Although SRK is widely acknowledged as the King Khan in Bollywood, the box office records suggest that the ‘Undisputed King’ of Indian Cinema is a different Khan.
For a long time, SRK was the real king of Bollywood. That equation changed after Salman did ‘Wanted’.
And while you talk about these two Khans for most part of the year, Aamir Khan’s movie releases in December and you wonder who’s the real Khan of Bollywood.
Salman Khan: The Most ‘Wanted’ Khan
With the stupendous success of Sultan, Salman Khan has once again proven that he’s a bigger star than Shahrukh when it comes to box office numbers. Salman Khan has the highest number of films in the coveted 100 Crore club. Sultan was the second film for Salman Khan in the 300 crore club. Earlier, Salman’s Bajarangi Bhaijan fell just short of PK’s all time record.
Watch: Bajrangi Bhaijaan Trailer (Salman seems to have gotten better at selecting the right scripts, and also is working with the right set of people)
Aamir Khan: The ‘Real’ Khan of Bollywood?
In Bollywood, you cannot be sure which film is the best film of the year, until December. Because that is when Aamir releases most of his film.
And while there are other actors who’re happy doing several films in a year, Aamir sticks to one, and he ensures it counts!
This time also, Aamir has killed it with Dangal.
Although the demonetization drive will have some impact on its box office collection, there’s no doubt that the film is a masterpiece, and perhaps the best sports based movie.
Dangal is clearly Aamir Khan’s film, and the movie probably may not have seen the light of the day (as was in the case of Lagaan) had Aamir not given his go-ahead to the movie. Unlike the other Khans, Aamir is happy to stand aside and let the film (and his co-stars) do the talking.
Aamir Khan: Quality over Quantity
Although Aamir Khan does very few films, he seems to be beating them all (including Shah Rukh and Salman Khan) every few years.
First it started with the movie ‘Ghajini’ in the year 2008, when the Aamir Khan starrer film became the first Bollywood film to cross Rs 100 crore (Rs 190-crore lifetime collection). Post that, there were a few other movies that managed to cross the 100 crore mark in domestic collections.
He repeated the feat again in 2009, but this time his movie ‘3 Idiots’ became the first Bollywood movie to cross Rs 200 crore (lifetime collection Rs 202 crore) in the domestic market. Again, there were a few movies that managed to cross 200 crores after ‘3 Idiots’ achieved that milestone.
But guess what, the perfectionist managed to repeat the feat of breaking records once more with his latest movie PK. Aamir Khan’s PK is now the first Bollywood movie to collect more than Rs 300 crore in domestic collections.
And its the only Bollywood movie to have achieved that feat, as of now!
Now, who’s the Real King Khan of Bollywood? What do you guys have to say?
But i still say srk is a global star and he is king of Bollywood
I think srk is best among bollywood leading role actor. Becuase every style of roles in a cinema industry has beatifully doned. When we are looking to a good family movie there is kabie khushi kabie gum . When we are looking to a negative role ,i think one of the best negative as leading role is don 1 and 2 but there is another movie by emraan hashimi in once up on a time in mumbai. There is no doubt that the srk is the king of romance becuase of his undisputed film gainings in ddlj kuch kuch hota hai,kal ho na ho, veer zaara etc. The film which is showing the redemption as a sportsman, i think the best debut is bhag milkha bhag, mary kom, chak de india, sulthan etc. And moral value movies like swades, darr,rangde basanti, lagaan,taare zamin par etc. The film which is showing critical hit my name is khan and pk .
In the every style of cinema is covered by srk. He is only earned a doctrate for acting from a european univercity . The actor gained best actor award for 8 times in filmfare nights.
The most box office hit is salman but the most gained movie in india is amir khans pk. Chennai express in fourth.
Srk is proved in every corner of film can travell. Althogh salman amir have lot of qualities srk is the best. It is only my opinion . Any one have any more arguments pls give me the reply polietly. Thanks for reading………………

my choice amir khan pk
aamir khan all time king box office
No doubt every one does well but only one man is best among everyone in Bollywood And That Is
And who is srk what he do I don’t know him
Salman Khan better than that srk
But Amir is always Best And he Beats Every one
shadab fayaz says
u dont know what srk do then u dont have any right to say amir is best
@shadab fayaz he has every right to say that aamir is the best…..and if u don’t agree…..furnish valid proofs in ur defence
who ka salman khan? I don’t know him… I think a Dog will be better than Salman
Robert…Dogs are too clever, can act really well and have featured in so many movies 🙂
Md Aslam says
you are a ***. The King of Bollywood Salman
even a beggar is better than ur srk
srk is king of box office
A Santosh says
First ask SRK to break DHOOM3’s record, then call him king or whatever it may be. PK and DANGAL is too far to break the record, he doesn’t have that much strength!
shadab fayaz says
breaking of box office record doesnt means that amir or salman is the king of bollywood
@shadab fayaz – then what exactly is the criteria to decide who the king is ? srk fans are just fanatics …. they will support their fav. star even when they are provided with undeniable proofs stating ( shouting rather ) otherwise..
in acting dumb srk is below amir
in box office collection he is below both aamir and salman
in looks … well he is below everyone in this catagory…just because girls love him dosen’t means he is good looking….( nose and lips spread in 4 sq km )….keep ur srk to urself…..if looks were the criterion then no one will come even remotely close to HRITHIK..
Ijaj Ahmed says
As, a actor srk’s acting is most..he have a good personality to act
learn english first….
Salman khan is, and always be the king and tiger of Bollywood
It is hard to determine which actor is truly the king of Bollywood given their respective filmographies that made them the stars that they are today. You cannot forget that their careers have spanned over 3 decades so they have all had their ups and downs. They have given us such good memories that it really is hard to pick one over the other. I think in the 90s Salman was the bigger star and towards the end of the 90s Shahrukh took over and maintained that lead through the 2000s. However Aamir was never far behind and took over post 2010. In terms of purely acting skills Shahrukh and Aamir are easily better and are more convincingly able to perform different roles however Salman is able to match them purely because of his charisma. But then again Shahrukh oozes charisma too. Nonetheless they all have the likability and x factor. The reason I think Aamir is winning in this decade is because although Salman has had more hits the content of his movies has been purely trash and the same for Shahrukh also. Dilwale, Happy New Year and Chennai Express were horrible as were Wanted, Dabang, Dabang 2, Ready, Bodyguard, Jai Ho, Kick and PRDP. Sultan was average. However Fan, Raees and especially Bajrangi Bhaijaan were good. IMO Bajrangi Bhaijaan is one of the best Bollywood movies made. However Aamir Khan made 3 Idiots, PK and Dangal. So Aamir surely delivers the best quality movies however Salman and Shahrukh are also able to but for whatever reason choose not to. They are in a position now when they can pick and choose any script, I wish they would choose more like Aamir and not ask their fans to waste their money on shit like Dilwale or Dabang.

Mujhse Shaadi Karoge
Main Khiladi Tu Anari
Singh is King
Gabbar is Back
So Shahrukh, Salman, Akshay, Ajay, Ranbir, Ranveer and the rest should follow in Aamir footsteps and make quality movies. Don’t make anymore bakwaas movies. So in conclusion no Khan is the best. So the best in Bollywood is Uday Chopra.
