Biggest Grossers of 2012 (so far)

As we enter the second quarter of 2012, the first three months have been pretty good for Bollywood. Some films that were expected to do well, failed and a couple of films with limited mass-appeal were the biggest surprise hits.

Below is a Top 5 list of the biggest grossers so far this year


  • Players (29 crore) – Considering the costs, Players is one of the biggest disasters so far this year. But purely in terms of numbers, it’s ahead of surprise hits like Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya and Pan Singh Tomar. FLOP

Ek Main Aur Ek Tu

  • Ek Main Aur Ek Tu (40 crore) – The film opened to glowing reviews, but under-performed at the box-office after it’s first week. Business was best at multiplexes, as the film was mainly targeted towards the urban youth. ABOVE AVERAGE

Agent Vinod

  • Agent Vinod (47 crore expected) – Prior to the film’s release, Agent Vinod was expected to be Saif Ali Khan’s biggest grosser. Unfortunately, the Sriram Raghavan directed film crashed after it’s initial weekend.  BELOW AVERAGE


  • Kahaani (50 crore+ expected) –  The best reviewed film of 2012, is also the biggest ROI (return-on-investment) hit of the year so far. Kahaani has surpassed all expectations at the box-office. SUPER HIT


  • Agneepath (120 crore) – With  collections similar to Salman Khan’s Ready (2011), Agneepath is the biggest grosser of the year so far. It’s also the 5th highest grosser in Bollywood history after 3 Idiots, Bodyguard, Dabangg and Ready! SUPER HIT

Other Noteworthy films that did well in the first quarter

  • Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya – 20 crore
  • Pan Singh Tomar – 13 crore

Films that were expected to do well, but failed

  • Players
  • Jodi Breakers
  • Agent Vinod
  • Ek Deewana Tha

Upcoming Films with potential to beat Agneepath for the top spot in 2012

  • Ek Tha Tiger
  • SRK’s Untitled Next
  • Talaash
  • Dabangg 2

  • all 3 khans ,create or break all possible records till nov 1 2013,after that krrish storm will sweep away boxoffice..sure shot 150 cr week

  • According to me, Agneepath is the best movie of 2012 even if ETT or Dabangg 2 collect more than it :) Truly, Hrithik was outstanding, Priyanka was cute and awesome, Rishi Kapoor was superb and not to forget Sanjay Dutt who was brilliant! Still I think Hrithik overshadowed them all despite having Kancha in the film :P He is the one of the best actors of Bollywood! I really want Hrithik to get Best Actor this year! :) Khan might be kings but Hrithik is an emperor! Anyways, even if ETT, Dabangg 2 or London Ishq collect more than Agneepath, Krrish 3 will crash them all!

  • omg agneepath should be the biggest hit ever i mean its so much better than stupid bodyguard dabangg or ready :D i like 3 idiots :D but agneepath is still best

  • leave king khan even hritik is far more forward than lallu lallu has 3 movies above 100 crore worldwide hritik has four dhoom2 krish znmd agneepath world wide srk has 11 movies that has crossed 100 crore gross worldwide lallu ke to par nikalna challu hue hai

  • check hritik on twitter account he has wrote to king of bollywood” aye aye captain sending more love to you ” so he also thinks king khan is best ab salman me itni akal kab ayegi

  • Agneepath collected 125 crore as told by Taran Adarsh and Komal Nahta. It’s the 4th biggest hit now, not 5th!!

  • Agneepath Agneepath Agneepath all d way!!
    It has crossed 125 crores a/c to taran adarsh and a/c to boi it has 4th heighest distributer share so its a bigger hit dan Ready..
    Audience hav realised the valve of their money so dey wont waste it..dabang/ett/londan ishq all may get good opening but dey ll need a strong script n outstanding performances to break agneepath record..mark my words.

  • srk has 11 films to gross above 100 crores worldwide ,hritik has 5 films to gross above 100 crores worldwide (including kkkg) , salman has only three movies ,amir has two , it means hritik is second and is ahead of people like salman and amir who have worked 20 years but still lesser than hr

  • @vinod why are you also adding kkkg hritik was side actor and won film fare awards for side actor and you are not counting kuch kuch hota hain for salman than salman would have four 100 crore grossers i agree srk is best but salman is number two not hritik just shut up ok

  • so hr and salman fans fighting for number two i do not have a problem but i personaly think hr is way better than salman

  • mein yah nahi kah raha hoon ki salman sabse accha hai srk ke 11 films ka pahuchna really amazing hai but problem ye hai ki hr and srk fans even do not accept salman at number two what a f u c k e r s

  • Srk next will be no 1 becoze salman ka time khatam ho gaya
    Srk next 160 cr+100cr worlwide
    Talash 130cr +40cr wrldwd
    Ett-90 cr+20 cr wrldwd
    Dabang- 95cr+30 cr wrlwd
    Salman times is over eksi movie dekh pak jate hain don 2 our agnipath our rowdi rathor dekhne ke baad ett our dabang 2 only rock single screen …not to multiplex..
    Our rahi srk next will be rock both multipilex nd single screen becoz everyon like it srk love story movies

  • Agneepath is best movie and i think agneepath will collect every award of this year.
    It will collect award for best movie, best director, best actor, best actor in negative role, best female actor, best music etc etc
