Box Office India’s list of Top Bollywood Grosser of all time (worldwide). Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots which released in 2009, remains the biggest grosser ever (inflation not adjusted). The Rajkumar Hirani film is followed by four Salman Khan money-spinners – Ek Tha Tiger (only the second film to cross 300 crores), Dabangg 2, Bodyguard and Dabangg.
Salman is closely followed by Shahrukh Khan, who also has 4 films in the Top 10 – his last release Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Don 2, Ra One and My Name Is Khan.

@ all srk fans
srk’s total blockbusters are only 5:- karan arjun (salman also as lead) , kabhi khushi kabhi gham ( amitaabh , hritik , ensemble cast) , chak de ( the only srk film i like) , oso , rbndj….
salman delivered 5 block busters and 1 atbb in just 4 years!!…wanted ( 1st superhit , later elevated to blockbuster status) , dabangg (atbb), ready , bodyguard , ett , dabangg 2….. !!!
power of salman !!! and still some idiots saying salman’s next will be disaster…!!
@ baap if jthj was an accepted film then it would have done highest 2nd week collections.. instead jthj did only 15 cr in 2nd week.. note dabangg 2 did 20 crore in 2nd weekend and 37 crore in 2nd week.. if you still saying that dabangg 2 under-performed..!!
ok forget RGV.
If SOS released on that screens on which JTHJ released & vice varsa.?
@NVS.Dude, r u kidding me?
Haven’t u read my full comment?? I said that only SRK is giving tough competition to salman (current B.O. king).What was wrong in it???
Anyone can see 4 SRK movies in the list, means he is right up there with Salman.
Now it’s an answer for those one, who consider that SRK’s stardom is below ranbir, ajay etc as of now.
So, why no ranbir or ajay movies in this list???
Again, u said that SRK is out of phase. So, i want to ask to u that is it a joke or u r serious???
If u r serious, then u shud think twice before making any comment…!!!
If SRK is giving 4 consecutive 200+ cr movies and finds a place in top 10 grossers, in his so called out of phase, then i seriously worry about other actors like ranbir,aamir, hrithik etc, bcoz they are far behind SRK.
@NVS.Well. I can guess your reaction .
You said that i can guess the reactions of SRK fans.But i don’t think that why you guys involve SRK in your each comment.Your idol is leading the list.He has 4 movies in top 5, still you are having trouble.Why???
Bcoz SRK is also in the list.
I can easily conclude that if any other star movies would have found a place in this list, then your reaction could have different.But it’s SRK name, bcoz of which, you bound to make a comment.
I can’t understand , why you guys feel so insecure with his name and why you spread so much negativity about him.
@baap. Srk is going “out of phase” because he is in a great dilemma of which genre movies to do. After his back to back bbs(chak de& rnbj) at his peak he tried the sci fi action magnum opus, 125+ crore ra.1 (the greatest movie ever made by the humans), then a world class stylish action thriller don2 (the best action thriller ever made) and a romantic jthj(the best and greatest romantic movie one can/could ever see). As per BOI, the indian b.o collections of ra.1 > don2 > jthj, so not only is srk sliding down, his own ‘genre-confusion’ & the simultaneous over shadowing of him by other smaller actors, has made srk to be in ‘out of phase’. At this stage of his career, he is too old to do his favorite and most successful ‘ chocolaty/box next door/ running around the trees’ type of romantic movies , nor can he do movies like barfi or ghajini or agneepath and nor can he do the ‘out-and-out/over-the-top/ larger-than-life’ masala action entertainers though he is troubling rohit shetty for his chennai express. (movies like chak de are made once in a lifetime & dont come too often, oso was not a desi masala action, it was more a desi comical horror/horror comedy movie).
@NVS. and dude.Come outside from ur dream that it’s not the best phase of salman,his best is about to come.So what do you think that his best will come in his old days, when he gets so much older to make action seens as he does these days.Talk logically bro.
As a SRK fan, i know very well that SRK will work for max 4-5 years more, then he won’t be in a position to do lead roles.But according to you, i think salman will retire from the industry doing lead roles???Just wait and watch.
And as far as direction or good scripts are concerned, let him do suraj’s movie or anyother script based movies, then we will see the result.
