  • @maroonporsche. Yes salman has also made his presence overseas in the last 5 years. However Shah Rukh is still number one by far. The three Khans and sometimes Hrithik are the only ones known internationally

  • Very interesting article (courtesy :mumbai mirror)
    OUTIMD team were in DUBAI to promote their upcoming film. very surprisingly they got a call from the palace for an invitation to dinner. very happily but curiously they all went
    once inside the palace and in front of the king they were asked to introduce themselves.
    SHockingly they found out that kings knowledge about bollywood started and stopped at SRK
    The king than asked them how were they related to SRK. every one had to say that they r stars like SRK
    than the king asked have they come to promote SRK s movie.
    finally AKSHAY kumar asked the king has he seen any movie. he said yes. SRK movies
    the whole team felt so awkward and got the first hand information about the popularity and fame of king SRK
    wow really great

  • Overseas is unarguably SRK’s domain. Yearly lists or all time lists, maximum number of top grossers and top openers overseas are SRK films.
    Haters living in dreamland keep saying he’s finished, while he keeps setting records with incomparable consistency.
