Ever since we published the ‘PK vs Happy New Year’ poll last night, a lot of readers in the comments section have been arguing over the highest grossing film of each star.
So here you go, the highest grossing overseas film of the Top 10 stars.
|Name||Movie||Overseas Total||Indian Rupees|
|Aamir Khan||Dhoom 3||$28.1 million||174 cr|
|Shahrukh Khan||My Name Is Khan||$22.8 million||107 cr|
|Ranbir Kapoor||Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani||$10.5 million||59 cr|
|Salman Khan||Ek Tha Tiger||$10.3 million||57.4 cr|
|Hrithik Roshan||Krrish 3||$8.9 million||54.9 cr|
|Raveer Singh||Ram Leela||$7.9 million||49.3 cr|
|Amitabh Bachchan||Black||$7.4 million||32.4 cr|
|Akshay Kumar||Singh Is King||$7.1 million||30 cr|
|Saif Ali Khan||Race 2||$6.5 million||35 cr|
|Abhishek Bachchan||Dostana||$5.3 million||26 cr|
The gap between the Top 2 (Aamir, SRK) and the rest is huge. Aamir’s top grosser is about 3 times more than the highest grossers of Salman, Ranbir, Hrithik and the rest.
Surprisingly, Akshay, who not too long ago was one of the biggest stars in markets like the United Kingdom, is down at No 8. His highest grosser Singh Is Khan did around $7.1 million of business, which is below Amitabh Bachchan’s Black and above Saif Ali Khan’s Race 2.
Please note, the conversion from US dollar to Indian Rupees has been done according to the dollar rate during its release. For example, Chennai Express ($18.8 million) grossed much lesser than My Name Is Khan ($22.8 million), but in terms of Indian rupees Chennai Express was a bigger grosser (Rs 116 cr) as the dollar rates were around 62 rupees in 2013.