Haven’t we see the result of script based movies like veer,yuvraj and london dreams???
it’s only masala , action which suits on him and people love watching him in these genres.If he will deviate from these genres, then mark my words, we will again see a salman khan of marigold days.
And you are not here, bcoz you are a fan of salman, but bcoz you are a SRK hater…!!
One can see your frustation in your comment.
You have given salman’s next as 275+ cr, OUATIM as 235+ cr, but for CE only 225+ cr.
Are you sure that you are talking logically.
As we all know that OUATIM and salman’s next are going to clash.So, the collections will not affected???
And for a moment, if we concider that These movies won’t clash, then are you sure that OUATIM will collect more than CE worldwide???
@baap. yes, “yrf need salman and salman doesnt need yrf”, ett is yrf’s biggest india as well as worldwide grosser only because of a presence called “SALMAN” in the one & only salman+yrf collaboration.
So you call a 148+ crores net record breaking BB as a big disappointment, then what will you call last year’s diwali dhamaka JTHJ with the greatest of hypes & expecations doing only 103 crores net in india (at that time acc to some srk fans: the superstar with 3.2 billion fans would easily crush a cheap crap SOS which was releasing at the same time and jthj will do more than 400 crores worldwide) ?
What ever the reasons may be or are, the bottom line is : JTHJ is a 103 crore “HIT” & dabaang2 is a 148++ crore “BLOCKBUSTER”.
@king. You are correct in saying that srk will not last for more than 5 years as a leading superstar but i am pretty sure that salman will continue to rule much more than 5 years. If salman is ‘genre-specific’ then so is srk, you cant expect a srk doing dabaang 4 and collecting more than 150 crores in india but a salman doing jthj 2 will atleast earn 140 crores net in india just on basis of his mega stardom. Jthj even after earning a huge 78+ crores in overseas, has a worldwide gross of < 215 crores, so due to expect a rohit shetty masala film to do as much as jthj in overseas? Unless ce is very good it will not do more than 130 crores in india but a 100 crore is given however crap it may be, afterall it is a rohit shetty film who doesnt have the words "excellent,fantastic" in his mental dictionary. Yes salman's next 2 movies radhe/mental & kick will do more 275 worldwide each and ouatm2, if it is good, can do 235 crores.
Salman Khan can’t act in my opinion. SRK was fine in JTHJ. Their movies become blockbusters due to their huge fanbase. Dabangg, Dabangg 2 and Bodyguard are nonsense films with no substance but they are entertaining due to the dishum dishum and the men-flying-in-the-air-when-Salman-kicks. ETT was an above average movie.
SRK’s movies are romantic and he is a good actor. JTHJ was a movie which was baseless (no offense to Yashji). I mean why would a girl leave her love just because of God? And the story itself is just baseless.
In that list, 3 Idiots definitely tops!

@king. Yes srk has given 4 200+ worldwide grossers in a row but we all know the collections are mainly because of high overseas collections but in contrast salman’s high worldwide grossers are mainly because of the mammoth indian b.o collections and low overseas collections. According to boi, ra.1 > don 2 > jthj at the indian box office and if not for high overseas collections, jthj would not have grossed more than 200 crores. So srk is in a ‘declining’ phase and out of phase, in the sense that he is confused of what movies to do (srk fans will contradict it by arguing that he is trying to do something different or something new, but the truth is that whatever he is doing is just not working). Salman is very clear about what movies he will do for his fans and so his fans have no problems or complaints except for srk fans & his haters who always ‘beat the drums’ by saying that salman is doing only certain types of movies or remakes or this or that and blah blah blah. Ranbir & ajay are not as bigger stars as srk globally but in india their movies, though not consistently, but definitely have done as much business as srk’s. And lastly, salman is in good phase but i think he is yet to achieve his ‘best phase’. Srk’s superstardom peaked & saturated during the chak de, rnbj days but salman’s stardom has not even peaked to its possible 100%, its only 80% as of now, so he is still to attain his best, so wait for the super glory to unfold in the future.
@NVS.Dude. Decline in B.O. collections of a superstar like SRK never means that he is out of phase.
Look at salman khan.At the time of marigold, Jaan-E-man,kyuki,london dreams,veer etc, who had thought that he will give 5 consecutive blockbusters.But he did it.
So if SRK is currently out of phase (according to you), then i think in that era, salman was PHASE-LESS.
