Highest Overseas Collection of 2017: Raees still tops

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

2017 has proven to be a poor year for Bollywood releases as far the overseas business is concerned. Only one film has been able to leave a mark in overseas so far.

Shahrukh Khan starrer Raees tops the list which collected $13.5 million. It is an excellent number considering that the genre was not overseas friendly and also release period was not favourable. But a big number has come due to the presence of Shahrukh Khan who enjoys a crazy following in overseas.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania stands at the second spot. Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are quickly emerging as the dependable stars not in India but also in overseas. Jolly LLB 2 collected in the same range as most of the recent films of Akshay Kumar. Airlift, Housefull 3, Rustom and JLLB2 have collected in the range of $5-6.5 million. He needs a big grosser in India and also in overseas.

Kaabil is at the 4th position and just manged to recover the price. Hrithik Roshan was once a big draw in international markets but it is not the case anymore. There is not much to talk about the rest of the films.

Recent release Raabta is a disaster in overseas also. It stands lower than films like Sarkar 3 and Commando 2.

            @Mahachuth
            Don’t try to classify everyone as Indians, Pakistani are not Indians are they! Arabs are not Indians are they! Germans are not Indians are they! His most collections comes from Indians agreed, but a lot of the collections comes from foreign countries who are not Indians also!

            Are you mad when did Tom Cruise make 400cr in China? Lol

            You can’t compare Bollywood actors to Hollywood actors!
            Hollywood actors have a much bigger cinema in terms of collections because the ticket prices are much higher than India ticket prices!

            Joh usne 20 saal main kiya woh tera baap tho nahin kar sakta tho pir kyun bhok raha hai?!

            Academy awards main usko king of Bollywood kahan gaya tha!

      All I see is haters everywhere, but it’s all good, Stardom Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan are light years ahead of Aamir Khan

      • Ghanta stardom. Stardom ka meaning pata hain tujhe. 200 Crore buisness nehi kar pata hain aur SRK star hain kaha se lata hain itna ghatiya logic.

        • Kings of Bollywood Reply

          Aise tho Dangal ne most of Tom Cruise ke movie se zyaada collection kiya china main, tho Aamir Khan zyaada famous hai kya! Huh?!

          In the highest grossing movie of the world, no big superstar is in there, Bahubali 2 highest grosser of India so Prabhas is bigger than Aamir. Salman and Shah Rukh Khan!

          Shah Rukh Khan matlab ke stardom!

  3. Highest overseas collection of 2017 is Bahubali. But I guess you meant Bollywood.

  4. Poor Makki even Varun stardom is even Greater than his and his stupid fans are out there om indicine talking trash on Baadshaho jouurnal.

    JHMS will do excellent business in overseas without any Eid or Xmas.

  7. We all know that srk is not doing any business but he is the biggest star in overseas and bollywood is know thanks to him..
    Just think about dilwale collected 27 million and was a poor movie..
    We all know that Amir is doing big business Thanks to China, Credit to him..

    may be it was not a overseas friendly film but it was definetly a mass friendly film but still varun dhawan’s bkd collected more than this film in the mass centers despite not being a mass friendly film , that speaks about srk’s ao called stardom.
    i think now people should stop giving excuses to defend srk he has to make a comeback with his next few films unless he is bound to finish with a mediocre career.
    and people who thinks srk has a brilliant career and once he ruled this is for them
    hritik vs srk ( 2000-16 ) career comparison

    1. blockbusters
    hritik-5
    srk-5
    verdict- equal
    2. all time blockbusters
    hr-0
    srk-0
    verdict-equal
    3. all time grossers
    hr-1
    srk-1
    verdict- equal
    4. highest grosser of the year
    hr-3
    srk-3
    verdict-equal
    5. 2 crore plus footfall films
    hr- 4
    srk-4
    verdict- equal
    6. 3 crore plus footfall films
    hr-2
    srk-1
    verdict- hr ahead
    7. record breaking opening day( solo films considered)
    hr-4
    srk-2
    verdict- hr ahead
    8. record breaking opening weekend( solo films considered)
    hr-4
    srk-4
    verdict- equal

    so this century hr has been slightly ahead of srk. hr debuted in 2000, since then out of the major 8 boxoffice achievements hr has been leading in 2 and in the next other 6 things he is equal with srk. here one thing is needed to be mentioned that hr has no release in 2005, 07 ,09 and 15 while srk has a release every year. but despite of that he is ahead of hritik in nothing. if hritik had a release every year he would have beaten srk by a huge margin in every boxoffice aspect.

    so the truth is though srk fans dream that srk is bigger or equal to salman or aamir actually he is lagging behind even hritik in this century. before that hritik was absent.

      @dishonest man
      Are you including worldwide collections because you have lost it!
      Shah Rukh Khan was way ahead of Hrithik Roshan from 2000-16
      Worldwide he always gave the highest grosser of the year until 2009! And after that too Shah Rukh Khan is way ahead of Hrithik Roshan!

      You are just including what you want!

  11. Eid or Xmas pe apni movie release kr k collection jyada krna koi following nhi hoti…or wo solo release……
    Agr dm h clash m aao….or srk 26 jan clash m aaya or 26 jan pe release sbi filmo se jyada collection kiya……
    Wo bat alg h ki fan k time srk ki kuch controversy ho gyi thi or koi movie dekhne nhi gya.

