Apart from that Bharat is also Katrina Kaif’s second biggest opener as it’s only behind Thugs Of Hindostan. Let’s compare the recent graph of the three Mega stars and see how well their movies worked at the box office.

Aamir Khan is the highest grossing Khan of Bollywood. He is the king of Box-office as his quirky selection of movies hardly fails. AK understands the pulse of the audience and even though his films don’t break opening records every time, the lifetime business of almost all his films is historic.


From Ghajini to Dangal, he has given back to back All Time Blockbusters. However, Thugs Of Hindostan being one of the exceptions got Aamir the best opening of All Time and “Disappointing” lifetime business.

Thugs Of Hindostan: Aamir Khan’s Thugs Of Hindostan is the biggest opener of this year with the total 50.75 crores.

Dhoom 3: Dhoom 3 was the second biggest opener for Aamir Khan with the total of 33.42 crores on the first day.

Shah Rukh Khan is known as the King Khan of Bollywood for all the valid reasons. The superstar has given some of the biggest openers in his career; his Happy New Year which released in 2014 still happens to be the 2nd highest opener of All Time. However, the superstar is going through a rough patch of his career now and is struggling to give a hit. After HNY, SRK couldn’t give any record breaking film and most of his films remained disappointing.
