Shah Rukh Khan knows his ways around film promotions.

He does it differently and better than most actors, which is why his films reach out to more people. This quality of his has fetched him the top spot in Times Celebex for the month of October.

The ratings chart is based on several parameters such as box office success and also a star's ability to be all over the news, and social media.

SRK has grabbed headlines for the "Dilwale" teaser, the adorable video with Kajol celebrating 20 years of the iconic "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge", his being awarded with the Degree of Doctor Honoris Causa and the hot photoshoot with Victoria's Secret model Shanina Shaik for a magazine cover.

Deepika Padukone bagged the first position for her movies "Tamasha" and "Bajirao Mastani". The actress has been on her toes to promote her most special films yet. Also, her teaming up with ex-flame Ranbir Kapoor has helped her stay in the news for some time now.

While SRK beat Salman, Deepika outraced Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif to the finish line.
