Rs. 2,200 cr in 14 years: Aamir Khan the badshan of Bollywood?


It also made Aamir the first actor to enter the Rs. 100-cr, Rs. 200-cr and Rs. 300-cr club. Ghajini (net earning Rs. 180 cr) was the film which started the trend of the boastful Rs. 100 cr club and 3 Idiots (net earning Rs. 405 cr) raised the stakes with Rs. 202 cr India business.
With PK’s thumping victory at the box office, Aamir has proved that he is the real boss of Bollywood. It has also taken him one step ahead of the other Khans in the numbers game. But, is he really as successful as he has been projected by these trade figures?
To find out, let us take a look at his films released since 2001.

Lagaan (2001)
Lagaan was a major critical and commercial success, and received a nomination for Best Foreign Language Film at the 74th Academy Awards. In fact, this is the only Hindi film which came really close to winning an Oscar. Lagaan earned close to Rs. 54 crore.

Ghajini (2008)
It was a game changing venture as it started the concept of the Rs. 100-cr club. Aamir’s chiseled physique worked in favour of the film and it became the first one to earn more than Rs. 100 crore in the domestic market. Later, it went on to gross Rs. 180 crore, including all markets.

3 Idiots (2009)
Director Rajkumar Hirani’s film relied heavily on Aamir and a huge promotional drive. He wasn’t disappointed as 3 Idiots became the first film to fetch Rs. 202 crore in the Indian market itself and had a net business worth Rs. 405 cr.

Dhobi Ghat (2011)
Directed by Aamir’s wife Kiran Rao, this is Aamir’s most ‘different’ film till date. It had a specific target audience and thus the makers were satisfied with Rs. 15 crore market figures. After all, it was made at a budget of less than Rs. 10 crore. Of course, Aamir didn’t charge for it as Dhobi Ghat was his home production.

Talaash (2012)
It is the only Aamir film which did not do as well as anticipated in recent times. Mixed reviews hampered its chances and restricted its business to Rs. 93 crore in India and Rs. 145 crore worldwide.

Dhoom 3 (2013)
Dhoom 3 was released on more than 3,600 screens worldwide in December 2013. This film broke all existing records and was declared ‘the biggest hit of 2013′. Trade figures suggest that Dhoom 3 has done a business of Rs. 545 crore till date. The dubbed versions are still releasing in some countries and thus the tally is likely to go up.

PK (2014)
Nothing is left to talks about Aamir’s brand value after PK. It is thriving for the numbers which will be difficult to beat even for Aamir himself in the future. At the time of writing this report, it has already become the first Hindi film to cross the Rs. 300-cr mark in the domestic market. Overall, it has gathered more than Rs. 575 crore and enthusiasm around it does not seem to die down.

This is only about Aamir Khan the actor. Some of his productions such as Peepli Live and Delhi Belly have also hit the jackpot, and adding them would only mean extending his authority over the box office to unprecedented heights.
