This feat is even more impressive when one considers the fact that the global box office has always been dominated by Hollywood movies, and it’s not easy for foreign-language films to achieve significant success in foreign markets. However, Shah Rukh Khan has managed to break through these barriers and establish himself as a global superstar.
Some of Shah Rukh Khan’s most successful films at the overseas box office include “My Name Is Khan,” “Dilwale,” “Chennai Express,” and “Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna.” These films have not only earned massive box office collections but have also received critical acclaim and audience appreciation.
Shah Rukh Khan’s popularity is not just limited to the Indian diaspora living abroad but also among the local audience in several countries. His films are dubbed or subtitled in local languages, making them accessible to a wider audience. In countries like Germany, France, and South Korea, Shah Rukh Khan has a massive fan following, with several fan clubs dedicated to him.
Apart from his acting skills, Shah Rukh Khan’s success can also be attributed to his charisma and his ability to connect with people from different cultures and backgrounds. He has been invited to speak at several prestigious global events, including the World Economic Forum and the TED Conference.
