Salman Khan usually gets one or two weeks of free run.... Because his movies release during the most crowded time of the year from East to West to North to south. And Aamir khan gets month of free run....
For first week salman Khan has record to over 2cr footfalls....2 movies... And no other actor including Aamir Khan hasn't achieved that... Even once Now you do the math.
O and if you bring dabangg 2 up.... Then the reason why dabangg 2 didn't become all time grosser is because it was better than 3idiots and pk and dangal and ghajini and sholay and mughle azam.
Dabangg 2 wasn't even worthy of 50cr and it did 150cr
You ask why.... Because its word of mouth was second best after 3idiots.....
Well it's second week was second biggest ever.
Either it was best movie after 3idiots or it had free 2nd week with holidays. Like all other Christmas releases.
An average Salman Khan movie on Christmas will be bigger grosser than excellent movie of Aamir Khan.
Salman Khan still has the biggest hit on Christmas... Than any of the current actors. MPK
