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).

Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan
Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan

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? 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.

Much was talked about Shah Rukh Khan and his movies not able to break records in past few years but when we look into the collections of his last ten movies, he’s the only actor whose last 10 movies have consistently managed to cross 100 crores worldwide and has quiet significantly justified the tag of ‘KING KHAN’. Collections of his last ten movies are:-

Chennai Express: 425 crores
Jab Tak Hai Jaan: 249 crores
Don2: 238 crores
Ra.One: 240 crores
My Name Is Khan: 205 crores
Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi: 156 crores
Om Shanti Om: 150 crores
Chak De India: 109 crores
Don: 103 crores
Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna: 115 crores

TOTAL: 1990 crores
Average per films: 199 crores

Salman Khan

He has been delivering back to back Blockbusters in India but his run at the overseas market has been pretty ordinary. While most from his last 5 movies has grossed 150 crs and more in India, it has failed to cross 75 crores at the overseas market, Kick being his highest grosser at the overseas market. Collections of his last ten movies:-

Kick: 380 crores (expected)
Jai Ho: 180 crores
Dabangg 2: 255 crores
Ek Tha Tiger: 310 crores
Bodyguard: 228 crores
Ready: 185 crores
Dabangg: 216 crores
Veer: 34 crores
London Dreams: 30 crores
Main Aur Mrs Khanna: 18 crores

TOTAL: 1836 crores
Average per films: 183.6 crores

Aamir Khan

He started the league of 100 crore with Ghajini and did the same for 200 crores with 3 Idiots, there was lots of expectation from Dhoom 3 to be first film to gross 300 crores in India but unfortunately it was not able to do so but became first Bollywood film to gross 500 crores and more worldwide. He is at the third spot on this list with his last ten movies collection being.

Dhoom 3: 530 crores
Talaash: 150 crores
3 Idiots: 385 crores
Ghajini: 190 crores
Taare Zameen Par: 90 crores
Fanaa: 102 crores
Rang De Basanti: 90 crores
Mangal Pandey: 54 crores
Dil Chahta Hai: 90 crores
Lagaan: 58 crores

TOTAL: 1739 crores
Average per films: 173.9 crores

  1. It’s true that only 4 films are in the 200 crore club because Krrish 3’s real boxoffice collection was 185-190 crores. 240 cr. was the fake collection mentioned by the producers of Krrish 3…..

  2. if we will take last pictures of all khan then srk-1357,salman- 1353 and may fav aamir is -1345. but u have given dhoom 3 530cr real is 537 in your home page

  3. i think all these 3 so called kings are fake kings why they release their films on EID ,DIWALI & CHRISMAS with maximum no of cinemas & shows , earliar blackmarketeirs used to sell ticket in black now they increase ticket rates , i think if a 20 cr ( production cost ) collects 60 cr 0r more ( 2000 cinemas ,normal rates ) is a Hit like Ek villain ,Humpty Sharma ,Ragini mms ,Queen etc not a Big budget film big star 4000 cinemas release with maximum ticket rates ,advantage of holidays and collecting 100 to 200 cr

  4. The above calculation is not fare, if you count last 10 films of each khan thn shahrukh n salman’s film will be in the period of 2009 to 2014.. Where as for aamir considering the less movies he does, it is calculated since 2001 n during that the collection was quite low as compared to today’s collection. Last 3 films can b calculated for fare results.

  6. Just taking few films anyone can’t mention king of box office if you are a true analyst then, why don’t consider thier hole career films and make a efficient decision. as i think salman khan is the box office and bollywood’s king.

  7. False article collection Shah overstated and understated other …….
    I ponyalya is the official fan site Shah !!!
    Disgusting …. I’m leaving !!!

  8. yeh shahrukh ka chamcha hai. yeh aamir ka movies list 2000 se liya aur shahrukha ka 2006 se, anyday aamir khan’s average per film is greater than shahrukh and salman. be fair and count from year 2006 with all actors to have fair analysis.

  9. Mr. Perfectionist is best. this article is written by a blind shahrukh fan or an aamir khan hater. but truth will remain truth that who has the best success ratio. and everyone knows that. even this writer knows that aamir is farr ahead.

