Shahrukh Khan`s Pathan has beaten Aamir Khan`s Dangal`s seven-year record. This makes us think about how Aamir Khan has been on top and unbeaten at the box office for the previous 14 years with films like ‘Ghajini’, ‘3 Idiots’, ‘PK,’ and ‘Dangal’. Now as ‘Pathaan’ does the unthinkable and sets a new record, #14YearsOnTheTop trends on social media today commemorate Aamir Khan long run of being the box office king.
History has it that, Aamir Khan has frequently set and broken his own records, and this time, someone else broke it. And, that someone else is none other than Shah Rukh Khan. Not many had even an iota of an idea that, when Ghajini was released in 2008, Aamir Khan would outperform his figures and break records with the ‘3 Idiots’. The audience had begun to expect Aamir Khan to break his records by this point in the early 2010s.
