Audiences lapped up Aamir’s 2014 satirical science fiction comedy PK, number two on the all-time Bollywood grossing list, for its questioning of religious superstitions.
Three Indian actors sharing a surname have ruled Bollywood box offices across three decades, but the success of wrestling blockbuster Dangal means it’s Aamir who’s currently king of the Khans.
Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Salman Khan have been the undoubted superstars of the Hindi film industry since the mid-1990s, taking it in turns to reign supreme.

“The Khans used to be on a par but Aamir has moved ahead and Shah Rukh is kind of lagging behind recently,” film trade analyst Ramesh Bala said of the trio who all turn 52 this year and who are not related.
