After Bodyguard being declared a stupendous hit, Salman Khan is undoubtedly the ruling king as far as the Indian and US box office is concerned leaving behind Shahrukh Khan, known popularly as the 'Baadshah of Bollywood'.

The mind boggling collections of Bodyguard has made it the biggest opener, even surpassing that of previous blockbuster's like Dabangg, 3 Idiots and My Name Is Khan.

While the Salman-Kareena starrer Bodyguard has almost touched Rs 100 crore mark at the Indian Box Office in the past one week, the romantic-action film has reportedly fetched a collection of $1.4 million at the US Box Office.

However, the same cannot be said of Bodyguard at the UK Box Office. The film saw a collection of £840,000 in its opening week there. This makes it only the second highest Bollywood opening in the country. Shahrukh Khan-Kajol starrer My Name Is Khan still rules the UK Box office with an opening of £936,000.

Though Salman Khan has managed to woo the audiences in India and the US, it seems like Sallu has to try harder to win the hearts of the UK audiences to beat his arch rival Shahrukh Khan at the box office.
