Tiger Zinda Hai vs Thugs of Hindostan vs Bandhua: Who's the biggest Khan of them all? 2018 will decide

Himesh Mankad | Updated on: 8 September 2016, 18:48 IST

Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have blocked three major festive release dates in 2018 - Eid, Diwali and Christmas - for their respective Box-Office releases.

The Khan trio are expected to take the Bollywood by storm with their 2018 releases - Tiger Zinda Hai, Thugs of Hindostan and Bandhua (tentative title).

While Shah Rukh and Aamir have officially announced the release date of their films, Bandhua and Thugs of Hindostan, respectively, Salman Khan is mum about Tiger Zinda Hai. However, distributors are already gearing up for a Salman Khan - YRF film during the Eid 2018 holidays - the Sultan star's favourite release slot.

It looks like all three Khan films will enjoy a solo release and will be able to benefit from the festival holidays. It will be interesting to see which of the three manage to strike gold at the Box Office.

It is not news that the Khan trio has long enjoyed a monopoly at the Box Office. Over the last two decades, the Khans have often booked festive slots for their Box Office releases.

Here's a breakdown of which Khan has performed the best at the Box Office in the last 27 years, with a special focus on the years which have seen the release of more than one Khan film. Take a look:
