Taare Zameen Par is Aamir Khan's biggest grosser ever!

It is a well-known fact that - post the criticism and brickbats that Dharmesh Darshan's Mela (2000) received - Aamir Khan became extremely selective.

And that has turned out to be a correct and career defining decision, looking at Aamir's almost cent per cent success record (barring an average Mangal Pandey).

It will come as a surprise to many - who are not very Box-Office savvy - that Aamir Khan's Raja Hindustani (1996) is his biggest universal blockbuster - till date - based on its superb run across every circuit of India!

While Raja Hindustani netted around 50 crores from India, the only recent Aamir movie to break that long standing record is Fanaa (2006), which netted close to 55 crores from India (without Gujarat).

Now, the good news:

Aamir Khan's directorial debut venture - Taare Zameen Par - has surpassed Fanaa and is likely to end its run with around 60 crores, just from India!

For the records, Taare Zameen Par has so far netted around 59 crores from India, as of this week.

Well, TZP's performance is amazing and I'm quite sure that, Aamir's upcoming action thriller - Ghajini - will beat it by many a miles!

Stay tuned in!
