Highest Overseas Grossers of 2017: Raees tops, Tubelight at 5th

The latest release of Salman Khan starrer, Tubelight has disappointed big time in overseas. The film has grossed around $3.68 million so far with some markets yet to be reported.

Even the festival of Eid could not help it in places like UK. It is a big failure as the lifetime gross may not even cross $7 million. As of now, the film is 5th highest grosser of 2017.

Shahrukh Khan's Raees still tops the list with no one even coming close to it. SRK will be hoping to break this record with Jab Harry Met Sejal. The actor is coming to the romantic genre after a long time and if it is a proper love story then only sky will be the limit as far as the overseas business is concerned.

Indian films have not performed up to the expectations in overseas this year and things are not looking better ahead too. Apart from JHMS, only Jagga Jasoos is looking exciting from the recent upcoming films.

  1. Oo hello Raees 14.2M $ hai ..update karo Bollywood arena ..
    Haha Sallu local star overseas me kuch nahi aukaat hai bas India tak hai .. overseasme 35cr kama paega tubelight haha disaster hi Gaya overseas me ..fan kam se kam superhit tha overseas me or 10M $+ tha

    Raees 14.2M $ hai update it

    1. In Germany, Poland and Ireland theatres are promoting the movie as a Shah Rukh Khan so that they can get some people in, but people are walking away from the movie after SRK Cameo!

    2. BEta bollywood life ki web per dekho tubelight flop n h peof ke sath shame on you raees semi hit dilwale flop

  2. Ohh.
    dilwale . Fan. Raess .
    Even dear zindagi did excellent collection in domestic and overseas.
    That's means all srk films are overall hits.
    But salman tubelight is totally flop.

  3. Well everyone knows that SRK is untouchable in Overseas. With a local gangster genre he's at the top, imagine with the Sexy European Tour guide Romance movie, JHMS will easily leave even Raees behind

      1. 23 overseas blockbusters, 16 overseas HGOTY, 6 overseas ATG, highest overseas opening records, over 30 overseas hits, what more do you want? He is not a new born superstar. He has been consistent since 1993

        1. Tere srk ki last 23 blockbuster k total collections sirf dangal k overseas collections se b kam he...


        2. @NN you got him right their sir! Haha epic answer, Shah Rukh Khan is an old horse in the race, he ruled overseas before Aamir and Salman knew the market!

    1. TEPK won't do anything to that List as well, it will collect 20cr overseas, I personally want Akshay Kumar to atleast cross Tubelight overseas collections!

  4. Not sure about domestic but JHMS will definitely beat Raees overseas collections.

  5. Tubelight is not going to cross FAN overseas collection , Raees is out of reach.
    This is the aukaat of global megastar in overseas.

  6. may i ask all these chillar SRK and ranbhir etc fans to stay away from salmans articles?.. these jerks aren't even qualified to talk about anybody leave alone salman who is india's biggest star EVERRR.. their stars have struggled and crawled their way towards 80-100cr and have the audacity to speak against salman films :D :D :D OMGGG :D

    1. LOL, Gangu teli so called superstar sallu's fan talking about stardom when he has the record of delivering more disasters than Blockbusters and more flops than success. It's a shame for India if anyone calls him India's biggest star, forget "ever". Get some treatment..!! Alia>>>>sallu.

    2. LOL, gangu teli so-called superstar sally fan talking about stardom...!!!--who has delivered more Disasters than blockbusters and more flops than success. If anyone calls him India's biggest star then it is a shame for India....forget "ever". In overseas Alias>>>sallu

    3. so very true.. these changu mangus come and blabber some rubbish which is so hilarious... imagine.. ranbhir and SRK.. lol..
      dont even feel like arguing with these peopl.. lol..
      ok to argue with aamir fans as salman and aamir are at the same level...

      in terms of stardom..

      so, pls chech your stars status and then bark.. lol

  7. I don't get it y can a film which has salman Khan a cameo by SRK flops at the box office

  8. @NN I was not comparing overall career of akki vs srk
    I never said akki is bigger than srk in stardom but on box office, In last 2 years, akki is doing better than srk. In terms of stardom srk is bigger than all his competitors. I was just comparing present time. 3 100 movies in one year always better than 1 200 crore movie. It is what I think. I am also srk fan. It is not his worst pace. He just need one good script and then he is back in game.

    1. @Karan Singh 100% agree with you, Shah Rukh Khan needs to atleast 2 movies every year and both movies need to cross 200cr or give atleast one 250-300cr movie every year, the truth is the truth and you can't deny that Akshay Kumar is giving more hits than any other actor in Bollywood every year!

