Top 10 Bollywood Movies – First Friday Business

List of the Top 10 Bollywood movies ever to perform best on its first Friday (the day of release)..

  1. Ghajini
  2. Love Aaj Kal
  3. Kambakht Ishq
  4. Singh Is King
  5. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
  6. Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani
  7. De Dana Dhan
  8. Blue
  9. Race
  10. Om Shanti Om

Quite obviously the list is dominated by the top stars in the Industry.

Stars with most films in the Top 10

  1. Akshay Kumar dominates the list with 4 films in the Top 10. Apart from Chandni Chowk To China and 8 x 10 Tasveer every Akki film in the 15 months has opened exceedingly well on its opening day. This week’s release De Dana Dan is at No 7, below Kambakht Ishq and Singh Is King.
  2. Shahrukh Khan comes second with two releases – Rab Ne and Om Shanti Om – in the Top 10.
  3. Saif Ali Khan is third due to Race being a multi starrer. Saif’s solo film Love Aaj Kal is in the Top 10 too.
  4. Aamir Khan’s box office monster Ghajini, the biggest grosser in the history of the industry tops the list. 3 Idiots should easily make it to the No 2 spot by the end of the year.
  5. Ranbir Kapoor the youngest star in the list scored big time with Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani.


  • Hrithik Roshan had just one release in the last 2 years – Jodha Akbar’s box office opening was restricted due to the ban in a few states in India and also the fact that the film was a historical.
  • None of Salman Khan’s films have performed well enough to hit the Top 10.
  • Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan have a 100% success ratio in the last 3 years.
  • 5 films in the Top 10 are from 2009.

  • hey ,thats great, iam a big akshay kumar fan and isnt it obvious that he is the biggest crowdpuller out of all.
    cuz only the opening can be guaranteed by a suprstar n rest for the movie to sustain it has to be good,unfortunately the movies couldnt turn out to be that entertaining this year but ive seen de dana dan its the craziest comedy of the year n thats for sure the biggest success too.

  • Good point Yashpal, added to the article. Also by the end of the year, 3 Idiots should be right up there at Number 2!

  • Tht show akshay kumar star power!!!!Even his some movie flop but still everyone have curiosity to watch his movie!!!!!Mostly his comedy movies do well….there is 3 comedy movie in tht list!!!!!!!!!If akshay choose more nice script then certainly no one can stop him……Next year again….5 or 6 movie will be released..Katha metha(priyadarsan),Houseful(sajid khan),action reply(Vipul shah),pathali house(CCTC director) and Hello india(donot know who is directing) and if possible then their is singh is king-2 n hera pheri 4………..My god!!!!He should make 2-3 movie a year ….Hope many movie will not destroy his starpower!!!!!!!!!!Hope akshay have done good work on all movie except Hello India(THis movie will surely flop because this was movie of 1997 or somewhat tht time and wasnot finished and recently movie whole portion was complete …DOnot expect anything from movie)

  • Which film is the biggest hit of the year so far?

    A. Wanted is the biggest hit of 2009 till date from all Hindi films followed by Love Aaj Kal although Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani may cross the business of Love Aaj Kal. 2012 is the biggest hit of all films released this year in the All India market.

    Is Blue the most expensive Hindi film ever at 100 crore?

    A. It is most expensive Hindi film ever but the cost is not 100 crore. The film is very expensive because Akshay Kumar pocketed the biggest pay day ever for a Indian film star and even other artistes in the film were paid near double their market prices.

  • Other stars were paid double of their market prices is untrue. If the budget indeed is close to 100 crores or even 80 crores, then the movie is a FLOP. Frankly speaking don’t think the budget exceeded 60 crores. Don’t go by all the huge budgets that are announced these days. They (the makers) said Love Story 2050 and Himesh Reshammiya’s Aap Ka Surroor were the biggest budget films back then when the film released. AKS nett collections were less than 20 crores and it was declared a HIT..

    And its sad that 2012 is the biggest HIT this year.. Most of the Bollywood biggies have underperformed this year.

  • INDICINE TEAM:i m wondering y r u not puting weekend collection of de dana dan???U said u have ur own source but still not able to bring us wht is the real collection of the day???? when will u put

  • hi,

    how can akshay’s films can be there, out of 4 films 2 are maha flop how can we consider result only watching the first week collection

  • Actually salman’s film(wanted) released on ramadan month & it has the huge monday(eid day) ever & other his films deserve what it does at the boxoffice.. Lets watch out the “VEER” where it is gaining the hype…

  • :saju day : i told u na go n shout at the top of your voice you will not be able to affect the business of the movie . KI was above average and Blue was average . go and get urself checked mr pshycopath .

  • 22.3 Crore Weekend for De Dana Dan

    De Dana Dan enjoyed excellent weekend of 22.3 crore. Movie surprised each and everyone from trade circle to general moviegoers because of its exceptional run at box-office over weekend. Before release, first weekend prediction was in range of 17-18 Crore, But 22.3 Crore is just huge acceleration from general predictions. However Monday saw the drop in morning shows, but excellent weekend collections ensures bountiful first week. If movie does Good in subsequent weeks, it can earn 34+ Crore in first week and 60+ Crore lifetime, and if it does OK to BAD from now on, it can earn up to 30 Crore in first week and will wrap under 45 Crore. Letís hope for best and we wish an excellent run of movie.

    Weekend Breakup (These are refined figure after getting more data) :

    Friday : 6 Crore

    Saturday : 7.6 Crore

    Sunday : 8.7 Crore

    Ė BollyBusiness

  • ^ Ya de dana dan collections are really surprising considering that it is trashed by the reviewers almost universally..
