Aamir Khan's world's biggest superstar from India
MUMBAI: With three of his films in the prestigious Top 5 list of all time grossing films worldwide, Aamir Khan has proven that he is the world's biggest superstar from India.
Aamir's last release, ‘Secret Superstar' did not just receive love and praise in India, but it has also entered the prestigious Top 5 list of all time grossing films worldwide.
Even though Aamir Khan only had a cameo in the film, yet his loyal fans thronged the theatres to watch the film because of their faith in the content that he brings to the table.
With the entry of ‘Secret Superstar' in the top 5 list, 3 of Aamir Khan's films are now part of it.
It is not an easy feat for any actor to have 3 of his films in the list of Top 5 Indian grossing films worldwide but Aamir Khan has managed to do that.
With ‘Dangal' collecting 1908 crores, ‘Secret Superstar' collecting 874 crores and ‘PK' gathering 831 crores, Aamir Khan is the only Indian actor ever to set such a massive record with his films.
With Aamir Khan, it's not just about delivering superior content but it is also about doing that consistently.
While all these above mentioned films did phenomenally well in India, they also received humongous response overseas, especially in China.
In fact, according to Chinese IMDb, Aamir Khan is the top ranked foreign actor there and ‘Dangal' is the top ranking film.
The other two films apart from Aamir's in the list of Top 5 Indian films worldwide are, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan' (5th rank) and ‘Baahubali' 2 (2nd rank).
According to producer Komal Nahta on ‘Secret Superstar's' success, “The fact that three of the top five Bollywood films worldwide are Aamir Khan's films proves that Aamir's stardom is not restricted by geographical boundaries but transcends them. He is the biggest Bollywood star of India but the last couple of years have also established beyond doubt that he is the biggest in China too.”
Taran Adarsh shares, “Aamir's choice of films, the way he markets them always is very different from the norm and they stand out. There is a strong element of entertainment, at the same time they are high on content. He not only entertains but also enlightens the audience. Today the world market is ready to listen to and watch good content films. “Aamir has opened doors for release in China for the entire Indian film industry. Aamir's, especially last 2 films which are ‘Dangal' and ‘Secret Superstar' have hit the ball out of the park, in terms of collections. Aamir not only makes his films with a lot of passion, but also releases them with the same amount of passion which gets reflected at the box office.”
