B-town ladies and films with strong female characters had a fantastic run in 2018. From Padmaavat to Pad Man, Pari, Raazi, Stree, Hichki, Veere Di Wedding, Soorma, Kedarnath and so on; each and every film not only got appreciation, but also raked in the moolah at the box office. The ladies gave a good takkar to the men and looks like this year is not going to be any different. With an interesting line up of movies, 2019 witnessed the best January till now. Yami Gautam’s Uri: The Surgical Strike has raked in Rs 200 crore till now. Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, on the other hand, has also performed well at the box office.

Amrita Rao also made a brilliant comeback with Thackeray, which won a lot of accolades for her, apart from earning a decent amount at the ticket window. Though she gave a tremendous performance, the movie had a sub-par run at the domestic box office. However, it was enough to make her a part of our list of highest grossing actresses of January 2019. Check out the whole list right here!

1. Yami Gautam

Movie: Uri – The Surgical Strike

Box Office Collection: Rs 200 crore*

Aditya Dhar’s Uri: The Surgical Strike revolved around the devastating Uri attacks and India’s fightback with a surgical strike in Pakistan. While Vicky Kaushal killed it with his performance, Yami Gautam’s intense act also won a lot of hearts. The story, the execution and the message were the major factors in the film’s success. And it has made Yami the highest grossing actress of the month too!

2. Kangana Ranaut

Movie: Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi

Box Office Collection: Rs 75 crore*

A biopic on the life of a revolutionary freedom fighter like Rani Lakshmibai was exciting. But the fact that it had Kangana in it, playing the titular character as well as co-directing it, meant audiences went to watch it in large numbers. The story and grandeur were loved and Kangana as usual was praised for her act. The clash with Thackeray did affect the movie, but it has earned Rs 75 crore till now, making Kangana the runner up in our list.

 

3. Amrita Rao

Movie: Thackeray

Box Office Collection: Rs 20 crore

Amrita Rao has been away from the big screen since a while now. But her return with Thackeray as Meenatai Thackeray (Balasaheb Thackeray’s wife) was really impressive. She emoted the character well and people loved her in the movie. With the biopic raking in Rs 20 crore at the domestic box office, she comes in at number three on our list.

 

So that was our list of the top three grossing actresses of January 2019. But who was your favourite? 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.

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.

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.
