Looks like Bollywood fans prefer Hrithik Roshan to Salman Khan – when it comes to pulling off a masked crusader look, that is.

The trailer of Salman Khan's upcoming film Kick was released last week and it instantly became a rage among fans on the internet. The trailer showed Khan in a superhero-like masked getup leaving fans wondering whether their favourite star is playing a superhero in the film.

While that remains to be seen, the interest generated by Khan's look prompted comparison with Bollywood's other famous superhero – Krrish played by Hrithik Roshan.

In order to find out who the fans prefer, Bollywood Life conducted a poll to determine which hero among the two has the better looking mask.

"We received a total of 7081 votes, out of which Roshan Jr has acquired 3912 (55 percent) votes thus beating Salman, who received 3173 votes (45 percent). A neck-to-neck fight, we must say," states the BL report.

So clearly, fans prefer Roshan's Krrish look over Khan's as the ultimate crime fighting hero. Now it remains to be seen whether the Kick star manages to shatter the record set by Roshan's last blockbuster – Krrish 3.

Kick also stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in key roles and is slated to release on 25 July.
