in September with the highest T Score, Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif have got the top ranks in November.

Times Celebex is a scientific and robust ranking system based on data collected from 200+ publications and 250+ TV channels, making it the first ever ranking system for Bollywood. The next rating for the month of December will be announced soon. Thereafter, Times Celebex will be a monthly rating, announced on the subsequent first of every month.
