Bollywood Biggest Grossers

With the boom of multiplexes, the life of films at theaters has reduced drastically. Gone are days when a film needed a silver jubilee (25 weeks) or a golden jubilee (50 weeks) to be considered a success. These days, most films are out of theaters in a week, yet recover their investment. Films that run longer though, go on to earn bucket loads of money and are termed money-spinners or blockbusters by the trade.

Below is a list of 5 such films, which are Bollywood’s biggest grossers ever! (Figures include collections from both overseas and India) 

  • Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (160 crores) – Rab Ne marked the return of Bollywood’s most famous actor-director jodi – SRK and Aditya Chopra. The film released just after the 26/11 attacks and film buffs came out in hordes, not just in India but overseas where SRK films always do well.
  • My Name Is Khan (188 crores) – The Shahrukh Khan starrer underperformed in India, but was Bollywood’s biggest hit ever in the overseas market. The overseas collections of the film, just fell short of 100 crores.
  • Ghajini (190 crores) – For a film that released in 2007, Ghajini is a box office monster! It was the first film to break the elusive 100 crore nett mark in India and the worldwide gross almost touched 200 crores!
  • Dabangg (215 crores) – Salman always commanded a strong following in the B and C centers, and his films did great business on Single Screens. Multiplex was a different story though as films like Wanted and Veer failed to make any impact. Dabangg changed all that! Chulbul Pandey charmed audience world-wide and was Salman Khan’s biggest grosser ever!
  • 3 Idiots (340 crores) – While 3 Idiots was expected to beat Ghajini, noone expected the film to almost double its collections. The collections were so strong and the repeat value so high, that 3 Idiots broke the Ghajini record in less than 2 weeks. Its undoubtedly the film to beat and we expect it to remain at Top 1 for quite a while. Maybe until Aamir Khan returns with Dhoom 3?

Some points

  • The list is dominated by the three big Khan’s of the industry. Aamir has two films in Top 3 and the total of his two films world-wide is a mind boggling Rs 530 crores!
  • Shahrukh Khan has two in Top 5 but what’s interesting to note is that, both of his films released during the ‘non-festive’ weekend. Of the other films – Dabangg released during Eid, 3 Idiots and Ghajini during Christmas.
  • Salman’s Dabangg was a huge grosser. Will Ready make it to the Top 5 of Bollywood’s Biggest Grossers?

What do you think of the list? Comments below



  • joke=ready will break all records hahahha now look where it is in gutar…..
    RA 1 ……….Picture abi baki hai mere dost

  • Amir & SRK are the best actors not Salman. Salmaan is dabang. Yes we are waiting for Ra-one no doubt it is not going to be a avg movie, either it will be blockbuster or flop. I’ve seen ready ..its looks avg movie.

  • A strange phenomenon All the Cheapster, womanizer, murderer,drunkard,and criminals fans are scared to death of The SRK. His upcomming Ra one and Don2 are going to be released soon.but don’t be scared,the Badshah has a different set of fans, the decent educated class are his target.he does not go for cheap stuff in actions and dialogues to have masses going crazy for the cheapness of it. His movies re always for educated upper class who have a standard of their own.the parents and children don’t feel ashamed of seeing his movies is acredit for itself. So don’t be afraid it will be unbeatable record setter Ra one and international all time record holder Don2. But for class audienc with no character dheela or other cheap acts or dialogues

  • Haha well said Fareeha. Character Dheela and Dhinka Chika are cheap marketing tactics. The makers very well know that by including these stupid song, mass idiots will come to watch the movie in hordes. But what’s the point? All Salmanazars movies are crap shits. Unbearably stupid.

