Salman vs SRK vs Aamir: Box Office Performance in this decade

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

This decade opened on a high note as there was good growth in yearly business. However, Bollywood films have underperformed in the last couple of years. With just two years left, one hopes that this decade will end on a high.

Khans are still the biggest crowd puller in India. It has been an interesting turn of events especially for Salman and Aamir as far the box office is concerned. Shahrukh Khan, on the other hand, has not been able to match them but has been consistent.

Salman Khan:

Salman was enjoying the best phase of his career post 2010. He has delivered 8 blockbusters in this decade only. His golden run has come to an end with Tubelight which is his first outright failure. But still, he is the biggest superstar in India right now as the stats suggest so.

Shahrukh Khan:

SRK has struggled to deliver a big grosser in this decade as he has only one blockbuster. Though the main reason is due to the average content of his films. Almost his all releases have taken excellent initials but have struggled on weekdays. Also, he is the only one among Khans to face box office clashes with biggies.

Aamir Khan:

Aamir is the one to set new benchmarks with his each release. After Talaash, his all films have gone on to become all time grossers in India, overseas and worldwide. His average is the best among Khans. However, the only drawback is that he does few films.

Salman Khan will have at least 4 more release before this decade will end. So he will probably go much ahead as compared to other superstars. SRK has an important Christmas release next year which can put him back on track. Aamir, on the other hand, has only one confirmed release, Thugs of Hindostan which will release next year on Diwali. It will be interesting to see how it will perform as his biggest hits have been released on Christmas earlier.

  4. Aamir is in his own league. Compeition should be between SRK and Salman only. And comparison should be of full career
    Copying a comment by a fellow commenter @NN

    Let’s see overall career:
    Lifetime:
    1992—-SRK>sallu
    1993— SRK> sallu
    1994- sallu> SRK (due to Madhuri’s favour)
    1995-SRK> sallu
    1996—SRK> sallu( Jeet isn’t Gangu Teli’s film. Chahat>Khamoshi)
    1997—SRK> sallu
    1998—SRK> sallu
    1999—sallu>SRK
    2000—sallu> SRK
    2001—SRK> sallu
    2002—SRK> sallu
    2003—SRK> sallu
    2004—-SRK> sallu
    2005—sallu> SRK(Maine Pyar kyu kia> paheli. No Entry isn’t Gangu teli’s film)
    2006—-SRK> sallu
    2007—-SRK> sallu
    2008—-SRK> sallu
    2009—-Gangu Teli sallu 1 superhit and 2 Disasters>SRK absent
    2010—-sallu >SRK
    2011—-sallu> SRK
    2012—sallu> SRK
    2013—SRK> sallu(absent)
    2014—-SRK>sallu
    2015—-sallu>SRK
    2016—sallu>SRK
    2017- sallu> SRK
    So in 26 years 15 times SRK>>>11 times Gangu Teli sallu.

    Opening:
    This is THE OPENING.
    1992—-KING KHAN> sallu
    1993—-KING KHAN> sallu
    1994—-KING KHAN> sallu
    1995—-KING KHAN> sallu
    1996—-SRK> sallu (Jeet isn’t Gangu Teli’s film. Chahat opening> other Gangu Teli’s film)
    1997—-KING KHAN> sallu
    1998—-KING KHAN> sallu
    1999—- sallu>KING KHAN
    2000—-sallu>King Khan
    2001—-KING KHAN> sallu
    2002—-KING KHAN> sallu
    2003—-KING KHAN> sallu
    2004—-KING KHAN> sallu
    2005—- sallu> KING KHAN
    2006—-KING KHAN> sallu
    2007—-KING KHAN> sallu
    2008—-KING KHAN> sallu
    2009—- sallu> King Khan(absent)
    2010—- sallu>KING KHAN
    2011—- sallu>KING KHAN
    2012—- sallu>KING KHAN
    2013—-SRK> sallu (absent)
    2014—- King Khan>sallu.
    2015—- sallu> KING KHAN
    2016– sallu>SRK
    2017- sallu>SRK(as he has Christmas and Eid)
    So in 26 years SRK 16 times >>>> sallu 10 times.
    Let’s look at other achievments of Gangu Teli:

    Number of flops sallu =2* SRK’s flops
    Number of Disasters of sallu= 3* SRK’s Disasters( Let BOI update whole 90’s, the number of flops and Disasters will increase for sallu)
    According to BOI: Success Ratio of SRK>>>>>success ratio of sallu(huge difference)
    HIt Ratio of SRK>>>>> Hit ratio of sallu(Huge difference)
    Blockbuster Ratio of SRK>Blockbuster Ratio of sallu(small difference)
    Sallu’s achievement in Clash:

    In 1990s sallu lost these clashes
    -Biwi ho to aisi vs sone pe suhaaga(madhuri)
    -Kurbaan vs 100 days-Suryabanshi vs Panaah(nasserudheen shah)
    -Nischai vs Julm ki Hukumat(govinda)
    -Dil tera aashiq vs ek hi raasta
    -Chandramukhi vs Ek hi Raasta(Ajay)
    -Chand ka tukdaa vs Naaraj
    -Sangdil sanam vs HHB(akki)
    -Andaaz apna apna vs suhaag
    -Agni sakshi vs Yeh Majhdar(nan patekar)
    -Auzaar vs Juddai(anil kapoor)
    -Probably Chamatkar vs Jaagruti(Though not updated but as per IBOS) in 90s clash-1992 with SRK

    In last decade
    -Phir milenge vs Dhoom(uday chopra)
    -SKPGY vs Anthony kaun hai(arshad warsi)
    -Don vs Jaaneman(SRK)
    -Saawan vs Positive(Akshay Khanna)
    -MAMK vs Blue vs All the best
    -Andaaz apna apna vs suhaag
    -marigold vs buddha margaya(Rakhi sawant,)
    -God tussi great ho vs bachna ae haseeno(Ranbir kapoor)

    The stats clearly show that Gangu Teli sallu wasn’t even a star before 2010.

    Indeed SRK in his lifetime can’t surpass this achievements and records. That’s the fate of SRK, cause sallu has indeed contributed in the history of Flops, Disasters and Clash Defeats. 😂😂

    Plus Madhuri dixit without Suraj Barjatya from 1990-1997
    Dil-Blockbuster-HGOTY
    Khalnayak-Record opener with Sanjay Dutt-Blockbuster
    Saajan-HGOTY-solo heroine
    Beta-Blockbuster
    Raja-BB with C grade hero Sanjay Kapoor(Footfalls more than Blockbuster like Mohra)
    DTPH-BB with a megastar, no big deal

    Salman without Sooraj Barjatya or Shah Rukh Khan(as a solo hero)
    What to say???

    This decade
    Solo Eid Release-115cr, Real value=60 crore LOL

    Doodh ka doodh pani ka pani!!

        Mujhe bhi pura yakeen hai ke Tubelight flop ho gay!

  9. Good very good but I think ki Akshay NE Jo speed pakdi he us hisab se ane wale samay me wo in teeno KO takkar DE sakta he har sal 3 Ya 4 movie Kara he or har movie 100 se upar jari he well done akki

    But but but in teeno NE bhi Jo apni jagah bana rakhi he use defend krna bhi asan nhi over all 6 hi to super star he Aj Warna Bollywood ki nayya kon bachayga youngsters me itna dum ni he abhi unko time lagega set hone me
    BTW 6 super star
    Amir
    Salman
    Shahrukh
    Akshay
    Ajay
    Hritik

    • Fan wars aside i agree and have no doubt’s about Ajay and Hrithik superstardom but BUT they now have to be wise with their scripts and do what Akki is doing which is mixing big and small budget movies. Akshay has impressed me the most amongst the Non khans superstars AAH(akki ajay hrtk). He is the closest now to the Khans based on box office verdicts.
      Not anyone just like that be it franchise or National holiday deliver 300 million rupees on a single day! Hrithik and Ajay has done so a fleet only the Khans have delivered. Both of their movies can not be missed be you any fan but their content of recent has been average. Hope they can bring back their old selves. Akki needs a big grosser but i dont think its a MUST as long as he delivers his Hits verdict. Ajay and Hrithik crossed 100 crs (producer) with below average and average verdicts which says alot about their content and doing expensive movies so they shoul change!! As for the 3,Khans Aamir has a very beautiful fairy tale at the Box office but he needs to do more movies if not the glory will always go to Salman and Shah Rukh. Overall yes Bollywood belongs to these 6 superstars
      Aamir
      Salman
      Srk
      Akshay
      Hrithik
      Ajay.
      Varun and Ranbir have to do half the numbers of movies Akki Ajay Srk Salman did in their 1st 5 years which is phenomenal! Right now they are Golden spoon fed boys with big banners always supporting them unlike Akki Ajay who even rejected movies with Supersrar Directors and producers back then. Hrithik had some comfort zone to be honest like SRK in their Early and mid careers. Lets even be honest in 90s Akki and Ajay movies opened bigger than Salman and Aamir movies and had more successful movies than them but post 2008 everything changed back to Salman and Aamir favour. Srk case he still remains the most consistent Khan in the industry but sadly Aamir and Salman strategy have been more lucky with their game plans and now Akshay kumar too has reinvented himself.

  10. Bollywood arena please update spider man & MOM Saturday collection

  11. Lool SRK: 50% of movies all clashes. .. only 1 EID & 2 XMAS (ONE WITH CLASH) he is the biggest star if we look the opening.
    Give him only 1 XMAS and Eid without clash and than you will se what SRK is..
    Aamir Khan is a geniuos because he choose always good movies and work 1-2 years for 1 movie. . so is difficoult to compete with him .
    Salman Khan depends on Eid and Masala movies without Eid he cant reach 100 crore.