  10. Salman is entertaining the people more compared to others. He is also releasing at least 2 in a year. Salman is the box office king

  11. Your method is flawed as it does not take inflation into consideration remember Lagan was released in 2001 ticket prices were considerably lower. Most of aamirs movies on your list are pre the 100 cr era. This is the old saying lies damn lies and stats anyone can make stats fit their argument as the writer has done here.

  12. Why “Wanted” collection is kept out of Salman khan’s list, and “Main Aur Mrs Khanna” has been included, which only have Salman in a small role? Its basically a movie with Sohel khan in lead role.

  13. Krish 3 has collected 240 cr, but its not SRK film unfortunately. Idiotic comments that producers shows high figure. These idiots are eating human food or animal shit. Doesnt have brain to think that if they show high figure and INCOME TAX department will stay away from this!!!!. To pay the tax for 40 cr addition is simple thing?? SRK fans are really stupid s.

    • Not only that, Main Aur Mrs Khanna was released on 09th Sep 2009 and Wanted released on 18th September 2009. This stupid review not considered WANTED. This KOIMOI firm either owned by SRK or sponsored by SRK.

  14. collection shown here for SRK;s flim is reported higher than actuals..and Aamir;’s flim collection is reported lower than actuals..Also the entire analisis should be reported in inflation adjusted figures..since all the flims are not released in same year

  15. ap sb mujhe yeh btao k kia aj tk aisi koi bhi movie ap ne miss ki he in 3 khans ki ???

    Nhi Na

    so thats why yeh teeno khans king of box office or king of hearts hen

  16. Abe salo koimoi walo talaash 175 cr ,3i 395cr,d3 550 cr hai gadho aamir ki 2001 tak films daali hui hai lol phir to collection kam hogi hi na mtlb kuch srk ko no1 karne ke liye kuch bhi

  17. Oye salo salman ki wanted to daali nahi or aamir ki 2001 tak ki filme daal rahe ho phir collection to kam ho gi hi. Ya phir shahrukh khan ne koimoi walo ko paise diye hai

  18. Vaise to Salman aur Amir ki abhi abhi Kismat jag uthi kai ,Budhapa knocking ,
    Shah rukh has been king for last 20 years

    • I think u shud treat ur memory loss disease.

      Main Aur Mrs Khanna was released on 09th Sep 2009 and Wanted released on 18th September 2009. Check WIKI of both the films.

  19. Usually on resume people look at what you have done in recent 3 years ….Its unfair comparison when last of Aamir film was released in 2001 while that of so called king khan was released in 2006. Why not just look at last five years or since the beginning of the 100 crore club …that would be relatively fair comparison!

  20. To beat Sharukh khan salman only need 6 movies to reach 1900 cr.
    1. Kick. World wide Gross. 395*(still earning.)
    2. Jai Ho. World wide gross. 190 cr.
    3. Ek tha tiger. 341 cr.
    4. Dabangg 2. 300 cr.
    5. Bodyguard. 255 cr.
    6. Dabangg. 241 cr.
    7. Ready. 210 cr.
    Total 1932 cr from 7 movies only. Avg. 279 cr per movie
    Sharukh is no way near to this figure above article is not right as they are taking gross collection of Sharukh movies and nett collections of Salman movies.

  21. @amit
    According to your mathematics ,shahrukh needs only one movie
    Chennai express 3000 crore
    poor illiterate criminals FAN

  22. Seems like koimoi is big fan of srk be cuz koimoi praises srk at all the time no matter what. In fact , we’ll know salman khan is the only one who has given back to back 100 crore club for 7 movies.

    • Salman is worst..
      Because salman is the only actor in bollywood which remake 5 south movies out of 7.the movies are already block busters in south industry.then how salman is real king.he is only copy king.he does n’t believe his talent and hard work.he is in form with south scripts but not his own scripts.his acting in those films is worst compared to south actors.

  23. These are all fake figures.You have increased the collection of srk films and decrease the collection of aamir and salman films that doesn’t make srk king.After all truth is truth. salman and aamir films have more collection than srk films.

