There's no shortage of Bollywood obsession on the internet. As an evaluation on, a highly popular online auction and shopping website revealed recently.

According to its annual Bollywood Barometer, merchandise related to stars like Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor is a huge sell-out.

A look at Bollywood's Top 10 leading men rocking eBay's celebrity sale charts.

10. Abhishek Bachchan

Surprise, surprise! Junior Bachchan beats his Dhoom 2 co-star Hrithik Roshan to squeeze a spot on number 10.

Instead of taking the 'hero' route, AB is happily exploring his range in diverse films like Yuva, Bunty Aur Babli, Paa and Dostana. You can't predict this guy. And that's always a good thing.

Up next: Mani Ratnam's Raavan (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Vikram, Govinda), Ashutosh Gowariker's Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se (Deepika Padukone).

9. Ajay Devgn

Just when you thought Ajay Devgn is all about intensity (courtesy The Legend of Bhagat Singh, Omkara), the National-award winner stumped us with his affection for droll capers like the Golmaal series, All The Best and Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge. No wonder his fans range from a quality-conscious aficionado to an average Joe looking for paisa vasool.

Up next: Prakash Jha's Raajneeti (Nana Patekar, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpai, Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor), Milan Luthria's Once Upon A Time in Mumbai (Emraan Hashmi, Kangna Ranaut, Prachi Desai), Rohit Shetty's Golmaal 3 (Kareena Kapoor, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Kunal Khemu).

8. Saif Ali Khan

Lately his off-screen equation with girlfriend Kareena Kapoor grabs more print space than his body of work.

Fans of the star, however, remain undeterred as they single-mindedly root for their beloved Langda Tyagi for better (Love Aaj Kal) or worse (Kurbaan).

Up next: Sriram Raghavan's Agent Vinod (Kareena Kapoor).

7. Aamir Khan

A sharp cookie when it comes to marketing his films, Aamir Khan is a superstar with a difference. Unlike others, he doesn't flash his A-lister status in Armani suits and Gucci glasses.

Rather his accessible personality and substance-offering sensibility makes him one of the most reliable forces within the industry. No wonder his films -- be it Rang De Basanti, Taare Zameen Par, Ghajini or 3 Idiots turn out to be box office gold.

Up next: Kiran Rao's Dhobi Ghaat (Pratik Babbar).

6. Amitabh Bachchan

Everything Big B is up for grabs. Ditto for his movies and memorabilia. Despite nagging health issues and vicious controversies, the greatest superstar of all times hasn't slowed down a bit.

With an average of four releases a year, AB continues to sparkle and surprise, every now and then, with unconventional turns like Auro in Paa.

Up next: Shoojit Sircar's Shoebite (Dia Mirza).

5. Sanjay Dutt

With bloopers like Kidnap, Luck and Blue in a row, one hasn't witnessed Sanjay Dutt live up to his 'deadly' epithet lately. The stylish star still has a considerable hold on his admirers to make it in top five.

We think a certain Munnabhai and his jadoo ki jhappis/Gandhigiri has got something to do with it. how about an encore, Munna?

Up next: Rahul Dholakia's Lamhaa (Bipasha Basu), Ajay Chandhok Chatur Singh Two Star (Amisha Patel), Anees Bazmee's No Problem (Akshaye Khanna, Anil Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Sushmita Sen).

4. Salman Khan

From being dinner table topic for his bizarre tweets to performing kick ass action in Wanted, Salman Khan knows how to live it up in style.

His unusual ways and persona enjoy an enviable following and not just on Twitterverse. Clearly the buyers at eBay can't have enough of their favourite Sallu movie. Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya, indeed!

Up next: Ravi Chopra's Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai (Govinda, Lara Dutta, Tabu), Abhinav Kashyap's Dabangg (Sonakshi Sinha, Arbaaz Khan).

3.John Abraham

Out of sight, out of mind! Says who?

There might not have been a single John Abraham release post-New York but that hardly seems to affect his popularity. Being on the third spot is proof enough.

Having said that, enough of the long wait already. Go on John; do the beach boy routine again, will you?

Up next: David Dhawan's Hook Ya Crook, Nagesh Kukunoor's Aashayein (Sonal Sehgal), Vishal Bhardwaj's Saat Khoon Maaf (Naseeruddin Shah, Priyanka Chopra, Irrfan Khan, Neil Nitin Mukesh)

2. Akshay Kumar

Movie buffs love to stack their shelves with comedies. And when it comes to tickling the funny bone, Akshay Kumar is the man.

Actually that applies for his action capers as well. No wonder the Housefull hero's stuff sells like hot cakes on eBay earning him second position on Bollywood Barometer.

Up next: Vipul Amrutlal Shah's Action Replayy (Aishwarya Rai), Priyadarshan's Khatta Meetha (Trisha Krishnan), Nikhil Advani's Patiala House (Anushka Sharma), Shirish Kunder's Tees Maar Khan (Katrina Kaif, Akshaye Khanna).

Guaranteeing customer satisfaction to the highest number of eBay users is the man who proudly proclaims, My Name is Khan.

From IPL franchise, innumerable endorsements and Bollywood goodies, SRK's name is attached to many a money-making propositions earning him top place in this remarkable countdown.

Up next: Anubhav Sinha's Ra 1 (Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal), Farhan Akhtar's Don 2: The Chase Continues (Priyanka Chopra).
