Salman Khan dominates 2015 with Bajrangi Bhaijaan

ABCD 2 was the biggest opener of 2015, Tanu Weds Manu Returns was the highest grosser of 2015 and Akshay Kumar was the star of the year so far what with both his films performing reasonably well at the box office.

Then came Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Not only did the film break all previous records of the year, but more than doubled the previous best.

Only two films – Salman’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (November) and Shahrukh Khan’s Dilwale (December) – can challenge the records that Salman has set with Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

  • Highest Opening Day of 2015 - Bajrangi Bhaijaan (27.25 cr)
  • Highest Opening Weekend of 2015 - Bajrangi Bhaijaan (102.6 cr)

  • Biggest Success – Bajrangi Bhaijaan (All Time Blockbuster)
  • Biggest Disaster - Bombay Velvet (lost nearly 100 crore of its investment)
  • Costliest film - Bombay Velvet (Cost of production only)
  • Male Star of the year (so far) - Salman Khan
  • Female Star of the year (so far) – Kangana Ranaut
  • Highest Overseas Grosser – Bajrangi Bhaijaan (135 crore)

  • excellent article yet again.drishyam should also get superhit tag at least bcz audience report is outstanding. one of my friend went to see it and was left speechless by the film

  • but i think abcd2 lifetime was 107cr.also update the 3rd week collection of now stands at 94cr approx

  • Awesome, awesome, awesome movie. both BB n Sallu deserve it.
    kudos to Salman Khan for proving again that you are the biggest superstar in India.

  • Biggest star of bollywood Salman Khan..
    I m sure that PRDP would be huge like BB..
    First day 50 crore for PRDP

  • Big Shahrukh fan here.. But no denying that Salman is way ahead at the moment.

    I wish Shahrukh would have got a solo release for Dilwale. It would have set the record straight. Unfortunate for him. Dilwale clash, Fan non-holiday with exams IPL and Raees with Sultan.

  • Nawaz bhaijaan deserve all the above titles
    It is difficult to see that a non actor winning such titles

  • Another Blockbuster will join this list soon after august and that will be Brothers.

    Sure 150 crore +

  • It doesn’t matter who gets the star of the year tag because the star of the millennium tag will forever remain with Raju Hirani.

    He made a out of form big star sanjay dutt gv 2 classic blockbusters and later created
    200cr and 300cr club with 2 more gems

  • @Yogesh.. why not? Combine the collections of Baby and Gabbar.. it will be less than first week of Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

    For Akki fans.. the big question is.. can three Akki films including Brothers, beat the total of Bajrangi Bhaijaan?

    Baby 95 + Gabbar 85 + Brothers 130 (best case) = 310 crore. Hahahaha. Even that will be lower than Bajrangi which will do 320 I think.

    Akshay fans should fight with Ranveer and Varun Dhawan fans… even that they can’t win.. LOL

  • @indicine, i hate it when u overhype Akki… how come u call Akki is the star of year when his two movies failed cross 100 cr???
    Baby: average
    Gabbar: semi Hit

    Varun: Badlapur: hit and ABCD: superhit.

    please enlighten ???

  • I think biggest opener will b sure #dilwale nd biggest grosser will may b #BB or #dilwale nd dying to see #Srk nd #Salman in #yrf next if happens. and what a movie #drishyam is! must watch movie..

  • Dilwale will be highest first day, second day, third day highest weekend highest first week, highest second weekend higest second week and finally highest grosser of all is not base less prediction first weekend collection will be highest of all time because past record of srk whether it ce or hny.first week also all time highest because two holidays in first week sunday and thursday alos a holiday in maharastra. second week highest weekend because 25th for christmus and sunday Then partial holiday for 31st dec and holiday for new per my prediction first day-38 second day 40 third day 42 monday-20 tuesday-18 wednesday-17 thurday-25 due to holiday first week-200 cr secound friday-28cr due to christmus saturday-23 sunday-26 second weekend-77 monday-8cr tuesday-6 wednesday-9 parital holiday for 31st dec thurday-15cr sunday total second week-115 and rest of week-50cr so total will be 200+115+50cr==365cr and overseas total will be 150cr not sure about whether it will break pk record in oversea because pk collected huge in china but in india it will definetly beat pk.

  • Hahaha indicine did u just say Dilwale will challenge the records! Lol :D was really funny. even if it was a solo release it wouldn’t have beaten BB’s lifetime record both in India & worldwide and to add to its worries SLB is clashing with him with BM , so forget challenging any records the best it can do is at least get a hit/super hit status by withstanding a storm like BM .

    Of course PRDP will try to emulate BB’s success and it has got every chance to challenge pk & even better it.

    The only challenge that ‘overacting wale’ can win is of course not getting the title of the ‘worst movie & biggest disappointment of the year 2015’ ( which is currently with ‘Bombay velvet’ )but knowing srk & rohit it looks like it is the only thing that ‘ irritating wale’ will get & not the impossibly improbable BO success which are dreaming of.

    2015’s highest grossers would be
    1. BB / PRDP
    2. PRDP / BB
    3. TWMR
    4. Brothers
    5. BM/ doomed wale.


  • indicine plz leave bajrangi bhaijaan now, I didn’t see so many article of one film, plz stop it!

  • PRDP
    #ATBB jodi is coming.
    They broke SHOLAY’S record with their first film (including regional version collection) and thrashed it the second time. So PK is no big deal as Sholay’s success is much more historic than PK.
    12th November…mark the date
    Asli Indiawale toh iss saal aayega..

  • Salman roz
    Bahubali winner
    No argue becoz agar koi dubbed movie 100cr without any superstar kamayu to bahot badi bat hai
    Bollywood ki koi movie chalo pk ko hi tamil ya telugu me launch karo agar wo 100cr kamale telugu version me to me pk ko bahubali se upar manu
    Till then Bahubali is the India’s biggest blockbuster

  • Salman rolling all over….
    Another atbb prdp is coming soon…
    wait n watch….
    guys personally telling you watch drishyam it’s must watch movie….
    drishyam deserve 75 cr mark….
    ajay n sallu rocks…

  • haha so what our king’s non holiday Fan will create history next year
    800cr in india
    700cr in overseas
    2000cr ww grosser king rox.

  • only actor who can give blockbuster after blockbuster so in last 8 movies of bhaijaan 7 are blockbusters OMG! insanely crazy records

  • Congrats to Drishyam team for becoming the first A GRADE film ever to not be reviewed by indicine!!!