    I respect Aamir SRK and Hrithik. Akshay and Salman are cheapos

  • le mental peoples(all SRGAY fans) you are telling all flop films list and u r telling all of them are superhits and blockbusters and why slaman fans should be worried of SRGAY’s success because the real india’s king is SALMAN KHAN.onething you remember guys SRGAY cannot even match up 5 or 10% of SALMAN KHAN

  • salman khan fans are not cheap you people who say that SRGAY no.1 are cheap dont have rights to say to other people that they are cheap.onething u mind it rascalas SRGAY’s EGO, jealousy and greediness only will kill him like anything and then u mindless peoples y u are fighting with words here

  • All the SRK fans are shooring from the hit . It’s really runny that some one called Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, My name is Khan and Rab Ne Bana de jodi as super hit :-).
    Get your fact right by referring to the actual collections . Please log on to
    Mr. SRK has bought the media and gets huge support with great reviews and hype around the movie but sad that MNIK, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna didn’t work :-( refer to the collections and box office verdict in the site..
    Also someone said Ready is not going to work , joke again. Third highest grosser of all time :-)

    Just because you love SRK , stop lying :-(

  • Shahrukh Khan (Urdu: شاہ رُخ خان, Hindi: शाहरुख़ ख़ान; born 2 November 1965), often credited as Shah Rukh Khan, is an Indian film actor and a prominent Bollywood figure, as well as a film producer and television host. Khan began his career appearing in several television serials in the late 1980s. He made his film debut in Deewana (1992). Since then, he has been part of numerous commercially successful films and has earned critical acclaim for many of his performances. Khan has won fourteen Filmfare Awards for his work in Indian films, eight of which are in the Best Actor category (a record). In 2005, the Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shri for his contributions towards Indian Cinema.
    Khan’s films such as Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), Chak De India (2007), Om Shanti Om (2007) and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) remain some of Bollywood’s biggest hits, while films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001), Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), Veer-Zaara (2004), Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006) and My Name Is Khan (2010) have been top-grossing Indian productions in the overseas markets, making him one of the most successful actors of India.[2]
    Since 2000, Khan branched out into film production and television presenting as well. He is the founder/owner of two production companies, Dreamz Unlimited and Red Chillies Entertainment. Globally, Khan is considered to be one of the biggest movie stars,[3] with a fan following numbering in the billions[4] and a net worth estimated at over 2,500 crore (US$555 million).[5] In 2008,

  • Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (Hindi: दिलवाले दुल्हनिया ले जाएँगे; English: The Big Hearted Will Take the Bride), also known as DDLJ,[3] is a Hindi language film released on 20 October 1995. A romantic comedy, the film marked the directorial debut of Aditya Chopra, and stars Shahrukh Khan and Kajol.
    Earning over Rs 106 crore in India and Rs 15 crore overseas, the film became the biggest Bollywood hit of the year,[4] as well as one of the biggest Bollywood hits of all time.[5][6] It remains the longest running film in the history of Indian cinema. As of 2011, it is still playing at the Maratha Mandir theatre in Mumbai.[7]
    Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge was included in the Cinema India showcase, “The Changing Face of Indian Cinema”, which toured the United States in July and August 2004.[8] Indiatimes Movies ranks the movie amongst the 25 Must See Bollywood Films.[9] It was one of the two Hindi films in the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die list (the other being Mother India).[10] It was also placed twelfth on the British Film Institute’s list of top Indian films of all time

  • In 1993, Khan won acclaim for his performances in villainous roles as an obsessive lover and a murderer, respectively, in the box office hits, Darr and Baazigar.[25] In Khan’s entry in Encyclopedia Britannica’s “Encyclopedia of Hindi Cinema” it was stated that “he defied the image of the conventional hero in both these films and created his own version of the revisionist hero.”[26] Darr marked his first collaboration with renowned film-maker Yash Chopra and his banner Yash Raj Films, the largest production company in Bollywood. Baazigar, which saw Khan portraying an ambiguous avenger who murders his girlfriend, shocked its Indian audience with an unexpected violation of the standard Bollywood formula.[27] His performance won him his first Filmfare Best Actor Award
