Top Opening Weekend Collections in Bollywood

Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year has topped the list of all time highest opening weekend collections in Bollywood, edging out the highest grosser of all time Dhoom 3. SRK now has two films that have crossed the 100 crore mark in 3 days, as Chennai Express including paid previews collected 100.42 crore.

We have included all films that have crossed 50 crore in their first 3 days at the box office. Salman Khan dominates the list, what with all his 5 films released after 2012 featuring in the Top 15.  However, in the last couple of years, no film of his has swept the top records like Dabangg, Bodyguard and Ek Tha Tiger.

Hrithik Roshan has been consistent, both Krrish 3 and Bang Bang opened well. Singham Returns could be the turning point in Ajay Devgn’s career as far as records are concerned, even Action Jackson is expected to take a big start. Akshay Kumar films haven’t taken a big enough open in recent times, Holiday relied on word-of-mouth to take it over the 100 crore mark. Gabbar, Singh Is Bling or Brothers could be his big openers.

Sidharth Malhotra’s Ek Villain opened very well, but just fell a few lakhs below 50 crore, Ranbir Kapoor’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani was the biggest opener during the Post-IPL period. All eyes will now be on Aamir Khan’s PK.

  • yesterday I read several comments from haters like its only the weekend n dere is a difference of 15 crores or 20 crs blah blah…
    see shahrukh just replied to them n its like a slap in their face.. the official figures n boi fig. differs only by a meagre 8 crore which was the case wid d3 too..
    let me show.. boi published hny collect 97 crs in hindi n around 2 n something crores in tamil n telugu which accounts foh 100 crs approx n official figure r dere mentioned above… d3’s official figures are mentioned dere too n boi rated it as 95 crs foh the weekend.
    I hope now haters wil stabilise… hny is trending normal the way big films do like d3 kick CE

  • HNY wom is better than kick n d3, so it will trend better than kick or d3, hny already beat d3 weekned, at the end of its run hny will beat d3 lifetime record, abhi puri picture abhi baki hai mere dost Take the collections aside. Dhoom3 and Kick aren’t even close to HNY in terms of entertainment. #HNYBestFilmEver

  • HNY won’t be able to beat D3’s lifetime..that is confirmed now..
    KICK should be its target..
    Well,i am going to watch it tonight.

    sallu rocks.

  • Dhoom 3 had christmas week after weekend but our kings HNY has no holidays now so it made us tensed coz our kings film struggles in working days.Our kings film HNY needs to collect near 20 crores today to challenge dhoom3 lifetime figure

  • Pk is very difficult to predict. Here’s my prediction.

    First day: 30 to 34 crores.

    Weekend: 85 to 100 crores.

    First week: 140 to 150 crores.

    Second week: 55 to 60 crores.

    Lifetime: 270 to 320 crores. (Expecting it to run for more than 6 weeks.)

  • King dominates. Hny weekend overseas collection=49.7cr. Total worldwide gross 201cr in 3 days. Jai ho 170cr lifetime

  • Today I am meeting srk after winning a contest. I am so excited. I wish I get a chance to get intimate with him.
    Please pray for me guys.

  • It has been learnt that today’s early morning occupancy are 30% comparing to Sunday. Hence, collections of HNY would be around 13-14 Crores!! A Significant Crash!!
    By Tuesday, the collections of Kick and HNY almost become leveled! Sad for the king of the manipulation and his fans!

  • Action Jackson will be another Blockbuster and it will enter top five opening weekend collections.
    thanks @indicine.

  • king is only aamir khan. dhoom 3’s lifetime will remain safe. and PK will smash all these records. so aamir is the box office king and than 2nd is salman.

  • Salman has been the most unluckiest in terms of weekend release dates: ETT 1st 3 days- Holiday, working weekday, working weekday. KICK- Pre-EID normal weekend with no holidays . Dabangg 2, again normal weekend with no holidays, Jai Ho- working friday, republic day falling on a sunday so no advantage of an extra holiday. once Salman gets a holiday weekend like CE & HNY, he’ll surely be in top spot or top 3. anyways in top 3 highest grossing domestic films, Salman has two movies. KICK & ETT!

  • Good day everybody. I’m 23rd celebration Diwali Puja and morning go to picnic MANDALAY mountain. Mandalay is 2nd biggest capital of Myanmar. There were no signal for internet at mountain coz i use my Sumsung Note 3 mobile. Today only i arrived Yangon. I read previous articles and flying srk fans comments of indicine. Hats of flying srk fans bash about Salman and Salman’s fans. @Shaagy, navin, hrithik, Anand Malaysia and other fans of Salman thanks for against and responding with srk fans. Now, who is king???
    Coming on topic, KICK first day around 26cr, 2nd day 27cr and 3rd day 31cr clearly shows KICK growth but our combination movie TMK and JOKERS i means hny 1st day 44.97, 2nd day 31cr, 3rd day 31cr clearly shows dropping 30 percent from 1st day. And other hand producer not official figure out because Lal mirchi want to break Avtar lifetime collection. Manipulation collection 3day different 12cr from Boi or bollymovierevewez. Let cheering this is our time to go party with friends. @Indicine good to see your Question and Answer article. Thanks a lot….
