For the past two and a half decades or so, the three Kings of their respective kingdoms in Bollywood, namely Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan continue to dominate the box office in one way or the other. One would also point out that these guys have unparalleled amounts of stardom and fans, be it in their homelands or abroad. So, maybe this comes as no surprise that these guys are indeed part of some of the most expensive films in Bollywood.
If you’d consider the amount that producers are investing behind these stars as an accurate measure of what they are worth to Bollywood as of now, here are some really jaw-dropping figures for you!
Aamir Khan – 210 crores
Aamir Khan has seemingly invested all his time and energy in just one film, which just happens to be the most expensive one to come out of the Yash Raj Films mill till date! The action-adventure film goes by the name of Thugs Of Hindostan. The film also has Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. The film is being helmed by Vijay Krishna Acharya of Dhoom 3 fame.
Salman Khan – 190 Crores
Yes! Believe it or not, that’s the figure! Apparently, Race 3 has been made on a super-lavish budget of 150 crores, which probably makes Khan’s second most expensive film since it reportedly misses that of Tiger Zinda Hai by a small margin. Post Race 3, he will once again step into Chulbul Pandey’s shoes for Dabangg 3, a film that will be made with an amount of 40 crores. However, nothing is clearly known about Bharat.
Shah Rukh Khan – 150 crores
Yes! We know that Shah Rukh Khan is just doing one film as of now, which is Aanand L Rai’s Zero, a film that also has Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. And, believe it or not, that the budget! About 150 crores! With this, Zero is probably King Khan’s most expensive film till date!
So, the total of all three adds up to a whopping 550 crores!
So, who do you think will please the box office most at the end of it all? Let us know!
