Commenting on Ormax’s star popularity tracking, Gautam Jain, Partner - Ormax Media said: “Ormax’s star popularity ratings are an important metric that captures the true fan following of a star. Stars may see ups and downs in terms of box office performance and their personal life, but the loyal fan following of a star is built over several years, if not decades, and is not affected much by short-term outcomes. After Hindi & Hollywood, we decided to extent Ormax Stars India Loves to the Tamil & Telugu markets, because the fan base stars enjoy in South India is at another level altogether. We will soon be extending this track to other languages, including Kannada, Malayalam, Bengali, Marathi & Punjabi”.
