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)

  • @Challa: we know about breaking records by manipulation & using K3 calculator…

    @iamAKN- HNY first weekend- 99.6cr tr.
    BB’s- 101.2cr tr.

  • @iam akal ke andhe the same Nawaz will help your King in saving his Flop career in Raees.. Our King is a flop actor who needs multistarrers and top banners to save him..and also his aukaat without DP and RS is 125crs..first let him cross that without DP..Also mark my words solo or clash, Dilwale won’t beat PRDP.. Forget BB..

  • srk should learn from aamir and salman’s honesty their producers figure r same as trade figure because they care about their fans and wrong mesg should not go to thwir fans and srk is such a cheap person i mean 7 crore difference on opening day really srk should grow up why not he can consider himself as the best actor of bollywood only why he wants to be a superstar by faking collections.

  • @IamNangakhan, Salman has given highest grosser of all time way back in 1994 and it held the record for 7 years while your Hoku couldn’t beat that for 13 years and then he gave first time all time grosser in 2013 after struggling for 21 years and with help of rohit papa and then that record couldn’t even hold for 4 months. Shame on such a star. Also he is still struggling to give higher grosser of the year since 2008. Shame on such overrated star.

  • My predictions never gone wrong. This is my prediction for Dudhwaale.
    1st day-23 crores
    2nd day-27 crores
    3rd day-29 crores
    4th day(Monday)-12 crores
    5th day-9 crores
    6th day- 7 crores
    7th day- 4 crores
    1 week total- 111 crores
    2nd week- 30 crores
    Life time- 141 crores-
    Verdict- below average.

  • Huh ….!!
    what should I actually say about sallu hmmmmmmm….))
    the biggest shame was that he couldn’t break hny opening day on its 2nd and 3rd day . ?
    no problem ! We will give bhai another
    chance to break hny’s opening day with
    prdp this time no excuse will be acceptable…. !!
    just think one thing !!
    if srk released rbdj on holiday then srk would have been the 1st person to give 100 crore club for the first time ever !!
    * if srk had worked hard on Ra one script and everything on it … similarly, if srk chose right script in 2012 not jthj…..
    then srk could have ruled from 2008 to 2012 ……
    if Chennai express didn’t face any clash
    and plus if the wom was extremely positive then only God could save sallu and aamir……… u all know what I mean !
    again srk chose 3 hours long movie with flop director Farah….. !!!
    I don’t want to go any further…..!!!
    now that srk has chosen right scripts , the
    release dates Both Dilwale and Raees might face clash….. Fan is non holiday and it will come during exam…. and 100 more tensions have been added to us …..!!!
    I hope srk release Fan After Eid 2016 not on 15th April…. God plz do sth !!!
    let’s see what will happen in upcoming months …..!!
    I’m really pissed off ….!

  • Now that srk has chosen right scripts the
    release dates are not good ….!
    both dilwale and Raees might face clash
    and Fan doesn’t have good release date either…….!!!

    My biggest dream is that dilwale get solo
    release date , then it should prove everything by itself……..!!
    let the clash between Raees and sultan happen…… although clash only dents each other’s business nothing else but bhai
    grudgingly eyed Eid 2016 while he knew Raees is 100 % confirmed for Eid 2016 .
    but took against him that’s what I want the
    clash to happen…..!!!
    I am extremely upset and not zero satisfied with Fan release date ….
    I know yrf is hypocrite that’s why they chose 15 april…. but srk should allow it take place….. !!!
    srk sir plz if u see and read our comments
    plz plz plz release Fan after Eid 2016 !!
    if u released Fan on independence of 2015
    then it would be all right …..!!!
    can’t write any more !

  • Aamir n Salman Khans films from year to year gettin’ higher n higher collections(3 idiots<Dhoom 3<PK or Dabang 2<KickCE>HNY). Happy for Aamir n Salman!

    if it fails we have bajirao to blame…
    till then lets chant… evry 1 join us…
    dilwale 1000cr…
    fan – oscar winner…
    raees – will beat salmans sultaan…. HGOTY ..
    { plz note all these things r in our dreams only }

  • You can’t find any positive review abt HNY and you can’t find any negative review abt Bajrangi Bhaijaan.#Difference

  • ”From Kyon Ki to Bajrangi Bhaijaan I’ve seen his stardom go through the roof. Currently he’s India’s biggest superstar.” – Kareena Kapoor

  • Salman Khan Advises Harshaali’s Mom Not Let Harshaali Do Small Roles or Insignificant Characters in Serials & Films

  • here i am reading reading commentss having more likes than dislikes(of megastar bhai) bcoz more disliked comment belong to Varunwaale fans(once upon a tym megastar srk)

  • Or prdp i think highest grosser hoga this year. Opening 45cr. Weekend 150cr. Week 220cr. Lifetime 350cr. Overseas 100cr+

  • Dilwale clash with Bm .. 18 dec ko agar dilwale release hua to opening 15-20cr. Weekend 60-70cr. Week 125cr. 2nd weekend holiday weekend 50cr hoga . 2nd week 75cr. 3rd week 30cr. Lifetime 240cr. Overseas 100cr.

  • Salman Khan Advises Harshaali’s Mom Not Let Harshaali Do Small Roles
    Becoz he wants give more hits with the help of harshali
    Even akshay left Entertainment after one movie
    Kuch toh sharam karo bhai

  • 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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    original comment by HRITHIK

  • @iamakn:
    If Jai ho is a disaster with 113cr collections then jthj(101cr), don2(104cr) etc are mega disasters due to their high budget and multi starcast.

    According to you BB is collecting over 300cr due Nawajuddin’s stardom. Fine, but your king yet surpass 210cr figures. So, Nawajuddin is much much bigger star than your king. And also after seeing such power king agreed to play 2nd lead to nawaj in in Raees.

  • @javed:
    You are still crying on jthj & ra one scripts!!!!! Bhai yeh toh wohi Baat hui “agar Sahjahan mera Dada hota toh aaj Tajmahal mera hota”…. Lol.

    And Dilwale is clashing with BM becoz anybody can clash with chota mota star like your king.
