Highest-Grossing Shah Rukh Khan Movies of 2023
Now comes the list that everyone has been waiting for a long time. The best Bollywood movies by Shah Rukh Khan in 2023. Personally, I would say he took 2023 because of the back-to-back release of epic movies, which grossed the highest in the Indian Box Office. So, without waiting any further, let’s jump into the pool set by Shah Rukh Khan.
The highest-grossing movie of 2023 is Jawan, starring Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role. It is an all-time blockbuster to cross over millions worldwide.
Shah Rukh Khan plays the role of Vikram, who sets a mission and goes on a journey to correct what is wrong in society. He wants to destroy Kalee and give the government new rules and demands, setting the stage on fire. The movie will take you on a rollercoaster ride, conveying a strong societal message about the corrupt political system.

- Worldwide gross: 1152cr
- Domestic net collection: 640.8cr
- Verdict: All Time Blockbuster
The next highest-grossing movie is Pathaan. It was released on 25 January 2023. If you love Shah Rukh Khan’s Don and Don 2, I am sure you’ll love watching Pathaan also. Really, it gave me the same vibe as Shah Rukh Khan, playing Indian RAW agent “Pathaan” gains awareness of a major impending attack against India and goes on a mission to do everything in his power to stop it.
- Budget: 250cr
- Worldwide gross: 1050.8cr
- Domestic net collection: 543.4cr

In this movie, Shah Rukh Khan comes down boarding a train to a small town in Punjab, where he meets four people who want to go to England.
- Budget: 130cr
- Worldwide gross: 400.1cr

So, let us now discuss each one of them in detail!
Animal Movie is one of the highest-grossing Bollywood movies of 2023, featuring popular actors and an epic storyline. The movie tells us a story of a father-son relationship, played by Anil Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, respectively.

When a retired Jailer goes on a manhunt to find his son’s killer, he uncovers many mysteries and gives us a blockbuster story based on his father’s love. I think Jailer is a good movie that you can watch if you are a fan of thrillers, murder stories, and novels.

Best South Indian Movies in 2023
1. Salaar: Part 1 Ceasefire
The highest-grossing box office collector in the Bollywood movies in Salaar: Part 1 Ceasefire.

Bollywood Movies To Watch Today
When I say Bollywood Movies, what comes to your mind? Cultural dances, lively music, vibrant colors, dances, romance, history, action, I know a little bit of messed-up physics and chemistry!!
So, you or I cannot deny the fact that Bollywood movies are the ultimate entertainment goals. Do you remember that one dialogue from Sholay when Gabbar said, “Kitney Aadmi Thay”? I know you do, So do I. This is the aura of Bollywood. It has been 48 years since the release of the movie, and to date, we remember its dialogues.
Well, I am not going to suggest you movies from the 1900s; rather, I am bringing you the chartbusters of Bollywood movies. So, let us get started, shall we?
List of the top Bollywood movies
- Race 3
- Badhai Ho
Here is a detailed discussion of these movies:-
The number one box office collector in the Bollywood movies is 2.0. The movie was released on 28 November 2018 and has been a huge chartbuster because of the “important message” it conveyed and the overall theme of the movie.
To date, 2.0 is one of the most expensive Bollywood movies, with an estimated budget of Rs. 570 Crore. Originally, the movie was shot in Tamil and then got translated and dubbed to 13 other languages in India.
The movie is one of the biggest box office collectors starring Bollywood actors such as:-