So, if a PHASE-LESS guy can make such an emphatic come back, then its not a big deal for SRK, as i said in my first comment.
Coming to salman, i think you are contradicting yourself.Earlier, you said that Salman’s 100% will come, when he will work on a good script.
And now you are saying that he is excellent with his choices, so his movies are performing well.
Can i know the reason of this contradictory statement of yours???
I, do agree with your last comment that salman has wisely selected the scripts, which suits him.
thats why he is flying on seventh heaven.
Bcoz earlier we have seen the performance of his movies before wanted and dabangg.
So, he grasped this formula clearly that what do audiences want from him???
So he is working on those scripted and enjoying contineous success.
But again i am saying that whenever he will give up action/masala, he will surely get a downfall.
In case of SRK, you can watch it easily that when he enjoyed his peak (2000-2008), then he got a mis-conception, that whatever i will produce, people will like it.
So, he has produced movies like Ra-one,JTHJ, whose story line was not as good as people expect from a typical SRK film.
So, he faced a downfall in his collection (He got 4 consecutive 200 cr+ only because of his fan following).To be honest, i feel that out of these four movies, only Don-2 and MNIK were meet the standards.
So, stardom is not something, which stick with anyone all over his life.Rather, its something, which comes to you as long as you meet certain requirements.
And the same is happening in case of salman.He is doing those roles, which is appreciated by his fans.So, he is riding over success.
@king. Dude, declining b.o collections indicates declining stardom, declining fan following & declining b.o clout , so there’s no denying that. You still dont seem to get what i actually mean by “out of phase”, because you seem so be disillusioned and out of touch with reality. Salman’s loyal fan following never diminished worryingly even during his worst phase and he was one superstar who was always destined to be unpredictable yet mighty effective at the b.o even without good script,director,banner & etc. Salman was really in “fading phase” during his most troublesome period, because everything was working against him and he was going no where and he was almost orphaned by the bollywood but even during that time his significant number of loyal fans always supported him, for he was a ‘rare & special’ superstar of bollywood. salman made a thumping come back because he is “SALMAN KHAN” (only a salman could have done after what all he went through in his life ) but i dont think srk can do that because he is just shahrukh khan and that srk who is clearly struggling in the pale shadow of his own stardom. Why i feel srk cant make a strong come back is because
1. He has become a ‘bigger star too old’ to act in his most successful & favorite romantic genres and gen-next stars like ranbir,emraan,imraan will most probably replace him in such genres.
2. If he tries to take risks doing different genres (like mnik, paheli, ra.1 etc) other than masala/action entertainers for too long at the stage of his career when he is struggling to hold his ground against his contemporaries, then he would most probably put his hard earned stardom itself at stake and knowing srk, he will always play safe like how salman is doing these days.
3. The most prefered genre these days, the action entertainer/masala genre is totally dominated by salman, akki,ajay and srk stands no chance against these stars in these genre.
4. Most importantly srk has passed his prime and whatever fan following he has is steadily but surely decreasing. Yes he too has some ‘forever loyal’ fans like salman but they are not enough to stop the sinking ship called srk from getting drowned..
@king. Your misunderstanding of my comments doesnt make me self contradictory. I repeat it again, salman is yet to achieve his 100% peak. Salman fans have no problem with his movies, as he is making movies for them and they will try to make every movie of his into bbs, but when he works with good scripts, great directors & bigger banners he will get that “UNIVERSALITY” i.e critics & class+mass viewers universal acceptance as well as mind boggling collections in both india & overseas like 3 idiots (critics always slam his movies & classes dont like his movies as much as srk’s or aamir’s and even then his movies are becoming bbs). Salman’s movies are working big time mainly because of his incredible star power and not because they are classics or quality movies. Only salman can turn an ordinary movie into a bb & conversely a good script into a flop as is the case with some of his earlier movies. That’s is why they say: salman ki wajha se he movies chalthe hai and not the other way round. Only 3 types of movies made in india
2.bad movie and
3.salman khan movie…
NVS… really good explntion… espcilly category of movies:
3.Salman Khan movie
u’re right.Only Salman Bhai can achieve something that seems impssible become possible.
salute to u,NVS
and long live Salman Bhai
@NVS.Till now, i came to know that you are a typical salman fan and whatever i will say about salman, you will not get agree on it.
but again i want to correct you.You are saying that salman has a LOYAL fan base during all over his career.So, may i know, where were these LOYAL fans gone, when salman desparately needed a hit movie, let alone blockbusters.
