It took a while, but it was just a matter of time before Shahrukh Khan, arguably Bollywood’s biggest superstar, joined the 100 crore club.
He’s the fourth entrant; behind Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan.
Below is a list of stars with 100 crore grossers.
- 1) Salman Khan (3 films) – Salman tops the list with three films – Dabangg, Ready and Bodyguard. All three movies released over a period of one year (September 2010 – August 2011)
- 2) Aamir Khan (2 films) – 3 Idiots and Ghajini are two of the biggest blockbusters in history. 3 Idiots is the only film to cross the 200 crore mark. Aamir was also the first to go past both the 100 and 200 crore milestones.
- 3) Ajay Devgan (2 films) – Golmaal 3 was a multi-starrer, but Ajay was easily the only salable male star in the film. Released this year, Singham too crossed 100 crores.
- 4) Shahrukh Khan (1 film) – My Name Is Khan was expected to go past 100 crores, but didn’t. SRK’s most ambitious film, Ra One collected more than 100 crores in Week 1 (9 days).
Who will be the next to join the list? Our pick – Hrithik Roshan with Agneepath. Akshay Kumar has a pair chance too, if Desi Boyz turns out to be good and is marketed well.
