[tps_footer]Bollywood star Salman Khan has topped the overseas rank list by leaving actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan behind. Other than these four stars there aren’t many actors that have any kind of hold on overseas market. Shah Rukh Khan was leading till few years back but Aamir Khan took over with the success of his films ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘PK’. However Salman Khan has consistently maintained a position and now successfully taken over the first rank due to his films ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ that released this year.
Till now Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan had a lead but due to the failure of giving follow up films, Salman Khan easily took over the first spot. 2015 has undoubtedly been the year of Salman Khan with not one but two blockbuster films. The overseas box office records set by ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ have contributed immensely in getting Salman Khan the overseas rank points. In the worldwide collections, PK ranks number one and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ ranks number two. However due to ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ consecutively backing up Salman in the same year, the actor’s overseas credibility got boosted.
According to the current ratings the ranking is as follows: Salman Khan has 1278 points making it to rank 1, rank 2 is Aamir Khan with 1018 points and 3rd is Shah Rukh Khan with 812 points. Hrithik Roshan is the only non Khan in this list with 364 points on rank 4 which is very less compared to the Khans. However his film ‘Mohenjo Daro’ set to release next year might give him certain push in 2016. Shah Rukh Khan will also gain momentum when ‘Dilwale’ ratings get included next month, till then Salman Khan is at number one spot. However ‘Dilwale’ also might not be able to reduce the gap as there is a difference of 466 points which might not be covered by a single film alone.
