Alia Bhatt is riding high on the success of her latest film – Dear Zindagi. The film, which was released in a limited number of screens, has been loved by the audience. The movie’s popularity can easily be derived from its collection which stands at Rs 32.50 crore at the end of the first weekend. On the other hand, her contemporary – Shraddha Kapoor’s last release – Rock On 2 was a disaster. Shraddha had performed well, but demonetisation and the story let Rock On 2 down. The movie just collected Rs 10.01 crore in the first week, leaving her fans disappointed. Shraddha and Alia fall in the same age group and hence they are pitted against each other.

And with the current trend, you would feel that the Dear Zindagi actress is a bigger draw at the box office than the Rock On 2 lady, right? However, you will be surprised to know that Shraddha Kapoor is actually more PROFITABLE than Alia Bhatt. Yes, we aren’t kidding. If you look at the last five releases of both the actresses, you will get proof. Here are all the details…
Shraddha Kapoor’s last five releases include Ek Villain, Haider, ABCD 2, Baaghi and Rock On 2. If you add the total lifetime collections of all of them, then you will observe that Shraddha has collected Rs 354.10 crore. On the other hand, Alia Bhatt has had Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Shaandaar, Kapoor & Sons, Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi as her last five releases. The lifetime total of all these five releases is just Rs 286.06 crore, which is lesser than what Shraddha has collected.

Though the budgets and size of releases have to be considered, Shraddha has been more PROFITABLE than Alia considering the lifetime box office collections. However, box office success should not be the only measure for an actor. We have to see the performances too. And both Shraddha as well as Alia have given us some meaty performances over the past few years and we adore both of them.
Going forward, Alia has Badrinath Ki Dulhania while Shraddha has OK Jaanu, Half Girlfriend and Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai. However, we hear that the former is all set to announce a few other projects soon. Looks like the competition is going to heat up further in the coming years.
