Shah Rukh Khan's "Ra.One" has superseded the box office records of Salman Khan's "Bodyguard," which was released August 31.

Comparing the opening day collections of both films, there was a buzz that "Ra.One" could not break the record of Salman Khan's top grosser film. However, as days pass, the superhero film appears to become the highest grosser of the year.

SRK's well-promoted film "Ra.One" has earned Rs 59 crore in the first three days. It is Rs 8 crore more than the first three days' collection of "Bodyguard."

On the opening day, "Ra.One" collected Rs 18 crore (Rs 3 crore less than "Bodyguard"). However, from Friday, "Ra.One" surpassed the previous records of other top grossers, including "Bodyguard," "Ready," and "Singham," according to the data provided by Koimoi.

"Ready" and "Singham" earned Rs 40 crore and Rs 31 crore respectively in the first three days.

The following table compares the collection details of the big hits in the year.
