Ajay Devgn is one of the most popular superstars in Bollywood. His command over the masses is unparalleled. And with his next, De De Pyaar De coming out today (April 16, paid previews), everyone’s damn excited. We expect people to flock to the theatre to watch the movie. And we are sure, De De Pyaar De will earn a huge amount at the box office. Not only because of its story, but Ajay’s popularity too! As we said, the superstar has a massive following, especially in the Tier II & III cities. That will surely help give the movie a boost and his box office track record is proof!

Talking about Ajay Devgn’s track record, Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distributor) reveals to us exclusively, “Ajay Devgn has been an established star over the past few decades. Every star has their intrinsic value at the box office in terms of what their films can potentially do. And the kind of numbers that an Ajay Devgn film does on an average is pretty respectable in comparison to the kind of money spent on them. I just hope that he can do more films that are backed not only by star-power, but also by great scripts hope that it continues to happen, like it happened with DrishyamRaid and like it looks like happening with De De Pyaar De. I see no reason why his films can’t do very well.”

Check out all the collections of Ajay Devgn’s films over the past five years right here:

3Drishyam70
4Shivaay100
5Baadshaho80
6Golmaal  Again205
7Raid105
8Total Dhamaal150
Grand Total910

If you take a closer look at Ajay Devgn’s box office track record, you will realise he has raked in Rs 910 crore at the box office through 8 films in the past five years. That means, his average collection per movie has been Rs 115 crore (approx). Huge, isn’t it? In fact, he has contributed Rs 182 crore per year over the last five years, which is massive. Clearly, De De Pyaar De will also be a huge hit and according to us, should rake in more than Rs 75 crore at the box office. How excited are you about this one? Share your thoughts with us in the comment section below!

Directed by Akiv Ali, De De Pyaar De also stars Tabu and Rakul Preet Singh. With the movie kick-starting its box office campaign, we are quite excited to see the movie and how it performs. So, stay tuned to CineBlitz as we get you all the news and updates about De De Pyaar De.

Hit Bollywood films of 2019

The year started with Vicky Kaushal-starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike crossing 100 crores easily and reached 244 crore in India. In February came Gully Boy as well as Total Dhamaal with Rs 134 and Rs 150 crores, respectively. In the month of March, Kesari crossed Rs 151 crores, in June Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Bharat sailed at the box office with Rs 197 crore domestic collections. The same month, Kabir Singh became the highest-grossing film of the year so far with a collection of Rs 331.24 cr in India.

A month into the second half, Super 30 fetched Rs 150.43 crore in India. While the film is still running in some theatres, the final collection may see a slight increase in the numbers. This month has opened exceedingly well at the box office, with Mission Mangal and Batla House releasing on the same day. While the former has crossed Rs 107.56 crores in just five days, Batla House has reached to Rs 54.49 crores and with good word-of-mouth, it may touch Rs 100 cr club.

Even if they didn’t join the big three-digit order, there were projects that did well and almost got there. While Ajay Devgn-starrer De De Pyaar De made Rs 94 crores. Luka Chuppi at Rs 88 crores and Badla at Rs 87 crores were other big hits. Interestingly, three of the biggest flicks this year, Uri, Kabir Singh have set the cash registers ringing without any superstar power.

Here are some big upcoming releases:

The good days at the box office seem to be here to stay for the rest of the year, too, with Prabhas and Sharddha Kapoor’s Saaho, Nitesh Tiwari directorial Chhichhore, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff’s much-awaited film War, Ayushman Khurranna’s Dream Girl on the anvil. Then, of course, there are multi-starrers Housefull 4 and Salman’s Dabangg 3 that have also generated a lot of excitement among the cine-goers.

Hrithik Roshan’s box office track record is impressive and here’s proof

Before Super 30 releases, we analyse Hrithik Roshan’s track record at the box office in the last few years

Superstar Hrithik Roshan has won many hearts over the years. And while we haven’t seen him much on the big screen in the past few years, now he is all set to return to 70 mm with a bang in Super 30. Since Krrish 3 (2013), we’ve seen him take gaps. Mohenjo Daro‘s debacle was also an all new low for him. There were a lot of questions asked about his super-stardom and where he stands at the box office. But Hrithik Roshan bounced back with Kaabil once again proving his mettle. Now, two years later, the actor is coming out with his most unconventional and intriguing film, a biopic on mathematician Anand Kumar titled Super 30. While the film releases today (July 12), it is expected to do quite well at the box office, and with this we get down to analysing his previous track record.

If you look at Hrithik Roshan’s run at the box office through his last five films, you will realise that all the flak he faced was useless. All his last five releases, except for Mohenjo Daro, have earned more than Rs 100 crore at the box office. In fact, his average per film box office collection over the last five releases is Rs 102 crore, which is huge. Some top stars also don’t promise such a return. Clearly, he does command a fan following and has done some decent films or else how would the movies work?

Here’s a break down of Hrithik Roshan’s recent box office track record:

Sr. NoFilmBox office collection (in Rs crore)
1Agneepath120
2Krrish 3245
3Bang Bang175
4Mohenjo Daro60
5Kaabil110
Total710

Talking about Hrithik Roshan’s track record, Akshaye Rathi revealed to us exclusively, “Hrithik is one of those actors who has some incredible assets in his bucket. He has got the looks, he is phenomenal with action, he is fabulous with dancing and he is terrific as an actor. He also commands a massive fan following, so that helps his track record at the box office. But a lot of his choices, in my opinion, have not done justice to his merit and popularity as a star. A lot of the films he did, could’ve been done by any star. However, there are certain films like a Bang Bang or a Krrish, which no other actor can do, like he can! He needs to use his stardom optimally.”

With Super 30 out today (July 12), we are keen to know how the film performs and how much of praise does Hrithik Roshan garner. In the meantime, stay tuned to CineBlitz for more Bollywood news, updates and gossip.

Bollywood took a brilliant start to 2019 with back to back massive hits in the first three months. The first quarter was really fantastic with massive hits like Uri: The Surgical, Total Dhamaal, Kesari, Gully Boy and so on! The second quarter, on the other hand, did see some disappointments like Kalank, Student of the Year 2 and India’s Most Wanted. Things did slow down at the ticket window and the trade was worried. But Bollywood bounced back with back to back blockbusters – Bharat and Kabir Singh. And with that the Hindi film industry ended the first half of 2019 with a bang. But which is the highest grossing film of 2019 till now?

Well, with Kabir Singh continuing its box office run and with it estimated to earn a lifetime collection of Rs 250 crore, it is going to be the highest grossing film of the first half of 2019. Uri: The Surgical Strike and Bharat follow suit and complete the top 3 highest grossing films of the first half of 2019. Kesari, Total Dhamaal, Gully Boy, De De Pyaar De, Luka Chuppi, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Badla follow suit and complete the top 10 list.

Check out the list of top 10 highest grossing Bollywood films of the first half of 2019 right here:

6Gully Boy140
7De De Pyaar De105

9Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi90