If any actor has such a loyal fan base , then he should easily get atleast a hit.Like in the case of SRK, you can see, a movie like Ra-one earned more than 100cr.
But why salman produced back to back disasters, flops or average movies and then when he has his own LOYAL fan base.
Coming to big banners and salman, Do you know the producers/directors of yuvraj,london- dreams,jaan-e-man,kyunki,marigold etc??
These all have big banners and established directors.
Like the showman of bollywood subhas ghai in yuvraj (after yuvraj, he failed to direct a single movie as he disappointed mentally as well as economically),vipul shah in london dreams, sirish and sajid nadiawala for jaan-e-man and priyadarshan for kyuki.
So according to you, with those movies, salman should have enjoyed ATBB’s.
Again i am saying, salman is enjoying his peak and he will enjoy it as long as he will play safe.Whenever he will try to change his track, at the same time, he will face a fall in his collections.
And by the way, your emotional dialogues like there are three kinds of movies in India
Goood film,bad film and salman khan film are nothing more than an EMOTIONAL ATYACHAAR.
Bcoz we have seen both good films as well as bad films of salman and if we make a list, then unfortunately, the word BAD will be written more times than GOOD.
Long live the emperor khan – the most awaited picture of 2013 is Radhe / Mental & Kick.
@Baap, don’t u knor there are three things in india which are enjoyed by indians
and D2 was affected due to the indo-pak matches, 3I was not. On the other hand JTHJ was released on India’s longest vacation period but could’nt cross 130 mark.
Though some news channels are gossiping about SRK’s bad phase he still has the maximum success percentage(62.5%) way ahed of other stars. Salman is enjoying his success just as Akshay has done earlier in the year 2007-2008 when Akshay used to deliver back to back blockbusters just like Salman what is doing right now but then Akshay films did miserably bad at the box office as he was then doing same thing in every film. Right now Salman is repeating same kind of roles in every film which will cause irritations in people’s mind in no time. Its just a matter of fact. And can anyone honestly tell me which Salman’s so called Blockbuster films are being remembered for their content? Do they have any repeat value or have any cult status? I can predict these phase of Salman Khan will stay for maximum one year. Don’t forget before Wanted Salman did not able deliver single hit at box office for a long long time. Salman may be a star but hardly an actor. Thats my opinion what yours?
@king, but i already knew that you were a typical srk fan and would ask these questions at some time or the other. i could give you a hundred answers for your each & every question but what’s the use if you dont get convinced or satisfied or contended with my answers, as any way you wouldnt agree with me. Salman always had ‘LOYAL’ fans from his hahk days, but the numbers were not as big as they are today. When i say LOYALS, they are the die hard,devoted,eternal fans of a star & will never change their loyalty towards other stars. For example, in india, prior to 2010, suppose that salman had 2 crore ‘LOYALS’ + 8 crore non-loyals(ordinary fans/ neutrals/any movie goer other than a loyal fan who can watch any movie of any actor) and srk had 4 crore ‘LOYALS’ + 11 crore non-loyals (srk being a bigger star will have more non-loyals), then obviously srk’s movie will earn more than salman’s movie and has less chances of becoming a flop compared to salman’s. If only the 2 crore LOYALS watch every salman movie, then they will more or less flop but even if only the 4 crore LOYALS watch every srk movie, they will not flop unless they are high budget movies. Because of this very reason, srk’s movies earned consistently better than salman’s. its not the LOYALS who determine the eventual fate of the movie, but its the number of LOYALS+ non-loyals i.e the total audience who watch a movie (which depends on n number of factors) and srk was much better in this respect.
@Redwan JTHJ was released along with SOS. Dabbang 2 had the widest release ever in India and it was released in maximum screens during the christmas holidays. Salman is doing same thing in every film. People will surely get bored after a period of time. Remember, same thing happened with Akshay Kumar when he was doing comedy in every film and can you please tell me which Salman Khan’s so called blockbuster movies get cult status. Salman may be a star but hardly an actor.
