Gulf saw a huge year in 2023 as the Shahrukh Khan starrers dominated with two films going over $10 million. As the overseas market came back to life from the mid 90's it has been about three markets (USA / Canada, United Kingdom and Gulf). Initially the domination was from the United Kingdom and then towards the end of the 2000's it became the the US / Canada market.



Today Gulf holds the highest total ever for the first time as no film from US / Canada or United Kingdom as done as much as Jawan has in Gulf. It is the highest ever total from an overseas circuit for a Hindi film. There is the the opening up of the Saudi market post the pandemic which helps the numbers but the issue has been generally UAE is not what it used to be pre pandemic barring a few exceptions.



The top three films are all Shahrukh Khan starrers and only he can do these numbers of Jawan and Pathaan while for others $10 million would still be a huge target and maybe it can be down on a Eid release. It is basically Gulf and United Kingdom which sets Shahrukh Khan apart from the others in Overseas. as $15 million in Gulf and £4 million in United Kingdom only he can do when teh film is right.



Dunki sitting in third place pretty much sums up the star power in Gulf. You could also lock a $5 million total in Pakistan for the likes of Jawan and Pathaan but that is different story all together and not likely to happen in the near future.
