Ajay Devgan Movies: First Week Box Office Collections

Back in the 90s and early 2000s, Ajay Devgan was always a consistent performer and occasionally delivered a few hits. But the National award winning actor was never a major crowd-puller. The turning point in his career came in 2010, when Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, Golmaal 3 and Rajneeti did record business at the box office.

Since then, Ajay has featured in several hugely successful films like Singham, Bol Bachchan and Son Of Sardar (which clashed with a major film like Jab Tak Hai Jaan).

His latest release, Himmatwala, has turned out to be one of the biggest disappointments of the year so far. The first week collections of the Sajid Khan directed film was lower than some of Ajay’s last few ‘mass-entertainers’ like Singham and Bol Bachchan.

  • Son Of Sardar – 69.8 crore (Diwali)
  • Golmaal 3 – 62.5 crore (Diwali)
  • Bol Bachchan – 60.75 crore
  • Rajneeti – 54 crore
  • Singham – 49 crore
  • Himmatwala – 38.7 crore
  • Once Upon A Time In Mumbai – 34.3 crore
  • Rascals – 28.95 crore
  • Tezz – 14.41 crore

    1. Is Ajay Devgan really a superstar?
    2. What is he without Rohit Shetty?

  • AJAY DEVGN IS A SUPERSTAR. HE IS IN THE TOP LEAGUE AS THE LEADING MAN FOR THE LAST 23 YRS STARTING FROM 1991 TILL 2013. THIS IS A TESTAMENT TO HIS SUCCESS . THE FILMS HE IS DOING IN THE NEXT 5 YRS, WILL KEEP HIM IN THE TOP BRACKET AS WELL. THERE ARE VERY FEW INSTANCES THAT A LEADING MAN HAS SUCCESSFULLY ACTED FOR CONTINUOUSLY 30 YRS HENCE WE HAVE VERY FEW SUPERSTARS. AJAY DEVGN WILL CERTAINLY BE ONE OF THEM WHEN WE WILL LOOK AT THE FILM HISTORY.

  • We now clearly has a final say for the SOS vs jthj battle. Jthj is the clear winner. SOS benefited big time from the clash.

  • ans to rohit:
    1 yes ajay is a superstar
    2 he doesnt need rohit shetty as he has been in the industry for 20 years
    3 if SOS would be solo release then its collection would be between 120-125 cr,but it clashed with JTHJ

  • @indicine, can you please compare the opening weekends of last 3 or 4 movies of these superstars? please add ranbir and emran also. so we can decide who are superstars and who aren’t. i’m sure salman and shahrukh will be leading the list.

K786 chartbuster music. But himmatwala’s no song is chartbuster. Can you tell me How himmat wala is better than k-786???

  • Boi is listed as world’s 2nd correct bo website. And that site says akshay is on no2 after salman. Ormax media’s poll say 1st is salman and 2nd akshay. Or khan kapoor ajay ko better keh raha hay. Even barfi collected 110 cr and ajay cant touch that.
