Since the new millennium, Indian movies have started gaining momentum and popularity. In fact, the number of theatres, as well as the number of movie-goers, have multiplied manifold. With that the box office collections have increased for each film, as a result of which the producers have been able to invest more into their next movies and make them bigger and better. The Rs 100 crore club started in 2008 and by 2017, we have seen a film enter the exclusive Rs 500 crore club too. Clearly, we’ve seen a lot of progress, but who is leading the race and which films are the highest box office grossers of all time? Well to know that and more, check out this list of top 10 highest grossers of all time. Read on…

# Baahubali 2: The Conclusion

Lifetime box office collection: Rs 510.99 crore

Prabhas and Rana Daggubati’s Baahubali 2: The Conclusion was a Telugu film dubbed in Hindi, but it became the highest grosser of all time in India. The hype around the film courtesy the super success of its prequel, Baahubali: The Beginning and the fact that everyone wanted to know the answer to the question of the decade – ‘Why did Kattapa kill Baahubali?’, made everyone flock to the theatres to watch the film, thus enabling SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus to rake in a huge amount and become the first Indian film to earn in excess of Rs 500 crore through its Hindi version.

# Dangal

Lifetime box office collection: Rs 387.38 crore

Aamir Khan’s inspirational sports drama of a real-life wrestler and his daughters – who go on to become India’s first world-class female wrestlers – won everyone’s hearts. Not only did Dangal’s story inspire many across the world, but the screenplay and performances made it a definite watch with great repeat value, allowing it to collect Rs 387.38 crore at the domestic box office.

# Sanju

Lifetime box office collection: Rs 342.53 crore

The uncut biopic on the life of a Bollywood star like Sanjay Dutt had already created a huge buzz. But an interesting storyline along with a brilliant performance by Ranbir Kapoor meant that the movie-goers were bowled by Sanju. A strong word-of-mouth publicity furthermore enabled it to rake in Rs 342.53 crore at the box office.

# PK

Lifetime box office collection: Rs 340.80 crore

Aamir Khan’s PK was the first film to enter the coveted Rs 300 crore club and it was all because of the actor’s class act, the novel storyline revolving around an alien and his trysts with the cultural dogmas in India along with a really good screenplay that enabled the film to earn such a huge amount of money when it released in 2014.

# Tiger Zinda Hai

Lifetime box office collection: Rs 339.16 crore

The action-packed sequel to the superhit film, Ek Tha Tiger, this Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer caught the fancy of cinema-lovers. The fact that everyone wanted to know what happened to Tiger (Salman) and Zoya (Katrina) after Ek Tha Tiger made people flock to the theatres. The hard-hitting and emotional plot also connected with the audience, making it run in cinemas for several week and rake in the moolah.

# Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Lifetime box office collection: Rs 320.34 crore

Salman Khan’s heart-warming film about a mute girl lost in India and Bajrangi’s struggle to help her get back home in Pakistan pulled the heartstrings of many. The performances, music and the engaging story made it a sure shot blockbuster.

# Padmaavat

Lifetime box office collection: Rs 302.15 crore

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus featuring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor might have been mired with controversy, but once it released, the movie fans just couldn’t get enough of it. The grandeur and the performances moved the audience, and in turn, helped it become Bhansali’s biggest film till date.

# Sultan

Lifetime box office collection: Rs 300.45 crore

The story of an underdog, fallen wrestler in the new world of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) with a heart-warming backstory of his personal life is something that any movie lover would want to see, right? Well, that’s what happened when the film released and after running several weeks at the box office, it entered the Rs 300 crore club.

# Dhoom 3

Lifetime box office collection: Rs 284.27 crore

The third edition of the hit Dhoom franchise starring Aamir Khan in a double role and Katrina Kaif was reason enough for it to be a huge hit and that’s what happened. The interesting plot twists and the screenplay really kept the audience at the edge of their seats, enabling it to rake in the moolah.

# Krrish 3

Lifetime box office collection: Rs 244.92 crore

Though the third part of the Koi Mil Gaya/Krrish franchise wasn’t such an intriguing and entertaining film, but the fact that it was a new movie in the franchise made it rake in the money. In fact, the subject was really good on paper, but had the execution been better, we are sure, Krrish 3 could have even made Rs 300 crore plus.

