Every single time a Bollywood Khan's film hits the theatres, fans start calculating how much money the film has earned and how quickly it entered the hundred-crore clubs. Salman Khan has to his credit several INR100 crore, INR200 crore and INR300 crore films, a feat which is matched by both Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan, reported India Today. 

Salman Khan fans are already spending sleepless nights thinking how much his next film, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, will be able to make at the box office. As for Shah Rukh Khan fans, it's Dilwale, Raees and Fan that is keeping them awake.

However, one Khan, who has managed to outdo all the other three Khans put together, is Irrfan Khan. The actor's latest release, Jurassic World, has earned more than $500 million at the global box office in just its opening weekend. In Pakistani currency, that's almost Rs6,000 crore, (INR3,000).

While the tussle for the most commercially successful Khan keeps the fans of all three worked up, Irrfan seems to have quietly surpassed them all. In Jurassic World, the actor plays the role of Simon Masrani, the owner of the park.

Naim | 6 years ago | Reply Irfan khan is the greatest indian actor in international stage than salman, shahrukh or aamir khan. His amaging hit list give him this supremacy. We should proud of him. his film - 1. Slumdog millionire 2. Life of pi 3. Amaging spider man 4. Jurrassic world
Steve | 6 years ago | Reply Irfan Khan was again really good and I enjoyed his performance, as far as international stardom and successes goes, he is much more known than ANY other India actor. If I asked any of my colleagues non asian in the UK or USA, do you know Salmon or Shahrukh, the would say who ? If I said Irrfan Khan they would say, yes, the police officer in Slumdog. The India media make some persona that Salmon or Shahrukh are International Stars, it's complete rubbish, no one outside of India know them. I'm white British and worked in India so I know these stars. Irrfan Khan is much more well known internationally by non Asians than the other 2 Khans, they are insignificant as far as Western movies are concerned. So if your Indian you should support Irfan Khan and his REAL international stardom.
