Yes, get ready to be SHOCKED...
Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar are two of the BIGGEST superstars in Bollywood, however over the years, the former has had an edge over the latter. Be it 2014 or 2015, Salman has beaten Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay easily. However, this year, Akshay has defeated both SRK and Salman. No, I am not kidding this is true! Read on to know how...
Salman had a single release -
which was one of the BIGGEST films of the year. It broke records left, right and centre as it collected Rs 300.35 crore over its lifetime run at the domestic box office. However, looks like Akshay Kumar has overtaken him! How? Akshay has had three releases this year - Sultan Airlift, Housefull 3 and till now. All the three films have done very well and if we add the lifetime collections of all three films, Akshay has made Rs 313.13 crore. This is clearly more than what Salman's Rustom Sultan made.
Many people will argue that it took Akshay three films to beat Salman's one film, but we have to see the budget of each film and even the profit percentage. In that case scenario as well, Akshay had an edge over Salman and hence, the former has beaten the latter hands down this year!
Earlier, we had even revealed how Akshay had beaten Shah Rukh Khan in 2016 as well as over the past three years. But will he be able to beat
Aamir Khan? Aamir's releases this Christmas (December 23) and many expect it to break various records. So it will be difficult for Akshay to match up to him, but we have to note that Rustom is still very steady at the box office. Dangal
