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.
