10. Veer Zaara (2004) - £2,012,000

Some analysis from me (a UK resident):

The remarkable thing about this list is that even after more than a decade, we are still able to see signs of when SRK was head and shoulders above everyone else as far as UK box office business was concerned. And that was (and still is) a testament to his hard work and his insane popularity which has always been there since he first won hearts with DDLJ. But this also shows that the UK has shown barely any growth of the past 16 years, and now we find ourselves in a position where the picture is slightly different as both Aamir and Salman have come to the party; indeed, they now find themselves at the top. That isn't to say that SRK has gone weak, for the truth is that he remains as popular as ever. Given the right films (MNIK, Dilwale), he's still able to enjoy huge success in this market, but perhaps his recent poor script selection has greatly weakened the chances he has of replicating his past successes in this part of the world. However, if he comes up with a film high on content, then nobody will be brave enough to bet against it becoming an ATG here (I actually think it would), thus surpassing the current record that has been held by Dhoom 3 since 2013.

rehnuma and dwarf have great chances to do that. Imtiaz's sensibiltiy might not be very popular in india but they work overseas and add SRK to the picture, ensure a great success WW

All Top 4 had very few difference in terms of lifetime, means all 4 reached at same level.


Very tough for upcoming films to even crack in top 10.