  24. Shivaji singh, You dont have the film knowledge.
    Salman is the real king khan. beat Sharukh khan salman only need 6 movies to reach 1900 cr.
    1. Kick. World wide Gross. 395*(still earning.)
    2. Jai Ho. World wide gross. 190 cr.
    3. Ek tha tiger. 341 cr.
    4. Dabangg 2. 300 cr.
    5. Bodyguard. 255 cr.
    6. Dabangg. 241 cr.
    7. Ready. 210 cr.
    Total 1932 cr from 7 movies only. Avg. 279 cr per movie
    Sharukh is no way near to this figure above article is not right as they are taking gross collection of Sharukh movies and nett collections of Salman movies.

  25. srk is king of bollywood ye collection to sirf last 10 movis ka he to average sabse zyada h agar shurat se le lo to aamir or salman or bhi peeche reh jaenge.

  26. only Aamir khan creates history & also broken by himself. Srk said Happy new year collects 800 crore & will break all records. but it seems it will close to 400 only. aamir khan'”s PK will surely break D3 record.

  27. Salman Khan is the Real KING KHAN of Bollywood. He is the BLOCKBUSTER KING in INDIA. where as Hakla SRK only given semi-hits and hits to his credits.

  28. again disappointed where is wanted(136 crore worldwide) if you add it surpass 2000 crore always the critics and trade analyst are biased don’t know why what you miss is that salman is the most stylish and more popular in india then any other actor so even the calculations are wrong check wikipedia and then calculate, several times there have been survery remember star news voting about the best actor who was he ofcourse the one and only salman khan

  29. Srk is real king of bollywood…
    Ye to uske samne bachhe hai…
    Enki abhi filme chalni lagi hai..
    Inka kuch bhi nahi rmtha tab se srk ki filme chal rahi hai…
    Agar happy new year ki collection add kar di to srk ki filmo ka avarage 218 tak jata hai..

  30. this is a bullshit by a koimoi reader or again a pr activity of srgay by telling himself as no.1 which is not true, he is the only actor who claim himself as king, no.1 in the industry but we know the true superstar is only salman khan and amitabh bacchan who are always hit in tv or in big screen or who don’t claim to be no.1 , aur pahle india mein to tiger ban k dikhao baad mein overseas jana kyunki overseas mein srgay k baap log hain , so just talk about india bcoz we’re indians not NRI’S, so u shivaji are really a srgays gay lover and i think he’s doing u repeatedly.

  31. ab tak salman srk n amir rajkumar hai.un logo se koi km nehi.both of 3 have same power.un tino ka papa hai amitabh bachan.uske bad jo kabil rahega wo hi raja hoga.so dnt clame who is king of bollywood.salman amir srk ram laksman bharat ki tarah hai

  32. YES.SRK ALWAYS NO.1 .DON’T COMPARE OTHER ACTORS WITH HIM.BECAUSE HE IS THE GOD OF ACTING.HE HAS GREAT SENSE OF HUMOUR.HE IS THE REAL KING OF THE WORLD.

    S -SIMPLY THE
    R -REAL
    K -KING

  33. SRK ALWAYS NO 1.BECAUSE HE HAS THE MOST FAN FOLLOWING CELEBRITY IN THE WORLD.HE PROVES THE STAMINA OF INDIAN CINEMA IN AN INTERNATIONAL

    WIDE.BIGGEST STAR ON THE PLANET.HIS ACTING ON THE SCREEN IS AWESOME.DDLJ IS THE BETS FILM IN THE HISTORY OF INDIAN CINEMA.

  34. YES.SRK ALEAYS NO 1.IN ANY TIME AND ANY WHERE.THE MOST FAN FOLLOWING CELEBRITY IN THE WORLD BY FORBES LIST.BAADSHAH OF BOLLYWOOD.KING KHAN.

  35. Srk is the best in the world he should get Oscars 4 his romance and emotional acting HE WOULD ALWAYS BE A KING BADSHAH DON OF BOLLYWOOD

  36. This is a bullshit article from some Shivaji..He should have been started the list from last releases of the actors.Where are Sultan,Tiger Zinda hai,Raees,Fan,PK and Dangal?Also.Collection of some movies is mentioned wrong.And dear Koimoi,Please do not degrade yourself by awarding such ignorant persons as “BOLLYWOOD BUFF” and giving space at your portal.

  37. The more u try to protect now non-existent srk stardom…the more srk going down. So better show actual position. Salman and amir closely fighting for numero uno position and srk fighting with Akki Ajay and hritik for second level stardom
