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.

Box Office Highlights of 2015:

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

  • Teesra khan is struggling to give even superhits that too with multi starcast & Bhai is giving ATBB easily….. Too much fun.

  • @ajay chocks
    First u ask to yourself did u gave correct verdict of both of the movies ? Corrupt khud h & u r raising question on indicine …!

    Gabbar – HIT
    Baby – semi HIT , also most applauded movie ..sequel already in news ..! Baby will be known as a hit film ..!

  • @5:47pm

    But the 300cr storm has not arrived yet…! Wont stop the press til the storm arrives then n only then can you wear your lungi again comfortably without fear of it being blown away…!

  • @ Indicine- Salman isn’t star of year actually he is superstar of the year. prdp will do magic at box office, i am sure kyonki do mein zyaada maza hai.

  • indicince, can you tell me which year has more number of all time blockbuster?
    this year so far stands with 3.

  • dilwale vs BM
    PRDP vs Ghayal returns
    BB vs bahubali(almost a class) bcoz bahuballi is a ATBB so affected BB very much….LETS SEE WHO GONNA WIN D YEAR

  • Aamir fans after success of D3 were happy for PK to gross just abit more than D3- around 300cr would be nice we thought but wouldnt have minded if it had just grossed 250cr being a non holiday release n non mass appealing commercial film.

    Salman Khan fans after Kicks huge success were happy for BB to just beat D3 n possible enter 300cr club. Anything more was a bonus.

    Then the optimistic aka houdini disappearing youtube fans from paglapur after Krappy Express started chanting about 300cr storm with Teesra Khan Farahs crapfest Halloween Party on New Years. A full 80cr jump from Queens previous film. Now they are chanting about 400cr storm ie doubling of Queens last crappy films collections…! Delusional sums them up.

    But our Joker Boys fanbase are the worst of the lot. They still expect the 60cr ‘hit’ machine actor to not just sail into the 100cr club but sail into the 150cr club with each passing crappy film…! A full 100cr more than his recent form/ average suggests he is capable off. Theres optimism n then theres plain stupidity which sums them up perfectly well…!

  • How can one give all time blockbuster verdict so easily I am sallu fan BB has to collect 300 cr to be called as atbb

  • @ pranav- what is population of andhra pradesh and match it to hindi states population you will get result why baahubali get this kind of business. maine pyar kiya’s telugu version ran 100 days. don’t underestimate bollywood and estimate population of andhra and other states, entertainment tax etc. i accept baahubali is huge but you guy don’t overfly.

  • PRDP sonam kapoor movie collection wise which will become her biggest movie 80cr at best
    & if anupam sir get awesome role then it will do huge business as we know sooraj sir & Anupam sir blockbuster combination.

  • If prdp performs well , which it has every chance of, salman wld be the only actor to get 1000 cr ww gross in a year.. luks quite possible as of now coz BB is luking 575+ gross.. n 425 gross for prdp now after the gr8 success of BB in overseas is very possible!! .. mayb nxt year srk can challenge that nxt year wid 2 big releases!! ..

  • so as i predicted bb is an atbb.. where are the haters??? especially sss.. bb will be a disaster.. lol.. hahaha.. a tight slap on haters face.. lungi udd gyi na :D

  • Lol..Bhai fans getting so excited with such small records.Wait till December and you would get to know what is stardom and what breaking records means

  • Beechara Jodhpur jail ka qaidi no. 343, first failed to beat CE’s first day, Hny’s 1st day, Highest day on 2nd day, highest day on 3rd, weekend record, fastest 100cr record now failed to give highest grosser of all time on EID while KING KHAN came once on EID and broke each and every record from 1st day to lifetime record in India, worldwide and in overseas but our papa’s made star Bhojpuri Bhaijaan failed badly and this is not the first time, he failed more than 7 + times in last 7 years despite of doing south remakes masala films every damn time and taking the help of actors like nawaz still failed, through Nawaz (including Harshali) helped a non-actor from giving back to back flops after disaster Jai ho by overshadowing him in Kick and Nawazudin Bhaijaan but not even nawaz helped him to break opening and lifetime record as a Mega Star like SRK can do that, not a guilty/non actor like Salman who can’t even break highest day record on EID-Sunday + with more screens toh life time khaaq thorega bhojpuri Bhaijaan.. now he will wait for Sooraj & neil/Arman Kholi’s PRDP and will try to break these KING KHAN’s record but the worst actor of India Motu will again fail again and again like in last 7 + years..

