Bollywood’s 100 Crore club

By Suleman Mobhani

Badrinath Ki Dulhania (4)

Reaching the coveted Rs. 100 crore mark has become a must for every big film in Bollywood. In this exclusive report, we take a look at some of the biggest hits that have reached the Rs. 100 crore mark segregating them on the basis of the number of days taken to get there.

Over the years we have seen an increasing number of films reach this coveted mark, be it since ticket prices were raised, a higher screen count or for that matter the film in question had content that appealed to the audience. While the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Chennai Express and Hrithik Roshan starrer Krissh 3 were initially the fastest films to reach the Rs. 100 cr mark, in just 4 days, Aamir Khan shattered this record with his film Dhoom 3 that entered the club in just 3 days. Joining Aamir are Shah Rukh Khan with Happy New Year and Salman Khan with Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo that also entered the club within three days of their release.

Ending 2015 on a high was Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon that managed it in 7 days of its release, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Bajirao Mastani featuring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra that despite going head to head with the SRK film Dilwale managed to do so in 9 days.

The Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Lisa Haydon and Nargis Fakhri starrer Housefull 3 started the tally for 2016 managing to reach the Rs. 100 cr mark in a span of 13 days, followed by the Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Sultan managing the same within just 3 days of its release. Following these films were the Akshay Kumar, Ileana D’Cruz and Esha Gupta starrer Rustom, and the Sushant Singh Rajput starrer M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story that has collected Rs. 103.40 cr in just 9 days of its release, and the Karan Johar directed Ae Dil Hai Mushkil featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma that managed to collect Rs. 102.05 cr in 12 days of its release and the Ajay Devgn starrer Shivaay that collected Rs. 100.05 crores in 31 days after its release. Ending 2016 was the Aamir Khan starrer Dangal, directed by Nitesh Tiwari, which was based on the life of wrestler and coach Mahavir Singh Phogat, that managed to collect Rs. 106.95 cr over its opening weekend, entering the club in just three days.

Starting the tally for 2017 was the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees that has collected Rs. 100 cr in 6 days of its release. Directed by Rahul Dholakia, the film which features Shah Rukh Khan in a grey shaded character had been doing brisk business at the box office despite the competition from the other release Kaabil starring Hrithik Roshan that released on the same day. Following Raees was the Hrithik Roshan starrer Kaabil, which managed to cross the Rs. 100 cr mark in 18 days of its release. Collecting Rs. 100.72 cr, the film, which is a revenge drama and features Hrithik in the role of a blind man, is slowly yet steadily making a mark at the box office. Post this was the Akshay Kumar starrer Jolly LLB 2 directed by Subhash Kapoor, which is a sequel to the 2013 Arshad Warsi – Boman Irani starrer Jolly LLB. The film managed to cross the Rs. 100.37 crore mark in 12 days of its release, by collecting Rs. 100.37 cr.
Now the latest entrant to the club is the recently released Varun Dhawan – Alia Bhatt starrer Badrinath Ki Dulhania. Directed by Shashank Khaitan, the film which is the second venture in the Dulhania series has managed to cross the Rs. 100 crore mark in 14 days. In fact the film has raked in Rs. 100.74 Cr at the box office in 14 days.
