Has Love Aaj Kal beaten Ghajini?

Question by Ramya in the ask us section: Why are some sites saying that Love Aaj Kal has broken Ghajini’s record? At other sites, it is written that LAK’s collections are second to Ghajini. What’s the truth? If LAK is the second highest grossing film after Ghajini, then why is it being said that it has broken Ghajini’s record?

Well, Love Aaj Kal is on par with the second biggest hit of 2008 (Rab Ne Bana DI Jodi) but the film or any other film for that matter is yet to match the historic collections witnessed on the 25th of December last year.

The first week nett (in India) of Love Aaj Kal is 40 crores plus, the film is by far the biggest hit of 2009 and easily Saif’s biggest solo money spinner. But the collections are about 25 – 30% lower than Ghajini.

Update: Love Aaj Kal has fallen heavily in Week 2. Second week should be around 12  crores which should take its overall total close to 55 crores. 2 weeks combined would fall well short of Ghajini’s first week nett!!!



  • hi thanks for clearing that I was as confused as the next person. I know a lot of producers hype about their film collections and that is just to project favourable results. The truth is greatly appreciated.

  • No ways. No one can break ghajini’s collection except aamir khan himself. LAK is far behind than ghajini. Ghajini has grossed almost 400 crores till the end of the show[Wikipeida]. I am sure 3 idiots will break ghajini’s record. Aamir is ace khan, king of bollywood and perfectionst

  • Yippee!!!! Aamir continues to be the emir of Box office!!! Thanks so much Indicine, for this honest and un biased answer!!

    Cheers for Aamir!!!!

  • hey
