Ranveer Singh beats Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan to become the highest grossing actor of 2018

Ranveer Singh, Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor – check out the top 5 highest grossing actors of 2018!

Published at


The year started with a bang for Ranveer Singh at the box office as he scored his first hit of 2018 with Padmaavat. And if that wasn’t enough, he ended the year on an even higher note with Simmba. The two films have seen him race past all the ruling Khans – Salman, Shah Rukh, and Aamir, to rule the box office in 2018. But the change in order doesn’t end there. In what’s probably a first of sorts, Ayushmann Khurrana has ridden his way on good content to make a spot in the top five. Films like Zero and Thugs of Hindostan that sank at the box office also robbed the stars of their spots on this list, which was unheard of in the past. Let’s check out who did make it to the top five in 2018!

# Ranveer Singh – Rs 500* crore

Padmaavat and Simmba ensured that Ranveer earns the first spot on the list of the highest grossing actors of 2018. His performances, plus the high entertainment quotient of the films worked wonders, and the actor is ruling both, the audiences’ hearts as well as the box-office coffers.

# Akshay Kumar – Rs 375 crore

The hit machine had Padman and 2.0 to claim as hits, while Gold disappointed at the box office. Nevertheless, the actor had a successful run and he’s at the second spot.

# Ranbir Kapoor – Rs 342 crore

Sanju catapulted Ranbir Kapoor into becoming a part of this list. Ranbir’s success can be credited to a much-looked forward to biopic, topped with one of his best performances. With just one film in 2018, he’s covered the distance to make it at number three.

# Shahid Kapoor – Rs 330 crore

The actor had a hit in Padmaavat and a dud in Batti Gul Meter Chaalu. But a lack of resistance from any of the other stars is also what helped the actor make it to the list at fourth spot.

# Ayushmann Khurrana – Rs 200 crore

The surprise package of the year, Ayushmann, has not blindly followed the stars to this list, but has ridden high on good content. Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho make the cut as hits and spell number five on the list for the actor.

So this was the list of highest grossing actors of 2018, but who was the most entertaining out of the lot? Share with us your thoughts in the comments section below! Also stay tuned to Cine Blitz as we get you all the updates from the world of Bollywood right here.

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? Share with us your thoughts about Kesari in the comments section below! Also stay tuned to CineBlitz for more Bollywood news, updates and gossip!

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

Published at



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.
