Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan may be riding high on the success of HAPPY NEW YEAR, with the film crossing 100 crore mark and inching towards 200 crore club. However, what could upset him is the fact that HAPPY NEW YEAR is bit behind in terms of minting money at the Box-office than his archrival Salman Khan's KICK, which released a few months back. Well how? Read on to know…


While Shahrukh and Farah Khan's dream project HNY made 151 crore in the first week of its release, Salman Khan's Sajid Nadiadwala directed KICK netted around 160 crore (to be validated) during the first week. By the second weekend, SRK's HAPPY NEW YEAR has made 21-22 crore, making it to a total of 173 cr, whereas Salman's KICK, reportedly, raked in 34 crore, summing up to 194 cr.

While the Jacqueline, Nawazuddin and Randeep starrer, KICK netted 49-50 crore, nearly 210 crore in just two weeks from India, our trade sources reveal that the Deepika, Abhishek, Sonu, Boman, Vivaan starrer HAPPY NEW YEAR could earn 35 crore (at the best) in the second week, thus adding it to 186 crore.

Considering the above stats, it quite appears Salman Khan ‘kicks' ahead of Shahrukh Khan in the Box-office race. It had even shattered the records set by SRK's CHENNAI EXPRESS. However, KICK was the second highest grosser of Hindi cinema, after Aamir Khan's DHOOM 3.
