Bollywood Mr perfectionist Amir Khan beats King Khan

MUMBAI: Bollywood Mr perfectionist Aamir Khan has now defeated King of bollywood Shahrukh Khan as three of the perfectionist movies topped on in the top five international Bollywood grossers list, an Indian daily  reported.

Amir Khan recently released movie PK, Dhoom 3 and 3 Idiots climbed to the top three slots, bringing SRK’s Happy New Year and Chennai Express to number four and five, reported Daily News and Analysis (DNA).

Aamir who declares himself as “ika” of bollywood his movie, PK became the first Hindi film to collect about INR340 crore at the domestic box-office. His previous films Dhoom 3 and 3 Idiots are also known for their sky-rocketing business.


Movie business analysts and critics also commented on Aamir and Shahrukh’s films:



“There’s a tough fight between Shah Rukh and Aamir in the overseas territory. Besides star-power, it’s also about the film and its content. As of now, yes Aamir is having a dream run. But SRK is also a huge pull.


Aamir’s Dhoom 3 was already an established brand. PK had him coming back with Rajkumar Hirani after a massively successful 3 Idiots.


Besides this, the film’s content found high acceptance overseas. Though Happy New Year did very well, it didn’t match the kind of numbers one has of an SRK film. It did lesser than Chennai Express. Aamir’s Dhoom 3 and now PK have done put him in a great position.

“Out of the top five grossers overseas, three are Aamir’s movies. The figures speak for themselves and Aamir’s ranking in the overseas market. I think like the audience in India, even the audience abroad has started looking at Aamir’s movies to be like an ISI mark. They associate his movies with quality and novelty. They know that if it’s an Aamir Khanmovie it must be something good. That’s why his movies are doing so well.”

3 Idiots: $27,000,000 (Approx INR1,676,295,000)


Dhoom 3: $27,969,454 (Approx INR1,736,483,550)
