  • Golmaal 3 – 2010

As you can see, Aamir Khan was the first cross 100 crores and he also holds the record for 200 crores. Salman Khan has 3 films. SRK was the most-recent to join the list with 2 films.

It’s either comedy or action that has dominated the Indian box-office in recent times. Also, the secret to 100 crores, apart from the presence of a superstar, seems to be short one or two word titles!

Note: According to BOI, Ajay Devgan’s Singham did not cross the 100 crores mark.
