The Khan’s war has begun. The most charismatic and admired actor Aamir khan topping the national and international charts for his two much loved movies.
Aamir Khan PK, 3 Idiots and Dhoom3 climbed to the top two slots, bringing SRK’s Happy New Year and Chennai Express to number four and five, reported Daily News and Analysis (DNA).
Aamir Khan has now replaced Shahrukh Khan in the top five international Bollywood grossers list as his three hits PK, Dhoom 3 and 3 Idiots climbed. Though Shahrukh Khan’s films dominate local as well as international markets and earned a lot grosser but as compare to Amir Khan, it’s comparatively less.
Not only that, Amir’s PK became the talk of the town , many criticism been raised to the films a, the critics left no room to in discouraging the content and script but the general public the real deciders took the film to touch seventh sky.
Film trade analysts and critics also weighed in their comments on Aamir and Shahrukh’s films:
"There’s a tough fight between Shah Rukh and Aamir in the overseas territory. Besides star-power, it’s also about the film and its content. As of now, yes Aamir is having a dream run. But SRK is also a huge pull. PK is highly accepted overseas and became the first Hindi film to collect about INR340 crore at the domestic box-office. His previous films Dhoom 3 (an established brand) and Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots are also known for their sky-rocketing business. Though Happy New Year did very well, it didn’t match the kind of numbers one has of an SRK film. It did lesser than Chennai Express. Aamir’s Dhoom 3 and now PK have done put him in a great position."
Komal Nahta: The figures speak for themselves; "Out of the top five grossers overseas, three are Aamir’s movies. The figures speak for themselves and Aamir’s ranking in the overseas market. I think like the audience in India, even the audience abroad has started looking at Aamir’s movies to be like an ISI mark. They associate his movies with quality and novelty. They know that if it’s an Aamir Khanmovie it must be something good. That’s why his movies are doing so well."
