Highest overseas grossers of 2017- Raees, Tiger Zinda Hai and Jab Harry Met Sejal

Highest overseas grossers of 2017: Raees, Tiger Zinda Hai and Jab Harry Met Sejal are the highest grossing Bollywood movies of 2017 in the overseas market.

The performance of the Bollywood movies at the overseas box office has become an important trade factor in the last 4 to 5 years. The overseas collection plays an important role in deciding the box office fate as well as the profit margins for the filmmakers. Last year, we saw Aamir Khan’s Dangal made over 200 crores at the overseas box office. Similarly, Salman Khan’s Sultan and Ranbir Kapoor’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil made it big at the global stage.

The worldwide collection of the movies hugely depends on how they perform outside India. Aamir Khan and Salman Khan have emerged as big money miners as their movies have been performing exceptionally well outside India.