@king. Yes ghai,priyadarshan were good directors and yuvraaj,kyon ki & london dreams were not bad movies but they werent that good either and they flopped. Honestly i cant give any concrete reasons why they failed, for they never deserved to flop in the first place. No one can give a perfect reason why a movie like swades (one of the best movies ever made by a great director with the biggest star at that time ) didnt became a bb when it actually deserved a atbb status.
@king. For loyal srk fans, every salman movie will blindly appear as a bad movie and for loyal salman fans every srk movie is as bad as his irritating acting. Salman is on a roll and in his elements and hence he is playing safe and he has every right to do whatever movie he wants to do, no one is stopping srk or any other actor from doing the movies that salman is doing. 5 blockbusters in a row and many in waiting, salman is looking just unstoppable at the indian b.o that’s why they the saying
“MOVIES YA TO BHAGWAN KE BAROSE CHALTHE HAI YA SALMAN KE BAROSE”. :-)
@NVS.Oh.so i am not convincing….???
Did you watch your comment, what you are writing in..???
At the time, when everyone knows that salman is enjoying his peak time, you are saying that his best is about to come , when he will work with established directors or banners, and when i reminded you about those well known directors, with whome he worked in past and given back to back flops, then you are saying that you don’t have any answer…!!!
And i am not getting your concern about LOYAL fans.If you are saying that salman has less no. of loyal fans, but he got the support of all neutral one’s and hence his movies are performing well, then tell me, which actor doesn’t have their own LOYAL fan base???
I think in this case Imran hashmi and Tushar Kapoor will also claim their LOYAL fans irrespective of the numbers.
Actually to all of your comments, i have a single reply that let wait and watch.
Let salman come without this larger than life characters and when he will get such blockbusters with those roles(which he currently enjoying), then i will accept this fact that “MOVIES YA TO BHAGWAN KE BAROSE CHALTHE HAI YA SALMAN KE BAROSE”.
But i think it will be a haste making such comments as of now.
@king. Dude, you are always maintaining that salman has already peaked to his summit but i am arguing that salman is still peaking and would peak to the fullest probably after 2 years (considering his exciting projects like radhe/mental, kick, no entry mei entry, bade bhai (sooraj’s movie), sher khan which all are the potential blockbuster materials in waiting. I feel that atleast one of these movies, most probably kick will do more than 200+ crores net in india & 70+ crores net overseas). There is a every possibility that all these movies will become bbs whatever their order may be, 5 bbs in a row as of now & 5 more in a row to happen, would take it to an unprecedented, unbelievable & ‘history-indelible’ 10 bbs in a row for salman! If he continues to churn out bbs after bbs and continues to lord over bollywood like no one else, then how can anyone determine the ‘highest peak point’ of salman. You may feel that i am day dreaming but even then, if there is one megastar in bollywood who can make these dreams into possible realities, then its got to be the ‘man of his own destiny’, ‘the predictably unpredictable & unpredictably predictable enigma of bollywood’ , the one and only salman khan.
@king. As i said earlier i can’t give you strong, convincing enough reasons for his earlier flops but what i could give is only excuses, the same way you would give if i ask you why the real masterpieces & once-in-a-life time classics like dil se & swades flopped in india. I forgot to add in my earlier comment at 6:17 p.m that the number of salman LOYALS have increased exponentially since 2010 and in 2013 salman has more LOYALS as srk. Even tushaar,imraan have LOYAL fans but they are probably in hundreds and not huge enough alone to make their movies into ‘hits’. Every superstar has LOYAL fans, but the biggest deciding factor is the sheer number of them and in that order, salman’s LOYALS > srk’s > aamir’s > akki’s > hrithik’s.
@king. I have already repeated many times that salman will do the roles and movies which his fans expect him to do and his fans want him to see only in larger-than-life or entertaining roles. If salman fans have no problem with his roles & movies, why will salman have any problem? No salman fan wants salman to do roles like barfi or paa or koi mil gaya, because we know salman is not that good a actor to do such roles but at the same time we dont want salman to do a plain dumb ordinary love story or some other such roles which cant utilise his incredible screen presence. By now you must be aware of the fact that many people, especially the masses are going for a salman’s movie only to watch him on the screen and they dont even care what is the script of the movie or who is the movie’s actress or director or producer or xyz. As long as salman entertains the way they want him to entertain them, it will keep raining money at the box office.
