Koimoi Reader – Shivaji Singh, seems to be a complete Bollywood buff, who is more interested in the Box Office Trade and film business. Quite elaborately, the man has written to us an analysis done by himself. Take a look at it right here: 

Much has been talked about 100 crores films in India and the list is ever growing with one or two films joining the list after every alternate months. Some films like Dhoom 3, Chennai Express, Krrish 3, Kick, Singham Returns have achieved this feat in 3-5 days. So is it really the barometer which has to be set to determine a historic box office success? Absolutely not! 100 crores business is passe now and one need to look at something higher like 200 crores film in India which has been achieved by only 4 film till date (3 Idiots, Chennai Express, Dhoom 3 and Kick).

It will take two or three years more for a film to cross the landmark figure of 200 crores as easily as 100 crores are doing these days. So why not for instance look at the comprehensive business of Bollywood film worldwide? Collection coming from overseas are most often sidelined and people are hardly aware of its significance in determining a film’s business. There was a time when only Shah Rukh Khan film or the film being promoted on a very high scale used to open well in overseas market, 17 SRK films in top 30 highest grossing films in overseas market depicts the monopoly he has been enjoying in this market for long but now many films are doing excellent business overseas adding to the box office success of a Bollywood film.

Bollywood saw a rapid increase in the business of films in past 5 years. Industry which was growing at 20-30% suddenly took a leap of 50% and has further grown by 100% in past years. This increase has also made Bollywood films do very well in overseas market due to the tie up with foreign studios, corporate marketing and promotions.

My Name Is Khan became the first Bollywood film to collect 100 crores at Overseas box-office and share the elite list with Lunchbox of being only films whose business in overseas has been more than that of in India. Films like 3 Idiots, Chennai Express and Dhoom 3 has also crossed $20 millions at overseas market.

So which actor rules the worldwide box office? Who is the king of box office? Which actor’s performance has been most consistent in past few years? This list will clear answer all your questions.

According to the box office collections of last 10 movies worldwide, the three Khans who dominated in 90s still hold the maximum box office potential with Shah Rukh Khan topping the list followed by Salman Khan and Aamir Khan.