    Honest man, Hrithik is ahead of SRK.lol.All these record which u have mentioned Hrithik achieved in last decade.in this decade he has nothing except from Krrish 3 and agneepath. At present he is not able to give 10 crore opening.Both MD and kaabil opening was below 10 crore.though both films clashed but in same time Dilwale and Raees also faced clash but opened to 20+ crores.
    Success ratio – SRK – 56.14%
    HR- 50%
    Hit ratio – SRK – 47.36% HR – 50%
    HR have little better hit ratio .I will not talk about no of hit and flop films as Hrithik had done only 21 films in his career compared to SRK who did 60 films.
    Hrithik was no. 2 actor in last decade but now he is not in top 5.even Varun and Akshay are ahead of him.I hope your tiny brain understand something.

    Honest man, also add that SRK had 2 ATHG as OSO was 1st declared as athg but every site (including BOI )reduced its collection later.In this achievement SRK is ahead of HR.please don’t tell that this is false .Everybody knows that OSO was said to be as ATHG.

    @prashant abhishek i am not talking about current situation , i am talking about overall career. hritik debuted in 2000 and from that time his number of blockbusters, atbbs, atgs, hgoty are equal to srk and he has more record openers. it is despite of the fact that he has been absent in many years in that period . is it not shocking as srk is considered to be a superstar and hritik is not given much importance . this proves how much trade sites and media are biased towards srk.
    how can you say hritik was number 2 last decade . he was number 1. when mk and mb clashed mk took a much better start. hritik had more record openers last decade and even his flop films opened huge. inface even aamir was ahead of srk in the last decade in terms of opening. he has the most number record openers among all the actors last decade. so hritik was number 1 , aamir number 2 and srk number 3 last decade. it was a close competition between aamir and hritik for the top spot , srk was down and out in front of those two stars.
    yes currently hritik is totaly down and out but in overall career he is ahead of srk.
    and i follow boi.com and they don’t say oso was an all time grosser. infact no website says that. what old boi.com said does not matter because according to them mb, dtph and darr were not blockbusters so srk has only 7 blockbusters in his epic career , so also follow that.

  17. Prashant abhishek Reply

    Blabber how much u can.not only I but according to indicine SRK ruled the previous decade.and opening day become the big factor in this decade.in previous decade films just released on about 500 screens.even small actor film took good opening.so opening wasn’t the big achievement in last or 90s decade.Apart from records an actor have to be consistent.HR had a series of flops .so how he ruled the previous decade. It is not possible that an actor’s every film take a record opening.HR only ruled in 2006 when both his films worked big.Apart from that He was just a decent star in previous decade.

  18. The after-effect of giving attention to Dishonest Joker’s jokes–plentiful laughs..!! Let’s see 2000-2009’s analysis between SRK and Hrithik( SRK’s extended cameos in Hey Ram and Billu not included). Total films, SRK-20, Hrithik-15:

    Success Ratio:
    SRK-70%
    Hrithik-53.3%( even after doing less number of films)

    Hit Ratio:
    SRK-60%
    Hrithik-33.3%(almost half of SRK’s, even after doing less films than SRK)

    Blockbuster Ratio:
    SRK 20%
    Hrithik-26.7% ( including K3G where SRK was the lead)

    So Hrithik wasn’t even in competition. SRK’s hits=2*Hrithiks Hits, SRK’s success=almost 2*Hrithik’s success. That too after doing only 5 movies more than Hrithik. Blockbusters were same.

    Aamir had the highest Success Ratio, Hit Ratio and Blockbuster Ratio in 2000-2009. Now let’s compare SRK and Aamir’s (9 films) films:

    Aamir’s Hits-6
    SRK’s Hits-12 (2*Aamir’s hits)

    Aamir’s Success-7
    SRK’s Success-14( 2*Aamir’s success)

    And all of SRK’s films were big films with big earnings, not small films and small hits. Let’s not even talk about Overseas where SRK molested each and every actor. Record openings, record weekends and 6 Highest Grosser of the year of India worldwide, 5 of them were back to back. So even Aamir wasn’t any competition. Hrithik had a transient stardom right after Kaho Na Pyar Hai craze but that didn’t implement into successful films and he was no competition. That’s why all trade sites agree that SRK was No.1 from 1992-2009. Case Closed.

    Oh no, we forgot another competitor, Sallu the Gangu Teli who delivered record number of Flops, Disasters and Clash Defeats and he had the prestigious achievement of lagging behind “Great stars” like Saif Ali Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Tushshar Kapoor, Rakhi Sawant etc. We shouldn’t forget him and should also include him in our consideration…!!

    • @NN

      bhai , dimag kharab h kya ?

      • You can neither write nor read. It was an assessment of 2000″s decade. And on which planet does Aamir have more than 15 hits?I follow BOI and tingu Aamir has some 14hits according to BoI

        • @NN

          gochumal BoI ne 1994 tk hi list de rha h…..

          dil , qsqt ,jo jita vhi sikandar , hm h rahi pyar k….us list me shamil nhi h

          lagaan , dil chahta h , RDB , fanaah , TZp , gazni , 3idots ,dhoom3 , pk , dangal…

          10 hits h…..

          • Bhikari Aamir’s JJWS, HHRPK, DCH etc aren’t hits. He has poor Hit ratio.

  19. @Prashant Abhishekh- Don’t worry bro, he is a Hit and Run Bhagoda Criminal’s fan. To him flops and disasters don’t matter since Gangu Teli sallu has the highest Flops and Disasters among Khans, the most cringeworthy and detestable career among Khans. That’s why he can’t tolerate his ill fate and is after SRK 24/7. Or might be he is Shera, just bodyguarding Gangu Teli sallu :-D :-D
