With a collection of $228,012,603 Aamir Khan’s Dangal is the top overseas grosser of Bollywood. Dangal earned huge in Chinese market to post such impeccable numbers.

Talking about the actors, Aamir Khan acquires the top 3 position in the list with his movies, Dangal, PK and Dhoom 3. Shah Rukh Khan has four movies in top 10 while Salman Khan has only two.

Shah Rukh Khan has maximum hits in overseas. Out of top 50 overseas grossers, 16 belongs to SRK. He is a legend of sort as far as overseas box office is concerned.

Talking about the actresses, the list is dominated by Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, Kajol and Kareena with two movies each in top 10 followed by Katrina who has one movie.

According to me, Aamir Khan is the true overseas Box Office king as top 3 positions in the list are occupied by his movies. Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan follows him. Aamir Khan has gained huge popularity in overseas market with films like PK, 3 Idiots and Dangal. As above table suggests, his latest release Dangal was a mega blockbuster in the overseas markets.

  1. It is SRK, because he is known not only in migrant circles and communitie, but also international (Germans, Austrian, Swizzerland-People, French, Netherland-People, Polish and many others know him and his films. 3 Idiots and PK are indian or subcontinental problems, in Europe these problems (religions for instance) are not interesting. Nobody knows the films of Amir and the name of Amir Khan outside of the subcontinental and muslim communities. Lagaan was international, but is forgotten today. But Shah Rukh Khan is known very well outside and international, he made a film in Berlin, showed his films at the Berlinale, has doctor h.c.-degrade of two european universities, is member of Yale and so on. A lot of Germans like me saw Dilwale and all the other films of SRK not only one time.
