This unknown actor is India’s most profitable star, last 3 films made Rs 1900 crore; beat Shah Rukh, Rajni, NTR, Yash

This little-known 27-year-old actor has worked in films that have grossed over Rs 1800 crore in the last two years.

Shah Rukh Khan has been having a golden run at the box office in his second innings. The actor has delivered two all-time blockbusters back to back in a single year, a feat no other actor has managed ever. Yet, he is not the highest-grossing Indian actor of the last three years. In fact, the honour does not even go to any top star. A young 27-year-old actor has managed to outdo them all, courtesy a technicality. He has hadsupporting roles in most of the major blockbusters over the last two years.

Meet the actor who beat the collections of Jawan, RRR, KGF 2

Jaffer Sadiq, a 27-year-old young actor from Tamil Nadu, has had the fortune of appearing in some of the biggest Indian films post-pandemic. The actor’s last three films have been Vikram, Jailer, and Jawan, all three of which have been massive blockbusters. Along with his other release Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu, his films have grossed in excess of Rs 1900 crore combined, higher than what any other actor has managed. Shah Rukh Khan is alongside him, while others like Jr NTR, Ram Charan (both RRR), Yash (KGF Chapter 2), and Rajinikanth (Jailer) follow some distance behind.
