While the first slot is firmly held by Aamir Khan's PK that released in 2013 grossing approx. Rs. 769 cr, the second spot is claimed by the Kabir Khan directed Bajrangi Bhaijaan starring Salman Khan that grossed approx. Rs. 629 cr globally. Currently, in the third place is Dhoom 3 that had managed overall worldwide gross collections of Rs. 584.58 cr (Domestic Rs. 398.52 cr. + International Rs. 186.06 cr.). However, Sultan that has till date grossed Rs. 573 Cr (Domestic Rs. 416 cr. + International Rs. 157 cr.) seems to be closing the gap as days pass.
Considering the fact that Sultan is still running in cinemas albeit in considerably fewer shows, it is still raking in the moolah. If things continue as expected, Sultan might in all likelihood become the third highest worldwide grosser.