      In that perspective Akshay Kumar is the king of box office! But let's just keep stardom or if this one!

  9. Bahut bura hua reeeee.....tubelight k sath.....overseas mai.....so sad!!!!!.........hahahahahahahah

  10. @ jeet salman is not india's biggest star, i am sorry to say that. that position goes to aamir. trade is saying if salman comes in macho image he is the biggest , but it itself shows his limitations as a star. aamir does not have that limitations. problem is not that tubelight will not challenge dangal or pk in lifetime, it's rejected so that's not the problem, the problem is he failed to make the film open even to a 25 crore net. if the film would have opened 25 crore net plus the film still would have somehow managed not to become a flop .

    support you star but you have to know the reality. dangal's 3 day weekend which has only 1 holiday xmas and that too which was wasted on sunday has an advance of 17.5 crore net while prdp with 4 day extended diwali holiday weekend has advance of 16 crore net. sultan is the biggest with 21 crore but it was also a 5 day extended holiday weekend release and more appeal in the single screens. in the multiplexes dangal advance was better than sultan despite of the buzz being much lower. dhoom 3 non holiday weekend has advance of 14.75 crore net while kick was 13.25 crore net and eid holiday weekend release bajrangi bhaijaan has 13 crore net. see all these and you yourself decide who is the biggest.

    the summary is we always talk about salman's huge stardom in single screens but they did not come in case of tubelight when genre was not appealing just like they did not come in case of dangal. salman films opens big in single screens when he caters the right film to them , when aamir did that with ghajini and dhoom 3 they also came so salman has no advantage over aamir in single screens.

    but aamir has clear advantage over salman in multiplexes. when he made pk and dangal for them they came in huge numbers and the films opened to excellent numbers. but salman failed to do that with tubelight. tubelight should have opened big in the multiplexes like dangal or pk but it opened average or just good even there. it's a fact that in big cities aamir has a much bigger and loyal following than salman. salman has big following in masses but they are genre dependent but aamir is not, he can make any film open big. even multiplex audiences also prefer salman to see in macho image but they will accept aamir in any image.

    so we salman followers should stop saying from now that aamir does content films. aamir does different type of content films because his following supports him always in terms of initial which is not the case with salman. salman from here should not do challenging roles and stick to his macho image to get boxoffice numbers and that is itself a defeat infront of aamir.

    1. completely wrong..
      tubelight would hav managed 27+ if muslim audiences had to come on opening day..
      because of such bad mouthing, many refused to watch in theater on EID.. if the content was entertaining, obviously all would have gone and made it a big hit.. hit status is still not out of question as the film requires 135+ to get that status. because of Salman care a dam attitude most of the media prefer to go against his films.. seen recently. in mere less than one week of release peopl have shamelessly declared it a flop whereas i feel for such content catering to multiplexes, the collections are too good and have touched 100cr in 6 days...
      Salmans all film work in multiplexes and single.. whereas aamirs only two films opened big.. ghajini and pk..
      content of dangal and pk wer way better thn tubelight and hence the results.. so in that way both are equal..
      why salman is ahead???
      well, u don't see often fans bursting crackers, dancing and singing for an aamir's films.. do u?.. it happens only to salman and there is whr he races past all...
      hope i dont have to explain this more..

  11. And meanwhile fans of Amir Khan scorling through the comment section! Amir Khan is the real unsung Hero of our country, make him proud ?

    1. @Karan Singh Why would someone dislike this comment you just said thank bro and someone disliked your comment lmaoo hahaha! Anyways no need to say thank you the truth is the truth!

  12. @ jeet pre - eid does not affect collections to that extent you are saying . the collections would have been max 24 crore on working day. ( according to boi it's 25 crore)
    on that same kind of release date kick and bajrangi bhaijaan opened big. kick did 25 crore net on opening day 3 years ago, it was also a ramzan release.
    yes dangal and pk were way better films but i am not talking about lifetime, i am talking about opening. that's why i have given you samples of advances . according to boi.com dangal had advances of 17.5 crore net before the film released and tubelight had advances of only 12.5 crore net , that's a huge difference and advance booking is not affected by word of mouth at all, even opening day can be.

    aamir khan's two films opened big in single screens because those two were only catered for single screens . a film like pk or dangal can not open big there just like tubelight did not but dangal and pk got huge support from multiplexes in advance and opening which tubelight did not.

    the point is single screens are not loyal to any actor they are loyal to a genre, but multiplexes will accept an actor in any role if he is good in that . salman plays characters like devil and tiger very well and that's why both multiplex and single screen accept him in that but just think salman in pk, could have he done justice to the role.