- Akshay Kumar as Dr. Pakshikaran
- Amy Jackson as Neela
- Kaizaad Kotwal as Manoj Lulla
- Sudhanshu Pandey as Dhinendra Bora
- Adil Hussain as Vijay Kumar
The next biggest box office collector in the Bollywood Movies list of 2018 is Sanju. Yeah! Based on the biography of Sanjay Dutt, this movie was a super hit of its time because of various reasons. Sanjay Dutt’s life story was not alone the only reason behind its success, rather, I think Ranbir Kapoor’s marvelous acting was a major reason behind it.
The movie gives an important message on “Drug Addiction” and other demons that revolved around him when he reached the heights of “Big Curtain Movie Success.” I think you should watch this movie as you will learn many things from it, such as self-control, patience, perseverance, persistence, and more.
Here is everyone behind this successful masterpiece:-
- Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt
- Vicky Kaushal as Kamlesh Kanhaiyalal Kapasi
- Sonam Kapoor as Ruby
- Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt
- Manisha Koirala as Nargis Dutt

- Jim Sarbh as Zubin Mistry
- Boman Irani as Ruby’s father
Bollywood All-Time Hit Movies
The next one on our list of the top box office collections of Bollywood movies in 2018 is Padmavat. It was released on 25 January 2018. The movie is not just famous for its contribution to the Bollywood gross box collection but also because of the controversies that led to the change of its name from “Padmavati” to “Padmavat.”
Featuring Deepika Padukone, the movie is a Bollywood hit of all time, telling the story of Padmavati or Padmini. She was the Queen of the Mewar Kingdom during the 13th–14th century. The movie told her sacrifice with “Sati” when her spouse (Maharawal Ratan Singh) was defeated in a battle against Allauddin Khilji.
The whole movie is based on real events and stories. The cast of the movie was:-
- Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji
- Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh
- Deepika Padukone as Padmavati
- Jim Sarbh as Malik Kafur
- Aditi Rao Hydari as Mehrunissa

2. Badhaai Ho
If you want to watch a funny movie that teaches life values, I suppose, Badhaai Ho is an example of the perfect top Bollywood movie. It was released on 18 Oct 2018, I personally watched it on the first day. I am sure, just like me, you will love watching the family drama movie for its usual story and somewhat “middle-class family” environment.
Ayushman Khurana played the role of Nakul Kaushik, who was shocked by the news of having a sibling at the age of 25. While he was preparing for his marriage, this news took a new turn of events, and his life was changed thereafter.
Here is everyone involved in this epic movie show:-
- Ayushmann Khurrana as Nakul Kaushik
- Neena Gupta as Mrs Kaushik
- Gajraj Rao as Jeetender Kaushik
- Sanya Malhotra as Renee Sharma
- Surekha Sikri as Dadi
- Sheeba Chaddha as Sangeeta Sharma
- Shardul Rana as Gullar Kaushik
Best Action Bollywood Movies
1. Race 3
On your mark….Get Set….GO! Race 3
Is one of the highest box office collectors of the year 2018. Producers released the movie on 15 June 2018, starring the mainstream character Salman Khan and actress Jacqueline Fernandez. After the previous two super hits Race and Race 2 by Saif Ali Khan, the 3rd part was a great roller-coaster of emotional plots that got opened as the movie continued.
However for me, I think the movie could have done a little better, and it stands next to the first two parts. Given that, here is the starring cast of the movie:-
- Salman Khan as Sikander
- Daisy Shah as Sanjana
- Bobby Deol as Yash
- Anil Kapoor as Shamsher
- Jacqueline Fernandez as Jessica
- Saqib Saleem as Suraj
The next one of the best Bollywood Movies on our list is Simmba. The movie was released on 28 December 2018. It is a spin-off of the original “Singham” movie, which starred Ajay Devgan as the lead actor.
In the movie, Simmba, Ranveer Singh played the lead role where he was raised in Shivgadh, a place where our beloved Singham was born and raised. However, the movie followed a slightly different episode. Opposite to the philosophies followed by Singham, Simmba thought that officers who live in corruption have a better life, which persuaded him to become one. After this, the story continued…..
The cast of the movie
- Ranveer Singh as Inspector Sangram Bhalerao
- Sara Ali Khan as Shagun Sathe
- Ajay Devgn as Bajirao Singham
- Akshay Kumar as Veer Sooryavanshi
