Ek Tha Tiger vs YJHD vs 3 Idiots: Detailed comparison

Over the last 4 years or so, almost all major releases starring the Khan’s were expected to break the 202 crore record of 3 Idiots. Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger was the only film that came close, but fell short by around 2.5 crores.

Now, with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani on a record-breaking spree at the box office, the film is almost certain to be the 3rd highest grossing film in Bollywood.

But how close can the film get to two of the biggest grossers ever? Below is a detailed comparison between Ek Tha Tiger, YJHD and 3 Idiots.

UPDATE: 3 weeks after release, YJHD is ahead of 3 Idiots but below Ek Tha Tiger. The film is unlikely to surpass the lifetime collections of both films, but should cross the 190 crore mark.

  • Well,ranbir is about 20 years younger than the khans,still he is giving them a big compition. . .yjhd will surely be the 3rd grosser movie in bollywood. .
    Anyway 3 idiots is the fav movie of many people including me too. . .it’s good to see a good movie earning good collection. . .but there are some crap movies too who are also big grossers. . .

  • “YJHD” will end up as 3rd biggest grosser of bollywood and will fail to break the lifetime collections of “3 idiots” and “ETT” by more than 25 crores of margin.

  • Indicine:all the khans movies were expected to cros 3i record? .then what akshay and hrithik movier doing.akshay and hrithik have given big hits than srk and amir after 2009.only salman is ahead of them.dont use the word khans always.it is irritating,analyse them individually.unwantedly u r spreading negativity towards them.i dont know u wil post my coment or not.dont insult the superstars like akshay and hrithik

  • In the above table 2 figures r outstanding and unbelievable
    1)32.92 crores opening of ETT
    2)26.5 crores after fourth weekend of 3 idiots.

  • @pavan, completely agree with you dude, almost all the websites are biased for khans, they fail to recognise hrithik and akshay who have given bigger blockbusters than srk,aamir.

  • 3 idiots collected 19cr in its third weekend…! Thats huge so lets see if Ranbir can beat that figure. I believe it can do 190cr coz of no noticeable competition next week so it will just keep raking in the moolah.

  • It’s an unbelievable figure what 3 idiots had earned after 4th weekend and it’s hilarious when we see ek tha tigers’ for the same. I guess those kind of movies are only good for 1st week before the talk of movie’s quality reaches the people.

  • this movie certainly has been a fluke hit. no one expected it to be a such a big hit. n as far as ranbir is concerned i think his tough times starts now. now his every movie collections will be compared with YJHD n anything less will be considered as a failure or said to be underperformed. ranbir will struggle to repeat such collections in near future. n this very media will pull him down. it would be interesting to see how he reacts to it. there’s a long way to go for him to become no.1. everythin fell in place for YJHD. right from superhit music, ranbir deepika pairing(first time after their break-up), big production houses, huge marketing n hype, youth oriented film, huge solo release n offcourse the timing of its release. post IPL is the bestest time to release any movie n the summer vacations just boosted its collections through roofs. everyday was a holiday! no other big release (YPD2 never excited the people), open weeks n summer vacations still goin on has meant smooth sailing for YJHD. this is not one of those blockbusters which became a blockbuster due to an actor’s stardom n neither this is one of those blockbusters which became a blockbuster because it was a brilliant movie. it became a blockbuster because it just got lucky! so many factors fell in place for YJHD which is a rare occurance.

  • @pavan aki and hritic are superstar, not megastra, they did one hit film and three flop film. Industry never expect much from then, and 3khans are megastar, i think i don’t need to explain this, you know the fact

  • End of the 2014 there were two khan only in the top 5 and they are going to aamir and salman because
    1. Pk 240 cr.
    2. Kick 230 cr.
    3. Dhoom3 215 cr.
    4. Mental 207 cr.
    5. 3iditos 202 cr.