These are the current top 10 highest grossers of all time. If you see, all these films are biggies and with several massive films releasing in 2019 including Brahmastra Part 1, Saaho, Bharat and Housefull 4, we wonder if this list will change or stay the same!

kesari box office collection day 1 akshay kumar parineeti chopra

Akshay Kumar – Parineeti Chopra’s Kesari is all set to release tomorrow (April 21). Being Holi, the movie will enjoy a partial holiday on the first day. In fact, with a huge buzz around the movie, everyone’s been eager to watch the movie too. So clearly, all these factors would enable it to earn a massive amount at the box office, around Rs 20 crore. And our trade expert – Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distributor) also agrees with us. In fact, he says that Holi might be a disadvantage, but still the movie will open well.

Talking about Kesari‘s buzz, Akshaye reveals to us exclusively, “It looks really good. Going by the traction, despite the holiday disadvantage (several theatres open only post 2 pm), it will open to good numbers. It can easily rake in Rs 13 – 15 crore at the box office. Maybe even more. The buzz and reports are fantastic. So it will perform very well.” With 3500 screens at its disposal, we are sure Kesari will grow and rake in over the first weekend. And with no competition, though it clashes with Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, it will earn a huge amount and post a huge profit at the box office!

Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari chronicles the Battle of Sargarhi (1897). It speaks about the valor and bravery of 21 Sikh soldiers who fought a massive battle with more than 10000 Afghan invaders. How they tried to protect Fort Sargarhi and the back story of their leader – Havildar Ishar Singh (Akshay Kumar) forms the most of the story. How excited are you about this one?

Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota box office collection prediction: Radhika – Abhimanyu’s film will earn Rs 1 crore on day 1

Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota box office collection: Radhika Madan – Abhimanyu Dassani’s film will take a slow start on the first day, predicts our trade expert

MardKoDardTaiwanRelease

Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, starring Radhika Madan and Abhimanyu Dassani, is one of the most exciting films of the year. However, with it being Abhimanyu’s debut movie and Radhika’s second, expectations at the box office should not be kept high. In fact, with a low buzz in the trade means that it might not set the box office on fire with the numbers. But it can surely win hearts! Our trade expert – Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distributor) also feels the movie will take a slow start. But it will surely, grow over the weekend.

Talking about the buzz, Akshaye Rathi revealed to us exclusively, “Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota is interesting in its niche place. With Kesari coming along, which a huge bulk of people are going to watch, will affect it. However, the movies don’t cater to the same audience. While Kesari is massy, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota caters to the urban, cream audience. The markets are different too. But with a niche release, it will take a slow start.” With 400 – 500 screens to its credit and a low buzz, Akshaye says it is tough to predict the movie’s day 1 collection. However, trade sources reveal to us that it can earn Rs 0.75 – 1 crore on the opening day.

Directed by Vasan Bala and produced by Ronnie Screwvala, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota will also face opposition from Akshay Kumar’s Kesari. However, we are sure the story will win the audience over. For those of you who don’t now, the film is about a man who doesn’t feel any pain. Our reviewer – Aakanksha Naval-Shetye says it is a must-watch. This positive word-of-mouth publicity will surely help the film.

It’s Alia Bhatt v/s Ranbir Kapoor as RRR clashes with Shamshera at the box office in 2020

Alia Bhatt’s RRR and Ranbir Kapoor’s Shamshera will clash at the box office as they release on July 31, 2020

alia bhatt ranbir kapoor clash rrr versus shamshera

While lovebirds Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are celebrating her 26th birthday today, seems like they might have a clash in the future. Well, not on personal grounds but we are talking about one at the box office! Yes, it is going to Alia Bhatt v/s Ranbir Kapoor as RRR will clash with Shamshera at the box office in 2020. Don’t believe us? Check out the release date of both the movies. Yash Raj Film’s Shamshera was announced last year. Starring Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor, the movie was scheduled to release on July 31, 2020. Yesterday (March 14), SS Rajamouli and team announced that Alia Bhatt was a part of his next, RRR. Also starring Ajay Devgn, Ram Charan and Jr. NTR, the makers decided for July 31, 2020, for the south film’s release too!

This clearly means the two lovers, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor have a mega box office clash up their sleeves. While RRR is a Telugu film about two legendary warriors, Shamshera is a Hindi action-adventure movie about a dacoit tribe taking their revenge from the Britishers in the 1800s. Both this period dramas are being made on a large scale. While Ranbir has already kick-started his shoot, Alia will join SS Rajamouli and team pretty soon. We wonder what will happen when these two will collide at the box office.

Watch the Shamshera teaser here:

Though two films can easily sustain at the box office, we feel either of them will surely shift. This is because of the fact that the genres are nearly similar and both are massive movies. Ranbir Kapoor – Alia Bhatt are working together on Brahmastra. The part 1 of the trilogy is all set to release during Christmas this year. In the meantime, stay tuned to CineBlitz for more news and updates about RRR and Shamshera‘s clash.
