Everything contributes - i.e. actors, story, music etc. Stars matter a lot.
A good actor/actress can made a lot of difference to a movie with the same story.

This is not a phenomenon which is ruling in todays times. Back then in the late 70s and 80s as well, there was this huge New Wave cinema that had found its origin. Actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Pankaj Kapur, Deepti Naval, Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil etc. were in vogue and there was this widespread belief that they would eventually end up toppling the star system. Nothing happened then, nothing is going to change today either.
Bollywood in general is an out and out visual medium with a strong eye on commercial visibility. Yes, there is a change taking place with a Kai Po Che! or an ABCD or a Vicky Donor finding audience. However it is the superstars who continue to rule as they have managed a much wider reach. Also, one has to understand that if big money is being spent on a Shahrukh or a Salman, it is because they have ruled for 20 years and more and have earned that right due to continued successes. Same cant be said for other actors, whether senior or newly arrived.
