Shahrukh Khan still rules the UK box office

Even though Salman Khan has beaten all records when it comes to the Indian box-office, the overseas market still belongs to King Khan

Salman Khan has surely become the new box-office king in India with his last release Bodyguard. Its staggering collections have made it the biggest opener, beating earlier biggies like Dabangg, 3 Idiots and My Name Is Khan. In the UK market though, the story is a little different. Bodyguard saw a collection of £840,000 in its opening week there, making it the second highest opening in the country for a Bollywood film, after My Name Is Khan which had opened with £936,000. Guess Salman will have to work a lot harder if he wants to beat Shahrukh’s track record in the overseas territories. For the moment, SRK continues to rule the UK market as his  MNISK maintains its record for the biggest opening in the country.

Interestingly, the Tamil flick Mankatha got a decent opening with £110,000. Bol, on the other hand, earned about £93,000.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Thank you very much for the article! it took a big burden off my head. Shah Rukh is the KING in Bollywood, nobody can take his title off. Films doesnt always need to earn big money! some films like asoka carried a lovely story which made it my favourite film… But it happened to be a flop. that doesnt mean srk is not the king of bollywood!!! He was , he is and he will be!

    • Abhishek

      Salman is the new king of bollywood…………he has left all the actors of bollywood far behind even srk……….it does not bother that srk is ruling UK but it will bother to srk that salman is ruling the millions of heart in INDIA

  • Elsa

    the whole world will go BOOOOOOM with RaOne releasing in Oct! and then before there is time for recovery the other major BLOCKBUSTER, Don 2 will come out just to remind the world that Once a king alwayssss a KING. shahrukh is not to be compared to anyone.

    • naz

      what the hell u on about. Salman Khan and Amir Khan have given bigger hits in india compared to srk. You only need to have a look at the biggest grossing bollywood films and salman and amir dominate. Even ajay devgan has given a bigger than srk in india.

      • md waseem

        jake pahele namazen padho.nake filim ke baten karo samjhe.amir ek dog hai,aur salman ek donkey hai.

  • haroonn1986

    Yes in overseas srk is an undisputed king. Bt in india salman nd amir r giving challenge to srk. I m sure after releases of don 2 nd ra 1 srk will be again on top in india as well as number 1 belongs to srk.

  • Jargan

    Salman is present and future king of bollywood…
    We cheer for Salman….

  • Nicky

    Are you kidding me?

    What does one day of film business has to do with anything?

    We would need to see the overall collection of the film itself after coming to any conclusion. Bodyguard has broken the first day business but has slowed down a little bit after that.

    SRK and his movies leave a mark in your heart, not in your pocket plus he hasnt had too many releases in the last few years (only 4 in the last 4) and the ones he has released have done extremely well specially in the overseas market. Wait until Raone and Don2 are released!

  • Akki