  • romance express
    if u say khans r megasttar and akki ,hrithik r not ,then we will start in a different way.
    u know what will happen.
    in which way amir and srk r bigger than akshay and hrithik.
    srk dont have any superhit from past 4 years,amir dont have a hit even since 2009.
    request to indicine be genuine.
    its not good for anyone,dont show bias

  • sumeet
    its not fail to recognice.
    its a total bias.where srk dont have any superhit from past 4 years and amir dont have even a hit since 2009.
    and akshay given 1bb and super hits last year.hrithik given 120 cr grosser.
    but stil say khans movies were expected to do 200cr.this totally bias.
    i am not a hater of khan.because of these all these things ,khans will end soon.
    after two or three years they will become 50+.they will end .
    then i will see for whom they will support

  • well now there is no film of srk in top 10!:- 1)3i 2)ett 3) dabangg 2 4) bodyguard 5) dabangg 6) YJHD(will surpass dabangg2 & become rd highest) 7)rowdy rathore 8) ready 9) agneepath 10)raone(will get kicked out after the mega releases of this year)…still indicine is using the word KHANS!! STOP IT. Its just salman & to a small extent aamir…srk doesn’t deserve it…

  • End of 2015 history 1.S.barjatya next salman.300cr 2.kick salman khan.255cr 3.pk.amir khan.235cr 4.dhoom3.230cr 5.Mental.220cr 6.3idiot. 202cr 7.Ett.199cr 8.No entry my entry.190-195cr 9.prabhu deva next salman.185cr 10.chennai express.180cr king of box office only khan salman khan panga ni lena

  • this is certainly huge,ranbir is upcoming megastar give 4-5 years he will b in the league of khans.Srk and amir is a mega star global phenomena,salman is a local mega star ,ranbir might come upto salman but cetainly not in leaue of amir or srk.Let ranbir’s movie sell in oveseas first bcz performing in india is not only seen these day today is the world of globalisation overseas collection mean a lot

  • @Bollywood, don’t be so jealous, that is what some of you said when barfi collected huge. and boxoffice is not everything. people don’t even remember huge hits like houseful 2, but still appreciate good movies like Wake Up Sid and Rocket Singh.

  • @romance express, you still didn’t learn english and you are still commenting here . burn yourself, when hrithik and akshay would be giving this year’s biggest blockbusters, you would be hiding underground repairing your disaster express.
    @young, predict whatever you can, nobody expected yjhd to make such huge money but now everyone’s surprised, keep predicting those crap films , but at the end of the year the tables would be turned.

  • I agree with @bollywood, as most of the factors just worked well, and even the producers are surprised by such a response.

    As to comparing the age of Ranbir to the Khans is not correct, cuz Salman had given a blockbuster MPK which was his first solo, so also Hrithik, so age has got nothing to do with it.

    Ranbir’s stardom is riding high, and it is good for him and the producers of his movie.

  • Ranbir is a rising star and may brake some records too in future. I am worried about srk n his fans cause he is the only one who failed to reach 150 crores among three Khans. If Ranbir continues to riot like this then people will forget srk very soon. Aamir Khan is class no one can be compared to him in terms of quality cinemas he does. As far as Salman Khan, he has broke his own Box Office records consistently that too with average content of movies. Ranbir will have to prove the same consistently to beat Salman Khan. But it is great to see such a youngster giving competition to biggies !!!!

  • Popular couples who reunited in films after their break-up in actual life is a new formula for success:

    1. Salman-Kat : ETT : 199 cr
    2. Ranbir-Deepika : YJHD : 140 cr+ (still running)

  • @bollywood well said bro, khans are the present megastar and ranbir may be the future megastar, you can’t pridict it 100%, as after the release of knph, every one pridict hro is a megastar but his carear is over after 2006, now hro have no 200cr film, no blockbuster after 2006 and just one 100cr film, k3 will decide hro future can he sustain in bollywood. But we should not forget shahid also, he is also a good actor

  • @khankapoor, WakeupSid was just an average story film. Ranbir’s role made the difference. He was too brilliant.
