List of highest-grossing films in India

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of highest-grossing films in India, with gross revenue in Indian rupees. This is not an official tracking of figures, as reliable sources that publish data are frequently pressured to increase their estimates.[1] Box office collections have been steadily increasing in the 21st century, the main reasons attributed to the rise in ticket prices, and increase in number of theatres and prints of a film.[2] While Indian films are often at the top of the domestic box office, a report in The Indian Express claims that Hollywood films have begun giving Bollywood films heavy competition and 'a run for its money'.[3]

The highest-grossing film in India is Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017), with a total domestic gross of 1,253 crore (US$200 million).[4] The film broke many domestic records,[5] particularly the Hindi version which grossed 708.99 crore.[6] Dangal (2016), the highest-grossing Indian film worldwide,[7] was the previous highest-grossing domestic film, with a domestic gross of 542.34 crore.[8] The film collected over 106 crore in three days,[9] and broke the lifetime collection of previous record holder PK (2014) on the 17th day of its release.[10] Dangal is also the highest-grossing Indian film overseas, particularly in China.[7] Baahubali: The Beginning (2015), the previous second highest-grossing domestic film, had a very high opening record, which was later broken by its successor.[11] Records previously broken by PK included the largest number of screens,[12] highest worldwide gross,[13] and highest collection in a single territory (China) outside India.[14] Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) is the fourth highest-grossing film in India,[6] having broke eight records at the box office, including collecting 150 crore within the first five days of its release,[15] and also having broken opening records set by Baahubali: The Beginning.[15]

When adjusted for inflation, the highest-grossing film in India is Mughal-e-Azam (1960), with an adjusted domestic gross of 1,256 crore (US$200 million).[a] It is followed by Baahubali 2, then Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! (1994),[b] and then Sholay (1975),[c] each having an adjusted domestic gross exceeding 1000 crore. They are then followed by Mother India (1957), which was the highest-grossing Indian film prior to Mughal-e-Azam.[d]