    Better for him to be retired instead of wasting Eid being a loser, getting overshadowed by nawaz and 6 years old girl like Harshaali shamefully and damaging EID by giving craps & headache movies like jai ho kick, Bodyguard, Nawazuddin Bhaijaaan, Ett, Ready, Dabangg etc..

  • Srk fans, If Aamir success belongs to Hirani and Dhoom brand and Salman success is due to South remakes, masala and now some child artist then your fake king entire career credit should be given to Yashraj, Dharma, Kajol and now Deepika !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Srk fans, since 2010, MNIK : SRK-Kajol and Kjo will break 3 idiots, not even half of 3 idiots life time. Dabangg Ruled !!!!!!!!!!!!

    2011 : Ra.One, Hollywood vfx effects and Sci-fi genre and during Christmas, Don is back with more action to beat Chulbul Pandey. Both movies fails to beat Dabangg, Bodyguard Rules !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2012 : Yashji-Srk combo, Srk back to his fav genre, Kat & Anushka and top AR Rahman music. Epic and classic is coming. Fails to beat SOS (if compared to equal number of screens) Forget Dabangg. ETT Rules !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2013 : No Salman, King with Masala, Rohit and Deepika. classic masala… CE managed to get solo release after some begging to Balaji and Jitu sir. Broke 3 idiots !!!!!!!!! chennnnaiiiiiyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Expresssssssssssss !!!!!!!!!! Express derailed in 3 months if K3 figures are believed and 4 months by Dhoom 3 bike !!!!!!!!!!!!! Bike rules over train and time for srk to hide in shauchalyaa !!!!!!!!!! D3 Rules !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2014 : Magnum opus HNY is coming, Charlie will bring 300 crs Storm in India (domestic) this Diwali and will smash D3 records. 44 crs opening (manipulated to get initial buzz) but crawled to 200 crs (that to not an official figure). Even with manipulated figures fails to beat Kick. PK Rules !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2015 : BB will be another masala crap, Jai Ho -2 coming and PRDP will be a bhojpuri remake. No Aamir and Hrithik hence King will rule with FAN and Dilwale. BB releases, boooommm and SLB announces clash with Dilwale this Christmas !!!!!! CHHAN KE SE TUTTE KOI SAPNA, JAG SUNA SUNA LAGE !!!!!!!!!!! BB on course to cross 300 mark whereas even 250 crs looks tough for Dilwale even with solo release !!!!!!!!!!!! BB or PRDP will Rule !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How many years you keep giving excuses, please grow up srkians. Once upon a time Srk had ruled and he is still among top stars but do not downgrade other stars, Kismat badi kutti cheez hai !!! Kabhi bhi palat sakthi hai !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even during his prime days, Srk did not see the same level of success as Aamir and Salman enjoying now !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Give respect and take respect !!!!!!!!!!

  • @I am dhakkan : You badly need burnol after BB smashing success which your fake king will never experience (as he is chota mota king for choti moti hits), let me know your address I can courier you a box full of it !!!!!!!!!!!!

  • It is commendable to see BB performing like this despite a clash with BahuBali (release a week before BB). Some other fans keep referring movies like Jaane-Man, Sawaariya, OUATIMD, MAMK for previous records whereas Salman’s movie not only compete with an Epic like Bahubaali but comfortably beats it (worldwide collections). Bahubali is not an ordinary typical south movie release it got much wider release across the world which never happened for any regional movie !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank God Bahubali did not compete with Srk movie else even Generation of Abram’s Grand Children would have to bear that King (fake) defeated Bahubali !!!!!!!!!! Akki toh Bahubali ke Bahu ko bhi match nahi karta Salman toh dor ki baat hai !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • At the end of 2015
    Biggest blockbuster of the year Dilwale
    Star of the year male Srk
    star of the year female kajol
    costliest film of the year BM
    Biggest disaster of the year BV/BM

  • I have nothing against Akki and SRK but fans of both stars (@sss, @javed, @Phenom, @Challa, @Mohit, @I am dhakkan, @Funny chachi) have gone mad after BB success and keep abusing Salman , his movies and his fans !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They will get what they deserve !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lol. Indicine u r wrong i think sirf eid ke mauke par hi iska stardom nazar saal ke baaki mahine me band baj jaati hai and also thanks to kabir khan direction and story warna salaman to eid ka chand ho jaata. Lol
