The Box Office Ascendancy of Shah Rukh Khan: Only 8 Movies Crossed ₹100 Crores in 31 Years, Yet He Remains the True King

Shah Rukh Khan’s latest film, “Jawan,” is consistently achieving new milestones at the Bollywood Box Office. It’s not only setting records but also reshaping the trajectory of his career, which spans an impressive 31 years. SRK achieved his first ₹100 crore blockbuster in 2011 with “Don 2,” raking in a total of ₹106.71 crores in India during its lifetime run. He repeated this feat in the same year with “Ra.One,” which earned ₹114.29 crores at the Box Office. By that time, his contemporaries – Salman Khan had three ₹100 crore grossers, Aamir Khan had two, and Ajay Devgn had two under their belts.

While SRK entered this league relatively late, with only eight ₹100 crore grossers, he stands tall among the most commercially successful Indian actors. However, before the release of “Pathaan” in the current year, Shah Rukh faced setbacks with two big films: “Jab Harry Met Sejal” and “Zero.” In fact, his charm at the Box Office seemed to wane after the semi-hit “Dilwale” in 2015. In 2017, “Raees” clashed with “Kaabil” and managed to earn around ₹128 crores, another semi-hit. Nonetheless, none of these films could diminish the superstar status that Shah Rukh Khan enjoys, both in the commercial realm and in the hearts of his fans.

Here’s a list of the top 8 highest-grossing films of Shah Rukh Khan in India, along with their Box Office collections (nett):

“Jawan” (2023): ₹477 crores (still running)
“Pathaan” (2023): ₹543.05 crores
“Raees” (2017): ₹137.51 crores
“Dilwale” (2015): ₹148.72 crores
“Chennai Express” (2013): ₹227.13 crores
“Jab Tak Hai Jaan” (2012): ₹120.85 crores
“Ra.One” (2011): ₹114.29 crores
“Don 2” (2011): ₹106.71 crores
It took SRK five years and two action-packed films to reestablish his dominance at the Box Office. This journey involved a departure from his usual lover-boy image on screen and a full embrace of the mass action star persona. “Pathaan” and “Jawan” have achieved something unprecedented for any actor in the industry, and these accomplishments were not mere coincidences. At the age of 57, Shah Rukh Khan dedicated himself to making a comeback like no other actor of his generation, or even beyond, has managed in the over 100-year history of Indian cinema. Such a return required not only exceptional acting but also a comprehensive approach to the craft. With “Pathaan” and “Jawan,” SRK not only reinvented himself but also made strategic decisions regarding promotions, building anticipation, selecting release dates, and engaging fans with subplots and narrative layers.

During an event last year, Shah Rukh Khan confidently stated that he knew “Pathaan” and “Jawan” would make history and receive the kind of love he had never experienced at the Box Office. Today, as “Pathaan” stands as the biggest Bollywood film of all time, soon to be overtaken by “Jawan,” SRK emerges as the only superstar who can foresee such immense success for himself. While he may not have as many box office hits as his contemporaries, he only needed two films to rewrite the history of Hindi cinema, turning it into the grand spectacle it is today.

Meanwhile, “Jawan” has collected ₹477.28 crores in India and ₹573 crores worldwide after an 11-day run. The film is on track to become SRK’s second ₹1000
