PK vs Happy New Year: Highest overseas grosser of 2014?

In recent times, films starring Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan have not only crossed the 100 crore mark in India, but have also managed to perform equally well (or better in SRK’s case) in overseas markets.

Take a look at these numbers below – the Top 8 highest overseas grossers.

  • 1. Dhoom 3 – $28.1 million (र 174 cr)
  • 2. 3 Idiots – $25.2 million (र 119 cr)
  • 3. My Name Is Khan – $22.8 million (र 107 cr)
  • 4. Chennai Express – $18.8 million (र 116 cr)
  • 5. Jab Tak Hai Jaan – $13.2 million (र 73.2 cr)
  • 6. Don 2 – $11.2 million (र 59.4 cr)

As is pretty evident from the above numbers, Shahrukh Khan has dominated the overseas markets like no other actor in the history of the Indian film industry. Even his most ridiculed film, Ra One, has collected close to 11 million overseas.

But Aamir Khan’s last release Dhoom 3 and his most loved film 3 Idiots, have topped the charts. In fact, Dhoom 3 is way above the rest.

So the battle for the highest overseas grosser of 2014 is most likely going to be between Aamir’s P.K and SRK’s Happy New Year. The one factor that will hugely favour P.K is the fact that Rajkumar Hirani, the director of 3 Idiots, is directing P.K too.

Vote and tell us which film will win the big overseas battle, which will be mighty important if either film has to out-gross Dhoom 3 worldwide.

  • happy new year will not collect more than 150 cr. because diwali release cannot break all box office records and fans of only shahrukh khan will go and watch it . others will give it a thumb down .

  • it will be Happy New Year, as far as opening weekend concern, lifetime is only depend on content. 2 reason for Hny opening
    1. Shah Rukh Khan, undisputed no. 1 in overseas.
    2. Festive weekend – HNy will release on 23rd i.e. Thursday, so it got 4 day weekend and that aslo festvie weekend, while P.k. will release on 19th dec, Friday on a normal weekend.
    But i think in lifetime its P.K. who will won the battle, as that film has much higher chance of sustaining & better content.

  • of cours bannng bang like krrrish 3 it will be blockbuster because loot of reason the look of dhoom 2 the style the duo hrithik katrina and moooore

  • Aamir khan’s ‘PK’ will be easily the highest grosser in overseas this year as 2 genius r back again after creating history with ‘3 idiots’.

  • Highest grosser India=PK or Kick

  • Our king will again win this poll but since aamir is there so we cannot say the same about box office and we pray that aamir will postpone his movie and will give our king a chance this year

  • I am Aamir Khan fan and SRK hater but I agree HNY will top both in INDIA and OVERSEAS….:-p

  • When it comes to opening, I think HNY may get a bigger opening, but content wise Peekay might win the lifetime business battle.
