Best Khan?

It makes sense to divide Bollywood into two phases: before and after the Khans. Bollywood has been ruled by these three actors for over two decades now. The majority of the movies churned out by the industry have more or less solely relied on these actors. Each one of them is fully capable of carrying a film on their own shoulders.

Despite the arrival of fresh faces, they still remain the ‘superstars’ of Bollywood while we bask in the power, passion and energy they radiate on screen. Defying age and time, this Khan trio has created a holy space in the hearts of masses as well as the box office. But the million dollar question is who is the best Khan among these Three? Well, We can only present records and stats, take a look and do tell us if we missed something. In Our Opinion, While Salman Khan is Most Dominating Superstar, Shahrukh is Most Consistent Superstar, and Aamir Khan is Perfectionist.

Note: We have included all major records and facts which we got from reliable sources. The sources are not linked there but can be presented if it is needed. Box office verdicts and figures are fetched from new Boxofficeindia (BOI). Box Office verdicts before 1996 which has not been updated by BOI yet, has been taken from old BOI. Though overseas records value only 20% of domestic records but still we have added points for Major record of overseas to avoid arguments. This list does not include milestones and benchmarks. To have a look at them, please click here.

Awards, honours etc are not included because these things are judged and given by a certain group/organization. The list also does not include highest paid actor/host, tax payer, richest actor etc. For the star power ranking only BOI, Ormax Media and Times CelebEx ranking have been prefered. We have tried our best to include all possible categories (and keeping the list to around 100). Kindly inform us if there is any factual error in the list.
